It's just a personal taste, many will disagree. But I think it looks childish and ugly. A normal submariner is a lot nicer.

Suede strap from Hodinkee on my SM300 today. Slightly silly with the camo, but I like it shog[1].gif

I wore my SM300 today cheers.gif

Went and checked out a JLC moon phase at Tourneau today. I was quite surprised at how light it felt on the wrist - $9400 retail on the stainless and $15000ish on the gold.

I uses to collect Speedys, and yours looks to me like a new style hand, not what is typical of the pre-moon models (look at the butt-end of the chronograph seconds hand). The hand on yours looks like the kind that went into service with the cal. 861, not the earlier castle-wheel 321s.
In any case, it is a great watch.

thanks. that is some awesome info.

based on that, i think the strap on my panny is nubuck, but no idea what hide. i was wondering how it had that soft almost fuzzy feel. i love it.

Any recs where I can score a transitional Omega 1969 Speedmaster with the 861 movement but the vintage styling?

Sorry. I haven't bought a watch in about ten years.

Sorry Stitches, I guess I forgot.

 

Besides I just couldn't help myself from posting another picture.

 

 

I like the Pepsi, and find it to be classic Rolex.

 

A little color every once in awhile is good thing in my book.

How much does a pre-owned Pepsi GMT run, more or less? Are they really hard to find?

post #15149 of 39273
Sorry for the overexposed photo. Just wanted to share some IWC love..

post #15150 of 39273

Also, since I've never bought vintage/pre-owned, where do you start looking for those? Is it all local ADs, etc? I know Tourneau does their little pre-owned thing, but I didn't get the feeling that they really discounted much...
