    PG, that looks nice.
    Rolex?

    - yes
    Does Rolex make a plain SS Datejust in the 41 mm size ? Something like this ..
    - google will tell you that is the new DateJustII
    That is an awesome watch, cannot thing of anything more versatile actually. Could you tell us which reference it is?
    - SS OysterDate from 1969, never polished or retouched +box & papers

    Isn't that Rolex a good bit smaller in diameter than the watches you've worn in the past?

    Late to the party.

    My first automatic (present from my wife). Temporary black strap until I find something nicer. Any feedback on Hirsch?

    Minor problem with getting this watch. I've now ordered another Seiko, a couple of NOS manual wind watches and am very tempted by a s/h Titoni... Is this more addictive than shoes? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^ Nice. Not a big watch guy, so I'm giving this one a try. Just got it in the mail today.

    I can confirm that there are. Unfortunately. Pretty good ones, so be careful. Always buy the seller etc ...

    But, we're here for the p0rn right? I enjoy the AD purchasing experience, but I can't afford to do it too often. So I have my own AD display at home. Picking one out for the day is a pleasure [​IMG]

    Nice shot - did someone already ask you what's the vintage on your Subs?

    Nice Seiko's! ManofKent, do you know what the source/model number of your watch is? I really like the style of that one, and have had good luck with Seiko 5's already....

    Thank you! The 5513 is 69/70. The Tudor Sub on NATO is a 79090, mid 80s. All the others are modern sapphire I'm afraid. 5513: [​IMG] 79090: [​IMG] Today is Omega-day. SM300, this one is a modern build of NOS/vintage/modern orginal Omega replacement parts by WatchCo. Nothing for the purists, but I love it [​IMG] I know mesh is not everyone's cup of tea, but the sturdy Omega sharkmesh suits this one I think. Beyond comfortable, anyway. [​IMG]

    Here is one that you don't see everyday. It's a first-generation Ventura V-matic Chronograph.

    Decent looking sleeve/cuff/watch combo ruined by rank schmutter pointlessly wrapped round your wrist. Time to put away childish things.

    Your douche levels are high. What do you have against bracelets?

    I really like that mesh bracelet.
