    NS, that MUT Moon is gorgeous!

    My two -- just got the Speedy this weekend, it's fantastic on the strap. Anyone have recs for a 21mm curved end honey brown croc strap to fit it?

    If anyone is interested, the A Lange boutique in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong has a Grand Lange 1 LUMEN available.

    I have the 40mm polar Exp II, I actually tried 42mm polar but it didn't look proportioned to my eyes,for some reason, it looks cartoonish to me. I am quite happy with the one I have, it is very under the radar and doesn't scream Rolex.
    One other nice thing about DSSD is that it has a domed crystal and I am a big fan of those, like my Speedy with hesalite a lot. I could see myself going between blue/black GMT or DSSD, I would like to have both but would most likely go with one of them. I think that blue/black will be a serious contender.

    DJH - Congrats - awesome 9300! I think RogerP might have some strap suggestions. I wear mine on the OEM black strap, but the bracelet's not bad either. [​IMG]

    How do you guys like the co-ax thus far?

    I love that watch but it seems to have grown to 44mm.......almost too large for me.

    Thanks! My first nice watch was a speedmaster reduced from the 90s, so it's nice to be back in a speedy.
    I love it. The lugs are a bit shorter so its doesn't wear as big as a 44mm (at least compared to PAMs I've tried). I thought it'd be a nice compliment to my 40mm ExpII.

    +1. The RD is hoglee though.

    Yeah, I remember your pics, it looked great! Good luck with the gold; I handled the gold chrono a while back and it's ravishing...on of those things you could state at from front or back for hours!

    I think they live in rather different worlds in my mind, but at the same time, how is a Sub ever wrong? :)

    Lovely. Keith and I will try not to wake you. By the way, what's your shoe size?

    Mimo, seems like international criminal "borrower" could be a new career!

    @forex I own a black/blue GMT and love it. My only gripe are the polished links as they attract scratches easily. One small thing that just makes me smile every time is the ability to just adjust the hour hand. International travel and trips between time zones are a few simple adjustments away.

    Quote:Indeed - great buy. Google "peter watchacc" - excellent quality hand-made croc straps and very reasonable prices. He can even make them to fit the OEM Omega deployant.

    Nah....I say we tie frilly up, force him to wear some Rockports, an oversized polyester-blend buttondown, and a nasty two-tone quartz Armitron... and we post pics to his Instagram.

    Then we steal all teh watchez.

    It'll be like that big Cartier heist, only more embarrassing.

    OMG! Hahahahahahaaha!

    I couldn't take living life so dangerously wearing my Rolex all over the place. So today I wore a cheap watch on the subway.
