    What's wrong with a manual wind movement? Having only autos would be boring IMO.

    Very nice. Looks bigger than I pictured. I would be interested to see what a mid brown strap looks like as well.

    this. played a strong factor in my panny choice. also, especially with an exhibition back, its nice to have both with and without rotor.

    You are IM of PP perpetuals! The temptation to address you as "Imelda" from now on, is almost irresistible!

    +!

    Funny, I was looking at Nomos after a mention on here a couple of weeks ago, and picked out that exact model and colour as my object of desire. Congratulations and enjoy - I'm quite envious! But I'd leave the black cordovan strap; it looks awesome.

    Unless something strikes you more when shopping ... I'd go with the Tank. I've always been smitten with them when I see them in the flesh. There's just something about classic about them.

    Much like Cylon said, I really like the Reverso because of its history. Most models don't sit on my wrist as well as a Tank, but its just such a special watch that I have to have one someday.

    The Tank Solo, is a great option. It will fit well within your parents' budget, its an iconic design, yet its very understated and can easily be worn for any occasion. I picked up a Tank in 2008 and its one of my favorite watches. It looks great with a suit, and it still works well with a sweater and jeans. In addition, if most of your watches are or have been round, its a nice change of pace to have something rectangular. I may be a bit biased [​IMG]

    Not the exact model, but some Tank P0rn for you to ponder.

    The nicest Carrier I have seen as well. You can post pictures of it whenever you want Dino.

    Thanks Gents. Glad you enjoyed the photos. It was part of their Privee Collection. They only made 200 in rose gold and 50 in platinum. Stitchy...I guess its twice as nice!

    Now for some peer pressure...come on Newcomer...you know you want a Tank!!! Just kidding, wishing you luck on whatever you decide.

    My favorite from your list. I almost bought one of these before discovering OuJ.
