sysdoc - the 5050 is my dream watch. IMO though I like the 5059 very much, it is too thick for a true "dress" watch for my tastes because of the officer case. I think that's a shame, becasue I'm really looking for a dress watch but also need a second hand in a watch - I like to see that movement - and the 5059/5159 is the only perptual in today's lineup with that second hand. Of course, the 5039 is beautiful, but neither the 5039 nor the 3940 has a second hand. They are thin and would be great dress watches, but they are just lacking that seconds hand. So for me, the 5050 was really perfect - perpetual, second hand, and thin. I wish they would make the 5050 style again, but for now they seem to be sticking with the officer case. I may just have to forget the seconds hand at get the 5039, because 5050 prices are going through the roof.
