post #41011 of 48312

Is the Speedmaster Pro something that you guys think would work in a dressy environment if you put a leather strap on it once in a while, or do all the dials rule it out of this category? I am trying to decide what is a solid, versatile starter watch for someone that doesn't wear suits very often, and it seems that the Speedy Pro is the safest bet in this price range and category.

Not anywhere near my idea of a dress watch, but way better than what I see a lot of guys wearing with their suits.

See, wear one and live long and prosper.

Nice 112.

Ok, so I suspect I'll be accused of being the pot calling the kettle black...

But the trifecta of pre-increase price, VAT refund and exchange rate made it an offer I couldn't refuse--so here's my grail acquisition:



Waiting for the Overground in London.

Does anyone have pics of an 18K 16758 GMT root beer on a croc strap? Ive had a hard on for this for the longest time.

It works well as a versatile starter watch and takes on very different looks depending on the strap.

Congratulations good sir. Which version did you wind up getting in the end?

In the end, the stunning grained dial and blackened nickel hands/indicies of the WG version made the decision automatic.

I think the IIII works really well on Cartier watches as their Romans seem to be a bit bolder and more stylized than that of the Patek or Lange in question.
VC often skips the IIII vs IV dilemma by using a stick markers at the 4.









Love the first one Dino - available?

Congratulations! Is that in WG or steel?
