    Yes, I think that would be quite nice as well :).

    And stitchy... go with the tan strap! I think tan straps look great on Reversos!

    thanks for all the input guys! i thought the strap was only in black, thanks for showing me the other options, sdolina.

    my panerai strap is tan, and i think it lends to a less formal look. i use the reverso with my dressier fits, like suits or a somber SC, so i think i would go dark brown. ill keep you posted of course!

    ps - sdolina, let me know if you find any good places to kop. also, did you post about this topic on a watch forum? i think i saw your avatar in a forum conversation about this when i was looking into it.

    Going with the all-time design favourite today. I dig the fat sérifs on this insert.

    Very, very cool. I am digging the GMT a lot. I kind of want one now. I am finally starting to crave a Rolex a bit. The temptation is not even remotely close to coming to fruition (I am actually very content with where I am right now, how odd), but I think that would be my next choice.

    Keep it coming!

    For my taste, I'd take an explorer II over a gmt master. I suppose the ceramic gmt master is pretty nice

    Nice SMP beowolf.

    I love my stainless version (2254.50)....but never have owned any titanium pieces, Omega or otherwise.



    This is not today's watch, but here's a pic with some red and blue action:

    The blue/red vintage GMT is a classic! I had forgotten that Luca has worn one. IIRC, now deceased clothing designer, Gianfranco Ferre also wore a vintage "Pepsi" GMT.
    Titanium is a very cool for a watch! I love the way it looks and feels.
    I've owned each, and both are great. My only issue with the current GMT, I just wish it had fewer polished surfaces.
    Nice choice.
