    Very cool feature! What are the dimensions? I'd love to see a wrist shot, if you get a chance.

    Will do. Given your contributions to this thread, I owe you that and for that purpose a blackberry will do fine.

    From some random source , re dimensions:
    Here is what it looks like on someone else's wrist:

    good info, thank you. and yes, ill take either one as well. i really dont mind the cut though, i think it adds a touch of character. i could be mistaken, but i am pretty sure that i have seen watches where there are portions of numbers missing, and its done solely for artistic purposes, but i could be wrong.



    :( indeed.


    yup!

    Wow...that is one MASSIVE watch! Very cool. Definitely a really interesting watch to have in your collection! Thanks for supplying us with some of its specs and a photos. I saw a small black and white photo of one years ago, but without some form of wrist shot, I really could not tell its dimensions or how it fits on the wrist. Thanks again.

    As requested. The Speedmaster 125. I forgot how heavy this thing is. I am sorry I can't get a clearer picture of the dial. It is really quite nice. AT least you can get a sense of the scale and the overal look.

    Wow! Thanks for some eye candy. Love the wrist shot where we can see case thickness. Even the box is very cool. You have a great watch, enjoy it.

    Thanks. I finally figured out how to macro focus with this camera. I put away the 125, but here is the Heuer Autavia and the Breitling Transocean.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I did a poor job of getting the colors on the Breitling. It is a blue dial.
