    because a matter of months ago he couldn't even fit a simple blazer or cut his hair properly and now he's accessorized like Aristotle Onassis?? come on.... harsh yes, but true. I really loathe the SF sycophancy.

    I think the majority of my blazers fit fine, and cutting my hair properly is subjective.

    So the kid has a Rolex which he didn't 'earn'. Grow some balls and deal with it - i.e. not on an internet message board.

    So lets get back to the watches...

    ...or pocket watches. :slayer:

    I did say a matter of months ago, however, you are right... as shown above, I stand corrected. This is fabulous.... you are obviously a natural. As you were Mr. O.

    Apologies gents... now yes back to the watches... I like that pocket Apropos. How old is it? I posted an early 1900's Elgin gold pocket a ways back... I think I'm beginning to like them more and more although I don't imagine having the opportunity to wear one very often.

    Impulse purchase today - been hanging for a memovox. Got this one - 1953 JLC memovox in gold. My jlc collection almost complete - just need a vintage reverso.

    Absolutely stunning!! Where do you find most of your vintage pieces? I have a couple on vintage Omegas but would love to buy a couple JLC vintage pieces.
