    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.
    well... if you end up hating the size too... you know you have an (online) acquaintance who's always willing to help!

    My new watch (way below the price of all the others in this thread, as always): [​IMG] I don't know why, but I really wanted a power reserve. Less than $300 new.

    No idea.

    I believe the company may be owned by Seiko.

    elguapolongo, do you shave your arms?
    - No.. Just an ASHIN thing, though funny enough I do shave my legs as road cycling is my preferred form of physical training.

    The PAM power reserve & GMT are nice. I must admit to warm up to PAM's [​IMG] (SF is SUCH a bad influence [​IMG] ) Thanks for sharing, BTW you stil need that formal watch may I sugest a Calatrava ...

    Great collection, zippy.

    I never really understood having multiple Luminors but they all look nice.

    You have to get over the unique shape of the Luminor case to reach the second stage of Paneristism and start buying more than one watch in each case style. If you think about it, would you wonder why people may buy multiple watches with a round 40mm case? Probably not.

    Once you get past the stage where the case shape defines the watch, you can appreciate the different dials (black, brown, white, carbon fiber, hobnail...), functions (PR, GMT...) and metals/finishes (PVD, titanium, steel). Not to mention destro cases as well.
