A. Lange & Söhne: Sacrilege!!

Not a fan, but always good to change it up. Or maybe I’m just jealous as I really really want a Lange 1!

A. Lange & Söhne: I agree, it’s nice when they go up if it allows me to buy into something higher end...

...but that’s as far as an ‘investment’ watches are for me. Every penny I’ve ever made on a watch has just gone back into other watches, and in some cases has enabled me to afford watches I couldn’t otherwise afford or be justified in spending. E.g I have a rose gold Lange because 10 years before I

Automotive: Nice!!

My first car was a 1.4 Renault Clio RT 1995 model! I was 17, so 20 years ago now. Obviously not cool or sporty, but I loved it!

Horological Meandering: Looks similar to my ‘Postala’.

I don’t know much about it, except that it loses a few minutes a day but isn’t worth the service cost, but still brings a smile on the occasional day I wear it.

Patek Philippe: Congrats!!

I tried one on at an AD last year, and one of the things I really loved about it is the feeling of heft on the wrist. It’s not a large watch, but you really feel it. I ended up going with an 1815 Up/Down in the end, but if I ever decide to let it go, the 5196 is definitely what I’ll replace it with.

Horological Meandering: If someone is that desperate to scream ‘look at how rich I am!!’ wouldn’t it be easier to just print their net work and glue it to their forehead? Or maybe have it printed on their business card?

This might be the worst thing I have ever seen. Can you imagine the kind of person that would buy something like this? The company is calls ‘Caviar’ ffs. It’s ghastly.

Independents: I’ve never had a particularly strong opinion either way about guilloche dials..

...but I was fortunate enough to handle a Czapek recently, and was absolutely blown away. It was truly stunning. I don’t know an awful lot about Czapek, but I fell in love, and would love to own one someday.

Horological Meandering: Shipping question for the USA based Purists...

I have a watch listed in chrono24, and a buyer in the UK is very interested. Obviously I’ll need to get references and do some research, but we’ve exchanged lots of messages and my gut says he’s legit. I’ve never shipped a watch internationally before, as usually I’ll just say CONUS only, but I woul

Rolex: I wouldn’t say I’m having reservations about my ‘behavior’ per se...

...I’ve been completely honest with everything. In fully good faith I’ve described the timing as good, because it’s good as far as I’m concerned. My only reservation is that I realized I don’t know what most would consider ‘good’, so I don’t want it to appear fishy if I’ve described it as good and t
