    I like those retrograde that are from the mid 1990s, far more than the Patrimony or Quai De L'ile. I haven't seen one in person in a while, but they were nice watches.

    The RNs do look nice on that one. I'll have to check my reference materials. Off the top of my head for some reason I had been thinking it used a F.Piguet movement as a base, but now that you brought up JLC, you could be right.

    VC retrograde feature looks great!

    Had a lovely time today viewing the installation of the spire on top of One World Trade Center here in downtown NYC. Weather cooperated, skies were a gorgeous blue, and daughter and I loved being outdoors. Had to dress appropriately blue as well, and the 5711/1A's dial fit in quite elegantly, IMHO.

    Beautiful NF! So I've decided for sure that I'm going to get one in July for my birthday (or at least I'm going to begin the purchasing process in July). We don't have a Patek AD in Alabama. Does anyone have suggestions for who to call? I was considering just taking a day trip to Vegas and pitting the three ADs against one another.
