Stitch, I know you're in the middle of a NMWA* frenzy, and I feel your pain.  But you know if you slip your new Inis Meain sweater on and your new shell shoes this weekend and go do something relaxed and fun with that Panny on your wrist, and they will all be so perfect together and you know it, then it will suddenly feel like something on which you are no longer able to compromise.

 

Just saying.

 

You have had a lot of courier/postman visits lately, haven't you?

 

And Mrs Stitch has raised her voice** within the last two days, hasn't she?

Multitasking: watch, shoes and socks.

very lulzy my man. also, you do make a good point. but if i sell the 112, the majority of the proceeds will go direct to my saving account. and even if i do wear it with my sweater, it would be solely for the sake of wearing it, not because i have a desire to be wearing it and i know it will end up right back in the drawer as i prefer the DJ. for me, if im forcing myself to wear a watch only so its not doing nothing, not because i am jonesing to wear it, that is not a good sign.

this happens every time i have more than 2 watches. maybe i am just a 2 watch guy? THE HORROR!!!!

oh le sigh, what to do.

roger, that looks great!

^ That's not too dissimilar from my experiences; between my sub and my mk XV I hardly ever wear my 177 :-/

At least part of it, is that I like to alternate the two automatics to keep them ticking.

Not to throw cold water on the plan but you might find that the "softness" in the Rolex resale market is positively bullish compared to the Panerai resale market (based on my highly unscientific tracking as I hunt down a 114).

Alden Dark Brown Suede chukkas? If so, here's my matching low-top plain toe version! If not, then fail on my part. Happy Friday everyone!

Frills - good call - Pantherella OTC.

ReversoLover - shoes are navy Carmina (but yes, the lighting is so crappy they could be any dark colour in that pic). Nice Rolex!

i dont mind resetting my watches, it more that between the aesthetics of the rolex and JLC regarding casual and dressy, i am pretty much covered and i am clearly leaning towards these two and leaving the panny in hiding.

this does not make me happy. frown.gif

well, i like the rolex more, and based on what i paid and the subsequent panerai price increase, i think i can actually make $ on the 112, g-d willing.

I love that series from Pantherella.  I think I have four variants of that one you have, but I have the ones that hit mid-calf.  I have grown to love OTC socks for the whole no-sag all-day thing.
