Horological Meandering: The comment under the screenshot says it all.

Sadly, the practical reality of wearing some of these epic-scale watches can be intimidating and dangerous. Even though I wear a pretty basic Sinn watch, I still take care to avoid naive assumptions about the safety and risk of neighborhoods and localities that are unfamiliar to me. A $3,000- $4,000

Patek Philippe: The dog head is a post-1995 Swiss precious metal hallmark

The diamond-shaped punch is a St. Bernard dog head, and the letter on its neck kerchief is "G," because Geneva is the location of the Swiss assay office that punched the case. PPCo is just a note that this is part of Patek's manufacture case series. In previous eras, Patek cases were created by cont

Chopard: That's a nice gesture.

Also, it's cool to see an original St. Moritz surface after the breathless reactions to last week's Alpine Eagle launch. Though clearly derivative, the old design has held up well. Best, Tim

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Beautiful watch, thanks for sharing

The Latitude is an underrated Reverso. In addition to launching with a blue dial before that was cool, the silver/white palette of the dial is timelessly beautiful. Gotta love the lume, too. Best, Tim

TimeOut: On the other hand...

... a woman who recognizes and takes interest in a 5711 is a woman I want to know. I've seen that the demographics of my YouTube audience amount to 97%+ male users, but that 2-ish percent of females probably contains interesting folks. Best, Tim Best, Tim

Omega: I think it looks cool, but...

... given my extensive experience with that watch, I'll advise that thickness and awkward fit are a problem on many wrists. If that's a true under-slung NATO strap, there's a good chance the watch will stand about 20mm thick on your wrist. Best, Tim

Breguet: I call 1990s vintage, but "vintage" is an advancing front that envelops a new group of watches each year.

Audemars Piguet: Absolute fire, thanks for posting

A lucky man! Somehow, I can't seem to find myself in the same place as this watch at the same time. I've already experienced the white ceramic model from this past June, but it's two years and counting since the black perpetual, and no luck! Best, Tim

Audemars Piguet: I like it, but I also loved the original 26579CE

Some folks say the original was too stark, but I liked it. The skeleton is hot - undeniably - but I'm not sure I desire it more than the original. That felt like a paradigm change while the new watch feels like a (compelling) refinement. Best, Tim
