Horological Meandering: There's a certain association when a guy wears a big watch with a small movement...

... Other than that, I have to fully agree with Respo: no use applying logic or being systematic. Just show me the watch and I'll tell you whether it's too big or not. Speaking for myself, that is. Collecting high mech watches is an inherently illogical hobby: it's about craftsmanship and precision

Horological Meandering: No need to shout, Thomas...

... remember, it was you who rekindled this discussion not me. Couple of small things that might sound like nitpicking but since you were picking apart my words with gusto, I feel the need to address them. Firstly, "I can't believe you wrote that" didn't mean to infer you were lying, they were only

Horological Meandering: That last judgment is a very dubious one, Thomas, ...

... and I wonder what you base it on. The way I value others' opinions is based on their perceived authority in the matter. Since I acknowledge you as an authority on haute horology, I'd say I value your opinions higher than mine. Mind you, valuing your opinions highly is not the same as agreeing wi

Officine Panerai: The 190 is still WAY my favourite Panerai...

... although the 323 looks like a very seductive successor! Almost as clean in looks despite having an extra GMT hand plus a very unobtrusive date window (without the silly magnifying glass). I'm waiting for the side-by-side post on those two! Jos.

Horological Meandering: New attempt, Aaron...

... you're right, my bad. I overlooked the modular chrono part of your question. Another interesting candidate is the JLC Duometer in its various guises. Again I'm not sure here, especially since we all know the Duometer started its production life as a chronograph. But the new Duometer leads me to

Horological Meandering: An example of this probably would be...

... the Jaquet movement used by Graham in the Foudroyante and Lightning models; by GP in the Scuderia Ferrari; and later also by Panerai in the PAM246. If I'm not mistaken all of these watches share versions of the same movement, based on a V7750 to which were added both a rattrapante and foudroyant
