I actually prefer the Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon, very simple and elegant.
Can't disagree with that one!
Here's some true watch p0rn:
I believe Texasmade and I were slightly misquoted. We were specifically discussing automatic movements in ladies watches, not mechanical movements which include manual wind movements.
Yes, JLC's cal 101 is quite famous. It powered the watch Queen Elizabeth II was wearing during her coronation ceremony. Its an absolutely amazing achievement to make a manual wind movement, which is that small. Unfortunately, I'm sure a combination of the cost of production and the limited number of women that want to manual wind a watch on a regular basis limit its use in a larger number of watches.
What's more formal: leather strap or metal bracelet? I'm debating between the Citizen WR100 with a black leather strap or a steel bracelet.

While, I consider a leather strap more formal, I always opt for the medal bracelet and buy a leather strap from one of the after-market manufacturers. An OEM & after-market medal bracelet is going to be more difficult to find and more expensive.
1. Enough with the casuistry please. It's not impossible in the literal sense, its impossible in a practical one. Everyone happy?
2. Watch over the cuff is the Gianni Agnelli trademark. I'm not badass enough to pull it off.
great watch, and its priced very well for a tourbillon from a major manfacture. iirc they made it available in steel for the purpose of making a tourbillon available under 50K.
i would love to sit and talk watches with GDL some day.
glashütte original thursdays..
lol, nor i. i also always get a kick when i see pics of the late nick hayek wearing up to 4 watches on EACH wrist.
what a beautiful watch. if you only wear it on thursdays id be glad to take it off your wrist for the remainder of the week.
No one other than Gianni Agnelli could pull off wearing a watch over the cuff.
Love the GO chrono! What do you wear on the other days of the week?
