    Nice watch, but not quite a dressy watch.
    And again, huge case for your tiny wrist.

    Very well said.

    I still shed a slight tear every time I come across a picture of this one on my computer (or a forum/ebay auction where someone's stolen my image).

    It's no Patek but was a solid tool watch and one of the last years they still had lug holes (which actually made it a tool watch, IMO). It went to a good home and I get first dibs if the new owner ever wants to sell it.

    I didn't wear this got it as a present from my father on christmas. Maybe will exchange for some nice IWC with leather strap. Since I really have my AP that's pretty big.

    Yeah that's really quite a shame. It's a beautiful watch.

    Thanks, guys

    Mine was a wedding gift from my wife's family. I gifted the Hometime to my brother when he graduated business school.

    Nothing out of control as far as quality, actually on the very low end in the world of timepieces. However, I thought it was really sharp so I asked for it for Christmas and Santa decided to hook me up today :p

    I have always liked pannys, but i thought they where too big! Now they have come out with a more proper sized models, just when I can't afford it :-(
