Great pictures Greg. I have a couple of them (plain and engraved bezel) safely tucked away, so no pictures. I like your wrist shot. Did you notice, though, that three of the watches in the wrist shot show 1:50 and one shows 10:10. Haha - looks like at least one of them may need a servicing. :lol:

The Marquis is always a favorite! I might have 1 or 2 somewhere.

Frankly, I went looking for them Friday to take a new familly photo, but I can't find my black-dialed one and it's driving me a bit nutty. I imagine it's stashed in some nook and cranny, briefcase, suitcase, car pocket... hopefully. A seemingly nice TT example sold over the weekend FAR too cheap... and I got itchy for another, but refrained. :lol:

Rick - you should keep them in watch folders.

Bob, I do, generally, but because I like to wear my Marquis' ... it can cause "issues" sometimes. :lol: I remember wearing it one day in the fall and removing it to do something around the house/car... but I forget if I ever put it back on. My FEAR is that I'll find it this spring... somewhere outside in the lawn. YIKES! ;) Oh well, the dial is not original and I have a dozen or so others to choose from. MY GUESS is that it is in a drawer in our kitchen or basement... as it's clearly not at the bank as I ripped apart every watch folder there Friday evening.

(Fred will likely be happy to hear that I've misplaced that black-dialed Marquis. :lol: )

Hopefully, Rick, your wife isn't like mine or, I might not see it for a very long time.

Then, when I finally ask her if she has seen it, she will say something like, "Oh, yeah, I was wondering when you would ask me for it....thought you would have missed it by now." :roll:
