Ah, it was just to show that they don't only do sports-watch movements... that model has been around for ages (Cellini Prince). Not my cup of tea design-wise, but the quality is there. The Oyster-cased movements are well-finished, too; it's just not decorative finishing.

Barring the iced-out versions, the discerning pimp's choice would surely be the yellow gold / green dial one, no? (And for über-pimp credit, slap a ceramic Pepsi insert on that!) I reckon 18K for a travel watch is fine, but steel suits the GMT so much better... or some nice, tough platinum for that matter.

In other news, Nomos is now one of the very few companies that's off Swatch Group's tit, as they've spent the past five years quietly developing their own escapement and hairspring, which will be phased in without price increase. Hairspring manufacture is big-boy stuff; there are only a handful of companies in the world that are capable of it. They're without a doubt one of the good guys in the industry and as a small, independent manufacturer, their achievements are especially noteworthy. I was very pleased to see them mentioned recently by none other than Philippe Dufour as his top choice under $10K.

Edit- they have a Palm Beach phone number so maybe not in Tampa after all?

OK, thanks Flake.

cheers. Yeah my friend was considering it too, but thought he couldn't 'pull it off'. I'm 6'4 ~100kg so it suits me well

I also love the DeVille. I want to buy the blue face hour vision to wear at my wedding end of this year

The hour vision is a very cool version of the DeVille. RogerP owns one I believe.

^^^ Yessir.  I have the original silver dial version and it's a terrific watch.  The blue is off the hook:

Another Hour Vision fan here. I wore it on the bracelet at first but prefer it on the strap.

Lookin' good Foley. The strap definitely dresses it up, but I dig the retro-cool bracelet even though I am otherwise a devout strap guy.

Thanks RogerP.
When I got the Daytona I switched the Hour Vision to the strap to be a bit dressier.
But on the bracelet I think it is a bit more versatile.

Makes perfect sense.  I have a vintage Omega that I wear on a black strap, which is part of the reason I have kept the Hour Vision on the bracelet.

After an issue with the timekeeping accuracy on the watch I ordered, I'm now getting this Rolex instead, which is now on its way to me (not my pics below, I just used these as it's the best pic of the watch I could find):
