In all but the snob circles those with such panache never seem to speak with such panache in most circles for fear of limping home with a jaw full of panache, and loose teeth.

Fortunately I've only just heard of him. Most of the human race insults me by simply breathing. How will I pick him out of the crowd?

I peruse this thread every now and then, love to see a good looking watch.
First posted back on page 3, almost a year after purchasing a new 2531.80.00. I've had it about 5 1/2 yrs and it's been a great piece, gets worn every day.
