    ha, yes, i have the asian skinny wrists thing. truth is though that its more down to overall frame.
    here's my other favourite daily wearer. i had a 14060 sub but flipped it, they are just a bit too ubiquitous for my liking.

    not a great fan of the milgauss, don't like the polished links and the lightning hand just seems gimmicky to me.
    the reverso is stunning, you should definitely do it. although dressy i think it could go with your leathers etc too


    same.

    I am gonna try to keep 4 or 5 watches at a time, something on brown strap, something on black strap, a couple steel banded watches (flieger and a diver's, ie Sub) and then maybe something more fun, or black.

    That's how it start man...


    As nice as IWC's are, I'm probably gonna skip IWC, as I have wrists that are like 5.5" around, literally emaciated looking things, 40mm wears large on me. The only decent looking IWC that I'd be able to wear is the Portofino series and I'm not so hot on them.

    I highly suggest checking out the new Portofino series, they just released a few new pieces for that line. They are really expanding on it and so far I am liking what I see.

    When it comes to flieger, people will suggest going German but I would suggest the IWC Mark XVI. It's a beautiful watch and at 38mm, it should fit with your wrist well. I have the Spitfire and it is a gorgeous watch, I still hope to own a Mark XVI. I was actually planning on getting a used one and getting it PVD'ed black.

    One last suggestion, buy the watches you want as soon as you can as swiss watches are about to increase their prices this year, iirc around April, to match the rise of francs.

    Some of you guys are ridiculous. I shouldn't be surprised though considering some of the clothes you guys have.

    Here's my lowly Lum-Tec B3 on a Jurgen Flieger:

    nineohtoo there's nothing wrong with a lum-tec. I have 3 (custom B2, custom M Phantom, and M26 tungsten). I wear the tungsten m26 as much as I wear anything (although it is the most $$$ lum-tec) because I know it is a tank. Not sure a lot of watchmakers use Tungsten either.

    I've posted pics before and if I have time I'll post some more. I just picked up a Zixen Nitrix II and a white gold Big Pilot as my only watch purchases I'll probably make other than maybe cheap stuff in 2011. Working on my loft I just purchased (posting in a few in the sf homes thread) and my wife being able to see my bank account has nixed most of my fun.

    1968 Rolex Oyster. My dad escaped the Vietnam War, Pol Pot's Cambodia, and the Iranian Revolution (in that order) with this on. He gave it to me for my 30th birthday.


    did he hide that uncomfortable piece of metal in his ass for 2 years? cuz he'd be DAMNED if he was gonna let any slopes put their greasy yella hands on your birthright?
