Frills, there's no way it's wrong to wear that watch with a suit. You may be the only person in the world who actually thinks it's suitable for the beach and the sand box. It certainly looks like it belongs there anyway. And by the way, whatever the shade of your suit, the soft sheen coming off it says "really expensive Super 180's (& cashmere?)" or something. Tell more please. Either way, it looks suitable to live with a PP collection. Awesome. Although a navy tie as well..not sure.
Nuke, that's brilliant news. Hearty congratulations, TWAT-bro. This is a thread of superior intellect as well as manners, nobody doubted you I'm sure. :)
Obviously you and I see eye to eye about this.
Also, this iPhone takes decent pics:
Also, those aren't my bare thighs and the edge of my boxer briefs reflected in the mirror polished bezel edge. Just saying.
stitchy - the presentation box is quite beautiful, you're right. And since I keep mine closed and tucked away, it has that nice lovely smell of leather and lacquered wood every time I open it. MmMmMmM.... I think the fact that there is one on offer from eBay at $800 is a bit ridiculous, but with $5,000 Patek cuff links I guess anything is possible.
I have the same watch, and I like it quite a bit, but always feel like it is in the middle of being dressy and sporty. Been thinking about going back to a Sub or other diver (maybe a JLC?) and a dress watch for work... Just can't bring myself to move past those rules.
I have a killer wood Patek box that I picked up in a partial trade with a fellow collector a little while back. Anybody have any idea what something like that might be worth on fleabay? It's quite beautiful but I don't really have a use for it. I also got an OE honey Patek strap - but that is something I can use at some point.
A friend of mine has one. He was enamored with it originally, but he grew tired of it and now he rarely wears it. He has lots of other watches, so the Type XX doesn't get much wrist time. Its a nice watch, but its never been on my list of "Must haves."
