My old Longines has a fixed bar I do not know if this model is the same.
What's a fixed bar?
You can admit it, mimo. Your list should also include a GMT-Master on a Jubilee bracelet. Just like AHNOLD in this surely-SF-and-especially-mimo-approved stylin' pic:
That impeccably tight, "skinny" fit! Those collars! That hair! I mean, it must be a trick of the light or something but you could even glimpse a pocket square peeking out there. Come on. Style maven fo sho!
Not trying to be Arnold, but in my opinion it's certainly a great watch.
Especially on the Super Jubilee.
Root beer. Nipple dial. Jubilee or brown leather. Live happily ever after!
I LUV the nipple dial!!!
esp on kate upton?
You know there is no rational way to disagree with that statement, Cylon.
I admit a GMT could also be an option. Although I don't like the Jubilee bracelet very much. But then we get into GMT options - vintage "Pepsi", "Coke", new black'n'blue? I really don't know. Anyway, academic for now, but maybe if someone accepts the consultancy proposal I'm currently writing - I will then consult with you!
**ignoring Cylon deliberately**
The great thing with the older version is that you have so many more options. I also have the oyster bracelet and could easily get the black and the red/black insert if I wanted.
Love that watch! Very elegant and beautifully made.
Piaget is one of those brands that I always tell people is under appreciated, and I'd put it up against any of the "Big 3" in terms of quality. I might say, AL&S has a slight an edge on them when it comes to finish, but I have seriously given a lot of thought to their Altiplano as my first round dress watch at some point.
Glad to hear you are just kidding. If you were to remove the movement from the T3, you might be able to put the entire 5711 watch case inside the T3...just kidding. The T3 is ridiculous looking and its size is totally unwearable...15.65mm thick x 61mm total length x 57.2mm wide...unless you plan to wear it Flava Flav style around your neck.
[FONT=arial, sans-serif]The most iconic of Ahh-Nold's watches is the AP "End of Days" RO. He wore it in the movie of the same name and those sell for many times their original price and collectors love them. I've never been a fan of it. [/FONT]
+1. I don't mind the branding on it. I think its quite reasonable considering there is so much to look at and skeleton watches can look so busy that its easy to lose the branding. I've seen it don't more discreetly by VC and AP skeletons, but to be honest, I actually like the way Piaget did it on this piece.
Start with a 16610 Sub (D-Series or later). You will never regret that.
Frankly I cannot decide between a 5513, 1675 or a 1680
OmegaMale, can you explain to me why you say "D-Series or later" or perhaps point me toward an article?
is it about the bracelet?
My first and only vintage so far was pretty easy for me.
I went with a Red 1680.
