Patek Philippe: My 7.25" Wrist is slightly larger...

...so I'm confident that I could pull this one off. My concern is the thickness. For a 'dressy' watch, it is a fattie. I wish PP could have found a way to use the 240 movement instead...

...even great photos don't do them justice. Well worth the visit.

Vacheron Constantin: The Overseas QP is interesting...

especially on a strap. But the way VC handles months/leap-year is a disaster. Unfortunately they do it this way on almost all of their PCs.

Independents: I appreciate the unusual layouts of GF watches...

...and especially the amazing finishing. But they leave me cold for a couple of reasons. The first is the size...they are HUGE. They are THICK. I can't imagine wearing most of their models on a 7.25" wrist. I give them a pass on the prices as one man's $200k is another man's $20k...let the market de

Photography: I was going off of the lake...

...and the swan paddle boats. Ueno Park has fantastic art museums and, when I once visited, a huge outdoor pottery show. The area around the train tracks was especially lively near the station. I always tell visitors to Japan, ‘The closer you are to the train tracks, the more fun you’ll have.’ : )

Patek Philippe: I think we could all...

Learn a lot from you. I am a free-market kind of guy. If I were incredibly rich (I’m not), or if I’d inherited a fortune (haven’t and won’t), I would pay top dollar and enjoy the ‘experience.’ But if that experience costs thousands of dollars it’s not going to happen. As I get older I may relax my s
