Booyah! Awesome "congrats" pic here, man. Thanks - and hello from mine to yours too!
Thanks for more eye candy! The Autavia is definitely one of the coolest vintage Heuers. The Breitling is cool too with its very 70s design.
The first time I saw a gold Daytona with a black face, I literally salivated. But, apart from being too expensive for me, it would also require my buying a purple Cadillac and a big hat, and living off the earnings of prostitutes.
However, I think what you said about proportions and the like, the recent discussions of Rolex and reality versus brand image, and the pictures of these beauties, has shown the true path: stainless, white face, beautiful enough to stare at but not totally associated with cuban heels and crack. I love it.
(still drooling, though - it is even more awesome on the wrist, and with that nice shirt, surprisingly un-pimpish!)
Hehe...hope Dino has a sense of humour; such a thing is not always a given among SF members!
There is something about that black-on-yellow gold that makes me wide-eyed and mad like Gollum for his ring...I feel similar about almost anything in rose gold, but this particular watch just gets to me. I just never considered it...wearable. And now I admit, I was wrong. Which means I have a new problem: I really want it! My preciousssss....
