Access to the WIS community is something I think a lot of us wish we had more access to.  I've been to a handful of things in the Boston area.  Unfortunately, most weren't well organized and or never happened again, and sadly at least a significant group of people that attended some of the Boston events were snobby or just plain strange.    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a Boston Red Bar Crew will work out nicely for our community and bring out a good group of...
Thanks for the eye candy!  Its always great to see something different such as non-round movements.   Your welcome ! The Ellipse takes some getting used to, but they have grown on me over the years.  Mrs. Dino thinks it would be an interesting addition to my collection at some point.  Also, it would be another Genta design in my collection.  Maybe at some point.   I hope he can get something going in Boston.  It would be cool to have a Red Bar Crew relatively close to...
It doesn't have the additional text on the dial saying "Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified."
The Explorer II has a fixed bezel, it does not rotate on any version (new or old). In addition, if you guys mean the old 1655...then yes you would still have the water resistance issue that comes with vintage watches.

Looks great!  Enjoy it and wear it in good health! 
One of my friends (who is a collector and writer in the watch industry) has owned a few and recently visited their factory.  He said he was really impress with their quality.  I have no personal experience with them.  I have another friend who really likes ABP straps.  My only personal experience is with Camille Fournet.  I think if you go with any of the above three brands you will get a really nice strap.  Try both on and see which appeals to you more.  I really like the...
Great shopping and great restaurants...although the sales tax there is brutal...its about 10% in the city IIRC.  The watch store I remember the most from my visiting Chicago in the past was Swiss Fine Time (they are an AD for AP, Panerai, Breguet, GP, Journe, Parmigiani, RM etc.)  They are on Michigan Ave.  CD Peacock was the local AD for Rolex, Patek, Panerai and a few other brands.
