    I think they are really lovely watches. Here you can see a pic of mine: They are great. I think that the problem is that some people compare them to Patek Philippe, and they are not. Of my watches, this in the top 3 of compliments.
    Wow! Very nice. I'm dying to know: what are the other two compliment-getters?
    One of my most beloved watches:
    Gorgeous Dornblueth there. I have yet to see one of those in person, but they look absolutely great from the photos I've seen.

    Maybe my Calatrava and my IWC 7 days.

    Thanks very much for your comments.

    I'm currently saving up my money for the Oris Artelier Skeleton watch. I absolutely love the way it looks.
    Does anyone here have any experience with Oris though? I do not know anybody who owns one, so I haven't been able to ask anyone for general impressions with the brand.

    Thinking of buying this. Any thoughts ? I love rectangular watches and have the JLC Reverso and the GP 1945.

    like it! knowing it's a jlc movement made me take a second look and it's nice for a rectangular watch that isn't as gimmicky as the reverso. i think i also liked a new reverso model in a larger size but classic face and exhibition back. gp's are nice as well.

    Thoughts on the Parmigiani Kalpa? I don't know much about the brand but I really like the look.

    Two atrociously expensive educations in NYC... I had to re- order some priorities over the last couple of years.

    Looks fine to me. I normally don't like rectangular watches, but this looks pretty good to me.

    Love that Omega, economiayocio [​IMG]

    I love the looks of those. I just wish they weren't all above 40mm.
