Cartier: I can honestly say, the first platinum watch that has stopped me in my tracks. Wow!

It's everything that's already been said: understated, refined, the brushed sides are killer… This is one for the grail file. MANY thanks for posting! One question, though. If platinum, though thin it must have some heft, yes? In that case (pardon the pun)… perfection! FH

Horological Meandering: Many thanks for your response, TTICM. You may be right on the money, but...

Here's a detail from a photo I couldn't seem to bring up yesterday, though I had found it on the 'net. This was offered by one robskicks on the watchuseek forum (many thaks, rob!), and one Tommywine edited his own guess of a Santos to be a Panthere (below). (Thanks for your work, Tommy!) The line wa

Horological Meandering: Does anyone here know what watch Vin wore?

Omega: Welcome to the club-of-(as you know already)-many!

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Dear Nico, Once again we are indebted to you...

..for such a complete overview of these two new pieces. One thing surprises me—that no one (unless I have missed a comment) has mentioned the sportiness of this new MC Date. For me, who rarely has an opportunity to wear formal watches anymore, this is the most compelling change. Though still elegant

Automotive: HAhahahahah… terrific! Yep. There you are. Of course...

in today's China, this footage would be included in your file which could be accessed with your real name and x-number. Or… who knows? Perhaps with "Dr. No," as well! Many thanks for the peek into your past. On another note, which lovely vintage Omega are you wearing today?

Automotive: Wonderful photo...

Yes, Mario and A.J. leapt off the page for me, but I needed help with the other two. You know… in the 50s/60s when I was a boy, each summer my family would drive eastward from SE Kansas to Rochester, NY to visit my mother's Sicilian family, passing through Indianapolis on the way. I used to look for
