Playing Favorites

Which of course is something that you are not supposed to do.

But sometimes you can be forgiven.
This is one of my favorite watches this year - the Cuervo y Sobrinos Solo Tiempo.
The case itself is special.  Not exactly a tank, not exactly a tonneau.  It is unique.
The dial is a wonderful cream color.  Again, not white, not silver - unique.
I think what I like most of all is that it is not trying to be something that everybody else is.
