    That watch would go really well with my Justin Bieber jumpsuit , it helps counterbalance the monkey I have on the other shoulder but the watch jewels just don't quite match the ones on my iphone cover.

    P.S. I wouldn't wear something like that, for the record.

    You mean you would wear it. I know you would. So would Frilly, but only at private parties. :)

    Here's a cute idea for a piece for the wife. The discontinued 5800/1A, "midsized" at around 38mm (including the ears) X 34mm (case/diagonal). Pictured right beside the 5711/1A "jumbo" Nautilus currently in production (pic c/o the internet/PuristSPro).

    Her wrist is about as large as mine (6") and I think it would look fabulous on her. She wears a midsized Aquanaut (the 5066/1A) right now and she loves it. Pic of her wearing the 5066/1A below while pushing our daughter around on a stroller.

    Not for a few more years, though! But just planning early... Got to save up!

    Stopped by Tourneau because it was on the way and I wanted to try on a few JLC Reversos. The sales reps have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. One guy called the JLC 1931 a "JLC 1950s." I know Tourneau is universally derided in this thread so I guess this shouldnt come as a surprise but where should I go to actually get good service in NYC?

    I've had far better, more knowledgeable service at Wempe - very close to Tourneau in NYC. Wempe is on 55th street and 5th avenue.
