I agree. I like both personally. First one is more geometric/bauhaus, second one is a bit more stealthy.

Whether it is Bauhaus or not, I like the austerity of the lugs in the Extra-Plate patrimony. It is the way that they are not integrated into the case that I like. iammatt: Did they have the Extra Plate in white gold when you bought the Contemporaine? In which color did you get yours?

No. It was in rose.

That's what I am afraid of (or hopeful of). Perhaps I missed my chance.

The odds of you mofos liking the next two are low, but I am forever on the lookout for a pristine example of each:

This Concord:



This Hamilton:



18k versions of either are impossible to find.

Other candidates, the PP 5196 in gold of one color or another.

Dopey's on the right track with his choice of the VC Patrimony, but I prefer the Patrimony Contemporaine, or especially the Traditionelle Self-Winding (more of a daytime watch, but really nicely proportioned).

Full disclosure: I don't know much about watches, but I do know what I like.

Serious question from a non-watch guy. What is the second 'mini-dial' seen on many of these? for instance: Attachment 15138
post #39 of 131
That's the seconds hand/dial

There you go again...

Of the watches posted so far, I am liking mafoo's picks the best.

But you haven't seen mine yet ...

My Rolex feels inadequate.

Mafoo's IWC and the Vox's JLC are the coolest so far. But I'm just along for the ride since I know nothing about watches.
