    No need for that (at least with regards to me), as I'm sure your collection can easily outshine my modest threesome [​IMG]

    But it's one HOT threesome (that any guy would be lucky to have) [​IMG]. While I admire ultra-complicated and ultra-expensive watches, I prefer ones I can actually wear for anything. As a result, my pieces are all steel, and their reputations for reliability largely influenced their entrance into my collection (less so on the PP, which is also my favorite).

    What's the largest watch that would be suitable for a 6.5" wrist? 42mm?

    Totally depends on style (optics-wise) and shape (comfort-wise). I'm quite sure that a 6,5" wrist can pull off a 44mm Panerai, for example.

    You guys have a recommendation on a leather strapmaker? Plain, no particular style, but I'm interested in a honey color and want it in 19mm. Can't seem to find one by the usual makers and I don't want to commission a croc strap for this watch.

    Yes, this is mine. The reflection of the crystal is a real b!tch. Will use a circular polariser to bring out the contrast of the dial.
    Gorgeous. I love the simplicity.

    Very nice - we don't see enough pocket watches on here.

    I like the way it maintains a relatively clean design despite the extra features.

    Lowering the tone a little with a new watch for wearing with jeans. The Hirsch Medici strap cost nearly as much as the watch (Seiko 5 SKEN61) , but it looks so much better on leather:

    Thank you

    I like this a lot. Who's the maker?

    It is Rodina - Родина.

    The first soviet watch with auto movement. 1956-1960 years

    It was made on the first Moscow watches factory.

    Croc. The watch is a Tissot that I'm considering putting up for sale but I think it might look nice on a honey leather. I don't want to spend a ton on the strap.
