^^ Oh man I was laughing so loud my co-worker from two offices down actually walked in to ask what the ruckus was...

post #26822 of 39317
Challenge from last night for my four year old. Tough but I merited a thumbs up from her after slogging through one project. Used my chrono to time how disgustingly slow I was.

That sporty bezel is just too casual to me.  But then I don't wear loafers with a suit either.  So I think Warren's right on the money with the Explorer (1). Unless you're looking for a watch that is much cheaper, then the Hamiltons and Tissots, even Bill's new Seiko (OK, don't fight Bill for his new Seiko, I mean one like Bill's new Seiko),are logical.



 

 



Could not agree more.

Piaget makes some very high quality watches, and they are one company that also makes very high quality quartz movements (sometimes supplying Cartier with really high grade ones like the Chronoreflex movement).  I hope to add some form of manual wind Altiplano to my collection someday.

No.  

Hey JB, agree with most of your suggestions other than Panerai (particular when it comes to blending in an not attracting thieves).  If the OP should avoid a Rolex due to the cyclops on most, or the Tank Solo because its a very recognizable design, then I doubt a Panerai would be a good choice.  Its a very recognizable design, and its the size of a tuna can so its very noticeable and won't easily fit under most dress shirts.  To me, the Panerai's size just makes it stand out so blatantly.  Just my 2 cents.

Great watch...looks like you have started a new ad campaign for Patek..."You never actually own a Patek, you merely wear it while making sparkling hair accessories.";)   Glad to hear the project was a success bro.

In this photo, it looks like your Reverso is saying goodbye to the Panerai.  ;)

Yes, head on shoulder.  It's very sweet....

 

As for getting out of the LOL situation, Nuke and Stitchy, I tabbed quickly over to my FB page and showed her the video my wife uploaded last night of my 2 year old almost twerking.  I am not ashamed of my TWAT brethren or discussions, but I humbly submit the argument that my two year old is prettier and cuter than most of you.  Especially when she is almost-twerking.

I thought some of the Radiomir's wore smaller than their 45mm advertised size?  I guess it all depends on how big you wrists are to call 45mm smaller.
