That's going to be the one. Thanks to all for their input.

I know you're tired of looking at this watch but it went so well with today's ugly shirt.

^ the Pepsi homage bezel looks great with a white dial, but are those things cuffs or watch flaps?

I like that. But don't let Morrissey see the leather band, lol.

Thanks! I just made it last night. I debated using Stainless Steel hardware but figured the Solid Brass Black PVD looked better with the watch.

I just got around to resizing this the other day, so I might as well wear it.  I don't see people talk about Rado much, so I assume not everyone is a fan of the style, but I really like the ceramic.  For some reason a lot of watch shops were afraid to work on the band (they're expensive if you break them, I guess), so I bought a toolkit and did it myself.  No problem at all, it's really easy once you learn how it works.

 

 

It's really hard to take good photos of it, though...

Just an update to my recent post:

 

With some assistance from the fine folks in the other thread, I decided to narrow it down to the following watches, and then let my wife choose her favorite. This is supposed to be a gift, after all, so this way I will still be happily surprised, no matter which one she chooses. The nominees:

(Secretly, which one do you hope she chooses?)

Ha, good question. Honestly, without being able to try them all on, I would probably debate the merits of each one for weeks, if not months. I'm glad to take the decision out of my hands. I actually added the black version of that Longines GMT to the list, and I'd be thrilled with any of those options.

The black-faced Longines for $885USD is the best of that bunch IMO. The best size, the best specs, the best price.

I like the shape of that one and the crown guard also. But like I said, I'm an endless researcher, so I'm content to just let her choose and I'll love whichever one I get. Apparently, she ordered one from Jomashop yesterday while I was at work, so I'll post some pics whenever it comes. I think she might have been biased against that one because it was the cheapest, but I tried to stress that the price did not indicate it was a lesser watch, just like the more expensive ones weren't necessarily better, in this case.

Either way, you win. :)

I'm sure whichever one she gets you will be fine and dandy. Enjoy the new timepiece smile.gif
