    Congratulations on the win! The case size is 35mm? Do you know the height of the piece? Chrono movements tend to be thicker, skewing the case size / height ratio for others but there are some very, very elegantly laid out dial designs for triple date chronographs out there in the 35/36mm case size range. This one appeals to me.

    Congrats again!

    A bit late here but congrats, Newcomer!

    Speaking of straps and sweating it is rapidly warming up in my neck of the woods in NYC so I will see how long the leather straps last or if the steel bracelets end up getting more wrist time.

    Art is art, any and all mediums; I like your stab at spin! You would make a OK politician! But I wasn't born yesterday,so spin only works on the ill-informed[​IMG]Also, only a affluent collector would buy this F.egg of yours, not for the time keeping, but mere show and knowing its exclusivity (bragging rights)!

    You still read The Robb Report, don't you? Last time I opened an issue, they were selling bed frames made from antlers.

    That GMT is a stunner, isn't it? Speaking of Brown Watches:

    Movado has finally come out with a Museum Watch that can actually be read.

    Fresh out of QC.. Rolex Datejust. The dial is olive green and the diamond hour markers were apparently added on by a jeweler aftermarket.

    Gotta love those nipples, Singular!

    My weathered old 5513 today. All week, now that I think of it. The creamy tritium is just the loveliest :satisfied:

    Baume doesn't seem to get much love around here, but I like it.
