Not the first GO I've wanted, but this PML is the first I've bought

Its grey (ruthenium? anthracite?) dial and substantial nubuck alligator strap give this watch a full, mature feel. Given my current frame of mind, I'd go as far as to say 'age appropriate.'

Watches of distinction are sometimes described as head-turners. Not here, hopefully. The nice thing about this one is that it can pass unnoticed when it's not hiding under the cuff. A purely private pleasure... so satisfying...

That it comes in at one quarter of the price of its illustrious predecessor is a bit of a thrill too. I've always been a value collector focused on getting the most out of my money and, in this regard, this is a bonkers good watch.

p.s. Apologies for the random acts of cat fur and dust. I'm moving house and it's a building site beyond this photo.

black dial GOs myself. Out of curiosity, what was the predecessor?

Well, the one I REALLY wanted for a while was none other than ‘The Eye of Sauron.’

That was the 2019 (if I recall correctly) edition of the 1960s line. A three hander with an in-house dial and in-house movement and that crazy burnt orange. I would pick it up in a flash but as I’m supposed to be downsizing right now I’m trying to stay to...

Meow! The cat agrees that this is a cool watch!

The cat probably wants to claim your watch by putting fur all over your watch!

🙂 It’s a really top watch.

As for Jackson and Liv, my goodness, there’s not an inch of this place they haven’t made their own…

They're going to cover the next place with their fur too!

They'll be furring up the place on the double with the new place!

Indeed! Lucky cats!
