Can you polish small scratches out of sapphire crystal? Perplexingly have the smallest scratch on the case and can’t remember knocking it at all.

New to my wrist as of yesterday- Datejust 41. The weight feels amazing, the mechanism is absolute butter, and the bezel wont stop sparkling. Very happy with my purchase!

New on the wrist today: portofino moon phase 40. A worthy addition to the collection after a brutal 3 months on the job, followed by my birthday and wedding anniversary 🥳

I just picked up this Pierre Bonnet for a few bucks, but I’ve never heard of them. It was good condition with box and looked pretty cool for an automatic with moon phase. Anyone know anything about this brand? Can’t really find anything about them. Thx

People from NYC, odds of finding a BB58 (preferably in black) at one of the major ADs? I have no previous relationship with tourneau, wempe, or watches of Switzerland

Just noticed the bowl is gravitated towards Rolex. Any other brands you guys like ? VC, Journe, Lange, Voutilainen ?

Has anyone had experience with the Rolex “Khanjars”? Saw one last year on a Partners wrist and thought it looked beautiful (if not very worn!). Can’t afford the 6263 Khanjars but maybe a DJ

Big wrists currently wearing a Hublot Big Bang Unico King Rose Gold (45mm) but want something new. Considering mostly within the Rolex line-up: Deepsea Sea-dweller (JC), YM 2 TT, or Sky-dweller TT. Thoughts? Images in comments.

Looking for a birth year watch - 1989. Currently have a 1976 Omega Genève, a early 2000s IWC Mark XV and a 2019 Zenith El Primero. Have very skinny arms. Budget is below 10k. What do you guys think?

Random — anyone know much about Alpina? I know a little bit but never have seen them out in the wild (probably a reason for that). Seems like an entry level piece.

How realistic is it to get on a list for a new release at an AD that you’ve never shopped at before? Not for Rolex, but other brands like Omega etc.

So this new SBGE257 is so close to perfect at 40.5mm wide, but does the 14.7mm thickness make it unwearable? Opinions, please.
