    How much did you pay? Can they be had for less than 80£? Beautiful piece of metalwork, by the way!

    Hey troll.

    Where is that pre-edit post of yours where you insinuated that my timepiece is a replica?

    Get the f*ck out of TWAT. Blocked.

    I don't understand it either, but my guess is that no one wants to leave their watch in the locker where it can be stolen.

    Seems a couple of threads I visit have been invaded by trolls. Like trolls so bored they argue with their other troll account. . .

    Indeed. Gives a whole new meaning to "playing with yourself."

    I wish I had been in the Cars We Drive thread before I bothered answering the Rolex/Panerai thing. I do enjoy their handles though.

    TC....from what I had heard in Texas particularly the oil people, back in the 80's used to refer to a Day-Date as a "Texas Timex" and a gold and steel Rolex was called, "Half-a-Rolex." I have no actual experiences visiting Texas, but I'm sure none of us are surprised that no matter where we are the nice watches seen most frequently are Rolex watches. After all they do make a million or so watches every year.

    I unless I visit Boston or another large city, NYC, Vegas, Chicago...I never see APs in the wild. Only one of my local watch collecting friends was familiar with APs. I don't think I'd wear my RO to the gym...yikes!!! All it takes is the one odd machine you walk past a bit too closely and BANG...instant ding or scrape! And if you do something like racquetball and someone whacks your watch with a racquet...[​IMG]
    Ah...didn't know he was a troll. Accusing my man of wearin a replica? I've seen that 5040...and to paraphrase something from a TV show..."Its real and its spectacular!"

    Interesting comments re the Pan spread and recognition. In my town I've only seen one, mine. When I go to the Smoke I see a couple but not during the day for obvious reasons. Rolex on the other hand are on every street corner, nothing wrong in that, just saying.

    I had mine on today for the Friday Blue Challenge. My wife has one too and a Tank Cartier, I'll post some pics some time.

    Wow, some great stuff lately! I love the watch RogerP and DLJr. The red dial really pops, and it looks incredibly well made. Red is a very underused color. I love the Reverso rouge and this red, so unique.

    Frills, TC, your watches are both beautiful. Frills, that is easily the nicest fake I have ever seen :roflmao:

    Mimo, I thought I would share my get-up with you today. No socks, loafers, and jeans. Doesn't get better on a 60 degrees and sunny Friday!
