    Haha, this is quite funny. When my friend TT was moving to KL for a new job and asked me for tailoring recs, I recommended Jeremy. Take care of him J, he's an old friend of two decades...

    Loren the Time Bum reviews the Millésime Merveilleux... Pre-orders due to close soon at millesimewatch.com We are now sold out of the Navy and Chocolate dials, thank you guys for your support! http://www.thetimebum.com/2018/10/millesime-merveilleux_20.html

    Nope not soldered on. The entire Merveilleux case is CNC-milled. You wouldn't believe how long and how difficult it was to nail down just the right dimensions for the lugs and crown and to get the curvaceous shape just right, true to vintage form but at the same time practical for modern wear. It's a minor miracle that this case is 100m water resistant. I agree with you that many mainstream watch brands are doing vintage-inspired watches now, but few to none do vintage dressy watches, and none with the teardrop lugs of the 1950s Vacherons and IWCs. I want to share with you guys the premier model of my new brand Millésime, the Majestique Haute Horlogerie watch featuring a flinqué enamel dial and Vaucher ultra-thin movement with solid gold micro-rotor, available in 5 dial colours. Love to hear what you all think of it! https://millesimewatch.com/products/majestique-haute-horlogerie

    I like the sound of the vintage Memovox better, it's a little more sonorous and well "old-timey"

    ^ very nice J. Looks a smidgen short though Love the powerful peak lapels and shoulders.

    The suiting thread

    True, although a navy blazer could arguably work for the latter situation and look just as good. Plus it can be worn indoors (can as in it looks right - there's of course nothing stopping you from keeping your peacoat worn indoors although that's a rather HK look). When I was in uni, my "hops from home" garment was played by a barbour. Seems to be the thing in the UK, with a gilet added when extra cold. I think the main issue I have with a peacoat versus a blazer is the former should be taken off indoors, exposing a sweater or shirt, which doesn't look quite as put together as a blazer over a sweater or shirt

    I really like your peacoat J (as well as peacoats in general)! I think part of the allure is the classic DB/military silhouette that echoes heroic uniforms of yore. My main gripe with it is that it has to be cut close, so fitted over a shirt or thin sweater. And when you go into modern overheated buildings, you have to take off the peacoat and all you're left with is the shirt or sweater underneath, unlike say a DB blazer which is meant to be worn indoors and can be worn underneath an even grander DB overcoat/greatcoat.

    I have to say, that is a gorgeous strap pairing. Brings out the dignified-ness of the vintage Rolex...
