    Bedat no. 7 (from about 2004, when the bedats themselves were still with the company.) Bedat doesn't get too much play, but I like them... they are simple, classic, with SLIGHT twists/variations on classic designs, and I find them reasonably priced. I got this one to replace my older Cartier tank Basculante, which always felt rather insubstantial to me... though I loved the shape.

    Love the deco look. I was trying to track down a Davosa with a similar design but apparently they don't sell them too widely outside of Germany and Switzerland.

    What I wore today:

    I like the way the Medici strap is ageing. Anyone know whether there are any Hirsch bands in the same leather with a non-curved end?

    ^You really can't go wrong with a nice Seiko. I have one... my first "real" watch from my first year of college... and it's still going strong. Anyway, today I decided to go with a classic... [​IMG]

    Is that the Master Ultra Thin? It's a beautiful watch.

    Thanks! Yes, it's the 35mm JLC MUT. I have quite small wrists, so it's almost the perfect size and perfect watch. All around, aesthetically and mechanically, great for dress (IMHO).

    I kind of dig that. The #8 really give is a deco look. Very cool.

    I really wish they made the new 40mm model with the 3, 6, and 9 numbers on the dial. Stupid line marks [​IMG]
