Mmmm...smooth bezel, oyster bracelet, blue dial, stick markers.....way to do DateJust.  If I were to steal one, I would definitely want it to be exactly like this yours. :)

Wow, some great stuff lately! I love the watch RogerP and DLJr. The red dial really pops, and it looks incredibly well made. Red is a very underused color. I love the Reverso rouge and this red, so unique.

Frills, TC, your watches are both beautiful. Frills, that is easily the nicest fake I have ever seen :roflmao:

Mimo, I thought I would share my get-up with you today. No socks, loafers, and jeans. Doesn't get better on a 60 degrees and sunny Friday!

All you need now is some kind of nylon tracksuit top and you'll be completely anti-mimo.

 

But the watch is nice.

Mimo, you're very kind. If I had the means I would let...

Thought I'd wrestle the Duchess for hers for a pic or two. What you learn through a lens eh?

I can't remember ever noticing the roman numerals! (purchased 18 months apart) Also, what a mess it is. Looks like time for some work.

Anyway, is it twee to have matching? (to the untrained eye) Don't know. However, she has had many compliments and the pair have been noted on many occasions, she tells me.

Gonna add to the Rolex pile! Wearing 114270 today. To save money for future watch purchases I go to Chinatown for haircuts!

Keepin' it G, Frilly!  I can feel that you get a great deal of pleasure from that Explorer, despite its relative modesty next to PP stable-mates.  One man's luxury watch, is Frilly's favourite pair of old slippers. :)

ROFLMAO that Frilly would post replicas. Hilarious.

Frilly's got fake watches like Upton's got fake....well....you know.... shog[1].gif



Cleav, man I really love that DJ. Not in the market for one, but always figured I'd opt for the smooth / sticks / oyster combo. And I like the blue as well. Magnifique.



But I will also say this once again: thank God my wife is not into watches.

Keith T how right you are.

Today we had a lovely day out together, rare treat with the 'flower garden' (our two girls) at school. She kopped a new pair of C & J for "picking the girls up"!





and mentioned when I was looking at IWCs how she liked the new ladies rolex, seen in a magazine! (thats code for go look)

Stitchy, it was pretty bad (at least based on my expectations). There were 2 customers (well 1 and a couple who were together) in the store and at least 2 staff members not doing much of anything. I wanted to check out the MUT and noticed they only had it in gold. I asked if they had a stainless available and the guy looks up and says "what you see is what we have". I asked about pricing and he says "I would have to look that up". I ask if he could do that and he says "we don't have it in store and I would have to order it from another store with a deposit". I was going to try on the gold one to get a better feel for how it looked on wrist, but I just left. The Rolex boutique a few feet away was still open and only had 1 customer inside and I thought about inquiring re: BLNRs, but I didn't bother and just called it a day.

Always sad, to hear when people working on a shop can't be bothered to assist a customer.  When I worked in retail years ago, I always enjoyed working with customers.  Anyone too lazy to look up a price or to actually engage a customer is in the wrong business.
