    Yesterday was a great watch porn day.

    Went to wempe, and the breguet flagship boutique in NYC. An amazing minute repeater at breguet being the highlight, just wow. Also never saw so many tourbs in day.

    Met up with dopey and gdl. Dopey was wearing a vintage omega. gdl was wearing his watch from the OP, and was kind enough to let me take this homage pic.

    he even let my wear it myself and take my own pic. I chose a steak backdrop.

    Stitch,

    why is there a "water drop" on the Paneri? It doesn't look like the date magnifier, is it a smudge on your camera lens?

    Beautiful Reverso. Definitely one of my favorite recent releases from JLC.

    Sounds like you had a great day. There are definitely lots of Tourbillons in the nice boutiques and AD's such as Cellini on Madison Ave. I'm going to a Cartier Fine Watch Making Event tonight at my local boutique. Should be a lot of fun, they will have an Astrotouibillon (the toubillion moves around the dial), a skeleton tourbillon Pasha, Skeleton Santos Dumont with black carbon coating on the case, several other tourbillons and complicated watches. I'm looking forward to a great evening of watch P0rn.

    Hey Stitch, I'll see what I can do about getting some photos. The last time I went to their boutique in Chicago they didn't want me taking any photos. Not sure if it will be different at my local boutique.

    The watch also looks misty, as if someone was breathing a bit too fast and was dripping excitement.

    Great to see the Reverso on the brown Fagliano. I was thinking it would look 'off' not matching like a belt leather and shoe leather--but gotta say, it looks really nice on the brown shell. Hoping to try one on later this week.
