Agree with Cron - all great watches and beautifully presented.

(But I have to say that the Patek is bound to be just as beautiful inside as it is outside).

Vince, what sort of accuracy do you get over a week? My own mechanical watch used to be a minute slow over four months but after using a Macbook Air for two hours (where the speakers are under the keys I believe) it became fast by one minute a week. I took it to an independent but highly regarded watchmaker who tried to demagnetise it but the watch ended up fast by two minutes a week! I'll have to save up to send it to the watch company who made it. (Mind you, it's forty years old so perhaps the materials were less anti-magnetic then).

It's very accurate, but I don't wear it every day, so I haven't really tested it over a week or two week long period. I usually wear a different watch every day -- everything from a WWI Elgin, to a Speedmaster, some Accutrons, and the Patek. The nice thing about the Patek is that it's not too large for my skinny wrists!

That Milgauss is a beauty. So much cooler than the modern version.
