I definitely understand the comments about the subdial spacing. Aesthetically, the close placement isn't too much of an issue on this one as it is on some of the other El Primero models (in my eyes), but it'd certainly enhance chrono subdial legibility to not be so close to the dial center (hands obscure the subdial for a longer amount of time).

Recently back from the shop and now the chrono works again, not too bad for a 40+ year old watch.

Where did you send it? I have one that I wouldn't mind getting serviced.

Fine Swiss Watch Repair on Wabash in the loop. Kent was great to work with.

I'm gonna revisit Axelman's question re: top 5 watches after some further consideration, and cheat a little bit by putting some alternatives in each slot according to brand. I know this isnt particularly realistic, but I'd rather throw out an uncompromising list. Maybe i'll swallow my pride and post a list of 5 Seiko 5's later rimshot.gif

 

1. PP 5110P worldtimer

2. an ALS "simple watch" i.e. 1815 platinum OR Richard Lange in platinum OR Anniversary Langematik

3. JLC Reverso 1931 US Edition OR still waiting for the right reverso to come along

4. Rolex sport watch, i.e 1680 Submariner OR 1680 red sub OR 1675 Pepsi GMT OR 1016 Explorer

5. JLC geophysic in stainless steel (I wouldn't mind a reissue of this watch)

 

...anyone wanna give me ~$90k?

Not a huge Reverso fan but these special editions are lovely:

Nice call on the Geophysic. Is it wrong that I am thinking about waiting until SIHH 2013 just to see if there is a reissue this year. For some reason or another, I have a gut feeling that this could be the year of the Geophysic. Such a sexy watch. Alas, a reissue would not have the Caliber P478. However, I would LOVE to see a Geophysic reissue that was: (a) manual wind [please no Geomatic reissue], (b) unfinished like the original, (c) with a new movement similar to Cal. P478, (d) with an acrylic crystal, or domed sapphire, (e) lume plots on the domed sapphire.

The GMT is probably my favorite Rolex. I love the Pepsi bezel so much. I can really see myself buying a 1675 or 16750 real soon. Even tho I already own a GMT-C. I love it that much.

My wife has the same watch without the diamonds as her everyday watch and loves it. Quartz movement obviously but then most women's fashion watches are, I popped into David Morris on Bond Street to look at some watches for her and though costing the earth they were all quartz.

My wedding was in November 2010. I waited till SIHH 2011 to pick a watch from my wife. Hence the MUT Moon, which was announced in 2011. So to answer your Q:

 

NO. biggrin.gif

There is one more enamel reverso from 2012. I actually tried this one on. It sits very big and the strap is quite wide. The buckle is quite substantial too
