    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I really want to exhaust US-based/non-NATO style possibilities before moving to other countries and NATO straps.

    stitch - they are permanently attached.

    i see. i would recommend sending a PM to dereks. he was mad into straps (and, incidentally, strap-ons, but that is another matter entirely), and might have some good ideas.

    good luck !

    Stitchy - well, I don't blame you. Very classic lines and a nice clean look. Lovely.

    apropos, clearly this is a rule that is prudent and wise, and that I have personally failed miserably to apply.

    Funny enough, I am actually in Delaware. I haven't seen Miss Delaware yet though.

    And I am with you on that one. I kind of straddle you and Dino (in regards to this issue). But honestly, I tried the Lange 1 Moonphase on my wrist, and to say that I was moved by it was a huge understatement. I know that it is what I want on my wrist at one point in my life.

    If only it did not have those darn lumed hands. Just kidding!

    And I agree that the GO Pano offers an incredibly fantastic value. I prefer the Lange, but I really enjoy the GO. My only qualm with the GO was the case... it seemed a bit slab sided, and a tad imbalanced with the ultra thin bezel.

    And Stitchy, I love the IWC, although I am a bit confused with the IWC and International Watch Company text. I guess it marks a transition period? What kind of price range?

    Also, some fun posts here! I have really enjoyed the Breguet love.

    Quote:Maybe the GO could be Miss West Virginia...sort of cross eyed, missing a front tooth, and with a handlebar mustache...but feel free to go for what you like. Just kidding. While the GO offers a good value and a "family resemblance," I stand by my earlier statements regarding the GO.

    If money was not an issue I would own the GO panomaticlunar and the Regular Lange 1. As far as the case of the GO I agree, but it fits GO IMO.

    I've heard Lange makes an okay watch.

    And since we're doing comparables, I would prefer a 99.1 to a Stowa MO (and maybe even an 1815 over a MO if you twisted my arm).

    I wouldn't want to twist your arm. Maybe just send some subliminal messages "1815, 1815....1815."
