Today was dark and rainy, but this golden sun on my wrist cheered me up considerably. I had a new rubber strap from AP installed today, the same found on the City of Sails edition. The brown leather strap was ok, but a shorter rubber strap made it much more comfortable. The butterlly clasp is totally centered now, makes all the difference.

Sorry for the dreary cellphone pic, I promise to return with better photography biggrin.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Met up for drinks with one of my investment partners. I was wearing my Big Pilot, and he showed up wearing this, so we swapped for a bit. Definitely not something I thought I would like. It was the first Patek I have ever had on my wrist--a really magical experience. The weight of the platinum is nice, makes it feel very substantial for a modestly sized piece.

Any suggestions for dependable, competent, no-nonsense watchmakers in NYC?  I need to service a Seamaster with an ETA movement, so no specialized experience necessary.  Many thanks.

AP RO this Sunday morning. Paired with a Truzzi shirt and bespoke 3-roll-2 tweed jacket with cloth from the P&H Glenroyal bunch.

Fantastic! Beautiful. Would love to see more pics on the rubber strap when you get a chance. My Dualtime says hello! smile.gif

NS, I find the rubber strap thoroughly offensive, and I think in wearing this you have just internet-bitchslapped that big fellow in the bright red dinner suit on the previous page.  You are a monster, and I am delighted for you. :)

I'll vouch for the Kivels and Central Watch.  My family and I have had several watches repaired and restored there, and they've always done a great job.  I also purchased a few watches there at reasonable prices.

Great shot of your dual time. Just found out the RO Dual Time is now out of production. It's my understanding the only 39mm ROs they are going to make are Jumbos and Jumbo variations. So enjoy your now "Vintage RO," its a great watch.

I have been posting way too many unsolicited attire pics recently. So, to make up for it, here is a pic of me with no pants, socks, shoes, shirt or much else - except my Exp I.

I know, posting a shot of my bare giant calf is a little racy. But come on. That ain't as sexy as Victoria's Secret model Iza Goulart sporting a 114270:

Hope you're having a grand weekend!
