    Wow...that is one MASSIVE watch! Very cool. Definitely a really interesting watch to have in your collection! Thanks for supplying us with some of its specs and a photos. I saw a small black and white photo of one years ago, but without some form of wrist shot, I really could not tell its dimensions or how it fits on the wrist. Thanks again.

    As requested. The Speedmaster 125. I forgot how heavy this thing is. I am sorry I can't get a clearer picture of the dial. It is really quite nice. AT least you can get a sense of the scale and the overal look.

    Wow! Thanks for some eye candy. Love the wrist shot where we can see case thickness. Even the box is very cool. You have a great watch, enjoy it.

    Thanks. I finally figured out how to macro focus with this camera. I put away the 125, but here is the Heuer Autavia and the Breitling Transocean.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I did a poor job of getting the colors on the Breitling. It is a blue dial.

    There seem to be a lot of Daytonas, I may join the party and post a pic some day.

    Thanks for more eye candy! The Autavia is definitely one of the coolest vintage Heuers. The Breitling is cool too with its very 70s design.

    (still drooling, though - it is even more awesome on the wrist, and with that nice shirt, surprisingly un-pimpish!)

    Daytonas are awesome, in any configuration. My 116520, modded with a dial for a white gold Daytona. Not for the purists, but I'm not one of those ...

    Also: I'm a sucker for any chrono. Two subdials, three subdials, you name it. A complication that does not require a winder is nice, I have to many watches that spend time off the wrist ... My favourites are 3-6-9 chronos, I much prefer them to the 6-9-12s (like the 7750).

    Hehe...hope Dino has a sense of humour; such a thing is not always a given among SF members!

    There is something about that black-on-yellow gold that makes me wide-eyed and mad like Gollum for his ring...I feel similar about almost anything in rose gold, but this particular watch just gets to me. I just never considered it...wearable. And now I admit, I was wrong. Which means I have a new problem: I really want it! My preciousssss....

    Dino944, that's a formidable army of chronos you've got there. Really, really awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    That's actually really cool. Or hot. Man, I can't make up my mind if it's cool or hot!

    I have been consumed by this urge several times over the last few months...... I am hoping my current collection and much slimmer bank account quell the fire for a while.............

    Maybe. I. Should. Stop. Checking. This. Thread... <clicks away from SF, only to click back in a few minutes later> [​IMG]
