    Whats the pilot in the last pic vox? Azimuth?

    Archimede Pilot Original Limited Edition with the NOS Junghans manual movement, number 88 out of 90 produced. The movement is a 1960s variant of the Junghans 87, which was developed in 1956. It was one of the last mechanical movements produced by Junghans

    Yes. RTW Kiton (from a weird, short period where they were making shirts for Oxxford.) If you are looking at the pattern versus the hem of the cuff, it is because the cuff edge is beginning to curve inward into the button and buttonhole. If I laid the cuff out flat, you would see that the curve off the pattern is symmetrical on either side.

    Those Hobbs & Kent links look (even) better on a cuff than they do on display. Did you get them from Barneys?
    I associate white cufflinks with formal occasions like weddings. Also, I dont like square cufflinks. I liked the Knobbs and Bent tortoise pattern cufflinks.
    When I want to tantalize myself with overpriced cufflinks I will probably never be able to afford, I go to www.ultiman.fr . They also sell random vintage knicknacks that are truly awesome.

    I like that despite the Godzilla of a watch.

    Have a dermatologist check out that spot on your hand.

    If I'd posed this I would have shown off the watch, but you get the drift...
