To buy a single 'grown ups' watch in my 40th year .to add to the collection... Pipe and slippers are on order.

Picked this 5270 in white gold up last Friday , for me the new profile works much better than the outgoing 5970 and the new in house movement is superb !!!!

Mike even set the time and date for me

The 5270 is a stunning piece.

And like another member has already mentioned 40 is the new 20.

So that means, seeing that I am in my 50's that must mean the new 30's!!! LOL

Regards

Tony

Kidding, of course. Pretty awesome all around--like that traditional/retro dial layout & flared fancy lugs--keep that winder plugged in!
Congrats & look forward to the group shot when you & M. Derrick next meet up.
All the best,
T.
