Another Excellent Combo Sir!!!
Don't count out the olive!!!
Yikes man, does your tasteful stylishness know no bounds? That 3970 is first-ballot for sure. No one does perpetual calendars (hands down my favorite top shelf complication) like PP, and that is one of their best. With how quickly you went from Nautilus to 3970, I'm sitting over here wondering if you're about to post a pic of a 5204 or something, hah. Great watch.
Is that the midnight and blue twill? How's the twill stack up to the suede in person?
It's OK, the Aquanaut can't hear us here, we can say what we really think...
Speaking of straps, I was on ABP's site last night playing around with some of their navy alligator and I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion on whether or not a strap should be lined (I'd be wearing it mostly in warmer weather). If that's off topic, sorry, and feel free to ignore.
They did for me to get a "D" width. Metal toe taps too.
Interesting. If this is the case, maybe they'll consider making shoes in a smaller size... this would be worth it if they are also eligible for sales!
Definitely considering it.
Thanks, you are very kind. Let's go midway then with the 3940 in platinum, this time paired with Corthay Cocteaus in lie de vin:
Or maybe the 3970 in platinum perhaps, paired with Rider boots in waxy mohawk because it was rainy that day...
A friend and I actually did try the 5204 on a few months ago, but for a variety of reasons (not the least of which was the asking price of $375,000 from the dealer I was speaking to at the time), I passed. This is the 5204 on my friend's wrist. Interestingly, this is also the first 5204P to enter the US market for sale - not exhibition - according to the dealer.
So sorry if off-topic for EG, so here's a pic of my Harrogates taken a few months ago. A few months from now, this picture will once again be season-appropriate.
That's really, really nice.
Yeah, that was basically my reaction. Especially since the actual retail price is $317,500. I mean, the actual retail price is still spit-worthy but that mark-up to $375,000 was even more so.
The twill has a slightly rougher texture but more formal looking than suede. That is just my opinion. I will try and get some close up pictures to give you a better idea.
We can do an MTO if you have something in mind.
I would take issue with the first sentence with respect to formality.
It is just my opinion because the twill is a more unique material I view it as being slightly more formal.
Separate names with a comma.
