February 29th is a big day in the world of #watchnerds. Why? Because it’s the one day every four years where we can turn to our non watch-nerd friends, say “hey, check this out!” – point to our wristwatch, and actually have them be impressed. OK so the above may only apply to those lucky enough to own a perpetual calendar, but still, this complication is one of the most beautiful, difficult to produce, but easy to understand in the realm of true grand complications. So this day, on the only February 29th to come this way for the next 1,459 days, we’ve decided to get some people together for a few cocktails to toast the perpetual calendar. Details after the jump.
