Thanks. They're RTW. Some observations x-posted from the shirt thread:
Vincenzo di Ruggiero is new to me (company is only about a year old?). Compared to my other eyetalian shirts (Boglioli, Sartorio Napoli, Salvatore Piccolo, Borrelli, Barba, Finamore) they have as much as or more handwork and the softest fabric. And not in the delicate, high threadcount wrinkleprone way. More like the softness of a flannel pajamas - perfect for more casual applications.
Sorry man, was a great girl but she flew out this morning.
As a consolation, Here is a pic of the new wristband tho....I still breathe a little heavy thinking of the price, but store wooed me with 12 months no interest program. This is the only watch I've ever liked better than the omega!!
