    Mimo! Looks great on him! I am sure he will wear it and love it for years to come. It fits his wrist perfectly.

    What is the case/bracelet. Is it treated steel? Its nice but not very distinctive. I'd rather see you get something that is totally different from anything you have, and which is something you will only see from Rado. I really like Kaplan's suggestion.
    Great photo and great choice for your son's first mechanical watch! Well done Mimo.

    ^^^

    Agreed. This is a great tradition and will be a great memory for both of you.

    The best part about this thread was the full frontal of Kate Upton wearing that perp cal minute repeater. And it's just a few pages back ...

    thanks Kaplan... great suggestion.


    It is the newest version of their high-tech ceramic... supposedly it is almost indestructible. I hear where you guys are coming from and that model is much more distinctive and completely different from anything else I own. I've just started this search so thank you all for your thoughts and opinions. :nodding:


    and I missed this one earlier... wow.

    The Cosmopolite is beautiful as a piece of art, but my goodness is it large! I just think that 48mm is unwearable for me. I think it would have been nice if they had foregone the tourby.

    ^ I didn't realize it's that big! No way I could pull that off. Seems it would be much more practical without the tourby... agreed.

    I am just going to go out there and say it. That is about THE MOST lovely tourbillon watch I have ever seen. And a 14 day power reserve for a watch with a tourby? Holy balls. The watch has personality as well, which I admire.

    I would do bad things for one of those. That price is pretty ridonculous as well.

    I really enjoy the asymmetry of the dial.

    I like this version, very tasty.

    +1 kinda like the yellow gold version a little better...as long as we're dreaming.

    And Frilly I have no idea what G-Shock she's wearing, but I don't think anyone has ever smirked a better smirk than that young lady is smirking in the pic that you posted :satisfied:
