    Apropos watch related...

    [​IMG]

    Created over two years, they're made from grade 5 titanium, and feature a patented mechanism that opens the twin titanium bars using push-pieces and close by pressing on the top plate, resulting in cufflinks that contain 38 components each.

    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?
