That's because GMTs are the bomb.


They do look kinda cute in a knit cap, though:

Doesn't a GMT become useless if you live in the same time zone?

Well, there's a depressing thought. In any case — I don't know how to actually use these things, I just like pretty colours.

A friend of mine had one with an MOP dial for about a month.  He found it too difficult to read the time and the subdials were practically invisible.  He felt it lost a lot of its functionality with the MOP.  Later on he purchased one with a regular dial. 

 

I love Daytonas.  Below are a few quick pix of 2 of my Daytonas.

Daytonas are great watches. Even this one, which I regret not getting a better photo of...

Pretty excited about the PP Nautilus Annual on a steel bracelet. Ref 5726.   I have no original pics but hope to see one in person Saturday.

What I want is an annual calender watch durable enough for daily use and minimal immersion.  Obviously $47k is a committment for most of us. Ouch.  I will try to trade a 5146 on leather. 

 

Am I stuck paying full price in the US for this new model?

Is there another steel annual suitable for daily wear? 

 

Thank you
