    I was posting about being true to the vintage style, which that Yema isn't really with all the unnecessary details added and altered (size not being at issue here). We broadly agree on the vintage style and ownership points and might have different definitions of what constitutes modern size but I'm not here to try to convince you of anything.

    I’d really have to see the two side by side to truly understand your points, I think. Because on its own, I just see an attractive and quirky yachttimer.

    Back to fauxtina watches: why do we accept distressed leather?
    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    I can accept fauxtina watch like pam 372 but I can't accept the pre "damaged" watch like the laco or the other brand that says damaged in Italy....
