Indeed. If only money were no object. An LF sub-collection would be quite something.
Their watches are exquisite!

Love the second watch (The pebble), oh for a budget commensurate with LF pricing. I have been told there's a very nice and similar design 'alternative' to this watch thats a more real life price but Im struggling to find it and my watchie mate couldn't remember what it was 🙄

I like that model better on that strap than a bracket…
I think.

Me too :thumbup:
...which goes against one of Downers rules of "always buy on a bracelet"!

I think that one of my ADs might well have one in stock
...iirc, the last time I was there a few weeks back I think I spotted one in a cabinet - could be dangerous!

I can heartily recommend :D

I bought on bracelet, as is custom. I almost felt affronted/personally attacked when it arrived without QR pins and quick adjust; CW has me spoiled :lol:

It spends a lot of time on a black/yellow Barton elite silicone, but I’ve always wanted to try the OEM rubber. Try one on, it wears beautifully and is just a good looking watch!

Downers Rules still apply, assuming you really want to own the bracelet. This is such a sporty model, and looks so right on the OEM rubber, one could get along quite nicely, IMO, just as is. It’s a completely different animal from the original moon watch, which might be used in dressier situations. A couple pieces of black electrical tape may be needed on this strap if attending the Queens upcoming birthday. :lol:

I always expected if I were to buy a rectangular watch it would be a Reverso. Then this appears. Good golly.
