Ehh, figured firearms can be a divisive subject these days. Not that there's much wrong with homemade duck confit, but I err on the side of caution :dunno:

It's a 12-gauge Beretta A400 Xtreme Unico, great gun. Though actually a Memovox might be more appropriate to let one know when it's shooting time.

In the finest tradition of TWAT diversions, I would say.

I'm not sure if the red dial is still available, but I believe they are about to release white and blue.

I'm as anti-gun as they come, but nah, not remotely bugged. Nice timepiece!

Titanium works really well for some watches. The lightness can make a larger watch very comfortable. The more dull luster of Ti puts off some people but it has its place in a watch collection imo.

I love titanium, but has to be the right watch. It's also very hard to machine and finish, so you rarely see well finished Titanium cases. The MB&F HM1 I posted a while back is an LE in Titanium that has gorgeous brushed and polished surfaces, which you almost never see. I've been wearing this Richard Mille RM010 Ti lately

She wanted a dressy watch but doesn't like blingy, girly pieces. I think it wears well on her.

Wempe threw in a Lange travel case and a loaf of Christmas Stollen, which is damn delicious.

lovely story.

photos of the Lange travel case?

Sure. It's nothing particularly special -- pretty standard sunglass zip case with a foam insert for the watch. The leather presentation clamshell is much nicer.

Titanium has its place, particularly for those (few) people who have a nickel allergy, making the wearing of stainless steel watches uncomfortable, but for me, I find Ti watches far too light. If I'm wearing a watch, particularly if it's a sport or dive watch, I want to feel its weight, I like noticing its heft on my wrist. Ti ruins that for me. So, not for me I have to say.

This is great. Thanks for sharing!

Is it true Rolex only made roughly 200 pieces of the Daytona 16520 P series black dial?

I think Ti has an interesting texture and color, so it can add some diversity to a collection.  However, much like you I tend to prefer to feel the heft of a sports watch.

Although, I've heard they made more white than black dials through out the 16520's production, its highly doubtful they made only 200 with black dials.  Only Rolex has that information, any numbers someone is telling you at best is speculation.  Even so there are no differences between the A serial numbered 16520 Daytonas and the P serial 16520 Daytonas.  So in the end, its rather meaningless except to maybe the most devoted collector.
