Great example showing the Radiomir's versatility.

I have a possible watch purchase in the next several months and your pictures are giving me a lot of food for thought.

Did someone say navy croc?

I have a midnight croc on the way, and it would be my suggestion for the MUT moon. Obviously navy would be a close second for me. No ostrich and no cordovan for that watch IMO.

Yep, I am with you on that one! Got to save for the prize at this point. Then, I can start to diddle around a bit.

Yes, I think you are right about that. I feel like that is kind of how you feel about your now-departed PAM.

I feel like this is become more and more analogous to women...

Both, I assume, priced rather high.

Haha, I have got to say, I think that this is about the perfect way to illustrate my point.

I'm not a fan of ostrich, but a navy strap looks great on that....I'd opt for navy croc or calf over ostrich, but that's just me.  

I have got to agree. I feel like I am sorely lacking a blue dialed watch.

I have got to say though... blue dialed watches are tricky. It is really difficult to get the right type of blue. For example, not a fan of smurf blue, but love that DJ blue.

For you and Dino, I thought I would switch back to an old, not very loved around here combination. Although I love the black croc, unfortunately the band it getting too large for my shrinking wrists.

Unlike Dino, I like ostrich. Unfortunately I just don't think it fits with that watch.

Unfortunately, I am not in disagreement with you smile.gif. Not in agreement, necessarily, but definitely not in disagreement.

I don't hate it so much that I will stop using such a pricy purchase.

Nuke it looks great icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

For me it's gotta blue, then black

Though I'll take as is!

Looked at this Glashutte Senator Automatic. I'm not too familiar with the brand. Thoughts?



I'm not sure I like the "double bezel" it kind of has.

I agree, it has to be the right color blue...I'm not a fan of the current blue dialed two tone, all gold, or white gold Submariners all of which I find to be a Smurf-ish color.   But the blue on Datejust, a 5711 or 15202 are quite spectacular.

 

Great watch in the photo, but I'm not a fan of the color strap or ostrich.

While I appreciate that ostrich is very durable, its not for me.  Ever since I heard someone with rather exquisite taste say, "Ostrich, it looks like leather with acne," I've just never been able to look at it the same way.  But just because its not for me, doesn't mean others shouldn't enjoy it.

kind of. if not for the damn MD state taxes that i was billed with and the customs charge, i would have broke even on that. essentially i rented it for a year for like 500 bucks.

and if not for my spending like a moran, i would have kept it. though i think if i kop another panny it will be the 210.
