This is not the strap that belongs on the watch. The original was too short for me, and they ordered a long from Switzerland. It is 28mm wide at the lugs! This strap is 24mm and you can see that it is shimmed with small pieces of tubing. It works in a pinch. I will be getting a dark brown or black strap from RW.

It is quite large and surely makes its presence known, but it is not so heavy that I am aware of wearing it.

It was $2,495 US but I got it for $2,000. They also make a splendid rose gold version with a black dial for $7,500. That one is a limited edition.

I forgot to take a photo of the movement through the exhibition back. I'll do that tonight and post it.

I love watches RM, that is gorgeous!!!

Isn't it funny how you will spend so much for a watch and be so excited about it? Just like us girls and our rings

I can get excited over my $31 ebay watch or my $5,600 Jaeger. There is no cure, as you know. I've got it set up so they bring the watches to my wagon. I'll be in remission for awhile since I need to save up some money now....

The movement through the exhibition back...

The movement is the same size they put in a standard mens size watch, so you can see from the size of the case relative to the movement that this watch is truly massive.

RM, just out of curiosity, do you know the story behind 'the whole 9 yards'
Quote this post and reply to it Post#15 @ 04-21-03 , 10:07 AM


It was the length of tartan material used to wrap the "Great Kilt". You needed 9 yards of material to tuck around you to keep warm in cold Scotland.

I read that somewhere but had forgotten about it. I have a book that lists the origins of such depressions. It's a lead pipe cinch to find that book. Generally I try to averd cliches like the plague.
