    Tack, but it looks like it's EU only. :confused:

    Also, the only one I saw that might fit the bill had a better yellow but still a really dark blue.

    I would worry about service - if any of them actually told the time!

    Neither one of them has hands - it is just a movement. The second one doesn't even show off the movement - it has a fully opaque case.

    I mean, just because it doesn't show time, does not mean that the tourby won't need servicing I think! I guess time does become less important though haha.

    I know, from personal experience, that he has shipped international before.

    That said, try this, which is a little different, but the right colours - http://www.ukwatchstrap.co.uk/nato-watch-strap-blue-yellow-FL29.html


    Ugh, an (expensive) exercise in pointlessness.

    Been a lot of love here recently for the Speedy, so I thought I would add a little of my own:

    Speedy on black leather is so good.

    I just sent my Oris worldtimer to be fixed bc the quickset date is not working. I miss it and I'm in Hong Kong so I'm surrounded by watches. I am in love with the jlc master geographic. I've never spent that much on a watch... And I'm a little reluctant to pull the trigger. Anyone an owner that would care to sway me one way or the other?

    Never owned the Master Geo... but there is not much better than JLC for the price. If you want a world timer, and do not want to spend as much money... take a gander at the Nomos Weltzeit (not actually a world timer, but then I am not sure that Oris is a true world timer as well?). I also think that Montblanc has a GMT world timer or two.

    Love the Master Control Series generally, but do not like the alternate crown at 10 o clock OR the lack of a full city ring on the Master Geographic. Personally, I am waiting for a redesign of the Master World Geographic.

    It is now discontinued, and its easy to see why (its hideous)--however, I would love to see them clean the hell out of it in a re-issue

    Alternatively, check out the Frederique Constant World Timer, or the NOMOS Zurich Weltzeit which are more affordable and available now.

    I've never owned a Master Geographic, but I've handled one several times. IMHO its one of the easiest to use most functional world time watches. I do prefer the old version as I thought the dial worked a little better for dressier occasions if one is traveling on business. The newer dial is a bit bolder and sportier. I'm generally not a fan of world time watches, but the Master Geographic is a great watch. If I traveled more for business its the world time watch I would choose. Good luck and hope it works out for you.

    I think this is truly spectacular. I never thought a perpetual calendar would be (somewhat) attainable for me, but in steel, this is really lovely and I want it badly. Fits a really nice gap in my small collection -- I have the Submariner LV; Reverso Tribute 1931; a PAM 183 Radiomir; and Royal Oak 15400. Time to start saving my pennies. Thoughts, fellas?
