Had to make a quick stop on Madison and check out a prototype
of the new JLC Polaris no date, the simplest version of the new line. Personally if I can and do grab one it would be the date model with vanilla lime. $1k more for a date window, dang!

Ran into Chanel because I can. Yellow gold version of Monsieur Channel with beautiful silver/gold dial. The movement is a jaw dropper.

The JLC is stunning. However, I as well like the looks of the date version more. Odd by my standards of preferring watches without a date window, but that's the way it is in this case.

The Chanel, on the other hand... The movement is lovely, but the rest of the watch has something slightly ghey about it. Not like it's ghey as such, it's just very lightly seasoned with a pinch of gheyness.

Can you imagine dropping that Chanel? Whole thing would shatter into a zillion bits!

One has to consider the source, Chanel is very popular with transitioning kind of people

Here's the JLC w/date.

I don't think it's Wagnerianly ghey - some slight refinements to the numerals, hands and the frame around the hour display window would de-ghey it nicely. When I think of the most ghey of watches, like anything by Richard Mille or any Hublot Ghey Bang, this watch - oddly enough - seems even somewhat civilized.
