TimeOut: Walking around upper east side...

...and came upon Twain Time. 19 E. 69th. Really nice selection. Lots of Pateks. Tried on a 5050J and a 5170J. Really love the old-school offerings : ) Other recommendations (from them) were David Ashton (it was closed) and Madison Time. Will report back if I go Monday.

TimeOut: In New York for a wedding...

...and will have Monday off to explore while my better half works : ) Any good suggestions/hidden gems other than the usual big watch stores I should know about? I would ask my son (who lives here) but ‘kids these days’ tell time from their phones... Thanks. m
