Green Pontos, Gray Pontos, finally splurged and bought a gray Pontos 41mm, then a green 40mm.

Even before I truly get interested in watches I saw a Maurice LaCroix display at a local jeweler and decided that if I was ever to spend more than a few hundred bucks on a watch I’d look at ML first. A couple of months ago I splurged and bought a 41mm Gray Pontos. I love it, but at first I regretted spending that much on one watch and briefly tried to sell it. Fortunately no one made an offer, so I withdrew it from sale and wore it a couple of more times. The more I wear it, the more I like it, so I decided to get a 40mm green Pontos. Here they are - if you look closely you’ll see the green one isn’t actually on two different color straps, I just set a black over one side of the brown for comparison.

ML should make a LE Aviator watch for Easter and call it the Pontos Pilot.

I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

I never know what to say in response to “nice watch.” The obvious thing to say is “thank you,” but I didn’t design or make it, so that seems somehow presumptuous. So what I end up saying is, “I never know what to say in response to ‘nice watch.’ The obvious thing to say is ‘thank you,’ but I didn’t design or make it, so that seems somehow presumptuous.”

Slip? I don’t wear a slip! Oh, um, I mean that’s a Kleenex.

Those are nice. Especially the green one you have laid out on somebodies slip.
I think the brown strap is the way to go.

Love them both. That green one is just ducky. Just purchased the black dial pontos today.

Which begs another question. The kleenex,in the bathroom, with un-shod feet. Plans after watch photography?

It's generally an observation regarding your good taste. Just take the damned compliment! :dssd:
I've been tempted myself several times by the gray.
