    Good call on Rolex -- easy to forget that fact for a company that does $5bb in rev. Interestingly, according to wiki, Patek (~$950mm in 2012) pulls in quite a bit more revenue than AP (~$200mm in 2002). That's a really old figure for AP, but even with huge growth they'd still be behind.

    Yikes -- do you see that often? Also, plz update when you can, curious as to how the owner took the news...


    Agreed on Top Times -- they are really good looking watches. Really clean dials, nice sizing for vintage, and the price on them seems like a bargain.

    Hot darn! Sorry I missed this. I love the subtlety and elegance of this piece. Its slim profile also allows it to slip under the cuff easily, especially given how smooth and silky that crown mechanism and crown guard looks - I mean, check out how it is so elegantly complementing the shirt cuff you're currently wearing!

    When are you shipping this to me! I am so excited!

    it is by far the vast minority, but its not uncommon. 99.9% the customer is well aware. will update when i have new info.

    Also, is it possible for you to take multiple pictures of this piece as it sits on your wrist, so that you can stitchy (heehee) the images together and post an animated GIF?

    Here's an example of an animated GIF that strung together several images of what appears to be an excellent piece, when viewed in still pictures, but may well fall short of your standards in particular, mimo, especially with regards to display backs:

    Cosmonauts are cool.
    Impossible to tell what time is with them though.
    And damned if I can remember how to use the slide rule.

    Always liked that one. Especially the older handwound model. Came close once or twice.

    I've never been a fan of ostrich, but I have to say that strap looked magnificent.
    As for the Big D, it's a beauty that never fades. :)

    +1 Two iconic chronos, but so different in price point and style that they definitely should share a home.

    It's one of several top Rolexes I'd like to own...but definitely up there!

    +1
    I fear that might be beyond me, my friend. But I must say, your aunt is looking wonderfully well, isn't she?



    Edit: GDL, just saw your post...love that GO!

    Love the PML GDL, I really love that older model. There is one for dirt cheap on Timezone right now... resisting the call.

    Ah! The original watch appreciator has dropped by for a visit!

    And just like that, the gdl vanishes again....

    Speaking of watches with coffee photos, I'm not a big Milgauss fan, but I really liked this recent shot from PG. Thought it looked good on the black NATO.

    Some of you probably still follow his (mainly cycling and culinary) adventures:
