They really have a great disposition. They are energetic, but not painfully so. They are also a great size, friendly, etc. They can be a bit territorial around other dogs though, which is a bit of a pain. At least she does't want a horse.

Nice watches...I love the Panerai

Recently got into watches and I already have a Rolex as an homage to my Dad (huge Rolex guy), now looking at a Cartier Tank as an homage to my Mom (Cartier lady). I am deciding between the XL (left) or L (right).

The XL is automatic and has a date function (L has neither) but I feel that the L looks better on my wrist. Opinions?

He definitely eats as much as a bear does...its enough to put a person in the poor house.

It called a Caucasian Ovcharka.  They are originally from Eastern Europe and are used for hunting bears and defending flocks from wolves.  They require strict discipline and a lot of socialization from a young age or they can be overly aggressive and difficult for even an owner to handle.  They are loyal and protective but definitely not for people that are inexperienced with or lax in teaching and disciplining a dog.

I think you have enough wrist to carry off the XL. In my experience square and rectangular watches generally wear and feel a larger than round watches.  I have previous model of Cartier Tank XL (manual wind, no date) and I adore it.   I think the XL looks good on you, but of you prefer the Large go with the large.  We can advise you as to looks, but only you can decide how each feels on your wrist.

The breed is featured prominently in Brad Thor's, "Scot Harvath" books. I like the series and always got a kick out of the dogs. Nice to see a picture of one.

imo, the XL looks far better. the L seems too small on your wrist, it does not have enough presence and seems to be getting lost. there is a lot of wrist showing on both sides above the lugs. the XL looks just right. just my take.

Had this delivered yesterday.. found on le bay for a resonable price last week:

 

 

 

 

Also, I found this 1964 Omega Seamaster, which has been refurbished / repainted, my maximum bid didn't meet the reserve price, but the seller sold to me (at maximum bid) which I thought was pretty reasonable so took it... thoughts on this?? 

 

 

 

I've only recently started to appreciate finer time pieces, so am a bit of a novice in that respect. 

 

Also apologies for the picture quality.. taken on I-Potatoe camera

I'd say the XL too.  There's something quite dainty about the design to me, especially as it's gold.  So the larger size makes it look more "manly" on you, without being at all "chunky" or out of proportion.  It looks wonderful.

I agree with XL suggestions.

What I am wearing today:
Montblanc Automatic
Aquascutum shirt
Gieves & Hawkes Jacket
Silver toecap cufflinks

Also, what are people view of MB watches, not seen many on here. Had this piece for over 3 years, I was attracted to the curve and aesthetics more...and the pricé of course
