    I like that FP Journe in your avatar :drool:

    I think the ability to have your watch go unnoticed is partly a function of who you are around. A lot of Lange's, for example, would go unnoticed by a lot of people, but if you were around a bunch of WIS, you'd probably have to make sure the watch doesn't become submerged in all the drool.

    :slayer: I really like Sinn and wish I didn't sold my Sinn 756.
    I can't said that about my Rolex. But people do get confused my SD with the ND Sub a lot.
    Speaking of which, I just got it back from serviced!

    the only think i dont like about the damasko is the day thinggy, but thats a small issue, i think the size of the D are slightly better than then S but both are like you said very stealthy for a day to day watch

    Did you really want to say "beliebt"? That means popular.

    "geliebte" would mean "beloved".

    Both are beautiful, especially that Omega. Just the right mix of parts do it for me.
