Can anyone identify...

...this clock that I bought at Restoration Hardware in the mid-1990's. It is quartz and is made of metal. Thanks in advance @OscarKlosoff .

Aurelian commented on My first year of watch collecting. ·

I like the variety. I don't see a vintage gold watch (the Vario is cool, but it doesn't count.) You need something that you can wear to a wedding or a funeral.

Aurelian commented on Getting the first ever luxury watch back after thinking it was lost ·

I recently found two watches packed away in a box. Neither are as pretty as that.

Aurelian commented on Panerai California Dials and the Rolex Connection ·

This one is one of your "Greatest Hits."

I have previously expressed some distain for these dials.  But, to have an opinion is to have to defend that opinion. It is inarguable that, especially without a date, these dials are among the most legible produced. They perform the core function of a dial. I am coming around.

Aurelian commented on What do you choose first, shirt/outfit or watch? ·

I match straps to belts and shoes during the work week. I wear a tie most days. Occasionally, I will match a tie to a dial or strap. The suit or slacks dictate the shoes.  The shoes dictate the watch. So, I guess clothes come first.

Aurelian commented on Watch brands Lost to History, and Nostalgia ·

The first one is a surprisingly good movie.

Aurelian commented on Watch brands Lost to History, and Nostalgia ·

I have read about a 100 jewel Waltham from the 1960's that took it to an extreme.  Jewel count, at least for imported watches, was largely a function of tariff policy.  44 jewels would have been at the high end in any era.  It is high now.

32-34mm, the classic men's size.
