    Yes I wouldn't necessarily call that a like for like substitution, but such are the perils of TWAT-addiction!

    So, what do y'all think about the new Piaget Altiplano 900P? I feel like it may be met with mixed reviews around these parts.

    38mm in width, 3.85mm in height.

    Price will be around $25k, so while not inexpensive, I think it is fair for what is inarguably a piece of haute horologie.

    Personally, I am kind of in love with it. I find it fascinating, and an ingenious way of reducing the thickness of a watch without making it too flimsy. From the hands on reviews I have read, everyone has remarked at how sturdy it feels, which is often a criticism of the ultra thin watches.

    Although I feel the white gold will be more popular, I kind of like the rose and grey. I may have to check one of these out in the metal!

    doing well, very nice to see you back. glad you are well, too!

    changing the time in either direction should not damage a watch at all.

    i am a huge franboi of the JLC MUT and MUT Moon. could not rec those strongly enough.


    do not want.

    sorry i have no specific ideas on your ladies watch query, but longines sounds like an excellent idea.

    That Patek is pretty darn cool. I can't believe it comes with a certificate. Those hands are great.

    a beauty. but hard to compare because the JLC is an actual watch and the MB&F HM4 is a toy. :p
