    That is sweet.

    (didn't "spoiler" it because it deserves to be seen again.)

    You're having more fun at work that I am. (we have a strict "no guns" policy where I work.)

    I'm not a big Panerai fan, but I have to say that I like this one.

    What size is your wrist stitches? I wanna get a panny homage (broke college student) but with a 6.75'' wrist I'm not sure I could pull it off.

    Partagasiv,

    I had the ultra thin on my wrist a month ago and loved it. I loath my dress shirt getting hung up on my watch, how does your perform in this manner?

    Congrats on a very cool Nautilus! If you mostly do office work it should be durable enough for you. My Dad used a Nautilus as a daily wearer and he worked in an office and he never had issues with it. However, if you are really concerned about durability and if you are tough on watches be careful with that. It's very far from durable compared to a Sub. A friend who had a Nautilus as a daily wearer and was very tough on watches sold his as it just wasn't durable enough for him. It just doesn't stand up to hard knocks like a Rolex (understandably). Every two years or some after all the abuse he put it through in the kitchen of his restaurant, it would start acting up, go in for repairs and it would cost about $2k for the repairs. After 3 or 4 instances he tired of the repairs and costs & sold it.

    Best regards,
    Dino

    Cool photo with the Sig. Take a basic pistol course, you will get over your fear of guns, learn a lot, and you might have some fun. My wife took a basic pistol course at a local gun club and she had a great time. She even turned out to be a very good shot!

    I think you should. A fear of an inanimate object is irrational at best and dangerous at worst. Choose to fear criminal with guns, or ordinary people with guns, or the gun laws where you live. All depending on your personal beliefs and political leanings. But fear what you know, not what you don't.

    If I was working at a jewelry shop (or anything else at a high risk of robbery), I would be ready to shoot, as most robbers around here are eastern block and don't give a fuck.

    There was a small watch shop owner, who shot some robbers years ago after being robbed 7 times, even though guns are illegal here, he got of with only the gun charges.
