"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

* to answer the messages - this is a JLC Reverso 8 Day Grande Date that is no longer made. The movement is JLC in-house & used by other brands such as Panerai etc. The reverse is a crystal display.

Many messages about other options besides a Rolex DateJust.
* The Omega Co-Axial line is very underrated, equally smart with bracelet, leather band or NATO strap
Why? Strangely I have received a few messages about my thoughts on the Milgauss.
FWIW I like it, but would have had it by now if they had omitted all the polished surfaces as “tool” watches should not be shiny.
If it was I, sand blast all the shiny parts & swap out the bracelet for a NATO in dark green.
Very much under rated which is a good thing.
Want a vintage look with the modernity convenience such as water proof & shock resistance? Then the Glashutte Senator 60s is for you!
THIS - why would you bother with the current abominations when the above was the pinnacle in FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION.. Not BAD FORM FOLLOWS BLING
Now this is a POCKET WATCH - modern & not a costume
The 1805 Imperial Phantom pocket watch pays homage to the unmistakable style of the first French empire. A true Napoleonic-inspired piece, the watch draws from relics of past centuries, modernized with an analog alarm and snake coil chain. Offered with a desk stand and two choices of chain clasps, this horological beauty establishes an iconic demeanor fit for modern times.
