This thread is killing me. I am like a kid in a sweet shop. One thing that really strikes me about PP (apart from their horological brilliance) is the fact that I would love to have almost any one of their watches. With Rolex, I like their sports watches but that is about it and I have no current plans to extend beyond my Sea-Dweller; I like Zenith Captain Moonphase but not much else; I have an IWC Pilot Chrono and there are a few other IWCs I would like as their styling fits my Teutonic build. However when it comes to PP, there are few I would not adore - the 5960P - oh my God. The Nautilus? On a stainless steel strap? Lovely? On rubber? Worth a try. Chronograph? Maybe a bit busy on screen but it works in the flesh. Aquanaut, 5205Gs and then when we get into the serious complications.... It just never ends.

In order to avoid any silliness on my part, I have just gone and paid my self-assessment tax bill early, in order to empty my account. PP is a dream, and is a good few years off after school fees and the like. However, threads like this make me remember why I want one so much.

Anders, thanks for starting this thread! Is there a Danish equivalent of javla Svena? (I got taught this by friends from Skane when drunk - hope it isn't too rude!)

Incoming, today - the fruit of my three-month, self-study crash course in the "Black Arts of Self-Enablement."

Will post a thread when I have the photographic proof.

WooHoo, as they say!

I'm making a wild guess and gonna say 5960 because I think Jim asked about the chrono hand a few times.

I'm kinda pressed for time so I'll have to make a more thorough thread of pics and impressions when I can. Sorry for the teaser - wasn't my intention. Oops...

So here is my new, Geneva-fresh 5146G. I spent about a month deciding on the model, taking on all comers, then another month settling on the WG/Slate version. And then, after being sure this was the one for me, honestly, I spent 3 weeks trying to talk myself out it of all together... I didn't do very well on that last part, LOL.

Moments like now remind me how I totally underestimated the quiet joy/pleasure/contentment to be had just through owning a nice watch. As I'm sure you all understand, today I'm feeling fortunate...

More pics will follow but all I can say is that the last time I was this attracted to a face, I married her!
