Shoes and Watches

Inspired by JTodd and Alex, lets post some shoe themed watch photos.

All shoes are welcome, but in honor of Alex, post shoes of any color besides black if possible.

I'll start, but my shoes are simple and from DSW, I guess they may be considered "entry level" devil

Contrast Alex's desk with a watchmaker's workbench.....

and you'll scratch your head at how each can work for the same company!! ;-)



Alex, how on earth do they allow you to put your feet up on the desk...

...all the while wearing an MB&F and to make it even worse - MB & F screensaver??? :-) 

I must say VC is really tolerant.

I had to change screens as the one I currently have shows a watch which has yet to be released :-)

Hello from a new forumer who struggled quite a bit with his smartphone to catch a Contemporaine 86180 with a shoe in the background smiley

I will try to send better pics soon!


All the best,

The result was worth the effort and struggle! :-)

Hi Nicholas, welcome to THL!

I like the shoes!  

I also love how the dial of your watch can change colors depending on the lighting and reflections, it looks like a light salmon color in your I said, I believe the struggle was worth it!

Best Regards, Dan

Dear Alex and Dan,

Thank you for your kind words of welcome.

One of the things I like the most about this "silvered opaline" dial are the varying shades of colour it offers.

Here's another attempt with a pair of suede shoes.


All the best,




Well, this is embarrassing...

I have the opposite probelm from Alex.  I am wearing a VC, but not shoes.  I work from home sometimes and this week is one of those times.  It is more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit and I have not been wearing shoes.  However, with my casual look, I have worn mostly my Overseas Dual Time in Stainless, although I am not ashamed to admit that today I wore my Patrimony Automatic w/Date in White Gold with a pair of Khaki shorts and a black Harley Davidson T-Shirt.  Hey, the crocodile strap matches the TShirt.  Blasphemy, maybe - but I love this watch.

And the picture!

I am underdressed for this watch - but am sparing you my shoeless feet.

And the picture!

Thanks for the picture...sans feet! :-) (nt)

the T shirt looks good :-)

You deserve a better picture...

after the effort the others put into getting a good shot.  So, here is another (still sans feet, because... just... eww...).

While the watch surely still outclasses the ensemble, the pairing with the OS in Stainless is certainly a little more apropos.  This is not a great pictire of the watch, but I know Alex is dying to see the whole TShurt.  I wonder if the foiks on the other end of those conference calls knew I was wearing this (although with Patrimony) yesterday?

You deserve a better picture...

Hi Fellow Loungers, This is my favourite kind of thread! Thanks Dan for kicking off this week's postings! I am a fan of all things vintage. Here is my Vacheron Constantin 6232 perfectly chronologically matched with my latest restoration project. They are a lovely pair of brand new old stock pre 1960s French Shriner and Urwin shortwing budapesters - crafted from shell cordovan, of course! They don't make 'em like they used to! Enjoy the weekend! Best regards James
James I was sure you would show up for a shoe shot :-)
