    Patek Dual Time -

    Old pic, I never wear it - too much bling for me. I inherited it though, so I haven't gotten up the gumption to sell it. For now, it sits in a safety deposit box . . . .

    Nice! A nice brown leather strap would fix the bling problem a bit, although I like that bracelet.

    I agree with the brown strap.

    Why hide it at the bank?

    Im not crazy about the case. Even with a leather band it would be too ornamental for my taste.

    If I ever get my gun safe installed, I'll put it in there . . . .

    I don't mind the bracelet, but I don't like it with that bezel. On a plainer case/bezel combination I think it could look good.

    I would put an Alligator strap on that watch and wear it, its a Patek Phillipe for gods sake!

    I would contact someone at a Hamilton Jewelers and see if the bezel could be changed.

    Thats only what I would do, but i'd be proud to inherit such a watch!

    I don't mind the aforementioned "bling factor" but I'm not the biggest fan of that bracelet. I like this Patek's bracelet better [​IMG]

    Yes, I do too. On a different watch it could look very good.

    I'll have to go check it out. That's less than 5 minutes away from me. What's his name?
