Still in pursuit of a full gold piece. After trying a few day dates I'm starting to feel they might be too bold (as an identifiable icon) for my taste. I had the rose gold aqua terra on my radar as well, but now I've stumbled upon this 38mm constellation. What do you folks think of this guy (assuming too that I could get it at a pretty deep discount...):

I mean, do you like it? Isn't that what matters?

Personally, I think it looks atrocious, but that's just me. Who cares what I think?!

Not a fan personally. I understand your sentiment regarding the Day-Date as I have the same hangup. I’ve been thinking about an Omega Speedmaster in YG or RG.

Sold my Breitling and Seiko Tuna and finally saved up enough for my all time grail ..the newer ceremic planetocean (43mm).
Picked up a mint pre-owned from a reseller on WatchRecon (all papers, warranty card, etc).

Have owned this for 3 weeks now and it's runnijng like 2 secs fast. Very impressed !!

Right. I can't bring myself to have a full gold speedy - just too big in that metal for me. I think I'm leaning toward 38, aqua terra, but in no rush, so...

Maybe it's just me, but gold versions of SS models always take a bath... unless you get a model that only comes in precious metal.

Well, you see, this is kind of a watch thread, so just as a basic premise posting a watch and asking for thoughts on that watch is basically the prime function - especially since the comments are not meant to be constrained to "what you like" but rather: have you seen the watch in real life? have you put one on? how does the bracelet feel. how does the dial catch light? How does the rose gold compare to other brands? etc...

Ok, then. I think that watch looks like a pile of shit and has so many ugly features that I wouldn't wear it if it was free.

Really dislike this one. In its original form in the 1980s, with the flat bezel and slimmer profole, it was a rather interesting luxury sports watch (I tried it on years ago). I think it still looked better in all steel or steel and gold. However, once they revamped it, made it larger, chunkier, and gave it much bolder side accent pieces they ruined it, at least in my eyes.

Keep searching, you'll find something.

Charming and helpful as always...
I mean he could have been a bit more tactful, but even under the "different strokes for different folks" line of philosophy of buy what you like, I don't disagree...
