    I had an old Tissot automatic (PRS series, early 70s) modified for my fiancÃ[​IMG]e. She needed a robust beater. Please excuse the bad photos. Before: [​IMG] [​IMG] After: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I'll try to find a plain rubber strap for it, but it seems to be difficult to find in 12mm. I really like that it's "sterile", i.e. logo-less.

    This has been on my "to buy" list for some time. Just more than I want to spend. Plus I have had my eye on the rose gold model, which simply puts it too far out of reach.

    I like it very much. [​IMG]

    Thanks, makes 2 of us [​IMG]
    That's a Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL, the size if I remember correctly is 44m case diameter and 14mm case thickness. TBH, it looks really good on a mid sized wrist. And it looks great as a casual watch and as a sporty dress watch. Since I'm a web developer I seldom wear suits unless I'm clubbing and it looks great no matter what I'm wearing.

    [​IMG] Yep. Just so you know, I blame you.

    Bought one of the watches in LNIB condition, and both at ridiculously low prices. I lamely justified it to myself as an investment.

    I take partial responsibility, okay...

    Now, which ones did you get? Hopefully a 44mm Luminor?

    The 177 which I know you like, and the 203 (at 47mm, I was unsure of the size, but it does look quite nice). The 177 was with box and papers, but the 203 was without both but at a very very low price. Unsure of its authenticity, I took the watch to a AD, and they confirmed it was the real deal.

    Indeed [​IMG] - got it from an acquaintance who hated the size, and wanted to replace it with a AP Royal Oak. Paid nowhere close to list.
