What does "I have a Geneve" mean?

The MUT Moon is fairly dressy regardless of material. Get which one you prefer as it's not a "versatile" watch to begin with IMO (thats not a negative). The dial is gorgeous, good luck in your purchase.

SF Tourneau = awful still. It's almost like they don't want your money.

Appreciatively yours,

In my opinion, Panerai is too bulky and way too gaudy, especially in settings that require a suit.  What else do you have in mind?

Rolexs are great timepieces, but I feel like everyone recognizes them which kills the fun a bit and makes them a 'poke' watch. "oohh a rolllllexxxxx".

Boring.

 

I love the sleepers on this thread. The watches that you have to know to appreciate. It's like someone telling you your Emporio Armani suit looks great because they saw the tag but going oh that suit is nice when you wear your zegna sans label because they felt the fabric and can see that it fits even though they can't describe why.

I love my Rolex (and Tudor). I could care less what others may think or if they're recognised or not. They give me pleasure. That's all that matters.

Thanks guys. Keith, the red dial appealed precisely because it was a change of pace. It's not a common choice - particularly for a dress watch - and that was part of the appeal for me.

I don't think I like the color red enough personally to go that route for a watch, but I must say that's one heck of a dial....definitely can see where it would give you a lot of different shades to enjoy.

 

Luckily they have a cream dial for the less adventurous. Excuse the dust on the crystal.

^^^ The cream dial with the blued hands is quite stunning as well.

Like the red it can change shades depending on the angle. I will be stealing it from my wife on occasion haha. Ben should be quite proud of what he has produced.

Good to see the ~B~ watches out in the open!  Also we have some new people jumping into the TWAT discussion.  There must be a lot of lurkers that read our daily musings.  

 

As for Abraham suggesting a Patek, this thread could always use more Patek.

I can understand wanting to try something different.  However, how is a Panerai going to make you feel like less of an ecdysiast?  Are you looking for a sports watch, dress watch, something in between?  What is your budget?  I guess I'd have to know more about what you want to use the watch for before I could give an opinion as to what to purchase.

Definitely, one of my favorite pieces in your collection.

I agree that a Panerai seems like an odd choice for the reasons you are moving away from Rolex.

^^ If the OP is just looking for a lesser known brand to the general public, then I don't see an issue with Panerai. He really didn't say he wanted a different or certain style of watch...just something without Rolex on it.
