kaplan, that's beautiful.
i bought a speedbird III off tz on a whim and it's an absolute steal for the price. really well engineered- the bracelet in particular is in a different league from that on my sub.
case and dial are really impressive - add in the anti-magnetic core and eta movement and it's getting hard to justify flipping it to buy an IWC (which was my original intention).

Personally, I'm not a fan of the 6 o'clock date and the black date wheel. But I think the Speedbird I without the date looks great, especially with the longer, thinner 5 min markers, like on the IWC Mark XII. I have no idea how hard it is to find one of those, though.

I have one and like it a lot. Be aware that some people will mistake it for an IWC counterfeit though.

don't be ridiculous. The watch is only used for timing important events such as boiling of two eggs
