Took this a while back but it's still one of my favorites. Shot was taken with a 105mm macro on a D3 using 8in bellows in about 12 exposures. Frames were stitched together in PS. Watch is a Rolex Turn-O-Graph on Oyster bracelet:

Nice. Where can I find a strap like that? Looks awesome on that watch. Love the blue on blue.

Thank you. I really like it too. So many great watches in this thread.

Can any of you guys knowledgeable in repairs speak to this: I took my Oris and Seiko into one of the high end shops today to appraise service. They refused to service it stating that Seiko and Oris do not release parts to them and that all repairs for those brands have to be in house (sent back to them). This sounded like bullshit to me, since they use completely generic movements. Thoughts?

you can get a good condition speedmaster professional for around £1200 and the 1171 around £100. a bit more than you specified but it's worth it, one of my favourite watches.
also, if you don't take to it, you'll almost certainly get your money back if you flip it.

Try to use a strap. Would make it mutch better.

Given some of the pictures I've just seen, and although I don't need a third chrono, I think an Omega Speedy is in order as my prospective watch purchase...

yes, and go for the Ferrari over the Taurus, won't cost much more. Like 8 times, but who's counting?

Could be correct:

i think its about 2x? but you its a daytona... the holy grail of rolex will never depreciate a penny.. while the speedmaster will be worth half the price you got it for the second you walk out of the store
