    I had a 359 briefly last year, loved the watch, but it always felt a bit too top heavy for me.

    Yikes, sorry about your wallet.

    Update for all because I am a vacuous and self-obsessed Gen Y-er who thinks the internet cares about and needs to know my every thought/movement...

    ...going to Bangkok/Singapore in exactly a week. Will be checking out the various watch boo-teeks when I am there. Am particularly excited about the Singapore leg of my trip.

    In particular will be viewing a few Zeniths, maybe some IWCs, definitely some Dornblueth, the along with the JLC MC RdM, and various TTR 1931 editions in the flesh.

    Which one am I most excited about? Here's a clue...

    The design is unbeatable! I think i will make this brand my last watch purchase, but I'll have to eat my own words, because the 40mm ss is around $7G's!

    I was amazed by how strong the watch culture is in Singapore and how it affects everyone.

    In the group I was working with, there was a Vacheron perpetual calendar, a PP Aquanaut and a couple of Rolexes. And none of these people were particularly wealthy.

    Shopping seems to be the national religion.

    I think the simpler PAM designs beat those hands down.

    Got my first Panerai today! I was surprised at how elegant this watch is in person. Perfect for smart/business casual wear. Some quick shots:

    Panerai design + JLC movement = winning combination
