Breguet cufflinks are great looking.  I like the ones that use pieces of dials, although, I'm guessing its a way of using up parts of dials that were imperfect?  The other reason I like the Breguet links is that they Patek ones seem reasonably priced ;).

Frickin'A man I have been looking at those too.  9907.BB.OX calling my name.  Voices getting louder.........

Those were the first one I saw, at the Breguet boutique in NY. But then I saw the ones that looked like parts on an enameled dial... Yum

That's gorgeous.  I like the lapis lazuli one too.  When those voices speak...

 

Your public await a new vicarious Frillfrenzy.  Might I also remind you that you do not currently own a dive watch.  Just saying.

I'm looking for something a bit specific and would love any help or guidance. I want to buy myself a vintage 5513 or 5512 Sub from my birth year ('89, I'm a child), but am having trouble sourcing besides eBay members with little feedback. Anyone know anyone in the NYC / Philadelphia area who specializes in vintage Rolex? I'd ideally like to inspect in person before buying it and would most likely pay cash.

Thanks, and apologies if this sort of thing isn't allowed here!

You need a specialist personal broker service.  You need the Stitchmeister.  Calling @in_stitches

Have any of you used "polywatch" on your acrylic crystals and if so have any pointers for me before i give it a go. My 1601 DJ has been in dire need of a scratch removal and now that school has slowed down for the holidays i'd like to spend some time on it. 

 

Also as an aside, is it possible to change my SF username? I didn't anticipate actually being on the forums much when i joined a year ago and so i just used my name but now that I'm hooked on TWAT (:lol:) id like to change it to something more "conversational" if possible.

I suspect that we are going to start the year right. Stay tuned...

Dive watch? Thought I had that covered...

I knew you were going to say that.  But you're possibly the only man in the world who even gets his Nauti wet, let alone rolls around on the beach with it.  No, I think we both know I meant something more...utilitarian. :)

But have you ever really seen a Nautilus in the wild? Despite its relative ubiquity on watch forums or gatherings of watch geeks, in day to day life (at least mine) it remains a rare and elusive beast. I was fortunate to have seen one earlier today.

My point exactly!  You have the avocet.  What you're lacking is a common shag. So to speak.

post #27223 of 39136

The is an interesting Patek ad.  Also I did not know the Nauti was a dive watch!

Nautiluses grow on trees? I've been looking in all the wrong places.
