    Yep. That's on a solid gold perpetual calendar, don't you know.

    Whereas there are simple time/date steel watches in similar-sized cases, that have rotors like this:

    That is a great picture Mimo.

    Also, harking back to the Patek talk a while back--saw this on TPP this morning. Patek needs something like this (on the left) in their collection. Handwound, of course.

    Awesome watches as always, gentlemen. I have really started warming up to the black dial Daytona. For a very long time I could only appreciate the white dial, but now the black dial makes a more compelling argument. It's funny how one's tastes change over the years.


    Can do, I just took a few DSLR Reverso pics but this cell phone wrist shot is my favorite of the day:

    He is a rescue. He and his brother were found starving in a dumpster at this time last year, and we're doing our best to show him the other side of life.

    Sun Moon tonight, have a great weekend guys!

    Oh I wasn't considering the Montblanc. I just wanted to get a discussion going about it. It's practically an entry-level complication and even though they give a lot for the price and discount you can get for it later on, there are way more other watches ahead of it in my wish list.

    RFX - any reason you passed on the new Oyster during your recent acquisition spree? Seems like it's right up your alley.

    [​IMG]Great photo and great watch! I love my Daytonas. I don't think anyone was aggravated by your asking about Montblanc watches. I think possibly you are mistaking some very blunt, honest opinions for being aggravated. While a Montblanc isn't a watch I'd advise someone to spend their hard earned $$$ on, if someone really likes it and wants it, he should go for it. In the end its not my $$$ , so if after considering other options its still someone's dream watch, he should get it.

    Since you mentioned wrist shots, here is a quick wrist shot of the lum on my Daytona. Sorry, not a great photo due to low light situation.

    I like the Daytona (particularly the gold variants), but never quite "got" it. Based on my limited experience/wrist time with the stainless models, I found it to be somewhat unsubstantial. And I'm a fan of smaller watches. I dunno.
