    I would kill for that Lange Up / Down.

    What is the case size - 37mm?

    Yep, 36 or 37mm depending upon how you squint at the ruler.

    I'd be afraid of snapping a 38mm Ultra Thin in half.

    I'm not a watch guy, but this is spectacular. Pretty much all my favorites in one pic.

    +1, seriously fine collection Zippy.

    Can you post your address, the times you won't be at home, and your safe and alarm codes, if applicable? [​IMG] I'll leave the Paneri's - they are too big for my skinny wrists . . . .

    Perhaps I may be exhibiting some obsessive Panerai behavior.
    There are a couple Destros behind the white dial but nothing with a carbon fiber dial.
    You can see a brown dial Ti Base peeking out in the middle.
    I used to be more obsessive with changing straps but for some reason a lot of them
    ended up on plain black straps.
    The 40mm belongs to my wife.

    Here's the full extent of my collection. Nothing too flashy but all good value for the money. Clockwise from the top we have Limes Pharo Automatic L.E., Oris TT1 diver, Chronomatic Explorer (eBay brand, the look is that of the Steve McQueen Rolex Explorer from the 70's) and finally the Sinn 203 Arktis on a kevlar strap.

    Thanks, it is my favourite. Can't wear it with suits to work though so I am hoping to figure out what my next acquisition to wear with suits could be. The Limes is OK and what I most often wear to work, beautifully well built for the price, but it's a little lacking in personality.

    depends on your situation, but no, thats pretty bad. Definately not for formal, but if your summer wear is brown, that would work.

    I'm considering one, too but not sure if it'll look good on my 6.5" wrist.

    I know big watches aren't very popular here but I love them. I'm a big guy (6'6", 275lbs) so they fit me a little better than some people that wear them. Anyways, I just picked one of these up a few weeks ago. Breitling Super Avenger [​IMG]

    Hey, if you like it, get it. Seriously. I, however, do not like it. It reminds me of those 1970s Pulsars.
