was thinking about this as well, but have yet to try it on.

for those of you wondering "why the hell would you get a Rado?" ..... it's a (semi) long story, but let's just say it involves family! happy.gif

thats a funky watch. not bad at all, but i think i like the second one a lot better.

Gah, you guys are killing me with the ROs and the Lange! Stunning!

Beautiful ROs everyone - if we're spreading G Genta love, how come no Nautiluses? Nautili??? Who knows, but let's see some eared beauties! Here's my contribution for the day, took a page out of nofrills' book...

Haha very nice ReversoLover! Not a Reverso day for you today?

Well, it's Halloween. Going trick or treating tonight with my girls. No problem with the costume, since I am always in costume:

The wingtips are by Corthay, a model called Vendome. Color is olive with heavy burnishing (so it actually appears brown either at first glance or depending on the lighting). Picks up on the olive elements in my tie I think.

Finally!  A comment about the kryptonite-hued shoes... Hehe.  Good one!  


Love this pair from Corthay.  The patina is awesome and the construction is second to none.  Shoes are a year old and get worn about once every two weeks, rain (like today) or shine.

Thanks!  Can't very well dress as Wayne or Batman... I mean.  That's no costume, really.  So I dressed up like the boy scout from Metropolis.

I agree... hope to try on the all black one (I believe it's the r5.5) on this weekend or next.

not exactly a ringing endorsement! LOL... leave it to me to get Stitchy to use the word "funky" in describing a watch. plain.gif

here are some quick picks of the senator we bought. as an aside, i think the glasshute box is one of the the nicest/coolest i have seen.

^^^ Very nice stitchy! My fave Senator is the three-hander with the enamel-look dial.
post #26039 of 34912
^^ Wow. Very nice. How about some pics of the super cool box???

indeed!

well, right now it is sitting in a county mandated hold period. once we can legally sell it, assuming it goes to ebay, not flipped to a dealer, i will get you all the pics your heart desires.
