Dinner at Piccola Venezia last night.

 

Finished the evening at Astoria Park, ill-equipped, no cigar. Funny how things change, lots of 20 somethings smoking h00ka (perfectly legal I don’t know why it was automatically edited) on the waterfront.

Love my S&G Omega Aqua Terra

I have an Aqua Terra too, but an earlier version (2007 model). Now that I no longer have a desk job, I find it harder to find an opportunity to wear it.

The watch keeps time to about 10 seconds per day.  Not bad even by today’s standards for a non-chronometer mechanical watch. My company buys and sells vintage watches, but we also service them to make sure they function properly.

So many nice watches posted. There is some debate on whether it's an actual vintage or not, maybe a 'Frankenwatch'. Either way, I purchased because I enjoy all things Habanos related that has a logo.

Yes.  I've seen a number of these 'vintage' watches available at the flea market in Havana.

Based in the USA.  It wasn't my intent to advertise but you can see my vintage watches at timeplex.com and farfo.com

The IWC PA is such a beautiful and elegant watch :ok: I was actually contemplating the PA when purchasing my BP, but vent with the BP in the end for the same reason you mention - it being a bit more 'casual' than the PA (and the fact that my large wrists actually can carry the size of the BP :rolleyes:).

But the PA just oozes elegance..........so beautiful :wub:
