what a way to destory a classic.
On the other hand, Popeye looks pretty good on this Yachtmaster.
Yes, England is well represents by some of our car friends. Although, both Esprits are the Steven's redesigns, whenever I see them I can't help but think of the Esprit S1 that turned into a submarine in the 007 film "The Spy Who Loved Me."
Yea...there's that CPCP Tank XL.
It seems rare be on the same page with Tried and True...but women do seem to love Cartier watches. Mrs. Dino didn't want a Rolex for her first good watch, she wanted a Cartier, and she loves her Tank Francaise. I have a several women friends who love their Tanks, Pashas, and other models from Cartier. Depending on the model you could get her something on a steel bracelet or a strap. Obviously, with a steel bracelet she won't have to replace straps every few years the way she will if its a daily wearer. Wishing you lots of luck with your search for the right watch.
Hehe...mischievous of me to throw you under the bus there, but you always rise so sweetly to the challenge! At the end of the day, I think we can all agree that the Datograph is a masterpiece of engineering. Aesthetics will always be subjective, and if we all loved the same stuff it wouldn't be much fun: watches are engineering as art, and art is nothing without the different emotions it inspires in us.
I love the Datograph. Both versions. I also still want your Cayman S.
Revolting. " 'Em " needs an apostrophe at the beginning to denote the shortened form. Then it would be worth a $40k premium. Oh wait. No, I'd still buy a Datograph. Fuck 'em.
Not sure if you guys follow the auctions, but Christies has an Omega auction tonight that I bet is going to be bonkers. The days of reasonably priced Speedmasters are probably over. Will be interesting to see.
This is my 65 Ed White Speedy. One of the few pieces I can't imagine ever selling.
ooh! tuning in now: http://www.christies.com/livebidding/index.aspx
