Patek Philippe: Not to say Patek should copy the old...

but the DNA here is oozing character... it makes one quiet with earthly awe... As fine and beautiful as so many modern watches are... one shakes one's head... why can they not make them like they used to???

Patek Philippe: Of course it's overrated...

Esp the green... OMG... but no one cares... if the bracelet is flimsy and the movement pedestrian... Or that the RO smashes it on every level... NO. One. Cares... (but I have noticed the RO achieving equal and even beyond equal aftermarket... to my astonishment... but absolutely deserved... OK rant

Horological Meandering: Patek is classic, very nice, a true Patek... yet...

a bit of a stuffy snoozer. LF is IMO, overrated... Of the 3, only the VC has je ne sais quoi... some mystery... and originality... a real choice. Now for value... perhaps the Patek... but then again... not so much with these type models... LF... neither value nor 'that certain something'... I find L

Glashütte Original: I can NOT allow the GO date to be villified

LOL the DATE is GO DNA. Period. True, many watch dials are ruined by a date... but this ain't THAT. This is a dial defined BY the DATE. (like Lange) Like Rolex for that matter. Love it and all who say it should go... do not 'get' or even understand the history, DNA of GO. mmmm kaaay?

Patek Philippe: I think that's a decent trade...

You had an AP--but not a fully iconic AP--and you traded laterally for probably a 'better' choice in terms of trade-ability and liquidity if necessary--- but !! Do you like it better?? All that matters. The 'catch' is only for a week or two... in terms of emotions!

Horological Meandering: I was sorely tempted by Sub 200

but I had recently picked up a Seiko X (similar priced) diver that kept terrible time... losing/gaining 20 sec's a day...

Blancpain: I don't love the no rads thing...

I never have liked it... but the wrist-stance of the watch, the bracelet... the whole--is fantastic--worn this watch and all the FF's so many times... love them all but... I personally am waiting for the straightforward classic 40-42mm FF with date or without... on bracelet... it will be amazing...
