Interestingly enough, I am considering the Christopher Ward C9 5 Day Auto and wearing it as a business casual/dress watch.  For some reason, traditional dress watches (in my price range) really bore me.  It was actually all the pictures of the GO Pano's that got me leaning this way.    
The white numbers on the blue background are what bother me the most.  It makes them very pronounced, even more so than on the traditional MO.  What I would like to see for a limited edition is an Antea with no numbers.
I received an email about a new limited edition blue dial Stowa Marine Original.  I'm itching for a blue dial watch on a strap, but something about this seems too busy.  
@mimo , that suggestion of the Sinn 556 (a or i) is a great suggestion for what he is looking for.  Your enabler title is safe.
 I've got a couple green jackets, one tweed and one cashmere, so I know I can pull off that in the workplace.  I suspect part of it is that I would feel underdressed in a wrinkled linen jacket at the office.  It's probably more my issue than anything else.  I think I have enough questions about this fabric that I'm going to pass for now and get something in mid-blue from KW's stock fabrics instead.  I may hold off on green until KW can get the Drapers fabric or something...
 One of the reasons I do not want a linen jacket is I feel all the wrinkles make it too casual for my work environment.  I had been led to believe a 9 oz wool/linen/silk blend would give me the best of both worlds - the drape and clean lines of a wool jacket with a fabric that is a little cooler and breathes better.  Was I mistaken about the 9 oz blend or is there that much of a difference when going down to 6 oz?
 Thanks.  It would be the green jacket above.
I am ignorant regarding fabric choices, but noticed that most of the fabrics we were discussing before were 9 - 10 oz and this new one is 6 oz.  Any concerns making a jacket out of something so light?
 It is the version with the dark blue dial and bezel.  I actually wear this pretty frequently for work on business casual days.  It works pretty well for this due to the bracelet and the contrast between the polished and brushed links on the bracelet.
@flvinny521 , I have had an Oris Aquis for close to a year now and love it.  The finishing on the watch and bracelet are outstanding when considering the cost.  The movement is ho hum and has been running at about +12 per day for me.  I've been very happy with the purchase.  I suspect you will be very pleased with the Oris you picked out.
