Ugh Stitchy, this is just unfair. Can we at least get something of a hint?
Thank you for not hating! My Daytona started out as a regular white dialled steel Daytona, but I always liked the white gold dials, so had one installed. Most Rolex ADs frown upon this, and certainly Rolex SA. There are dials to be found on the second hand market, for crazy prices. And dirty back alley watchmakers to install it, I imagine. (Not that installing a dial is rocket science.) Or you can find a decent AD who acknowledges that you, and not Rolex, own your watch, and fixes everything.
^^ i think the panda dial is super cool. if i ever get a speedy id also go panda with that. ^^
its nothing crazy, but it satisfies. kind of like a snickers.
it has a round face. it is mechanical. it is made by a brand you will have heard of.
Now THAT is truly awesome. Customized Daytona. Balls!
I feel like that does not really lower the potential choices by very much .
Hmmmm, is is more or less than 40mm. I am guessing, JUST GUESSING, a JLC MUT 38mm.
indeed it does not.
i wish it was a JLC MUT the one i love with a small seconds dub dial, in gold. sadly, it is not that intriguing. here is another hint, its something that i never would have thought of had i not been fortunate enough for it to come my way.
all should be revealed some time next week, for better or worse.
Exited for you, stitch!
Dino ... lovely pics ... what is the reference number on this "LV"? I am smitten with it. Thanks in advance!!
ill just say, if this falls through, ima be one mad dude. i will cease discussions now until all my ducks are in a row.
SHIZNIT! Interest quotient is through the roof now!!
But I feel you my man. No jinxes and best of luck. I'm sure whatever you get is going to be awesome..
Some pictures of what I believe is the the most beautiful Reverso:
Can't wait till its reveal. And two years is way too long, isn't us all about impulse buys?
Indeed a very elegant watch, anyone care to explain how moon phases work??
Some miscellaneous watches I photographed badly:
My daily wear Constellation, bumper wind from the early 50s (completely overhauled by Omega about four-five years ago), with a cal.321 pre-moon Speedmaster-note the applied Omega symbol (runs well, but the chrono minute hand fell off and is floating around in the case)
Heuer Autavia - likely a post-Viceroy Viceroy variant but hard to tell
Breitling Transocean from the 70s
Two pie-pan Constellations
One is a moonphase, whereas the other is a day-night indicator. In essence, the moonphase runs every 29.5 days or whatever, and the day-night indicator is kind of like a GMT wheel... except prettier, and not as useful.
