Laine : Up close

Nov 18, 2020,18:36 PM
 

Some additional pictures of the Laine up close.  It has been a very satisfying watch, my only gripe is one I have with several watches...I just wish it was a little bit smaller.  I know I’ve said this before so apologies in advance for my repetition.


Some pictures...

Personally I’m rarely bothered by larger watches, but I can understand it’s a subjective matter...Enjoy this beauty!👍

A bit too large for me as well

I had the pleasure of trying a friend's watch. It's really lovely and a tremendous value proposition, especially considering the service, replacement dials and hands. I hope he comes out with a 38 mm soon. I'm kicking myself for missing out on his chronog... 

A smaller case is highly likely in the near future - stay tuned!

I for one am keen to have those dials in a smaller case

One word: Superb.

as opposed to a more complicated setup with my mirrorless cameras...

I've not bothered with a real camera for some time.

What I have struggled with is finding the right app for the iPhone such that one can isolate a single lens. They are out there, but I haven't managed to find one yet. I was able to purchase a specific phone mount for the loupe I own, which is helpful for ... 

Thanks Jay!

So, a question for you. Once your uni days have been left behind and (hopefully) you are gainfully employed is there a watch on your radar for years 1-5 of your career? And then, is there something that might be further out in terms of wishlist.

Excellent and difficult question that has plague me for years!!

Excellent and difficult question that has plague me for years!! I honestly have no idea, the watches I want all start at around 5 grand USD and there are very few watches below that. Some of the one below 5 grand that interest me are Girard Perregaux equa...

What struck me on first scroll is that many of these piece I see share a common theme, a non traditional aesthetic / design either in case or dial or both. We obviously buy what we like but I do think many of these pieces will because of how they look hav... 

Thank you!

I always enjoy the peculiar or the outcast in terms of watchmaking, something that brings something unique to the table. I said somewhere on this post that I think that watches have transitioned from a practical tool to an art form. As such, I like watche... 

Very nicely done, great pics!
