To double00’s broader, albeit unintended point - Cho has some seriously ugly **** up in that collection…I mean, among any 66-watch collection there will be hits and misses, but damn - maybe I’m the only one seeing a bunch of misses?

@double00 I just got off an emergency group chat with Xenakis, Beckett, Mies van der Rohe, and Buckminster Fuller. They all agree you should buy the Chanel watch. They say it “suits you”….

I looked at the catalogue last night, nothing of any real interest to me - and only 64 are catalogued, perhaps he err’d

Edit: rather I err’d, forgot the 3 Seikos grouped together

No you're not the only one. Lots of **** in that collection I wouldn't bid on. All the dress watches on that are just too small for me. Only thing I really like are the Speedmasters (obviously being an Omega fanboy), the Cartier Tank Asymetrique, Rolex Sub, and the Laine.

Don't forget that if you win a bid, you'll get a free Armoury by Ascot Chang jacket of your choice.

Teba or safari! you get a ******* teba or safari jacket! You can’t make this **** up!
Ngl, the safari 2 is actually pretty nice. I have 2 in linen. I also have a few other jackets from the Armoury; a couple of 3PB's and a road jacket.

The Chanel is a cool piece. I’d happily wear it. I would choose the VC&A dual time over it though.

Bruh…no hate, but no safari jackets for moi…in fact, the armoury only has one meaningful product in my opinion: the model 3. That’s their [main] thing.

Don't like the leather band, this thing is pretty stiff. Probably will look towards those Delugs or something.

Good choice! How about a bespoke unlined black or dark brown calf with very precise same-tone saddle stitching?
