Thanks for the kind words. Indeed, it's refreshing when you encounter people who can appreciate the fine intricacies of a well-executed mechanical timepiece.

 

Here's a quick photo I took, this is my daily beater. Been with me through good, bad, East, West, and everything in between.

 

While I like Ulysse Nardin, I find some of their newer models rather unappealing and kitschy. Though I like their Toro perpetual, kitsch and all be damned wink_face.gif

I am  not sure if this absolutely amazing 10 minute short film was posted here before, it's a must see for anybody appreciating mechanical watches.

Took these photos handheld, pardon any motion blur.

yeah, i guess i looked like a poser after all. next to all those rappers with their iced out bezels. it was the only thing i had with any diamonds. diamonds are just not for a mans watch imho. unless you can pull it off. these guys make it "rain" with 100's too. i can't do that either lol. i'll stick with jay-z on this one. "i have the right watch, not the bright watch.....".

Diamonds are for ladies. I myself do not care for mens watches decorated with diamonds.

I love the rubber strap, reminds me of the Visconti Homo Sapiens which is made from lava which is hygroscopic.

oh, that is too freaking weird lol. i was just writing some notes with that fp! whats really weird is that i rarely use that pen. i like rubber straps best now that they are common place on high end watches. i have a ap le with a rubber strap but that is not daily wear for me. of course a rubber strap would probably look absurd on a patek. i suppose it is mostly for sport watches.

What! Wow, what a coincidence. (And i spelled that right, lol) Do you prefer a Montblanc or a Visconti?

i like visconti's designs better but mont blanc is usually a different level of workmanship. however i think pelikan is simply the best pen. especially like a 600 for me with a 18kt nib. that is coming from someone that owns namiki's. honestly the pelikan writes the best for me and i don't have to sit there and fill it with an eye dropper. sometimes things get to a level where they are more art than functional. the pelikan fills easily,maintenance is easy, it writes great and it starts with 3 months of non use! no other pen offers all that that i know of. plus you get all this from a $100 model to a $15,000 model. well, minus the 18k nib on the $100 model. for like $600 you have the best pen made imho. cities/places. i do swear by namiki ink though. expensive but the other stuff will break your pen. anyways i have not had great luck with the quality of italian pens(visconti). except for the homo sapiens which is why i was using it.

sorry to hijack watch thread rolleyes.gif he asked lol.

Haha, i was looking into the Montblanc 146 Silver Barley since it seems like a great pen. I love my 242 since it has the best all around wet, smooth, semi-flex nib ive used so far. Its not a brush, but with the proper amount of force you get a nice line of ink. I was thinking of trading the 242 for the "Lava pen," but i see your a little distracted at this current time. Do you have vintage pens? What Namiki pens do you have?
