Horological Meandering: My UN not quite as legible

The red home time dial is very difficult to read in many cases as in the image below. I am wondering if I can have it changed to white one day. Love it nonetheless - the buttons are a great way of changing timezones. The JLC is also great and a bit more dressy (I wear it on a black strap which works

Horological Meandering: We have very similar taste in watches I think

Got the same exact JLC, a very similar UN dual time (both are super for travel) and Omegas (although I am a Speedmaster guy). A Rolex Batman is another one of my travel watches - gets a lot of wrist time and is a pleasure on the road.

Patek Philippe: Looks awesome on your wrist

Congrats - great watch. And the black you have would be my choice too. It's a common debate 5960 vs 5905 - similar in many ways yet distinctly different. Personally I much prefer the cleaner dial layout of the 5905 while the 5960 size fits my smaller wrist better. Decision decisions!

Independents: Had one of mine serviced in the UK - was OK but sounds like desertimer has a better option.

I have two and they are not very reliable in my personal experience.

Independents: It is special and very cool in my opinion.

Unusual on a bracelet - works well.
