Gents, this guy is helping me count down the hours until I go close on my first home! Looking forward to being able to save up for a new watch now that I have this big expenditure under my belt!

@culverwood gets extra points for identifying the watch and the vendor.

 

It was indeed. Picked it up today.

 

I was in the market for a Pepsi GMT-II and also had my eye on a CPCP Tortue, but then this guy pops up. Although I've already got a steel Reverso GT I've always wanted a rose gold one with some complications, so I just couldn't resist. I'll keep the steel one too as it was my first proper watch and I'm very attached to it. It also wears very differently.

 

Will post some better pics when I get the chance - it's an absolutely stunning watch.

Thanks Dino. Here's another quick shot - I will post something better and report back on first impressions over the weekend.

I remember that although it is a similar size in plan to the GRUT it is quite a bit thicker. How does it wear?
post #2857 of 4022
It's thicker for sure but it wears well - doesn't feel too chunky. The picture above exacerbates it a bit.

Thanks Dino, it really is the most exquisite thing.

Timeless has done another limited edition Nomos.  Have to say that while I like Nomos I tend to prefer my funds going elsewhere when it's all said and done.  However had they done this in 36mm I'd probably be in on the yellow one if not both.  I like the Timeless Nomos watches they've done thus far, but they're all 38mm range which just kills it for me.

La Tradition was on this week. While adding the photo, saw the RD that I sold some time back. Big regret! Went to a good buddy at least.. Still don't know why I did it. Sold it at a loss, did not necessarily needed the funds. I think I was going through my typical I have too many watches to manage cycle.. It comes once every few years..

That Monegasque is still sitting in my AD, taunting me.  I don't think it will ever be the one to push me to spend that money, but doesn't stop me wanting it, and visiting occasionally!

That is one of the few RDs that does something for me.  Keeping my fingers crossed that someday one will be on your wrist!
