    Don't go crazy on the straps - that's a pan00beristi mistake. I've got a whole box of straps I don't use so remind me next time you're in town. I'll cut you a deal :smarmy:

    Initially I thought they were weird. Then a friend walked into my offiice saw the photo and asked if I was buying a motor for a boat. I like great cufflinks, but honestly I think those are ugly.
    Congrats Stitch! I'm glad you stayed on track and got a watch you truly wanted. I'm a big fan of the "Sandwich" dial. Congrats again and enjoy!!!

    I'm not a fan either, just thought some here might find 'em interesting. That screw detail kinda looks like a Montblanc logo at a glance. Probably obnoxiously expensive too.



    What's this? Open stitching, rough edges and sewn in buckle?

    At first glance I also thought it was something from Montblanc. Then I saw RM on the links and realized that is one of his bolts (like on his watches). To be honest, I don't care for his watches either. Still thanks for sharing, its always interesting to see what is on the market (both in the world of watches and cufflinks).

    that actually makes me like it more. :hide:

    speaking of cufflinks, i LOVE the breguet cufflinks with dial pieces and rotors.

    I used to not be a Pam fan - but I got an absolute huge 127 and I end up wearing it more than my Rolex Sub just because it is easy to read.

    I have no idea what models. I am not a watch guy. One looks like yours with a second hand and you have to wind it. The other is automatic. One by my uncle and one by my father. (My father is a watch guy).

    Hi Stitch, I agree, Breguet makes some stunning cufflinks! I've seen them in person and photos do not do them justice. I didn't know they also offered them with pieces of black dial. Until now I had only seen them with the silver/white. If I owned a Breguet I might be very tempted...I'm sure my wife is relieved I don't own the watch so I don't "need" the cufflinks.
