The Watch Appreciation Thread - Part two (Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Jaeger LeCoultre, Baume & Mercier and more) - Page 208

A little watch nerd PSA -- Had a chance to meet the director of the Omega Museum, Petros Protopapas this week.  He's visiting the states, touring several boutiques.  Fascinating guy who is a walking encyclopedia of all things Omega and watches in general.  They're very excited to be opening an entirely new museum space across the street from the current location next year.  If you're ever going to be anywhere near Biel, or can see him while in the states, I'd recommend trying to get together with Petros.

All that talk of timeless Rolexes and understated Nomos Bauhaus...I totally buy into both. Like I buy into ancient madder neats, hand made shoes and Drake's pocket squares.

But I also drive a red Camaro SS and eat doner kebabs. We are all complex beings.

So, 45mm Miyota-powered four hundred bucks of total wrongness for the weekend.



White linens and a polo, oh-so-effortless Prince Albert loafers, and a wristfull of bronze steam-punk crazy. Yay Friday!

A friend of mine is looking at a heavily-discounted Daniel Roth.  I know it's owned by Bulgari now and nothing to do with the original maker. It seems they're all being cleared away, along with Gerald Genta, to be replaced with a unified Bulgari brand.  But does anyone know who actually made the most recent Daniel Roth branded models?

I got bored Saturday afternoon with watching Michigan State get blown out. I was stuck at home while the 6-month-old was taking a nap so I decided to take a family photo of my MKII watches.



My wife came home and saw them laid out on the kitchen counter and asked why I have 6 of the same watches. How could she not see that they were each obviously quite different?!? lol8[1].gif

And a solo shot of the Hawkinge that was on my wrist at the time and inspired me to take the shot of all of them:

Just checked, and my Grand Seiko is running 1.5s fast over 2 weeks. Not bad. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
