Hi All,
I am new to this forum. I am looking forward to sharing with members. My interests in horology are for the 17th & 18th verge watches as well as for modern wristwatches (mainly pilot watches).

This would pair quite nicely with the RG.

They are magnificent pieces. A bit of a stretch for daily wear, but perfect for “occasions”.

Bill, they are beautiful. I tried so hard to NOT like Doc's Zenith. But, after a long weekend admiring his timepiece, I had to have it. Finally, it came to market at a price I couldn't resist (less than the fine Doc paid, lol) and I'm now 1 of 75 that own it, in rose gold.

I know 3% of current owners. Myself, Doc. and, ahem, Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'd like to meet the rest of the true owners, not brokers. Hear their story, how they "needed" this piece.

Or, not. Maybe they're so rich, they just bought it.
But, if they don't regard they in their top 3, they don't deserve such a fabulous, beautiful time piece.

It's my centerpiece. I feel special every time I wear it. Heck, any time I wind it.

I think I've worn it twice in public. Once just because and a weekend in Pittsburgh, with Doc. All other times, it was for me.

Weird the enjoyment, from a barely useful item.

But, I do enjoy it.

I guess it's a sign of material success a perseverance to me. I guess it's a substitute for other ...

... failures?

IDK, I do know I like shiny things.

Bill, I think it's time for a Great Lakes tour. After about 5 years, it's time we met, and partied.

Good luck getting Bill out of RI, unless the wife ordains it.

I'm going to have to prove you wrong.
