Thanks, that seems to be it. Explains the two buttons.
if not for the 2 hands i may have thought it was an old constellation. the memovox is great, you gonna get one?
Yep, same watch that's at the forefront of the group shot I posted yesterday.
Other pics of the watch, from yesterday as well:
If I'm getting a Radiomir, I want my wire lugs.
+1 to the wire lugs. Not sure if I'm crazy about this new design.
I've never been the biggest fan of Panerai, but that's just me.
I think its beautiful.
Hey Frills, +1 on Vibram lug soles. I have do the same thing with my dress shoes, taps on the out sides of the heals.
Clean up sucked. We were without power for roughly 2 days. Don't need a shovel around here...we need a snow blower. Even with a large snowblower for the driveway and it took 3+ hours to clear it. It was brutal. I earned the strudel and cookies this weekend.
I wasn't initially sure about its wearability. However, red is versatile and its something you rarely see on fine watches. We see silver, white, black and occasionally blue. I think the Rouge is a great watch. I haven't seen it in person, however a friend that was at SIHH thought it was one of the best JLCs he has seen in years.
Ah, the 5015...definitely a stunning piece. Also interesting because it had a porcelain dial. My Dad had one in yg back around1995/96. Back in the days of huge discounts...MSRP was $19,995 and brand new from the AD it was out the door for $13,000. Today they sell for about$20-22K in yellow, rose, or wg. I haven't seen a PT one on the market in a while. This model had a short run and was replaced by the 5054, which had a much longer production span. Great watch.
Didn't know he had a Patek. For many years he was a big Vacheron customer.
I like it more than the Offshore Chronographs. The finish is exceptional. In my shopping for a steel sports watch, the only watch that had the same quality of finish as a Royal Oak was the Patek Nautilus. The RO and RO Offshore really have many intricate angles that are only noticed if you closely inspect it Even the facets of the bezel. Its not just 8 sides that are chopped off, they are angled and polished, and even then they are faceted again straight down to meet the case. Its far more intricate than most photos suggest. The down side to the Offshore models, as Johan mentioned, is that due to their height, the bezels can take a beating and get dinged or scratched in doorways unless you are very careful. However, there are carbon and ceramic editions that might reduced that type of issue (although if struck hard enough ceramic can crack). I like the Offshore Diver but I would prefer it on a bracelet to a rubber strap but thats just me. Good luck and let us know what you decide.
Not anytime soon, but who knows?
How big is your version? Also, how do the two buttons (?) work?
edit: wait, it's not that complicated, is it? Two crowns, a normal one and one to set the alarm time? Which leaves the question how the alarm is canceled.
Figured its switch things up a bit:
Marathon Govt. issue GSAR
Great workhorse watch; had the crystal and bezel replaced after last deployment.
as i recall, the bold is correct. not sure how the alarm is cancelled though. i would imagine a pull/twist/push of the alarm crown or something.
You can't cancel it; you just let the alarm wind down. Then it makes a sort of irritating rattle sound when you move your arm for a while.
Or you can reset the alarm time.
