I live about 1.5 miles due east (around 06:30 on your sub)
that is beautiful. 2975? 2948?(my guess)
I have a 2975(Big Logo)I got from Dennis (2tone). I love it.(thanks Dennis)
I know the feeling about small after the Speedmasters.
Again on the wrist or still in the box
On the wrist
I HATE YOU.
btw - i get what you're saying about this watch feeling a little small on your wrist. you should sell it to me to assuage your mind
…rounded to the nearest score (or, hundred), just how many nice vintage watches would you say you have?
Waiting for Pope Francis to begin mass in St. Peter's Square.
Is it bad to focus on my watch and not the church? Oh well, I was headed you-know-where in a hand basket anyway for coveting my neighbor's Calatrava...
2876, I think! Yes, never thought I would say that... Damn those Speedies!
Haha.. Make me an offer I can't refuse!! You know this completely original and near nos?! Edit: just joking, I don't think this one's for sale
Don´t worry, I went through that too. I started collecting dress watches and after a few years got hooked on the large 70´s models, ie,Ploprof, Flightmaster, Anakin,etc.
The dress watches all felt really small then too and I didn´t wear them for years. I´m so happy now that I didn´t fall into the mistake of selling any of them off as I have now come full circle and have had a collecting revival on the sub 36mm dress watches. I have no problem switching between a 45mm or so Ploprof and a 35mm Constellation. It just depends on the state of mind and/or the clothes.
That's a great piece of advice. I think it's easy to fall in to that trap of liking the larger watches... Feel substantial on the wrist etc.. I'm lucky in that I have average wrists.. Neither big nor really small, so I can enjoy at least up to 42-44" without feeling drowned! I also think bracelets can add a whole new feel to a smaller cases watch..
Hey, I ain't Don Corelone. You'd kick yourself in the tukhus if you let that beauty go because it's practically irreplaceable.
This one awaiting in the post this morning following a full service.
