    Did you sell it to yourself so you can give it to a certain good looking blonde you've been known to hang out with? :D

    Sweet.
    Blue hands? I've said it before, having blue steel hands doubles the cool factor of any watch.

    Today, JLC sector dial Master Geographic with a custom strap
    thanks. Agree completely on the blue hands (FPJ comes to mind). BTW, same strap maker as on the Omega.

    I love the simplicity and clean dial of this $425 QUARTZ piece from Corniche. It’s on a custom strap which cost half as much as the watch!

    The company is based in the south of France, in St. Jean Cap Ferrat. The watch is called the Prestige 18, after the Concours d'Elegance which is held there. I just thought it looked cool!

    Were you really told "a couple of months" for service on your 5396? It took Patek over 6months to get my 5164A back to me last year!!

    I ordered it through my AD in Lausanne. Annual calendars are easy to get, only 3 months waiting list. For 5172G I have to wait about 1 year, and for 5711 it would be 7-10 years!!

    Honestly, I am not a fan. I think it is too cumbersome, comical, and hard to read. That said, I'm not the target demographic for such a piece. It's a little too G-Shock for me.
