No safe queen here . . . I actually wear this watch :) I must admit I love the steampunk nature of it; it has a little bit.

I waited 8 long years for this watch. Paid my 50% deposit and it sat with Harry Winston for 8 years without

It’s good to hear that story

 By: cazalea : June 27th, 2019-16:25
Even though it was a pain for you.

I thought perhaps you had gone watch-crazy and been able to snap up all these cool watches in a matter of weeks!

Nothing wrong with that ... but I’m sure there are others besides me wondering how you got all the leverage on the watch dealers!



Haha! No it’s taken me years to collect. I just don’t part with them very often and I should. [nt]

An amazing timepiece, by a couple of the top genius watchmakers. Very happy to see one being worn as it should be ;-)

Many thanks Tim! You have been a great supporter of the independents in so many ways. Bravo! [nt]

This is actually a very legendary watch.

How is the accuracy like?

Teacher Yang, the accuracy is pretty darn good actually. I get so caught up in watching those wheels turn that I rarely

Looks hefty!

I have seen n tried on one in 18KPG.. photos do no justice to these pieces cause you will never understand how intense these pieces are in your hand. I can’t imagine one in PT950. 

Congrats. Wear in good health. 


Thank you. It’s heavy and really solid feeling. I like the weight of it. [nt]
