    Dinner last night:

    [​IMG]

    Notice how the day has begun to change from THU to FRI at a few minutes past 11pm. By the time it hits 12MN it will be fully "FRI" and the pointer in the date wheel will mark "21" correctly.

    Lunch an hour ago:

    Some friends know how to appreciate watches. Quite like them. Like my TWAT brothers here.

    Haven't lost pusher caps yet...

    Thanks. I love Elsa - the whole movie, in fact. Resonates with me as the dad of two girls.

    The watch is OK too.

    Oh frick! He might "hold a referendum" and ask your watch if it would like to secede from your wrist! You can anticipate the results of that vote........

    Yes, and that's why I have dined with you, Newcomer, and DLJr from TWAT! [​IMG]

    You are too kind Mr. Frills.

    Any TWATers going to be at the NMWA trunk show tomorrow? I was thinking of doing some tire kicking while in town.

    That watch is absolutely chock full o' OK.

    This house is also a huge fan of the movie, myself included. I've been a fan of Idina Menzel since Wicked, but Adele Dazeem is only one part of what makes that movie so special, and such a surprising antithesis to the tired/also-ran Disney "Princess" formula. Great stuff - I cannot wait to be unable to secure tickets to the Broadway adaptation.

    edit -

    Before anyone gets cantankerous, I'll bring things back on track with more 112.

    @CMT1

    Beautiful 112 and straps. How often do you wear it? I'm trying to get a sense of whether it's a good day-to-day watch, or one you should only wear a couple of times a week.

    And an artists interpretation of what it could look like when announced next week at Basel.

    Thoughts? Ideas on pricing? I will absolutely pick one up if it's 42mm or less, and not super thick. Looks beautiful!

    ^^ There is also a lume shot on Instagram. It has lumed bezel numbers. It might be tough for me to stay away from this one.

    Thanks clpotter. I wore it daily and almost exclusively for the first two years I owned it. I was in love with the brand, loved the simplicity of the dial, and couldn't get enough of the novelty of its oversized 44mm case. Back then its larger size went from being outlandishly large to "just right" quite quickly, and temporarily spoiled me on watches of smaller diameter and lesser substance. I dressed it up, I dressed it down, I took it on vacation, you name the event and I wore the watch. The ability to quickly change the strap has a lot to do with this - It is very versatile, and (again) its simplicity fits any outfit.

    It's a cool piece, but it helps that I got in when the 112 could be had for under $3000 new with a discount. I do wish I'd bought when the truly collectible pieces were on sale, but in the end it matters little to me because I do not flip my watches.

    Were I looking at today's retail ...There'd be no AD in the equation, as I'd beeline straight to the preowned/NIB market.

    Nice. Yeah, I was just curious. If I'm going to spend that much on a watch, I want it to be versatile. And to your point about the current retail price, once I pull the trigger, I'm definitely going the pre-owned route. If you don't mind me asking, when did you buy it?
