big A - i am a fran of both of those.
I saw one in person and the blue seemed slightly darker than it looks in that pic. That said, I still hate that model - never understood the appeal of a 50/50 bezel, especially on a 24 hour clock. I don't mind it if the bi-color ring is small, but when it's that big it seems excessive.
this one was gone as soon as it arrived. click for bigger.

They seem to be pretty popular, at least I know I really like mine.
if only that one i posted landed on my wrist. another time maybe.
Sweet LV Here's something a little less common around there parts
This prompted me to check their website, where I found this beauty Omega...
Classic watch. The green gives it a nice pop of colour. I like that alot.
love that IWC
That's a (badly done) dial refinish. Wrong fonts, uneven printing - look at the uneven minute markers.
If its declared as refinished and priced accordingly, then I have no problem with it OK. The problem is that many sellers surreptitiously refinish or franken a watch without declaring it, and then charge primo prices.
Vintage Omegs are a minefield if you don't know what you should be looking for!!
Interesting piece here, announced recently via TZ.
Patek split seconds chronograph. One of a kind. In TITANIUM. With a distinctly sporty (sportier) look than I've ever seen in the more traditional 5004s (even the limited 5004A's in steel with baton markers didn't look like this).
This limited (to ONE) piece will probably fetch a price that's a multiple of current secondary market prices for the 5004, even if 5004s trade anywhere from the mid-$200s to the low-$300s.
Pricing and stuff aside, what do you guys think of this piece?

Beautiful Omega! I can't wait to get home to this baby that's waiting on me.
Moloch38 - that would make me hurry home - nice!
I hate to say this, because in content and layout it's pretty much perfection. But it's absolutely fucking hideous. I dont much love contrast subdials anyway (and I include collectible Daytonas in that!). The red second hand seems just a tad cheap and obvious. The strap is an act of Casio-eque ugliness, however beautifully-crafted it might be, and titanium? Well, titanium's fine, and I'm all for novelty and variety. But was it so heavy and huge in the first place? And if you're going to make a "sporty" version, was motherfucking skateboarding the first sport that came to mind? How about thinking of something like, say, vintage car rallies or tall ships racing, or real tennis or cricket? Where is the CLASS?!
Ugh. It's like a plastic shoe. No.
Not that I feel strongly about it or anything...-----
It would be interesting to see that PP without the sub-dials. I like the black alternating stripes face, the white out rim and the inner rim with the 5-sec increments listed. Not sure about the watch overall. Has a lot going on.
