    Hoping the duck is cooked perfectly as a result of that fantastic chronograph...and some culinary skills never hurt either.

    Alas, I already have a Chrono in the form of the Speedy Pro. As much as I love Chronos, I want just a bit more variety :). Being able to dress the watch I buy down at the end of the day is not really much of a priority to me though! More of a plus, than anything!

    Good point! I should do it for the sake of the forvm!


    I will definitely let you know when I get to Philly. We could pop by Govberg for sure. I don't know if the purchase of both is even remotely in the books though, unfortunately! And interesting observation about the MUT Moon--I guess I always thought my JLC MC could be dressed down fairly easy, but I thought that was mainly attributed to the large bezel.


    Yes, I definitely think the MUT Moon is more classic and objectively more appealing. But there is something about the RDM that I always found charming. I think I prefer the former version and its quirkiness, but the latter definitely has its charms. The new case is glorious.


    :devil:

    Also, to continue the theme: Speedy Pro and Halibut... not quite its natural environment!

    Surely the proper companion for a halibut is a SeaMaster?


    From a purely selfish and voyeuristic point of view, I'm looking forward to this: considering the level of awesomeness you have accrued from zero in a mere three months, the fact that you described this "itch" elsewhere as a "possible end-game watch", indicates it might be pretty spectacular, and certainly in the eyes of cheap bums like me. So, thanks in advance!

    I think the RDM is a very special watch, and will bring more pleasure over the long term than the MUTM. The RDM can also take a tan strap with aplomb, and something the MUTM cannot do.

    Hah, mimo, you are such an enabler! That's a compliment, by the way. I guess that goes for a bunch of other SFers, especially the ones posting in this thread.

    But for now, ssssh... I'm hunting. Don't want to scare away the prey. If I don't post as often over the next week or so, well, it's because I'm hunting. [​IMG] <-- (Attempt at "Batman")
