    I know the feeling! For years it was my grail watch. Thankfully, it has exceeded all of my expectations!
    Thanks Stitchy!

    Thanks Tchoy,

    I tried on the 15400 before choosing the 15202 Jumbo. The 15400 is very nice, and the thicker bracelet is good if someone is really tough on their watches. However, I really preferred the proportions and dial of the 15202 (along with the dark blue date wheel). Overall, the Jumbo is one of the best purchases I've ever made!

    I am going to on try the Jumbo when I get a chance. It's very hard to get hold of one at the moment. I have to agreed with you the 15202 is much more balance than the 15402. You have done very well indeed.

    Sorry was meant for Apropos! In my opinion, the NOMOS Tagnate Sport is the perfect example, off the intoxicated head! It's not a sport watch, low w/resistance, pull n push crown! And I believe its about 38mm! (luminous hands+ a little bigger than your traditional dress watch) CLASS IS DISMISSED[​IMG]

    I've used one of the English Selvyt polishing cloths from Frei & Borel for about 15 yrs now. The perfect polishing cloth. I throw it in the wash about once a year/as needed.

    This is the 10"x10", part # FB 313.

    The Selvyt is certainly not necessary. I'm sure any 100% cotton cloth or maybe even the microfiber cloths designed for auto detailing would do the trick. Now that I think about it, Allen Edmonds sells a flannel cotton polishing cloth that would work well.

    Thanks Cylon...glad you liked the photos and that is one of my favorite shirts.

    Thanks for the kind words. I happened to luck out and visit the AP boutique in NYC when they had 1 in stock to try. Since that day, the only other new Jumbo I've seen in person is my own. Even on a recent trip to Las Vegas, I saw lots of supposedly tough to find watches from Patek and other brands...but the one watch I did not see at any of the dealers was a new RO Jumbo.
