I have no idea when I would wear something like that, but I think it's more interesting and better realised.

Mimo your sons watch looks great!  Something he will hopefully have for years!

In the mean time, thank you all so much for your kind comments on this.  I thought I'd drop by quickly with a simple wrist shot.  My son is delighted with his new watch, and it looks great on him!  Here it is, along with the watch my father gave me:

 

 

mimo - excellent choice and a great "starter" mechanical piece!  Great pic!

Not to revisit a topic that fellow TWAT-ters would rather leave behind, but what G-Shock is this lovely young woman wearing?

post #23990 of 34989

In other news, G-shock is coming out with some metallic variants:

 

 

 

Personally, I like the simple, cheaper square ones but that is just me. Still undecided as to whether I will actually pull the trigger...decisions.gif

This is so cool on so many levels cheers.gif

Mimo! Looks great on him! I am sure he will wear it and love it for years to come. It fits his wrist perfectly.

What is the case/bracelet.  Is it treated steel?  Its nice but not very distinctive. I'd rather see you get something that is totally different from anything you have, and which is something you will only see from Rado.  I really like Kaplan's suggestion.

Great photo and great choice for your son's first mechanical watch!  Well done Mimo.

Agreed. This is a great tradition and will be a great memory for both of you.

Things like this are IMHO the best part about this thread

post #23996 of 34989

The best part about this thread was the full frontal of Kate Upton wearing that perp cal minute repeater. And it's just a few pages back ...

It is the newest version of their high-tech ceramic... supposedly it is almost indestructible. I hear where you guys are coming from and that model is much more distinctive and completely different from anything else I own. I've just started this search so thank you all for your thoughts and opinions. nod[1].gif


and I missed this one earlier... wow.

The Cosmopolite is beautiful as a piece of art, but my goodness is it large! I just think that 48mm is unwearable for me. I think it would have been nice if they had foregone the tourby.
post #24000 of 34989
^ I didn't realize it's that big! No way I could pull that off. Seems it would be much more practical without the tourby... agreed.
