    Amazing pics of a beautiful, classic watch, Stitchy. Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to seeing new ones (you said something about a PAM I think??)

    Quote: Great photos of your JLC. The cufflink idea is very cool! Although, I'm guessing it would be tough to find an match, and having one made would probably be costly. It might be easier (and possibly more affordable...or not) to get a set of pre-owned animal or insect cufflinks from Hidalgo, Cartier, Tiffany, or David Webb. Again thanks for sharing some cool photos with us.

    Hentschel Hamburg Ambassador just came today-- less than 7 weeks' wait. I am most pleased. It feels very luxurious on the wrist but is just on the casual side, as well as being utterly unrecognizable to the man on the street. For some reason, the fact that it's made of bronze and not gold is very appealing to me.

    I didn't know how to post before the software changed, and now that the search mechanisms are impossible to figure out, I'm even more confused than usual.

    The one I ordered is exactly like the one on their website, however, except that they couldn't export an alligator band without a license. Which is strange, since it would just have been coming home.

    Glad to see that things worked out and you got your money back.
    Sounds like an interesting watch. I think the only watch I've seen with a bronze case was the Gerald Genta Gefica. Congrats and enjoy it.

    Anonimo has made some bronze cases over the years.

    Yes, I forgot about them. Although a friend had one and had lots of problems with it and sold it on Craigslist. Funny thing is I visited the AD where he bought it and they told me they dropped the line because they said they got lots of returns due to quality control issues.

    Yeah, for a company that basically only makes cases, they've been known for a lot of QC issues...

    Bronze does discolour very easily. But that is a stunning watch!

    Stitch - your pics are great, but I want more and closer, especially making use of that display back for macro movement porn! As for your fly cufflink, how about instead of trying to match it, you get a spider for the other one. Who said cufflinks have to match? I think that would be cool and somehow...you. [​IMG]
