Got a nice self assessment refund, it’s my 30th in June and got a big pay bump / new job so going to treat myself.

Thinking Octo Finissimo or the midsize Santos, does anyone know where in London that carries them both? Or I guess Bulgari & Cartier boutiques are quite close to each other.

Harrods and Selfridges have Cartier and bulgari boutiques. Watches of Switzerland might have them both too.

Check them all out and make a day of it. Nice shopping trip coming up.

Congrats on the new job. Cool

Great that you can walk into a shop and buy one on the day as well. No gobbling required.

Sales assistants will kiss your arse instead of the other way round, how it should be.
Ask for a glass of champagne and enjoy the experience.

Octofinissimo movement is quite a marvel and the watch is surprisingly thin. Which reference are you thinking of?

Both boutiques are within an arms reach of each other

Nay. Better watches around for that coin (or just a bit more) imo.

Interesting construction but a quartz movement makes it a nay for me

Been looking at the titanium model; pretty sure it will be too big for me but reviews say it wears really well despite the size.

Any one got a Vacheron Overseas, any thoughts on them? The AD just got in touch with me to tell me the prices will go up in June.

They don’t seem to hold as well as others in that price range so unsure if I’d get a discount.
