    Love the father / son pic, Mimo - and I'm glad you're enjoying the orange monster. It's a watch I've nearly bought a few times over the years, and one day almost certainly will.

    This Breitling today

    I have had this watch for a long time and it has kind of grown on me. I always liked the navitimer style but my inner watch snob got in the way: Pedestrian 7750 movement/dial layout and generally Breitlings are not my thing. This one i think has a nice vintage vibe.

    That one rather screams Breitling, but in a good way, IMO. I rather like the look of old style Navitimers and Montbrilliants.

    @Find Finn, I'm afraid I didn't, but I did catch an earlier program where he was interviewed about his watch collection and I've briefly talked watches with him when I met him some time ago.

    edit: I just got an e-mail from Bindesbøl, that KH will be signing his 3rd book on watches in the shop on november 9th.

    Very nice; did she research/pick that all by herself or did she have some guidance from you?

    Oh, just about 8 years of hinting, and some gentle prodding from some regulars on this thread :)

    I saw that as well (more than once) :ember:

    I don't own any of his books, so maybe I should have a look at no. 3.

    You and me both, DLJr. Unsure yet if I can make it but if I am able to swing a visit, I will be there at noon on Sunday.
    Congratulations in advance! Time flies, huh. I was married more than thirteen years ago and somehow, she has yet to divorce me.

    Love how the seasons are changing, although it is freezing today in NYC.


    So much pressure! Heh heh.


    That is simply amazing - and a gift from your wife no less. AWE. SOME.

    I'm going to be at the trunk show most of the day Saturday, and will be stopping by Sunday just to say hi to Stitch. I was initially planning on just making a day trip, but it turned into a little weekend getaway pretty quickly. The fact that Frank (Ercole's) will be there and my wife was due for a fitting for her coat sealed the deal. So I'll be around in NYC all weekend, actually browsing hotels right now.
