The Patrimony is so light, that' what I love about it...and it's got RG case + black dial (my favorite combo).
I like the fact that the case is a little bit curvy
I'm not a huge fan of the BR that are completely square... they are too big to be square IMO

name) and it was pretty bad ass even though I'm not sure you could read the time on it!!
Have you spent a considerable amount of time in the US?
did you see that the correct number of jewels in cal 1222 was now indicated on the VC web site?
Yes I did; appreciate it very much. I have noticed several times that the things you have said would indicate that you must have spent a good amout of time here and you liked it.
All Black - that's the name of the model...
It is a pretty cool watch, and it looks pretty evil (if Mr Darth Vader had a watch, it would probably be this one). In fact, it with the AB that I got first interested in Hublot. Legibility is really bad, but then again this watch is all about emotions (comes back to the articles you recently posted on the Press Corner).
I wanted to buy this model first, but I was late trying to ge hold of one (it's a LE of 250 - like half of Hublot's models), and I would have had to pay almost 2x the MSRP on the 2nd market... I liked it, but not that much. And then with time I started to like the Ice Bang more, which is the exact same model as the AB, albeit it has the bezel, the hands, numerals and hour markers
in tungsten. It still has the monochrome effect (can you see a trend in my small collection?)...
There's no real point discussing the movement (a slightly modified 7750) or its finishing, it is what it is: a fun/fashion watch (having said that, it is losing about 1 minute per month, so it is pretty acurate). But I like it a lot (one of my favorite sports watch), and in fact I prefer it a lot more to the AP ROO...
I know, I know. It's best coming from you.

Great watch Miki,
I love the subdial at 4-5 rather than the usual 6 o'clock. Its a very dressy looking watch but the subdial to the side gives it a playful character. Enjoy it and wear it in good health.
Today is Costco day so I am wisely wearing my crusty-as-myself vintage SS Breitling Top Time chrono (last time I wore my PP5146 and scratched it doing the groceries).
Wore my Jubilee RG to work yesterday, and my Toledo the day before that. Tomorrow will probably be an Overseas chrono day.
Have a great weekend guys!
