mimo - I will do as promised. I actually did wear the 5040 for Dino and Mrs Dino as Dino had indicated that he appreciated the tonneau case, etc.
I have never looked at an AP RO as closely as I did when Dino was sporting his, and I must say that the finishing is first rate. The skeletonized rotor - should have taken a pic - majestically showed off the lovely movement. I dare say that as much as I love my PP 5711, Dino's AP showed off the movement in a much better way. The 5711's cal 324 movement is obscured by the non-skeletonized rotor.

Thats awesome. Nice to hear you guys had a blast.
Next time maybe ms upton will join you.
Mrs Dino joined us! She was lovely and incredibly conversant when it came to watches and watch collecting - as befits Dino's partner in life. Totally had a blast and it was great just chatting about stuff aside from watches too.
I would not mind at all if Ms Upton joined us at some future meetup.
Why do I love this woman so much? Let me count and try to grasp the ways.

How does it go? "We wear masks to protect the people we love" - perhaps including our own selves? But still we frequent online forums to obtain some sense of community from like-minded folks who have interesting perspectives to share. Sometimes we get lucky and we meet them in real life and they actually turn out to be first rate people in the flesh.
Anyway, here's what I look like when I walk the streets of Gotham. The heavy duty gloves help protect the watch.
