OM: I saw one in person the other day, and the way that beige dial pops the tapisserie, against those browns and that chunky brushed case....yes the strap is OTT...but it's a hell of a thing...you should PM for a price.

 

Yes, I'm still able to enable...and I just ordered two pairs of Vass and a bespoke tie, I mean, life goes on right?

It does indeed. Sorry to hear your news Mimo.

Damn, Mimo - sorry to hear.  I am sure you will find something even better and may the TWAT always be with you.

Pulled out the Turn-o-Graph today.

I haven't been wearing this as much lately.

That needs to change.

The red hands and date make this watch.

I prefer 38/39mm ideally, but 36mm still suits my small wrist well.

I am sorry to hear Mimo! But you know, I have found that things always work out for those who put themselves in the right situations!

I enjoyed your recent VC pics. The Malte looks great... the perpetual calendar looks delicious... and I have to say, I love that Overseas. The Overseas has been growing on me as of late. It looks great on the wrist.

Here's my Temption Cameo in Silver. (Another small German watch brand; I feel like I get pretty good value out of the smaller German companies.)

It's a funky watch to be sure, but those funky details are pretty neat. It's not a small watch (40 x 37, I think), but it is not very wide (circa 10 mm) and is incredibly light on the wrist for its size.

Very sorry for this setback, and best of luck in your next endeavor.

mimo you should buy the watch anyway and make sure the chairman sees you wearing it. My scientific behavioral models show an 89.6% chance that he reconsiders and gives you the job

Sounds like we need to send a TWAT mob to rough up this other lazy guy.  Hopefully the shoes will ease some of the pain.

Indonesian general thinks he's been ripped off.  Speculates that his Richard Mille is fake.  Throws it on floor as proof.

 

Totally a TWAT-worthy story:

The dude obviously went and procured a fake after the fact. smile.gif

Haha that is great. If you are in public service, Richard Mille may not be the brand that you want to invest in.
