    Re: product placement, iirc JLC is Tony Stark's watch of choice, at least in the first movie. They even got the name in the script

    Those Seiko orange monsters really catch the eye. I like the bezel. My device doesn't want to upload dog pics for some reason....

    The more I read this thread, the more meaningless my definition of "need" becomes...

    Using "need for want" was what built SF.

    Pics didn't quite capture the extent of scratching, but yeah, I believe ya with your wife's Tank. I admit I get a bit nervous when my wife puts on the 5040 (her favorite) or the 3970, but somehow she takes better care of those versus the ones on steel bracelets.

    Hah hah, thanks Newcomer. How are the review sessions coming along (or have I been gone for so long that you're already done!)?

    My wife has incredibly strong willpower. She is actually well versed in fine timepieces and jewelry (pearls, diamonds, etc) - but she would never spend for herself (although she enjoys looking and learning quite a bit). I have become her enabler on the timepiece side.

    I love these watches of yours, and I love how you take great pictures of them. Kudos to you and Stitchy for continuing to fuel TWAT with these awesome shots.

    As for me today, a not-so-awesome shot of summer wear with my trusty 3970 in yellow gold. Off-white linen pants, purple striped socks from Phineas Cole, olive wingtips from Corthay. Who's afraid of wearing green and purple? Not the Incredible Hulk. And certainly not me.

    Nope, he's much larger than those breeds. He is about 145 lbs, and maybe closer in size to a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. See below for the answer.
    Jabba's a handsome pup. They gray whiskers suggest he is a senior citizen in the dog world? Nope, Thor isn't a Leonberger, although that is another good guess. I like Leonbergers. Really beautiful dogs, although I've only ever seen one in person once. Thor is an Ovcharka. They are from Eastern Europe and love cold weather and snow.
    You may want to check on that. I was fairly certain that he had a Bvlgari...although maybe I'm remembering a different Iron Man movie.
    I do that all the time!!! It must be a SF thing...or maybe the result of my eating too many Hamentashen over the years!

    Hey Frills,

    On the few occasions where the Mrs. did wear one of my watches, my old Explorer 114270 and a Daytona, she was much more careful with the watches than she normally is. Although, I was still a bit nervous. Her Cartier TF takes a real beating as her daily wearer. Her dressier watch is a steel and rose gold Datejust, that she rarely wears. She has talked about getting a real dress watch, JLC Reverso or Piaget. She is very well versed in watches and jewelry (she might even be a bigger movement snob than me. She won't consider a quartz watch. I even have to remind her I own a quartz watch, a ref 17000 Rolex OYSTERQUARTZ). I think when push come to shove, generally she would rather have jewelry than another watch.

    IIRC Newcomer should still be studying. The Bar exams are (or at least used to be) around the last week in July. Keep studying Newcomer!

    Hulk Like green and purple together. Hulk also a fan of Phineas Cole socks and neckties.
