    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    i assume you mean the 1907 not the 38.5mm MUT?

    i LOVE this new MUT but the 1907 is not doing it for me either. i like what they were going for, but i dont love the execution 100%.

    Yeah the 1907. I'm not really in the market for a simple dress watch right now, but I like the looks of the new MUT in pink gold.

    Marvin - Nice Ing! Is it the angle of the picture or does that suffer from a the problem the DSSD has in that the bracelet tapers in more than it should?

    Cpark - Another Cartier in the thread! Looks like a Santos variation? Haven't seen a Santos in person yet.

    The crown also seems a bit small on that 1907 model, and +1 on the lugs....maybe just abbreviated too much for the case... and therefore not as elegant as it could be.

    Good effort by JLC, but still just a smidge off, if you axe me. Would like to see it in person, though. Perhaps that's not the best image.




    Welcome, cparkernz. The Santos is under-appreciated. Some great history there.

    yes, obviously an in the flesh investigation is required before final judgement.


    anyone who under-appreciates the first mens wristwatch of all time is a fool.

    Appears to be a Santos Galbee, possibly a smaller size as the date is at 3. I really like the current Santos Galbee XL (its smaller than a Santos 100), as its very versatile in terms of wearing with casual wear or suits (a friend of mine with better than 20 watches, including 2 from independents) says its would be his choice if he could only have one watch to wear with everything. I just wish they would offer a version in a reasonable size with either an in house movement or less common movement from say JLC, Piaget, or F.Piguet etc.

    Love this, would be curious as to how it wears on my wrist.

    Suited up today and back in the AP RO. It has been almost a week, feels great!

    Thanks my man. It took me about 52 hours from the time I first saw the picture, but I'm done barfing now.

    Thanks for the kind words Frills! And I have to agree--that thing is hideous, it had to be some kind of veiled eff you by PP to T&C. I don't see PP putting out an abomination like that on their own.
