    Some Valjoux 72 watchporn.. Supposed to be NOS but I think this one may have been serviced at least once before I got to work on it.

    Anyone going to be at the IWJG shows in Brooklyn this Monday or Tuesday? I will be swinging by.

    Why do I expose myself to temptation?

    I wasn't planning on it, but I do need to stop in Ercoles and I'd love to watch you spend a very large sum of money on a watch. The question is can I take an extra day off this week and do I feel like making the drive.

    I take it that's a rhetorical question?!


    My dear Stitchy, how thoughtful of you. But I'm sorry to say I don't like it. At least, I don't love it. A friend of mine has just this watch, and frankly I think it looks effeminate on him. When I said I wanted a Rolex with a deep blue dial, I mean more like this:

    [​IMG]

    See, there's blue and there's blue. Like this. Which I suppose is aiming a bit high next to the Day-Date. But I even like this. Or, at the risk of losing and and all credibility, this.

    And if you're still reading, then I'm thinking an extravagant Gollum-version of you would be unable to resist this. So have it from me!

    I don't generally like pale blue dials, but I must say that (platinum? white gold?) Rolex definitely does it for me.

    One of my fave blue-dial watches of all time (and easily one of my best photos):

    Datejusts with Roman numerals look extremely crowded to me. Not a fan. Good trade Stitchy.
