BTW - What type of winder is that? I have 3 of the same cheap-o dual vertical dual winders and was looking for a new design that might be able to accomodate 6 or 8 at once horizontally.
I bought the winder off of Amazon a few years back cant remember the brand. its a dual quad winder that winds 8 watches and it has a two drawer storage to hold another 8 watches.

You picked up a $5600 watch to keep your $7700 watch nice? So where exactly did you find this money tree of yours?

the 5600 dollar watch was picked up to keep my 7700 dollar nice because the 7700 one is much harder to replace if i fvck it up (only 500 made in J series vs 5000 made of the other one). Also, the 7700 dollar watch now retails for 9900, so it'd cost me even more to replace it. Lastly the 7700 one was my first panerai, so I'd like to keep it forever.

And I found this money tree called my job...also i recently sold 2 of my pieces, rolex gmtcii and my anonimo cronoscopio, which were both posted a few pages back.

Anyone interested in buying an OEM Panerai rubber strap and clasp....=)
I really never understood why Pams are so expensive. I just don't see it. To each their own of course but... $900 for a rubber strap just reinforces my opinion that they are nichy and waaaay overpriced because of it.

Got the Hamilton Pilot and I really dig it. Certainly not the most sophisticated piece in terms of mechanics, but it's exactly the look I was searching for.

it was not 900 for JUST the rubber strap, the strap and clasp...lol. Actually maybe it was around 850 or so

But I hear ya, it's a rip off. I was going to buy an AP ROO Safari, but am afraid I won't like it in a few years.

That's not an LV, the green one is the LV (Look at my pictures, I have one).

LV has maxi dial (incl. bigger hands) and green bezel. His is a blue 16613.

Also have a tiny ass wrist. I wear the strap big enough to have some play so it fits more like a bracelet and less like the traditional non-moving watch fit.
