Yeah I had a feeling it wasn't straight forward as switching the hands out. I think I will leave designing to the experts. Its a shame less and less watchmakers use the Mercedes hands now its a nice classic design.

Just googled them their 'ocean one' looks very much like my Tag (Or closer to Rolex Oyster I think).

@ellsbebc congrats! Any hints on what it is?

^ Steinhart are mostly Rolex homages, but they're good quality. I have their Ocean GMT variant as my daily beater.

A staple in any watcher collector's arsenal. It can be a polarizing subject in regards to which model to own.

Staple so can't be Patek... I know we mentioned it already but Rolex or Omega is where I'll place my chips.

I agree, but I've just ordered from France a handmade alligator strap for my GRAFF watch which will top that!!

Fully bespoke so I don't know when I'll get it, but it cost a fortune and has to last a long time!(watch on black shiny crocodile that it came with ATM but I wanted a special strap - it's one of my many birthday presents to myself!!!)smile.gif

Hey JB--funny you should say that about the Speedmaster. To be completely honest, I actually purchased my Speedy Pro sight unseen. I bought it kind of because it made sense at the time. And I really, really do not think I would have bought it at an AD.

However, after having it for the last year and a half or so, I could not imagine being without it! I adore my Speedy Pro. It is not very assuming, and it definitely is not the sexiest thing out there. But it is reliable, and it it has been a great companion. It is also one of the best designed chronographs, aesthetically speaking (imho). I understand it not speaking to everyone though! Side by side against your Batman, I really don't think it would hold a candle. It really is one of those watches you have to own to fully appreciate.

As for the new SD4000--I absolutely love it so far.

The side by side pics between the SD4k and the Sub are really interesting. I am surprised to see how much larger the Sub looks, in comparison.

I will have to seek the SD4k IRL before making my final judgment. For me, it really is going to come down to how thick it is / how it wears.

But all in all, I think it is really, really a great watch. I wonder how the fully graduated bezel will look in the flesh. The only aspect I am reticent about is the bezel, particularly the odd markings.

Also, Frillz, congrats on the greensy! Looks very cool! And I love the blue lume... it really is awesome.
