    isn't it kind of a pain in the ass to tell time on that Pita?

    For you, Frills an often quoted image, but one that surely never gets old.. [​IMG]
    Why, thank you, rnguy001. I have not yet seen that picture of Charlize with her Rolex at the ball game. You just gave me another reason to peruse the world wide web for research purposes.

    I think the carbon fiber and mesh straps look best on the Zenith. Mesh gives it a kind of neat vintage look. None of the leather straps really work for me.

    Congrats! The combination of the textured dial, polished white gold markers and grey colour really give this piece a striking presence. It's always high on my list for a beach-to-boardroom "one watch" recommendation.

    This has long been my favourite thread on SF, but I have never had something to contribute until now. My humble contribution is a Stowa Marine Original Roman received from my gf. Seeing the shots I took I realize that it looks massive on my wrist, but that's just the angle more than anything.

    completely agree. Others do this very well and I think they'd dilute their brand. Better to work on strengthening what they do best. Has worked pretty well for them so far.

    Went for the flieger. Got to try it in a store and loves the simple design. Over 24 days it is around +2-3 seconds.
    The second diver one I got used in the same store for 400 usd, mint condition. Let the movement go for 3 days and the result was +15

    Looks excellent, congratulations! How large is your wrist? Mine are about 6.5", and I'm wondering if one of these would be too large.

    Also, having a tough time deciding between the Roman and the Arabic....
