    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    LOL its a real classic. The 5124 incorporates Patek's new rectangular movement, which was introduced about two years ago in response to critism that Patek was putting its round 215 movement into rectangular cases.

    Its a great companion piece to my other Patek, the 5111 Gondolo, which has been discontinued. The 5111 has a very nice art deco design and a very complicated case structure but alas, it contains the round 215 movement with no see through back.

    Gaz


    Thanks for the info. How thick is the 5124? - Patek's website only provides the thickness of the caliber.

    Its about 11mm thick. The case is curved so its a very comfortable watch to wear. Having said that the K2 and RG have been getting the most wrist time at the moment.

    K3 has a skeletonised dial with an awesome moonphase design. [​IMG] While I think this is awesome, I went with the K2 because I just love the cleaner look of the K2 dial and didn't want to clutter it with the moonphase. I also didn't see the point of having a moonphase without the date function. Gaz
    This forum is no good to me [​IMG] Can you have the MOONface MTO?

    Depends on what you had in mind. Stepan is pretty flexible and will try to accomodate requests. Having said that, he offers a range of customisation that he is willing to perform. I did ask him whether he could do the moonphase in rose gold rather than white gold. He said "no". Perhaps I could have been more persuasive.

    Cheers

    And Guido, I think your panerais are growing on me even though I used to hate them about as much as Matt. I don't know if it's the way you take pictures or what, but you should compete against the Sartorialist.
    - Wow, thank you..

    Agreed, those are some great photos. I'm loving the car too (what is it? I don't recognize it Sorry, I'm kind of a car guy.)
    - featured in my daily WAYW thread Motor - Gloss black 159 SportWagon - "nothing standard", I could start a whole thread on the mechanical modifications to make this sound & corner like the Alfa's of old..(Alfa Romeo)

    1 week, PAM & I are still on honeymoon.. Though Panda is needing some love, maybe next week.

    I was bored, and went on a little ebay buying spree for cheap and unusual watches. (Pics from ebay.) HMT Indian army, issued watch, restored dial (this one's arrived, and the luminescence is strong enough to make me worry about radiation): [​IMG] [​IMG] And another variant: [​IMG] [​IMG] Soviet Russian Raketa, for weak-sighted, NOS export version, reminds me of Panerai (sorry, all resident Paneristi[​IMG] : [​IMG] [​IMG] I got this not very useful wrist compass as a bonus along with the Raketa: [​IMG] Fifties Oris: [​IMG] [​IMG] Ca. 1940 Record, probably a private-purchase military-type watch: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Another two exotics; they seem to be Indian or Pakistani NOS: [​IMG] [​IMG] I like the arabic day/date, and the unusual cyclops on this one: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I really like this watch. How big is it (I'm guessing around 33mm)?

    Spot on - it's 34 mm across, 38 lug-to-lug. There are several on ebay now, some used, some NOS. They seem to go for betwen $30 and 60.

    What do you thing? I like the irony of wearing a PAM233 on a "tool" strap such as this ZULU & then pairing with a suite & tie! [​IMG]
    The earlier comparison of your photos to sartorialist sums it up nicely, your pictures bring out the best in some of those items. Thanks to you a B&R watch is on my shopping list and those Panerai shots might make another serious dent in my paycheck [​IMG].

    Just got my Navitimer back from the shop and that piece of me that was missing seems to have come back with the watch. [​IMG]

    I had meant to ask...

    I'll be looking at purchasing another watch somewhat shortly and have narrowed down my desires to either the Omega Seamaster or the Montblanc Timewalker.

    Any suggestions?

    IMO Mont Blanc pens.. Sure their watches are nice.. But they make pens & not that good to come to think of it..

    Of the ones you listed, Omega Planet Ocean.
