Sad watch selling makes Keith T sad.

Didn't know that you had a Capeland though stitchy (or maybe I had forgotten it).

At one time I was pretty close to getting the silver-dialed version.

He can't have those.  I want those.  He has to have other things.

There we go.  Holding hands with three close male friends for a brunch watch photo is no longer even close to the campest thing Frily's done on TWAT!  Respect, Frilly!

There are Panerais as small at 42mm (I think), and the big Radiomirs do wear smaller.  But only smaller than the tuna can Luminor, as Dino said.  They are cool, and after playing with some I really get it.  But they're never going to be subtle.

Considering your NMWA frenzy of late, I imagine this could have been an emergency response to Mrs Stitch's threatening the same!  Around your NECK!

I have a really bad Panerai itch right now. I really dig the Panerai 351 and 388

Then again, I have an itch for other watches too. Or maybe..... I just need to take a shower.

Love the Speedy!  I didn't like it in the beginning because I lusted after the Planet Ocean in black.  Since my fiance upgraded me from Planet Ocean dreams to GMT II dreams, I like the Speedy a lot more.  This was only a few short months ago and now I am not a huge fan of the PO.

post #26843 of 39317
always love dat speedy.

PAM love for Stitches. The 112 is automatic? I have the 111.

Gents, the highs and lows of my day…

Ordered a new croc strap for my Radiomir and it finally arrived yesterday. Off I popped today, squared the bill and off yer man went to swap it for me. In the meantime I took the opportunity to try on these beauties inlove.gif

Whilst obviously smitten yer man interrupts with profuse apologies- they had ordered the wrong size strap censored.gif

Was given bag full of brochures, books catalogues. Any good to anyone before I take the cellophane off?



and encouraged to bring the Duchess next time so they can sell to us both uhoh.gif

New strap ordered so have to be patient, new PP dream sequence though! On the whole, today was a good day!biggrin.gif
post #26847 of 39317

post #26848 of 39317
Thanks. I was intrigued by the manual wind as well, same reason for kopping.

Looks like you had fun, even if they didn't get in the correct size strap.  Some great watches...although to me the Nautilus belongs on a bracelet.  Without the bracelet I find its like getting 1/2 the design.   The others are stunning.

 

Bringing the Duchess...that sounds dangerous ! ;)

And very, very expensive!

I had lots of fun, certainly opened my eyes. I understand the Naut to be different in many senses to the two others and I get that a bracelet would be better. I actually asked if the strap was black or grey. That said I was smitten by them all. On the wish list...

Thanks Dino
