Here's a shot of my 42mm 338. Which I am very happy with as it is one of the few Titanium Radiomirs produced.I think it works well as both a dress/casual understated watch.
I am looking forward to seeing the similarly priced new Seamaster 300 Master in Titanium when it hits the Dealers at the end of the year.
A beautiful,elegant watch that caught my attention recently that can be picked up reasonably is the Junghans Meister.Simple,pure,form and function,that looks even better in the flesh than pictured.

I don't know where else to post this, but, upton nudes are online with verlander.

Good grief.

I think Junghans are really good value, and I like the Max Bill line.  But that one is undermined just a bit for me by the position of the small seconds dial - it makes it too obvious that the case is over-sized for the movement.  Pity, it's a beautiful understated design.

I guess Christmas came early for TWAT...

And there's more, oh so much more. Don't click on unless you want to see her in all her glory. Links are dying fast, but new ones are posted on Reddit and 4chan. Reddit created this subreddit about the full leak event (tons of pics of other celebs): http://www.reddit.com/r/thefappening

Spoilers dude!

 

In the mean time, here is something else with a charming duality:

 

 

I saw a picture of this online a while back, and was fortunate enough to find the RG version in the Piaget Boutique in Dubai.  It's on the large side, but still elegant I think, and so whimsical and different: how to do a GMT?  Add another watch.  Yep, that'll do it.  Does make it quite expensive though.  One for the wish list maybe - even as a limited number, it seems these turn up pretty soon for 30-40% off either new or nearly new.  It seems pretty sensible to never buy a new Piaget from the AD - GP, RD...how many others on that list?

 

Nuke, how about this instead of the Saxonia GMT?  :)

While Boxsters & Caymans are less expensive than 911s, they can easily be optioned out so they cost more than a base 911.

In addition, I've seen on Porsche forums a slow but steady migration from 996s & 997s , 997S's , 997C4s's and early 997GT3s to 981 Boxsters & Caymans. It's no longer just price, it's because they are that good. The 991 & 997s are nice but have gotten larger, heavier and moved closer to a GT car unless one goes with a 997 GT3 RS 4.0. Short of that, get a 997 or 991 on the road and they are really nice, but the latest generation 981, is more nimble, lighter, closer in size to earlier 911s, and overall more fun to drive.

Sports cars involve issues like cornering, acceleration, grip, and fun to drive factors that can go beyond which design came first. In addition, the current 911 is so drastically different from the originals that one could say its a derivative or caricature of itself. The "911" has 50 years of history & its shape is iconic ... but if someone really has their heart set on a 911, I'd suggest they get a quirky, air cooled car, and experience what really built the 911's reputation....that is something no modern Porsche can give a car owner, and because of emissions/environmental regulations we will never see cars like that again in the future.

Sorry gents, now back to our regularly scheduled program.

As mentioned, I like some GOs, and they make a great product, but the Pano isn't for me.

Porsche 911 owners are a little too fanatical for me. I sometimes think that if Helios offered his chariot made of gold and able to cross the world in half a day to a 911 owner he would say "No thanks, it does not handle like a 911."

Of course Helios's son was Phaeton but that's another story.

I'm sorry TWAT brethren. I was perfectly aware of these developments but I couldn't post on TWAT as one hand was busy.

If the leak came from Justin Verlander's phone I have mixed feelings about whether I want to thank him profusely or if I want to pretend to reach out to shake his hand but then suddenly level him with an axe kick to the shoulder.

I saw the pics of Kate and I ve to say, I'm not impressed. :confused: Massive bewbs but she's a "gordi-buena" (a girl that is a bit fat but still desirable, something like that) as we mexicans use to say. The difference is that some "gordi-buenas" have bigger butts than Kate.

Given that there were pics of other women on his phone as well, I suspect he's in for a good dumping. 

 

Also I must say after seeing the pics that he's a bit sick. There's like porno level stuff in there, and why on earth would a same man do that stuff with someone he knows he's going to see again? Plus, er, um, selfies that he's got no grounds to be proud of.

Hahah. Just don't know what to make of it. Were they all from Verlander's phone? Was it a mishmash of images uploaded on imgur? Who knows. I mean, not that I actually saw any of these pics... Hahahah

Ooh very nice. I was fortunate to visit the Piaget factory a while back and see how these Double Jeus were made. The case work is pretty interesting.

I like that a lot, too. Pity about the plexiglass "crystal." Any idea of how it wears in real life?
post #35040 of 38586
No sorry ,I just saw it while window shopping.
I agree about the plexiglass,and that is the only thing that deters me personally.i have read elsewhere similar criticism regarding the second hand positioning,but that doesn't bother me.in fact I think it enhances the appearance as the concave really plays with the light.
