 I hated the Nautilus - the whole idea of a "luxury sports watch in steel" was once abhorrent to me; and what was up with those ears? When I put the 5711 on my wrist, it was over.  My AD shipped it to me within the next hour (to avoid in-state taxes, but man, what torture to wait the next day).  Rented a ZipCar by the hour to pick it up from across the river once I confirmed shipment arrival.  Put it on my wrist and have been taking it everywhere with me for years now. If...
 Late to replying to this! If you're up for a $200 spend, why not get a Pro Gear from Sailor?   http://www.nibs.com/sailor-pro-gear-slim-sky.htm My cousin has several Nakayas (that she helped design with Mr Nakata himself) - and she says they are among the most beautiful pens she's owned.  But for her reliable daily pen, she swears by her Pro Gear II.  Says that sometimes she feels that the Sailor nib writes even more smoothly than the Nakayas (HERESY!).   Plus John...
  Did you not feel much more enamored of the 5960/1A when you put it on your wrist, versus seeing it in pictures?  If not, then it really might not be something for you.   At that price point, and given the annual calendar complication, I've always felt like I could get a far better value with discontinued perpetual calendars in the secondary/preowned market - but that's just me.  And a perpetual calendar in steel, on a bracelet, is going to be hard to find. Anyway, at...
 Sounds like me. I rarely push more than three and a half hours a week these days.

Done in 50-55 minutes, back to the little kids. On the plus side, I've been relatively injury and pain free most months of the year;...
 Great profile! Which camera do you use for your captures?  Thanks! Quite love her.
 Let's see it!
 Have fun! Loved my time in the MBA program.  While I was taking my MBA (gulp) sixteen years ago, I helped train competitors in the local university's bodybuilding competition.  Haha!  Those were fun days. My days setting PRs are long gone as I train mostly to stay healthy and relatively fit for my kids these days, but I'm still happy learning new skills.  Picked up the jump rope recently and having tons of fun.  Even though I suck and take several days to pick up variations.
I love all three of those!!!
No love for the PAM 243?You able to check the SD4000 at the Doha airport?
I would qualify this post as most excellent, quite competent service. Just saying.
