    There are at least 2 of 70 owners in TWAT, no? :nodding: It's probably the only thing I've ever paid full freight for and am continually happy about.

    Lunar New Year = wear red. Better/natural light pics... eventually? :embar:

    A couple small wear and tear marks (bracelet mostly), but it appears to be a nice unpolished example. Bonus points for extra black bezel.

    I look at the Maybach as a gussied up Lincoln Town Car, not something you'd drive yourself but rather something to be driven in. Like the LTC it's got a stealth asthetic, not drawing anywhere near the attention that a Bentley or a Rolls does. I think Mercedes intended the Maybach to be all about the back seat and there it delivers an experience, in ride and comfort, that is unsurpassed. And my mechanic (forty years working on high end rides) says that it's the best value (bang for,the buck) that he's seen in years.

    We get off topic sometimes.

    I feel like I need a DJ, fluted, and jubilee bracelet. They are mesmorizing.

    In an effort to get back on track here is a photo from a casual meal with Mrs. Dino, and my Sub LV. We shared a wonderful "S'mores ice cream pie" with toasted marshmallows. Its been a while since the Sub LV has had some wrist time...but with all the snow and ice we have had its nice to see some green. I'm hoping that I'll see more green soon in the form of spring weather and my lawn.

    I like them too. A friend bought that and a Calatrava (the one where the lugs fall off) and called it a day. That was over 30'years ago and he's still,happy as a clam. That's really all you need; a steel sport watch and a gold dress watch.

    Sometimes the thrill of the chase is more exciting than the actual kop. Been randomly going into pre-owned dealers looking at Pepsis, Cokes, two toned subs and gmts for a couple of weeks. Once the kop has occurred there'll be no more excuse to do so.

    My next purchase will likely be a GMT 1675 or Explorer 1016, with the GMT gaining fast.

    Thanks! Will look out for that.


    So, after the porn shoot, proudly displaying your wealth, you don't jump in the shower? Now that seems weird to me.

    Dino, that's a beaut - love the green bezel. I have no trouble with this being the watch, car and cake appreciation thread.

    Apart from Richard Mille, and obviously AP, for whom else does Renaud et Papi provide movements?

    I don't get to dress up too often but when I do it's nice to put on the 'little guy' (term of affection).. Trying to up the Porn content a little more I suppose.
