The guy you asked to PM you has the next model, ref 116610 which has the ceramic bezel, maxi dial, and wider case shoulders.

Now that you've said it, I think a big part--or rather the entirety--of the reason I have a hard time pulling the trigger on a brown strap is precisely because of this fact. It is definitely a COLD dial, and certainly something to think about. As some of you may know, I kinda soured on it for awhile after I bought the speedy, but I have come back to it in recent weeks. I think a new strap will help, and heres some I found. I think the watch will look FREAKING AWESOME with something like these two:

 

 

 

700

 

 

Sometimes I think I'm a bit colorblind when it comes to navy but the right strap is navy right? biggrin.gif

Looks like Navy to me... but that is also coming from someone who is slightly colorblind. It looks a bit 'grayvy.'

^ the cut out dial is cool.  It reminds me a little of the dials of Cartier's Fine Watchmaking Collection.  Congrats and enjoy.

I presume you mean the Submariner models (I mentioned at the top of the page).  I like differnet things about each.  The bracelet and clasp is better on the new model (solid links) and the ceramic bezel is highly scratch resistant.  However, there is a charm about the case of the previous model and its more classic tapered lugs, and I still like the old anodized aluminum bezels (which are much less expensive to replace than the new ceramic inserts).  I have a 16610 LV (green bezel Sub with black dial) and I really like it alot.  You just need to try them on and see which one really makes you smile.

 

If you are speaking of the Cartier Fine Watchmaking Collection, I really like the Santos Dumont Squelette.  A very cool and modern version of a skeleton.
