    Any love for my simple BM?
    Definitely. Cool watch and a genuinely original design amidst all the me-too divers. Enjoy!

    Here is a casual day with Patek 5712G.

    Great watch. I just returned from visiting an AD where I found myself drooling over several PPs. I prefer simple watches, but I still get excited about the complications when I see them.

    Just picked up a Stowa Antea with an extra brown leather strap for $300 in like new condition. Not the most expensive watch but I really like it.

    I've got an Orange Monster with a Bond strap on my wrist today for furniture moving. It sure takes a beating.

    One of the least loved Patek designs also happen to be one of my favourite, as long as it's on leather.

    I like your watch.

    Nice picture! Panerai definitely has its place in a well rounded sporty collection. Your buddy has good taste.

    Here is a manual wind Panerai Radiomir with the 8 day JLC movement. Rose gold for the pink cloud days. I don't wear this one often enough.

    What kind of seiko is that? And I'm assuming the T for tritium? I know that's what it is supposed to mean, I've just never seen it on a seiko before.

    it's a modified sk007, with dial and hands by bill yao of MKII. I'm also unsure about the T- i had the idea that nobody used tritium any more because of its radioactive content ( i could be wrong).
    the dial is essentially a 'homage' to the design of the omega sm300 and i believe some of those had a T on the dial so perhaps its just there for authenticity's sake?
