    Thanks for more eye candy! The Autavia is definitely one of the coolest vintage Heuers. The Breitling is cool too with its very 70s design.

    Since it seems to be Chronograph- a- paloozah around here, below are a few of mine.

    And the Pasha 950 with cal 205 which is based on an F.Piguet 1185 movement.

    (still drooling, though - it is even more awesome on the wrist, and with that nice shirt, surprisingly un-pimpish!)

    Daytonas are awesome, in any configuration. My 116520, modded with a dial for a white gold Daytona. Not for the purists, but I'm not one of those ...

    Also: I'm a sucker for any chrono. Two subdials, three subdials, you name it. A complication that does not require a winder is nice, I have to many watches that spend time off the wrist ... My favourites are 3-6-9 chronos, I much prefer them to the 6-9-12s (like the 7750).

    Hehe...hope Dino has a sense of humour; such a thing is not always a given among SF members!

    There is something about that black-on-yellow gold that makes me wide-eyed and mad like Gollum for his ring...I feel similar about almost anything in rose gold, but this particular watch just gets to me. I just never considered it...wearable. And now I admit, I was wrong. Which means I have a new problem: I really want it! My preciousssss....

    Dino944, that's a formidable army of chronos you've got there. Really, really awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    That's actually really cool. Or hot. Man, I can't make up my mind if it's cool or hot!

    I have been consumed by this urge several times over the last few months...... I am hoping my current collection and much slimmer bank account quell the fire for a while.............

    Maybe. I. Should. Stop. Checking. This. Thread... <clicks away from SF, only to click back in a few minutes later> [​IMG]

    Hey Stitches,

    I know you have a 112 too so you might like these:

    Here is the description:
    The MAT 49 Strap is made from Vintage French MAT 49 submachine gun magazine pouches. As far as I can determine, these pouches date from the mid 1950's to the early 1960's. (Greg Stevens)

    First of all, nice cufflinks. Secondly, I had no idea that Pasha chrono had such a sexy back / nice engine! That's a sharp movement.
