in_stitches - I think the 372 at 47mm is also big for your wrist. The 112 looks great.

Reminds me the gay pride slogan "Lound & Proud"

Gay pride slogans don't cost as much as a townhouse....

I'm sure many people would. Fat rappers however are hardly style icons.

(2) these are tool watches that require (a) rugged, proven and reliable movements and (b) large enough to fill a 44mm case without huge silly spacers. When you think of it, there are very few available ebauches that fit these criteria. On the face of it, Unitas is simply the best solution for this watch, regardless of price. They had from the very first Ltd editions, and for smaller cases, some more inteesting movements (I have a Pam98 with a F. Piguet movement for example) but these are generally not as rugged and reliable as a good old Unitas

I can appreciate the size of the Unitas movement relative to the case size, and that its a very cost effective movement for them to use in their base models.  However, I personally would not be happy wearing a watch of that price with a Unitas movement.  I like the design of the Panerais, just not many of the movements they choose to put in their watches.

You can see my 118 as a proxy for the metal and dial. It's 10 years old though and pretty beat up...
post #13107 of 48312
Deal!

But i still want my homage pic, so bring the 112 as well. biggrin.gif

I just checked the OP again, that 210 REALLY is nice. I think you got it right, there is just no way to have just one panny.

I get that this is just a take off on what we do here every day, but this is one of the most hilarious threads I've ever seen

Jesus, the absolutely horrifying outfits, watches, the nonstop blowing of each other, the completely over the top, staged, 'let me fit every ounce of materialism I can in this pic'... it's unreal.

Where could they have gotten the idea to do this? lol8[1].gif

If I had a YG GMT II, my first instinct would not be to slip it on an Ace of Spades bottle like on p.139. Wow.
