Did you buy the one advertised here? It's a beauty and I was sorely tempted but I'm desperately trying not to buy any more watches, at least until I have pared down my collection to a level where I am actually wearing all of them on a semi-regular basis.

Err, hmm, cough. Yes; in a moment of weakness / madness. :oops: :silent:

Actually got the very watch pictured from Gary's (gaf1958) SOTC 2014 thread that was previously and more recently owned by atnits.

Its a watch I've always liked for the clarity of the design and yellow accents; sort of classic fleiger, very similar to the current Fortis Fleiger Professional Chronograph.

Arguably its too small for me @ 38/39mm BUT being c. 25years old, its verging towards vintage and they were all smaller then. Plus its got a solid 7750 inside so is quite tall that IMHO bolsters the wrist presence.

It will be my first watch from a mainstream Swiss Manufacturer. :thumbup:

Just need to get my Bloxworth Panda sold to balance the collection. :)

^^^ It's a great watch. I think you will quickly adjust to the size.

That's what I'm banking on. :thumbup:

Plus it will add a variety into my collection; got to thinking it boring to have one's watches all the same (more or less) size. :silent:

Congrats Guy I really like the look of that Oris Chrono. I saw it in sales corner and had a good think about it, I liked the vintage feel and yellow hands. Of course having no will power I've subsequently bought something else.

Now onto the aviators, and probably a pipe dream but I think that this would probably suffice! :lol:

Pipe dream? What happened to the IWC Big Pilot?

Must say its rather smart though Nick. :thumbup:

Guy
Now sit down when I say this Guy but the Big Pilot may just be too big!!!!!! In fact it was on a trip looking at the BP that resulted in the Muhle Glashutte purchase.

As I am getting older, the sizes of the watches tends to be getting a touch smaller.

Something arrived today which shows that 44mm is just about my sweet spot. :lol:

I have always wanted a vintage 3 hander Patek Philippe Calatrava 33mm hand wound in 9/18ct gold not to everyone's taste as far to small for most but to me an ultimate dress watch.
Looked at a few but the price is far beyond me a decent used model is around 10k and servicing about 2k, so just a dream.

So I have just bought something that is very near equal to that dream.

Next week I take delivery of a 9ct gold Rolex hand wound 33mm size simple 3 hander, it is dated to 1962 and it is to me a dream dress watch.

Photos to follow on Tuesday as I say not to everyone's taste but it is mine.
