She is also Italian so I have catholic guilt to work with if somehow this strategy fails. 

I mean, if the strategy fails, you can always wear the Bullhead at the homeless shelter, after she kicks you out.

Unlikely, my last resort is always jewelry.

Don't feel bad for her, like I'm spending money she wouldn't. 

I have one vice, watches, she might complain a bit but she is an enabler since 50% of my collection are gifts from her.

Oh and I'm pretty so I have that going for me..

I was just making a joke.  Pretty does help, though.

I fully understand and take no offense.

I've never done well expressing my self in written English. It always loses nuance.

Me timing black beans this morning for soup later. Chronographs are useful!

Oh, no worries, and you do great!  I was making a joke about making a joke.

I expect I'll be looking for things to time when I have my chrono. The crispness of the actuation is something I'm anxiously awaiting at my finger tips.

My initial impressions of the pictures of the new Lange sports watch were not great, while the dial is excellent, I'm OK with the dressy bracelet because it fits the brand and even the non integration of the bracelet because that has been done to death recently. 

 But the case with the pushers sticking out on one side looked awkward, like a nautilus with an ear chopped off. 

However in the video link below those pushers seem much less pronounced. At many angles I don't even notice them. 

I can't wait to see this in person! I've gotten to try many Lange watches and hope to one day have my own lange.

I think it's a very strange looking watch, myself.  I think it may just be the relatively wide bracelet. The details are all as you would expect from an ALS, but I'm not sure why I would buy this over, say, a train, which I could also afford.

The train might be slightly less awkward to wear than some AP offshores(survivor) or hublots(La Ferrari). 

I endorse this new path you are taking!

:palm: Don't, please.

I don't like the new AL&S either. It's trying to be classic and elegant while adding modern features, and I don't like how they're mixing.

Hublot deservedly gets a lot of flack, but they do some cool things, especially with materials. Their magic gold for instance is really impressive in concept and in your hands. 

The model like from them most is the "spirit of big bang". It's obviously their interpretation of a tonneau Richard mill, but I like their take on that. The fact that it is powered be the El primero doesn't hurt. One of those in magic gold is on my short list.

I would add a red leather/rubber strap from them to go with the stock.

They've just evolved shapes mimicking Richard Mille's, which OTOH is another shitty hyperexpensive tasteless manufacturer focused on tasteless new rich customers. To their recognition (Hublot's) goes being one of the first labels to make horrible stuff for the ignorant wealthy. To each one their own, I guess :ph34r:

Pretty damn right.

And listen to Philippe Dufour's opinion on how dull and disconnected to the legacy are the actual manufacturers.

Id wear it but only if the wool is part of the strap and not just a pillow. Although if not I guess I could have the wife sew it together.. 

Should offend nicely. Just like my neon pink lifting shoes.

That is definitely a shearling Bund strap.

I do think the UG wears extremely well.  I have it on a period 20x14 Spiedel lizard strap and a UG gold-plated buckle. That strap has had the better part of a century to outgas, and it don't cause me issues. The watch keeps terrible time, but that is to be expected from a Unisonic, even right after service.  There is a reason quartz became the electric standard. This would be an incredibly charming watch even if it didn't have my dad's name and social security number engraved on the back, but I'd hate to have had to have timed that 14 second burn on Apollo 13 (which was actually done with a 1675 GMT Master, not a Speedy) with it.IMG_1389.thumb.jpeg.17ef15fa2d4eb8a5d6de114799ac64c5.jpeg
