    Looked at the IWC, tried it on. Great peice. Not 100% sold on the movement, heard it wobbles a bit.

    omega railmaster is black face? or does it come in white as well?

    Dornblueth & Sohn, interesting choice.

    I believe GP is a 38 MM. Could be wrong.

    Small father/son company, hand-made in-house movement, extremely high quality, and your neighbor sure won't have one!

    Excellent shop visit report.

    Whar other features are you looking for?
