Very, very cool watch! What is the movement on that bad boy? Is it a Valgrange? I really like the modern, yet clean and simple dial layout. Well done.

WOW!!!!! Man, when you get as grail, you get a GRAIL!!!!!

That is BEAUTIFUL! I think you did REAL good with that one. You should purge some of your collection. You know, to someone that lives in the area. ;)

Think how sad all you other watches will be now that you have that baby!

Congrats Eric. I know you have to be thrilled. Thanks for sharing that with everyone.

Now that's what I'm talking about.



When you see something with a nice, easy to read dial, with style.



You just know it's a fine timepiece.

I'm moving toward the more sensible sized watches (40mm to 47mm, max) myself.

Not being snobby but most wealthy (not rich) people I've met lately don't wear the big clownish watches.

They stick with a classic style brand, size and design.

Nice pick, I love it. I've put that one on my list.
