    I'll take a Portofino over a Panerai any day. I swear I see more Panarai's in NYC than Rolex.

    Got a new Patek in rose gold a while ago.

    Very nice watch, a quiet elegance to it.

    This is my piece (well, an image of one the same as mine, as I don't have a camera handy).

    I love this watch for its simplicity. It was made to commemorate the Battle of Britain and was limited to 1000 pcs.

    This design specifically recalls the 1936 - 1944 Mark IX and was particularly meaningful to me as my Grandfather flew spitfires during the war.

    that, specific, portofino is the ugliest shit i've ever seen.

    Even though I absolutely dislike any bicolor stuff, I have to say that this specific one looks significantly nicer in real life.

    Yea, not much by the thread's standards, but it's nice, plus the seller just serviced it. Not a bad deal for $22.


    I mean this one. I like it.

    That Spitfire is da bomb! IWC should've reproduced this instead of that new Vintage Pilot they're hawking now.

    - I like the strap it is on

    Really nice! 127?

    Here is mine. Sorry for the bad pictures, It´s my third post.

    Ulysse nardin, Tag heuer
    ]

    - 233J very different beast all together
    - the 127 is the Fiddy & the 233 has a few extra complications such as manual wind with 8 day reserve, 12 hr GMT hand, hacking system.
