Can be defined, for me, in these photographs. two watches, an unbelievable 94 years of history between them, and both overflowing with charm, warmth and character. I can't really explain or justify to those who don't share this obsession the time and money I spend thinking about (or drooling over) watches, but if I had to try, then this is how I'd do it. And yes, I'm aware that some of you guys may regard these watches as pretty mundane (I've seen some of the esoteric beauties out there), but for me they're just... perfect.
