When I was 32 decided was time for a “proper” watch. After spending an inordinate amount of time surveying the watch field looking at several watchbrands and styles ended up coming back many times to this watch. It checked all the boxes...and still does. Ive added several since then but still have this one. Rrp in 2002 was a princely sum of $1750 and I got a nice deal from Topper Jewelers from a recommendation.
