GP, Panerai, Hublot, and now Richard Mille and that's all within this millennium! That's a lot! In a very short period of time! Good one FabR!

Did it all started with Heuer?

 
 By: Weems@8 : February 23rd, 2021-12:43
And Heuer is now Red Bull. Compare Valerie, Louis, and Max, i think IWC have won the match best F1 time keeper.

when one start disliking 'date' windows when one start hating 'automatique/automatic' on dial when one starting the second next watch to buy even before the next watch being purist is a fun ! cdt, mahesh.,

About that date window...

 
 By: VinnieD : February 23rd, 2021-12:55
Could we envision a Purists edition of a well known watch that would be customised without a date? Any ideas? Something not totally unreasonable in terms of budget? Maybe a nice enamel from Breguet?

You know you're a Purist when you miss departed members of our community . . .

 
 By: Dr No : February 23rd, 2021-13:09
. . . more than some of your own family. 😐 Many to speak of, but thinking mainly of Andrew Daily, our first HoMe moderator. Yes, he was a Pink Floyd fan. 😔 ...

I truly don't know what he's doing, Julian, although I would expect . . .

. . . he's still active in the medical profession. I tried contacting him a few years ago without reply. I'd try again, but respect for his privacy prevents me from doing so. Art
