This is in response to the BigP dissing of today... Here's some not-so-unwanted attention! These are some really nice pictures of the original Big Pilot, gdl. How come that you didn't just change the strap, but the folding clasp as well? I prefer the folding buckles, as they make sure the watch won't drop by accident when you put it on or take it off. Thanks for your comments about the Journe RDM. My personal favourite of the Octas is the Calendrier. I posted the pictures of the T3 and the BP as well as the Journes and the Patek to show that a watch collector can love big as well as small watches. My smallest watch is a Patek 5034. It is tiny compared to the T3. Still, I like wearing both of them on the right occasion.
