Here's a little something for the "Pepsi" GMT fans ...I know that we have several here.... courtesy of Airows: http://airows.com/22-photos-that-will-make-you-want-a-rolex-gmt-pepsi/
LOL @ Kaplan's swift, initial photograph-only response.
Cool...you've got some nice ones there.I also like your leather "watch coasters".
Congrats, foo! That's awesome. I guess you must have pulled off the frequently-discussed (but rarely-executed) two-fer. We joke a lot around here about "just buying both", but it's not every day that somebody really does it.

Kaplan, I've looked at several vintage tanks of this sort, and they really are awesome watches.So I do like how you're thinking. That's a good find.But I ultimately had to rule out anything in that size range (23 X 30) as being far too small for most "modern-built" gentlemen.And I've got a vintage Curvex that's only slightly bigger TBH ....just a couple of mm each way...... but man, once they get down into that territory, they can really start to look feminine IMHO.(My...
