    Vintage Hamilton and Longines do this aesthetic a million times better.

    From the images posted, the Glashutte looks rather cheap.

    The gold hands and numbers look shoddy and more appropriate on a $50 watch from a flea market.

    Is that the Thom Browne approved watch?

    Methinks modern watches are a bit too large to be Thom Browne-approved. '60s watches were relatively small in proportion to today's behemoths.


    At the Black Fleece event he said that mine is "a great looking watch."

    How large is the diameter? I suspect it's about 34mm?

    My circa 1949 18k Omega is 34mm and it's a nice size though for dressier watches, I feel 29mm is perfect.


    Seriously, do you have the wrist of a woman?

    He may have just been hitting on you, I hear that he's keen on bears. [​IMG]

    Then Socal wouldn't be his type as socal has less meat than a Vegan barbeque.

    Being of the Oriental persuasion, I am indeed slighter than more husky types.

    From what I understand a bear is a homosexual man of the burly nature who is hairy.

    Oh that would explain that. I stand (sit) corrected.

    To fit the TB esthetic, shouldn't TB watches be so tight your hand turns black?

    Neither. You're a fashionista. There should be your picture in wikipedia when someone searches this term
