    You look so happy that it doesn't really matter what we think

    Thanks - my partner is in NYC at the moment & she likes to see photos of what I am wearing on a daily basis (so I have had to have a sense of humour every morning taking self pics - hoping my neighbours don't see!)

    No offense, I have a collection of frames from the 50's to match my pens!

    I hope they're fountain pens.

    Italian resin pens by Delta. I have fountain, but also buy the rolling ball versions to use on a daily basis due to practicality - though I do carry the fountain version inside my coat (you just never know). Today's combination, same watch differnt look. [​IMG]

    I have a Delta Nautilus that is actually one of my favorite pens. Not the most expensive, but certainly the nib is rather impressive for a $300 pen, if not more than costlier pens.

    Handsome watch. WOngO. Different from the panerai herd.

    Nice tight cuffs on those jackets too. You are one puttogether dude.

    Now ... I used to wear glasses like those. [I look like you, but about 30 years older.]

    I would say ... that they are not good on Asian men. My reason: strong round frames on round faces are not an enhancement. Rectangular is better.

    Love and regards,

    Moose

    Your Manometro is very nice, especially the left hand crown at 10 o'clock. I bought British GQ and saw my very first full page ad for that watch. Usually that means we will see more PR on them to back up the advertiser. Have you seen his new sport version in what looks like carbon fiber?

    I prefer my (a lot cheaper...) original 60s Glashütte for just another while...

    I really like Wongo's watch. I went to the guy's website and it could be something I'd add to my wish list.

    I've done soul searching and while I love the IWC Regulateur, I need something with a sporty motif to go on my wrist.

    I'm thinking this:

    or the other version I'd have to buy used/not from an AD:

    Yes I saw the Manometro S (sport version made of carbon fibre) as well as the Manometro Cronograph.

    For me the Sport was too modern & reminded me of a Suunto sports watchs (though the cf was very impressive - I'd be tempted to get it to match my Cinelli full carbon road bike, but us roadies would never wear something as bulky etc on a ride).

    The Chronograph was very special, but more than I wanted to spend - maybe next time..
