Horological Meandering: OK… I'm interpreting the question as which would you chose to own for this purpose, not: which is the best dress watch. So…

For me, the LUC, hands down. Why? It is clearly the most versatile of the three, and at my age and station I need that versatility. Then, the JLC, and finally the Patek. HOWEVER… The Patek is clearly the most "perfect" statement pictured. It is just freaking elegance, personified. Not that the JLC i

Seiko: Were it not there, would you be asking if we really need that "calendar page?" I feel the two rather "balance" one another out. What say you to that?

So many ways to look at these elements. Of course I understand your wish for greater simplicity. But on spring drive models I'd posit that since there is nothing going tick tock inside, one may be lulled into a false sense of security—as if the movement were quartz (though obviously the seconds hand

Seiko: Hearty congratulations! I have a lovely chronometer—not a Seiko—that sports a black, imitation teak deck dial, and I find I'm tiring of the effect. But this! And I love the crazy-green

rotor! Another lucky fellow commented that the dial's effect is like that of a lacquered floor—and indeed it looks like that in his photo. Well… two lucky guys! Have a fine day checking out the time! BTW, What time is it??? FH

Omega: This watch makes me jealous, though I'd have called myself a "Pro" guy. But that may be only because I've never had this case on my wrist.

I'm immediately attracted to this piece. A "local" Omega AD has a large selection of pre-owned models. I'll hope one comes up there. Thanks for posting! FH

Omega: The subtle stamping of the dial is really a winner in my book, Dr.

I'm not as impressed by the bridges in back—at first thought them lovely, then… uh… too many different curves? Oh well, in the metal they are probably entrancing. A beautiful watch. Very tempting. Many thanks for calling our attention to this! FH

Photography: Caz, you are one of our most diverse and interesting mods. These photos are stunning.

We had a lovely Barred Owl in our neighborhood trees this summer early on. He was most vocal, hooting his "Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you'all?" at all hours—especially mid-afternoon. I had him in the binocs several times, but my iPhone pics looked as bad or worse than yours. Your 600mm really

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Your inner voices are the most important, certainly. I completely understand. I never wear my favorite moon phase watch for exactly the same reason. I "had" to

have itm and have it I did. But do I wear it??? So good for you. There are, after all, many Reversos in the sea. FH
