    Lol Anyway, I am a Rolex "fan" and I don't particularly like Montblanc pens. I actually prefer Dunhill pens.

    Don't get me wrong, MB does some amazing things with their limited editions, though most people don't even consider these and instead focus on their meisterstuck line and starwalker.

    I have owned a number of MBs over the years, and still own two, a Chopin FP and a Generations ballpoint, both gifts from my wife...and while they are "good" pens, they both aren't nearly as good as a few others I have owned, all of which cost alot less...namely Namiki, Pelikan, Aurora, and Cross.

    I usually find Rolex guys also have a tendency to like other "similar" products, Montblanc, Harley Davidson, Mercedes, Bose, Armani, Ferragamo....mainstream brands that are often bested by slightly lower cost competitors

    I thought long and hard before I bought my latest watch. I just couldn't bring myself to buy a Rolex (and I didn't have enough money to consider looking at a Daytona!). I've previously bought Breitling's so it's nice to have a change.

    a great looking watch with a great story. i'm not a fan of the apollo 11 emblem but that is just a personal preference. i just steer toward simplicity and minimalism. congrats on the purchase, it should serve you well!

    +1

    I prefer stylish simplicity as well, which is why the basic Seamaster is my favourite watch.

    The Seamaster is an icon watch, but I actually prefer this mid-size time-only Railmaster -- a sports watch on a bracelet and a dress watch on leather strap . Staying with simplicity theme, the Explorer is my favorite Rolex. At less than 1/2 the price of the Explorer, the Railmaster is the better value IMO. Twotone [​IMG]

    As someone who owned a K series Explorer, A series datejust, and now a White/Blue Aqua Terra I would agree...the Omega cost me new less than my A Datejust, and a good deal less than the Explorer and is better in virtually every way.

    Could you please explain how the Omega is "better in virtually every way" to the Rolex?
