Jaeger-LeCoultre: The *Polaris* is much loved...

... the endless facile iterations and concomitant lack of imagination, less so. The 2008 Tribute to Polaris was well received and thoughtfully rendered. JLC should have stopped there and worked hard to create tomorrow's classic rather than yet another permutation of yesterday's. Best, Tim

Omega: Wow, I'm loving that strap and watch combo

Well done! This De Ville Hour Vision and its annual calendar counterpart are two of my favorite Omegas of all-time. It looks like they'll be joining a lovely collection, and that strap perfectly suits the De Ville. Best, Tim

Automotive: Exciting news - congratulations!

I've been a fan of Corvette racing since my high school days when Johnny O'Connell kindly spoke with me, took a few photos, and signed my race program at Petit Le Mans 2001.

Assuming cash funding is in place and you enjoy the model, the only reason not to would be a different watch that you enjoy more. It's not another vintage Daytona, and thank God or gods for that. Questions to ask: Have you worn a 4178? Does the size work for you? Are you rough on watches or otherwis

Horological Meandering: Here's a way to calculate the financial responsibility of your watch hobby.

Don't look at the total value of the watches in relation to your net worth or net income. First, look at the watches as a hobby-experience purchases with discretionary income . You probably have a better understanding of your sustainable non-essential expense budget than the appropriate ratio of a t

Audemars Piguet: Legibility is better in person than the photo, but the contrast remains challenging due to the monotone dial-hand tandem.

This is the kind of watch that you need to view, focus, and then discern; a quick glance will not do. Of course, if you plan to read the perpetual calendar precisely, a still-higher level of effort is required. I'd compare the contrast of this AP to the post-2017 Rolex Yacht-Master II stainless stee

Audemars Piguet: Do you live in New York City? That helps.

The sunset and sunrise complications are localized, but the rest should be fine regardless. As for the fit of the 43mm case, I found it wearable on a 16cm wrist, but anything smaller might be impractical. Best, Tim
