Titanium does that if you look at it sideways.

Amen to that, brother.

One thing I like most about my 112 is that it can be cleaned up pretty well with the cape cod cloth.

Also, don't let these enablers tell you that you need lots of watches. You totally can have a "do everything" watch, and the Explorer would be a good one. You already have a chrono, so just add a diver, something casual like a pilot, maybe a chrono on a bracelet with a different colour dial, a formal dress watch of course - maybe two hand manual wind, then just one or two options for rotation with your daily suits and perhaps something with a non-round case, and you're pretty much done. Oh, and of course a GMT or world timer for travel. Just the simple everyday bare minimum.

But don't feel at all pressured or led astray by these wit-stolen lunatics - most people in this thread have no perspective at all: you really don't need more than these absolute basics.

LOL'd:rotflmao:



And I'm prepared to at least DOUBLE Jbarwick's offer for that sweet Panny! Ha ha.

Guys, thanks for the feedback.

I am sort of undecided about two watches right now.

This exact DJII:

This IWC Big Ingeniur Plastiki, which hit me like a brick wall yesterday and I've been thinking about it ever since:

Thoughts? Opinions?

I just wanted to get folks thoughts on Omega's newish Mark II chrono - we always talk about the traditional Speedmaster, but I just tried on the Mark II at the boutique in NYC and it looked great on the wrist. To me, it looked like a really fun watch for the weekends and was so evocative of the 70s in a good way. I can get my hands on it for a great discount (~4k) and am seriously considering it. Wanted to do a sanity check re: others thoughts before I did something rash.

Sweet 176 @bkotsko - an ink eraser easily cleaned up the scuffs on my old 240. Looked brand new in less than 5 minutes. Ti scratches easily, but as a result of those same properties also cleans up well too..

Mr. Moo, for one of the few sane people on this thread (myself excluded) who actually wants to keep their watch collection in check, I would recommend the DJII. If you end up keeping the Speedy, your DJII fills the dressier gap much better than the Ingeniur and I think it's always special to have a Rolex in the collection. And that Datejust looks great on your wrist.

I think you mentioned wanting to check out the Milgauss as well and I would strongly recommend doing that - if you are attracted to the Ingeniur, the Milgauss might be just what the doctor ordered with the Rolex pedigree. I love the Milgauss and am excited (but also skeptical) to check out the new blue dialed model.

Best of luck! I agonize over this part of the process.

Tough call, Moo. Id go with the DJ there.
post #34736 of 48312

I am not a fan of the 70's style but I do like the dial layout.

 

And since KeithT is Doubling my offer...might as well TRIPLE MY OFFER!!!! (can you hear me now?)

You already answered to yourself, Moo. :D

Could be infatuation rather than love.
post #34740 of 48312
^^ What he said. ^^

I never buy a watch that "hits me," without waiting at least a few weeks to see if the love is passing or not.
