Unfortunately, I had quite a few cars that statement could have applied to. lol
Very cool Mr. Dandy! Wear it in good health.
Happy Birthday @RidingDonkeys , here's a shitty picture of a movement!
Man, even with decent light and manual control, trying f/8, I can't seem to get a deep enough depth of field to show the levels of the movement crisply. I have a pro-sumer Lumix with full manual control, but still can't seem to get it work.
Anyway, Happy Birthday!
For me, the 2002 hurts the most. One of the most fun cars I’ve ever owned, and worth so much these days. If it weren’t for an assignment in Germany I never would have sold it. But I met my wife on that assignment, so I guess I shouldn’t complain.
Congratulations, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have mine.
Happy belated B-Day !
Bleach can’t wash the visual of this sentence from the eyes, but I’m trying to mentally overcome.
You never know. Maybe some day I'll see one that I lust for.
Im going to make it even worse and say that I've never seen a Rolex Sub or Sea dweller that speaks to me. The hands look too small and seem to get lost in the dial.
My issue with the Subs and Sea Dwellers is that I've seen too many of them in the wild. Now, I've never once seen my lust, an Air King, outside of an AD. And that happens to be the first Rolex I plan on owning.

But wait, there's more...
Glycine Combat Classic in the same price range:
Cool, thanks. Might pick one up.
Look at the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms.
There are a few Rolex owners who agree with that choice. And, to be fair and balanced, another thread on the Rolex forum. It seems, based on many reviews, that the X71 bracelet on the BFF is supposed to be one of the best available in the world of watches. I don't own one so I can't personally say one way or the other. Others prefer the sailcloth strap.
The BFF outsizes the sub, pictures from one of the threads linked above to follow, but, due to the short, curved lugs, it's wearable for most.
Got this link in an email from Moritz Grossman today. I love Christine Hutter and could talk to her for hours. She invited me to tour their facility the next time I'm in Germany, and I may well take her up on that when I've got enough in the watch fund to make that trip fruitful. In the meantime, this digital tour will have to do. Hang out until the 6:46 mark to see their rapid winding feature. Very neat stuff.
Here is some more Moritz Grossman awesomeness. Christine will make whatever you want...even putting your child's art on the dial (3:50).
I know WatchTime LA was postponed, but for those that end up going, spend some time at the Moritz Grossman table. You won't be disappointed.
Well shoot. I wasn't aware that it had been postponed until I saw your message. That email went to my junk folder. It's still on my to-do list even if I have to wait until 2021.
