    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.

    That Reverso is gorgeous, I really like the look of the brown Fagliano strap. I always thought the black-strapped version looked a bit unorthodox (I guess I just don't like black for what seems to be a very casual looking watch strap), but the brown really ties the whole look together. I really hope I can get my hands on a Reverso one day.

    And that is a lovely Hamilton, an excellent choice for your first automatic. Slightly reminiscent of the GO Senator Sixties, in my most humble of opinions.

    Also, some great watches that have been posted lately. Truly, this has been one of the threak's golden eras.

    Sounds like a great day Stitches. I know I always enjoy taking a look at few watches and talking about them with a few people who share the same interest.

    Only slightly uglier than some of the robocop monstrosities posted lately.

    i can neither confirm or deny these allegations.


    exactly. i was really lucky in that all the SAs i spoke to had a genuine interest in watches, and watch making. despite knowing i had no intention of making a purchase, they were all all very gracious with their time even offering to show me things i didnt ask to see. the breguet lady even offered me a loupe to scope out the skeletonized tourb, the guilloche dials, and the movements through the case back. it was a wonderful experience.

    Hey Stitch, sorry no photos. It just seemed like it would not have been a good opportunity, since it was indoors at night and they had a professional photographer using a flash and I didn't want to annoy him or the boutique director. They did have some great watches, Astrotourbillon, Skeleton Santos Dumont (in white gold and carbon coated titanium), Rotonde Tourbillon, Calibre Perpetual Calendar, Pasha Skeleton Tourbillon, Rotonde Perpetual Calendar and several other great pieces. If anyone is in Boston they should check out these watches while they are still at the boutique (they will be there until Sunday). My only issue with some of their pieces, is that on the automatic watches, I really felt for the price they cost they should have a rotor made of precious metal.
    Congrats and enjoy!

    no worries. glad you had a good time. sounds like pr0n heaven. and yes, precious metal rotors are a nice extra touch and often really should be done as standard at a certain price point, at least imo.
