im behind you at 10 years, but i heartily agree in most cases.
Quote:Thanks DLJr. I would be honored to share my thoughts on possible future purchases when you are ready. Your questions made me think a great deal about my own watch choices and I really enjoyed our exchange of ideas. Best regards, Dino
Quote:I'll be the first in line to volunteer my wrist to save you from the sheer agony of wearing that slightly snug but extremely beautiful Patek. Yes, wrists do swell a bit by the end of the day (as do feet, so sometimes new shoes can feel a bit different if you try them on at the end of the day).
Quote:Thanks Apropos. Also, love that Zenith A386. Vintage can be a great way to go, especially if one is looking for something that not everyone else will be wearing. Although, I'm one of those crazy people that needs to have box and papers (which few seem to have), so that often keeps me from making vintage purchases, and saves me money. You definitely considered some great watches. Thanks for sharing.
Quote:Yes, as they say at Cartier, the time only rose gold Pasha has been "Retired." Its been out of production for a few years. Approximatey 2+ years ago they had a limited run of Pashas with 2 time zones and a day night indicator, available in steel on a strap or bracelet, or available in rose gold on a strap with a chocolate colored dial. Each was really a handsome piece. I have not seen that model in rose in quite some time, but there was a steel one on a strap and on a bracelet at an AD in Vegas when I visited last October. Not sure if they still have either. I imagine they will bring some form of the more mainstream mens Pashas back eventually. Whether it will be available in rose, only Cartier will know that, and only if and when they actually decide to them bring them back. Pashas are currently only available for men from their Fine Watchmaking Collection as a tourbillon and tourbillon chronograph. I tried each of those on this past fall and they were stunning, but each carried prices that would require most mere mortals, myself included, to sell some kidneys, corneas and other vital organs...lucky for me I've never had a burning desire to own a tourbillon.
Wow, I know I've been really busy lately. But damn, it's been one month already?!
Congrats Newcomer!! I bet you're really stoked man.
Thanks, it is. I was just admiring it yesterday while driving in sunny weather. First day I wore it.
The dial just gleams and glistens like the deepest azure sea. It is simply mesmerising, as overused as that word is now.
