    My record dealer friend in Kraków winces when I mention some of the albums I used to have...
    I bet.

    We've got two Sunrise stores here.
    It's been years since I've been out your way, but every time I am I make a pilgrimage to Ditch.

    I still have all my albums, even though I rarely listen to them. Some are probably pretty valuable.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    I’m so glad I pulled the trigger Henry.

    The closeup phone pic exaggerates the apparent size. My rule is no lug overhang and this doesn’t due to the curved pins and short lugs. The lug-to-lug is essentially 2mm more than the case. It’s more comfotable to wear than the Eterna Soleure and dial design lends itself to a big watch too - there is just something so elegant about that long seconds hand scraping around the rehaut. Some of the details are crazy. The batons taper towards their base so their reflections in the lacquer dial make it look like they are floating. The lacquer around the date window looks almost translucent at times.

    In fact, when viewed with a loupe, the finish of the dial furniture and quality of printing rivals that of my Datejust and despite not being COSC it runs damn near as well as the Rolex with less positional variation to boot. (That’s assuming my iPad app can be trusted).

    I’m so glad I didn’t let the size put me off but if 35mm is ever envogue again, this thing will look rediculous.

    I'd Schwarzkopf it daily, except I couldn't be bothered with the inevitable explanations...
