Reminds me a bit of the old titanium Porsche Design Ocean 500 and Ocean 2000 , made by IWC, and which could be put on an optional velcro strap.  I'd rather have the Ocean 500 or Ocean 2000.

Exactly what I think of the Submariner being worn by people who never get wet unless it rains or a Daytona/Speedmaster being worn by people whose mode of transport is of the public variety.

Thanks for the kind words on the RO pic, guys. I marvel at daily.

I actually ended up selling my T-o-G last week cuz it wasnt getting any wear. My savings account appreciated it.

:eek:  Rolex-less!!!   Wow...that's a surprise.  However, as I have said to other watch friends, if I could only have one watch for everything, the RO could easily do the job.  Glad to hear that the RO is getting plenty of wrist time, enjoy it!

I know, Im astounded as well. I thought I would forever have a Rollie in the stable.

Alas, funds were low, but more importantly, the 15300 could really be my one watch. Its the first time I find myself not planning my next kop because I feel like short of a supercomplication, nothing could top this.

I may get a leather strap for it tho.

At present, it seems that way.

Only the Zeitwerk Repeating in plat stands out in my mind as a burning desire. But thats 6 figger territory. Its a dream not even a plan, in the aforementioned supercomplication category.

After acquiring my RO, I didn't purchase another watch for roughly 2.5 years.  There are lots of great watches available, but after getting the RO, very few watches captured enough attention for me to seriously consider purchasing them.  Over the last few years the RO has gotten about 90% of my wrist time.

I know how Stitchy feels.  My RO largely cured my lusting for other watches.

There must be something wrong with me. The kop desire is still strong even though I tell myself repeatedly I have a very broad (though not necessarily deep) collection. Which includes a blue dial 15400 RO.

Unrelated and probably blasphemous but whadya know, rubber strap doesn't look too out of place with a suit.

Look like you need the white dial 15300 to cool your jets.

Love the new Zenith EP Chrono - doesn't look too big for 42mm, but this would've been an insta-kop at 40mm:

I'd like to see a BLNR on a royal blue NATO...has anybody tried that yet?

In my imagination, I think that would be a decent combo.

Zenith reminds me of an owl. Subdials too close to center for me personally.
