    This is my watch, a Longines Hydroconquest, its not much compared to some of your watches but its pretty special for an 18 year old. Also I think its got a pretty good balance between subtleness and shinyness (if you get me), its not in your face but people do notice it, which is appropriate for my age. Also I think its got quite a manly feel and look to it which I like :)

    Also was shopping the other day and tried on this beauty, the bracelet compliments the chunky face surprisingly well, I think it looks quite unique because of this :p

    Quote:Bawhawhawhaw, this really made me laugh. What's this? I'm actually developing a sense of temperance or patience? Sacre bleu! Yeah, the issue I have with the 5059 is that while it has its lovely aspects, there are also SOME trade-offs (the "15" and "17" cut off, the enamel-like dial with Roman numerals being cool but conceivably looking flat versus the more "decorated" / "sculpted" batons you can find in the 3940 (cheaper than the 5059) or the mega-expensive perpetual calendar chronos). At these price points, you SHOULDN'T have to think about trade-offs, IMHO!

    Quote:Thought you'd latch on to that "eclectic" use of fonts! The world time line has not yet captured my fancy (my wallet whispers thanks), but the 5110P is certainly a lovely piece. You are right: if I want to avoid temptation I really shouldn't put myself in its way! Visited "my dealer" (like that, mimo?) to add a link to my wife's watch/bracelet and of course he brought out some goodies...

    Moo is doing it right. It's a well-known fact that the Speedy is incredibly accurate for timing NASA rocket burns as well as hayrides.

    Quote:It certainly has an appealing heft to it. It's close to 13mm in terms of height, so it has greater presence on the wrist than, say, a 3940 or even a Nautilus with its larger case size.

    We talked a bit before about the Nomos Weltzeit. Would be a fantastic watch for someone that switch time zones a lot - though I'd much prefer it with blue hands!

    Maybe it's about time you obsessed over another brand? I'd personally like to see more Langes and VCs. Just saying. [​IMG]
