This one, I think, could cover a lot of bases. Not however, suited for doing battle with a sword weilding cat. :lol:

I have spoken previously about the prospects of a proper gold watch as a retirement gift to myself. Too bad that goal is still a few years off. On the other hand, it is from my birth year of 1959, and these don't come along all that often, and, and, I could leave it locked away until that day arrives, and I really like it, and oh what am I thinking. :oops:

Oh my God, I'm developing an unhealthy obsession with this watch, too. I say too because I'm pretty sure you have Chris. I love the way the fixed bezel and strap combine, and I have no issue with the thread of the screws pointing in different directions, I actually like it. Please, please, please, no more photos, I can't take it. :lol: :lol:

^^^^Like you Chris, the video put me over the top as well. I thought the mid size was the perfect size, and so well proportioned. A watch of that caliber does not need to shout LOOK AT ME!!!

They have one of these at Cartier in Sydney and Saturday afternoon I am going to try it on the wrist, has to be done.
I may have to sit down whilst I do this: the risk of going weak at the knees, you know :)

The 2018 update with the bezel that flows into the bracelet is just genius. That a watch with such history can be combined with the level of sophistication that the bracelet arrangement exhibits just blows my mind. And like you Des, I think the screw heads pointing in different directions is actually better - it makes it somehow "real" rather than jewellery.

Unhealthy obsession? You bet. I've been fairly hit with a sledgehammer since it kind of "found me". \:D/
The hard part is going to be the time it takes to put SO MANY pennies together, but maybe that is for the best.

Many years before I was into watches of any kind I was offered a steel/gold Cartier by my then girlfriend who worked for them. It was special deal on one of the company's anniversaries at 80% discount as a gift to staff 😳 and too good to refuse (can't even remember if a Santos or Panthere but it was a ltd edition). I found it too small and dressy and never wore it, a few years later I sold it for a then significant amount to me but retrospectively a great deal for the purchaser
Over the last few years I find myself keep looking at the steel Santos XL and really admiring them, strange how your taste develops with time. They keep niggling at me and your pics/OP on this have not helped one bit 😀
Anyway, lovely watch and can completely see why it would get under your skin.... definitely save for the Cartier rather than the GS.👍

My passion for beautiful timepieces is obvious.

The search for the "proper" gold watch continues. Hesitation may have cost me this opportunity. :?
