    Here's another compliment, that's a very nice watch! Particularly like it on the brown strap.

    That Cartier is trippy. I'd look down on a hot day and wonder if I'm melting.

    I like the Piaget. Just the best skeleton in my opinion.

    I haven't succeeded in obtaining pictures of lovely subdials from my friend, or at least ones that won't potentially get me banned from SF. However, here is a somewhat TWAT-related shot of my friend wearing a Panerai during a photoshoot.

    Not quite subdials, but here's a "caseback" shot. No, not quite a display back. Down, boys.

    JLC for the win, Fiddler! Beautiful!

    Thanks gents....I think the JLC Master Calendar goes equally well with casual as well as formal dress....very versatile. I very rarely wear my IWC FliegerChrono now....maybe I should break it out for a pic one of these days.

    I too am enjoying this watch on a brown strap, and I am jealous of its versatility. I need to figure out how to make the MUT Moon more versatile!!!

    The platinum version is nice, but I agree and think I prefer the gold. I like the warmth the gold adds to this fine time piece. I find the platinum version a bit too sterile, but if someone gifted it to me...I wouldn't kick it to the curb!
    Very nice!
    Spot on again Nuke! [​IMG] Their skeleton is just amazing!
    I really like that Cartier. If it were available as a men's watch without diamonds I would be very tempted to get one. The one in the photos is actually a ladies watch. However, they did make a men's watch called "The Crash." It looks like its melting. The legend behind it's inspiration was back in the late 1960s a Cartier London executive had a Bangnoire (an elongated oval shaped Cartier watch) when he was in a fatal auto accident. The car caught on fire and its melted remains inspired The Crash watch, which resembles the watches melting in the Dali painting. Today they are small by men's current watch standards, but very collectible because they were only ever made in very small batches often for special occasions (opening a new boutique in a famous city).
    Nice time "Pieces."
