mMontebello, nice Daytona. Great all-around watch.

To be honest, I actually don't know how to change of strap myself... shog[1].gif so I haven't.

Even though it is a dark brown, in normal light it does appear lighter, and contrasts well with the white stitchings.

Rolex SS Submariner Black in action

post #22653 of 33972

^^ More simpler-is-better action from Rolex.  This (with no date), no-date oyster, or the perfectly sized 39mm Explorer 1?  And there's the Daytona of course.  Has to be at least one of them, sooner or later...

 

Thanks for the Piaget pic, Keith!  I think I like the back better than the front, though.  Not a lover of skeletons, really.  Even cool platinum ones with awesome micro-rotor backside action.

 

As for you and your nonsense, Frilly, imagine how many "special" Graham Chronofighters you could buy for that. ;)

In my opinion, one of the most gorgeous watches I have ever seen. It would be a completely emotional purchase, but damn, that watch is just gorgeous.


I love the sight of the balance wheel sneaking out from the back.

 

Love this watch. Do not like the Piaget branding on the dial. Yep its a dealbreaker for me shog[1].gif

Really? For some reason or another, I really don't mind the Piaget branding on it. The fact that it is on the rotor makes it pretty unobtrusive to me. It is fairly large though!

It definitely could have been done more discretely though...

All you need is a $5 strap changing tool. Gorgeous watch.

My old Longines has a fixed bar I do not know if this model is the same.

You can admit it, mimo.  Your list should also include a GMT-Master on a Jubilee bracelet.  Just like AHNOLD in this surely-SF-and-especially-mimo-approved stylin' pic:

 

 

That impeccably tight, "skinny" fit!  Those collars!  That hair!  I mean, it must be a trick of the light or something but you could even glimpse a pocket square peeking out there. Come on.  Style maven fo sho!

Not trying to be Arnold, but in my opinion it's certainly a great watch.

 

Especially on the Super Jubilee.

Root beer. Nipple dial. Jubilee or brown leather. Live happily ever after!

You know there is no rational way to disagree with that statement, Cylon.

I admit a GMT could also be an option.  Although I don't like the Jubilee bracelet very much.  But then we get into GMT options - vintage "Pepsi", "Coke", new black'n'blue?  I really don't know.  Anyway, academic for now, but maybe if someone accepts the consultancy proposal I'm currently writing - I will then consult with you!
