@Shawnnny I agree about the caseback - it would be a perfect watch if I could see the movement.  I like the watch so much, though, I could see myself just buying it anyway.

@DG Cayse on behalf of Zen and myself, thanks for remembering those of us "back in the kitchen" who also never slept :-)  Rob and Kenny get props for standing up and doing fast and furious write-ups as well. It was a lot of fun, and knowing that people got a kick out of it makes it worth it!

@Ulysses31 so sorry, we've been having lots of trouble with Livefyre lately but new commenting system might require us to pull the site down for several hours, which we don't want to do... still looking for a solution.


Here's your original comment (stripping out how much Livefyre sucks right now as we've established that):


Ulyssees31: Both these watches are utterly gorgeous, front and back. Even the one with the three-quarter plate looks amazing. Great engraving.

Wow, I love it!  I love this one! I love everything about it! Of course, except for the price, but that's a common pain, and if I had this kind of money, I probably wouldn't balk at the price too much.  I love the lume I love the color, I love the style and I would love to wear this in my more "butch" moments - it's beautiful!

@ismiv Oh, that the money were not fantasy and we could actually give these watches to each other!  I'm very happy with how it all turned out though, this experiment, because it really did seem like this is what people would have done if given the money to do it.

One of the few watches for women I've seen that I think the diamonds really add something to the piece.  I like the ribbon thing going on there, but it is also true that if the diamond ribbon was not there, I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers.


It's the combination of that beautiful metal, the elegance of those hands, the treatment and font choice of the numerals and markers, the (I can't believe I am saying this) mother-of-pearl color and sheen, and that strap is just gorgeous I want to roll around in it wearing nothing but a satin and faux mink trimmed corset.  Lots of dimension going on here with the contrasting, yet complementary, materials.  And the kicker?  It has my favorite useless complication, the iconic Patek moon phase.  Stunning.  Were I not paying off massive student loan debt, I'd drop an NYU semester's tuition on this.

Wow! This is incredibly cool. I really like the look of it... very masculine and interesting-looking.  I just love everything about it - Part sports car, part 50s-notioned space craft - I am the kind of person who is in to sci-fi and themes that MB&F are in to as well, so I know it's not for everyone, but I love it.

Every once-in-awhile I like to pop in on a piece that is getting hammered in the comments and say out loud that I like it.  Why? Because I'm a masochist and and can't wait for a bunch of sweaty men to pile on top of me and tell me I'm an idiot? No, although that does sound a little hot sometimes.  I know that in two dimensional views of a photo, it's easy for some watch materials (especially on watches associated with comic book characters) to appear plastic or cheap.  Some of these very same watches in the three dimensions of real life end up really not looking that way at all.  I really think that if I saw this in person, and saw the effect of the lume, I'd really be down with this one.  Hey, as far as the Batman watch offerings go, this one seems the coolest (yes, the Reverso is the classiest) to me so far and actually incorporates the Bat Signal in an interesting way.  Okay, get sweaty and pile on ;-)  I'm ready!

I agree about the moodiness of the design, and I like it, despite the huge amount of diamonds.  After seeing the video, I'm even more impressed and bet this is a stunner IRL.  Thanks, Vicky, for bringing us the substantive women's mechanical watches on what is largely a men's blog :-)

@steviecans Good question! We never have, and we never will.  If we did, I could afford to pay a bunch of people to make only positive comments on our invariably positive reviews (not all our reviews lean to the positive, but we don't waste everyone's time reviewing watches we don't think anyone would like), and I would ethically have no problem deleting comments like this one.  It's not our style. http://www.ablogtowatch.com/editorial-policies/

Normally, the passing of well-known people does not affect me.  From the moment I broke this news to you yesterday, I have found myself unable to even speak about it, as it has affected me deeply.  I still live in San Francisco, and have seen him around many times over the years, often with his kids, I met him twice briefly, and always felt like he was more than a "celebrity" to me - he felt to me like a real person who was simply an extraordinary one in many ways. 

So much has been said about him and his accomplishments, in more eloquent ways than I could begin to attempt, but I know that I will personally miss him, even if he never did another movie or another stand-up set, just the fact that he is no longer among us, is to me, heartbreaking.

hmmm chicken-or-egg - They think we don't buy them so they don't make them, but if I had more to choose from, I WOULD BUY THEM and they don't need to be covered in diamonds, in fact, I'd rather they be interesting than blingy.

The case is killer!  I also happen to like the boldness of the look - like to see it on that titanium bracelet.  No comment on the price - cough, too high, cough - but I think it's masculine but refined and I can imagine the lume, which is important to me.  If I were a guy, I'd add it to my collection (at a lower price).  It just has something that strikes me right.

@Spaceguitar Loved "Persistence of Time" and saw Anthrax a few times back in the day.  Still a devoted fan of the "big four," I wrote about them in my youth for the occasional metal mag, etc.  I think one of the things that attracted me as a fifteen-year-old to thrash metal in the first place, was the level of intelligence it really required of the people who made that music and wrote those lyrics (it wasn't about girls and cars) and performed with that level of precision - Bruce Dickenson (not exactly thrash, I know, but close) was a role model for me at the time because he was into all kinds of other pursuits - I knew for a lot of these guys that they weren't all going to end up OD-ing in a pile of their own sick, that there was more ahead they would do with their lives and when I see Dan Spitz the watchmaker, that just makes my day.  Thanks for beating me to commenting on this - well said.
