Great watch. I owned one back around 2008 or so. Still regret selling it. If you have a chance to pick one up you will not be sorry.

This is a very attractive watch. I am unfamiliar with the brand, price, etc., but I'm sure it would go well with black tie, and wear well with the many balls and gallery openings that I know you attend!
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.
