So, for those who think that I am just a Rolex hater, I decided that I was going to pick up a Submariner. I did not want it in classic black as it is just too plain, looks just like every other watch (that ripped of Rolex design) and is too "inside the box". I finally settled on the 50th Anniversary Edition M serial number as it was the last of the run and perhaps easier to find in mint condition. After about a month of searching and negotiating, I finally settled on and made a deal on an absolutely mint and complete one. Should receive it this week.

Considering you wear a Nautilus in the sandbox, that's a very sweet thing to say!  But anyway, here they are: the monster in its natural environment (for me anyway)

Any JLC UTM owners that can comment as to how it wears and what it's like as an EDC? Its at the top of the list for my next purchase and my local AD didnt have one for me to try on. The normal ultra thin felt a bit too... well thin. The master chrono felt much better on the wrist, I know the moon is a bit thicker though and was wondering if anyone could share how they like theres. Other options are the GO panomatic lunar, and the IWC portuguese. Although i think i prefer the more traditional dial of the JLC over the GO.

JLC hands down for me, of those 3. i love the MUT. i think of trading for one all the time.

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.

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.

Here's a question that hopefully isn't too far off the main topic; but I figured that this place would be the best to ask:

What do you guys do regarding the shirt sleeve? I have watches that have some size, but are not unreasonable for what they are (speedmaster 9300 and hamilton khaki) that I wear most often. They don't fit well under the shirt sleeve when buttoned. Does anyone else have this issue? Do you just leave the shirt unbuttoned at the sleeve, move the button, or is there an alternate resolution?

i cant recall moving a button, though i have had the thought to. most of the time i dont have an issue, but with some shirts, they dont fit over my JLC or panerai. i just try and get the cuff to go over the side of the case and thats enough for me.

but tbh, as soon as i get to my desk, i take off my jacket and roll up my sleeves, so for most of the time its a non issue.

i know some people (dereks) leaves his shirt sleeve unbuttoned, but my OCD would not allow that.

I had the buttons moved on one shirt but most others the watch slides right under.  I wear a Hamilton Khaki as well.

JLC is most definitely the best of that bunch. Not only does it look the most classic, but has the best movement.
