That longines is quite nice, is it one of the new models?  The strap is also quite nice.

I think I've finally decided on the Portuguese Perpetual. Now I just need to make up my mind between rose gold with white dial, or white gold with the ardoise.

I vote for the WG Ardoise dial:thumbs-up:

I believe its retail on 42mm version is $7,200 but I see people selling it for close to 9K, one guy is actually selling one for 11K right now.. I believe my AD will receive their stock soon maybe I should buy one and flip it.

I think I'm leading in that direction.

I love the vintage Daytona models. I just cant really justify spending that kind of money on a watch at my age. If money wasn't an issue at all I would certainly get the 70 model but since I am still young and need to be somewhat practical, I think the Daytona with the Zenith movement makes more sense now.
