    Those outside of the fashion industry call anyone who is "into fashion" or "wearing crazy clothing" as being a fashionista.

    Those inside of the fashion industry view the term "fashionista" as being more equated to a label whore or someone who tries (well, some might actually live it) to portray a lifestyle of luxury/glamour/taste. Think the FIT student who runs around with a monogram Gucci tote, Dior aviators and runs around to the main designer boutiques to buy a tshirt or sneakers here and there. Their myspace or AIM name will probably have the word "couture" in it.

    Oh the irony.

    What do you get if you cross a pilot with an ape?

    An ape with a big watch.

    I like the chrono - liked it more in its last incarnation but this one is nice too.


    Can you tell me how you got my image to work?

    Sure.

    It's actually easier than on TimeZone which looks like the code you were using:

    you can also hit the yellow mountain icon in the reply box and just paste the URL of the picture.

    Does that make any sense?

    like the zenith quite a bit. a great example of restrained elegance unlike some of zenith's newer, garish models. nicely edited collection too. yours doesn't suffer from overlapping watches. i like collections having just one diver, one dressy, one casual, sporty/elegant etc. do you have a beater or is it the panny?

    That's mine.
    It's called the "Mystery Dial."

    What do you think about de Grisogono? I'm not even sure how to read half of the faces.

    While I love creative watches that utilize non-traditional ways of displaying the time + complications, those de Grisogono's are really bizarre, as if they were purposely going out of their way to make them hard to read.

    Not very porntastic, but here's my daily watch. Tissot Ballade automatic (ETA, I believe). I need a new band. Where can I get a croc/gator band for a good price?

    Looking at those watches intensified my hangover. No thanks. [​IMG] Besides, they could well be confused with cheapo "innovative" watches, like some models from Fossil, etc. I think this one's the most attractive (and the easiest to read):¨ [​IMG]

    For somewhat commonly available and relatively cheap, I'd look at DiModell. I have one of their carbon fiber straps and like it a lot.

    Here mine Zenith class 6...

    Great watch, Godfather.
