I've never been a fan of the cream dial 16550, so I think you made a great choice.  Apparently, many people didn't like the lack of contrast between white gold markers and the dial, so it changed on the next model.  But its those quirky things that have made it collectible, even if its not your taste or mine. Congrats again on a great find!

I'm as much of an impulse buyer as anyone but this one is going to take a little time! smile.gif Most likely toward the end of the year.

good luck man. Theyre great watches...this is my second. I had been tossing the idea around of a higher end watch than what i currently had....I really didnt anticipate leaving with it because i take FOREVER to decide on a purchase. I justified it because I had to get rid of my sports car when the baby came. A fella has to have his toys. No buyers remorse though...its really nearly impossible to go wrong with them. Cant wait to see it on your wrist!

Its kinda the end of the year already, no? devil.gif

derk - Smart move using that money while the baby is still new. They tend to get more expensive as the years go by. Both the watches and the kids.

New shoes for old friend

Nice BP - we don't see many around here. Your thoughts on it compared to other higher end brands? Love to hear thoughts from an owner..

I don't own any gold watches (yet), but when I do, I will definitely have it on a brown croc. Just love that warm color combo

I was able to work out a sweet deal that ended up costing me nothing out of pocket so it was almost impossible to say no smile.gif


DerekS, congrats on the pickup! Lovely piece and great photo!

Nautilus blue dial, with Edward Green Sandringham Midnight Navy Shell.




Woh, nice EGs, ddrees! Wear that blue with much pride!

Speaking of "nontraditional" colors, Leffot has a blazing new Arca pair in aubergine, a deep shade of purple. I never thought I'd see myself wearing purple shoes, but I do have a lot of purple in my wardrobe (dress shirts, ties). And I now wear cherry, navy and olive shoes with abandon. Will I get myself an aubergine pair of Arcas? Time will tell...

Sorry for the terse message; on vacation for the week so will post more when I have a better internet connection! Just wanted to touch base with my TWAT brethren!

Thank you sir.

 

Between you and Namor I'm not sure who had more to do with planting the seed. But I knew I just had to get some blue shoes. Anyway the opportunity to get these could not be passed on. I still have a pair of blue Galways on their way, and with these in hand the wait won't be as bad.

Oh man, I saw those Arcas, and I'm sorely tempted. I keep telling myself that it's cheaper than my watches...

the arcas are one of the most beautiful shoes ever designed.
