Well i blame it on Steve!! We all do...
But also after seeing great DayDates on the last 2 Passion events and owning a couple of Datejust over the years.. the DayDate started to stick on me. A couple of times i was at the point of buying on or mailing a seller on VRF over the last year. My heart was stolen by a whitegold Stella (green) about 2 years ago. But they have become so expansive i past on them. I kept looking.
My favorite is a whitegold blackdial one. But hey so rare to find and also has become so expansive these days. So a loose watch.. came to mind. Gold... Gold ?? Neaayyyhhhh not for me. I passed that phase about 6 years ago with some IWC and Patek.
But you never to old to learn LOL. I kept looking. But a i wanted something special. Something cool.
And what strap would be best for it?
Well i found my combination. After Steve showing them.. the widebody was one i really liked. So cool. Less dress watch.. more coolness. But also i am not such a classic strap guy.. and just when i bought the watch.. i visited Philipp and there it was. I am sure most of you will dislike it. I love it!
Here we go...
The widebody are kind of rare versions. Very cool and i love the grey dial version. As it gives the watch a lof of warmth. Also the color of the grey changes with the angle of light from dark to warm light grey. As a designer i use warm grey as colour often. Like those combinations.
I will do a lifestyle shot / package with this one soon. To show yopu a bit of the feeling i like with it... more to come.
