That's a purdy one, you damned old goat.

A good looking backside is no guarantee of anything else - but it's still a work of art - even on a watch ...

Indeed - Wing fell in with the JV team of watch retailing and suffered (in my opinion) a loss of credibility as a watch designer and stylist ... Glad to see his prior efforts still evoke passion - lost to a bad crowd - like in Jr HS

Very well said, Mikie. It's a small tragedy -- but still a tragedy nonetheless -- that the Wingster did fall in with the high-tonnage/max-girth gangs these days, for the most part, but he does provide a tiny bone to those who like their smaller pieces; he now offers you a choice of 45mm or 50mm sizes...now, if he'd just start doing some smaller stuff -- say, 40mm -- for us fans of the classic sizes & dimensions. He does have a couple of really good designs out there, such as the "Antigravity" (https://www.aragonwatch.com/ANTIGRAVITY_s/428.htm), which I have come soooo close to buying, but can't make up my mind as to which color to get, because they ALL look bad-arsed. The other one, the "Evo," which is short for "Evolution," (https://www.aragonwatch.com/DIVEMAST...NH35_s/432.htm), I did get, and was one of the lucky brassards who got one of the dark yellow dialed, 45mm versions, which is fortunate for me, as they were all gone within a week of the release.

That being said, I'm probably going to sell the Evo because, despite its smaller size, it's STILL a BIG hunk of top-heavy stainless on your arm, and you can never forget that it's there, as you can with so many other [smaller & lighter] watches... I'd probably make all my money back -- and maybe even score a small profit -- if I sold it, but we'll just have to see.

Anyhow, you're absolutely right: finding these older, much smaller pieces really does trip the old passion trigger, so that's what I'm sticking to. I miss Android terribly. I dislike Aragon completely. Still, if I could just find someone who would trade his Antigravity for my Evo, I'd be in piggy heaven...and if my aunt had a dick, she'd be my uncle, right?

It looks like a great big beefer, however, it must be nice and light being made of titanium.

I like that, a lot. Nice score sky-guy.

Well, Mort you got yourself another lovely watch, indeed.

I like the hue of the dial quite a bit.

Enjoy wearing your latest time-machine, Mort.

That hue is quite a bit reminiscent of the one found in my beautiful EL "Long Beach," don't you think, James?

Indeed, the two hues come close. At least depending on the screen one uses to look at them.

On my Surface tablet they are further off than on my PC's monitor, however.

But you're on the right track, Mort, I guess.
