    Thanks, it is my favourite. Can't wear it with suits to work though so I am hoping to figure out what my next acquisition to wear with suits could be. The Limes is OK and what I most often wear to work, beautifully well built for the price, but it's a little lacking in personality.

    depends on your situation, but no, thats pretty bad. Definately not for formal, but if your summer wear is brown, that would work.

    wow...that master ultra thin is...well, ultra thin.

    awesome collection, zippy. I just got my first PAM...a 40mm PAM 48. good for my skinny wrists.


    Post some pics. [​IMG]

    I'm considering one, too but not sure if it'll look good on my 6.5" wrist.

    I know big watches aren't very popular here but I love them. I'm a big guy (6'6", 275lbs) so they fit me a little better than some people that wear them. Anyways, I just picked one of these up a few weeks ago. Breitling Super Avenger [​IMG]

    Hey, if you like it, get it. Seriously. I, however, do not like it. It reminds me of those 1970s Pulsars.

    +2. If you think it fits your style, do it. But I wouldn't buy it--too over-the-top.
