Well OK,  it's April and I have worn 93 different vintage watches over the last 3 months (and a couple days), I will try to work in some more throughout the month. Thanks for letting me show them off.

Today's watch is one I did not choose myself, it's not my usual style. I have found several things I don't like about it. It seems a bit too dress oriented for casual wear, it's a bit too big at 45mm, and I usually don't go for rose gold. On the other hand, it's really is comfortable, has a cool case, and is beautiful. I don't usually post this many pictures but yesterdays photo session went well and I think I captured some nice images. The Bulova 97A109.

It's a beautiful, I like everything you mentioned except would prefer it at a minimum of 46mm. LOL

LOL, Thanks Darius, I actually don't mind 45mm...this one just wears even bigger since there is no bezel. It's growing on me ...so to speak. 

Your Invicta is awesome too, digging the unique hands, dial and the cool shade of blue. These Limited Editions are sweet!!

Whoa, those two are extraordinary Gary, and Darius !!! Are you guys seeing them?! cheers

Have to congratulate you on the new Bulova Gary, and also say thank YOU for allowing us to see
them like this for the last few months ! Very Happy

Whoever picked this out for you has some terrific taste honestly. It really is beautiful, and looks
like the design bridges that gap between vintage classic, and modern day marvel. You've got that
super refined case, and even lugs, and then the case goes back, and forth between traditional, and
cutting edge. It's pretty amazing !!! The three dimensional magic with the dial, the textures, as well
as markers are all stunning. Even the hands are unlike anything out there ! They seem traditional
at first glance, but then have this subtle, and fantastic curve with them.

You have to hand it to Bulova. They know how to build a watch ! The design, decoration, and attention
to detail, like with the open heart, and even movement is remarkable ! ..So are your pics !!! Too good sir !

A huge congratulations Gary !!! bounce


In Monster mode here today...
