off topic but that’s some serious shoe porn.  I WISH I could wear loafers but my feet are oddly shaped and they don’t work for me.  Still the double monks are super nice too.

Vintage Longines 13ZN chronograph. Sublime. PC credit: @alfredoparamico »Tag @vintagediver to have your watch featured here!«

This is simply sublime indeed. Looks like part of Alfredo Paramico’s collection. Beautiful vintage Longines chronograph. Just stunning. Speaks to when Longines was one of the world’s pre-eminent watch makers.

This is a beautiful vintage seamaster 300.  I’m not sure why i’ts been designated as a “military diver” - no circle T sign or arrow typical of Royal Navy/Ministry of Defense but still absolutely gorgeous.  I will have to acquire one one day.

Beautiful 6241 vintage Rolex Paul Newman Daytona - absolutely clean dial and acrylic bezel.  And Ferrari 458 in the background.  How much you wanna bet that the watch is almost the same price as the car?

Absolutely stunning 6542, predecessor to the 1675 with what looks like a pristine Bakelite bezel (hard to find due to fragility). Great shot too showcasing the chapter ring and the nice brown tropic hue of the dial.

Off topic but this highland park 50 is a scotch that I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to taste. I now number in the maybe 1000 people who’ve tasted this. I have old watches that are 40-50 years old but I’ve never tasted scotch this old and genteel before. Quite a bit of character for something so old. Still extremely vigorous and athletic. Like a 50 year old cross fitter. Amazeballs. I hope tracteur readers appreciate this review.

Off topic. I’m gonna have to learn to do this better. Mr. Rubinacci I think is a great teacher.

As much as I love my PAM 320 for its simplicity, there is something about the 233 dot indicator.  For one thing, it’s a manual wind with an 8 day power reserve - and the dot adds to the usability - although frankly if you can’t figure out a 24 hour clock on the 320 you got other issues.  Still domed sapphire crystal and manual wind for me.

Love love love the dome crystal… Makes me feel like I need to sell all my non-dome crystal PAMs for another one that is dome 😱. by lifeofawis from Instagram http://ift.tt/1icUkMG

Off-topic.  Oh yummy - John Lobb shoes.  I think Double Monks are the flavor du jour - I mean are there going to be triple monks?  But Lobb is so nice.
