    You would get worse--silence. Then, perhaps, an in depth post from Apropos about how the dial, hands, crown, date wheel, and lugs are all not original. :)

    Name change is always an option.

    Lemania (and Lemania-based chronographs) - for the win! Here's one on the wrist:

    Hard to beat that sexy (Lemania-based) back!

    You know, I have to say, the more I look at that IWC, the more I dislike it. For me it strays a little too far outside of the Portuguese aesthetic. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful watch, but it is looking less and less like a deck watch.

    Newcomer - is that your Galapagos? I had one for about a year and it loved it. Never had a problem with the rubber. Curious as to what happened to it.. It's not a 10K watch by the by..
    I would kill for the IWC 3786: [​IMG]
    A nice price. Looks solid. Aesthetically not a fan of this style at all, but to each his own. If this is what impresses you, then I can see why PAMs hold no place in your heart, and there's nothing wrong with that.
    Stitch - I love this new Port! I only wish they kept the hour and minute hands in the heated blue steel. HEATED BLUE STEEL??! not again. In the meantime I'll make do with the OG: [​IMG]

    Probably the most affordable way to get an original watch with a Lemania chrono would be the Tutima Bund Watches, Sinn 142, Omega Speedy Marks, and the Fortis Cosmonaut. I'm personally fascinated by center minute chronos and have been watching these. Probably shouldn't have even posted this.

    In other news, I have a Speedy Pro coming, should arrive tomorrow.

    Negative ghostrider. Some guy on WUS posted about it (http://forums.watchuseek.com/f350/iwc-galapagos-aquatimer-poorly-constructed-543168.html). Supposedly this has happened to several people. And my bad on the price, for some reason or another I thought it was a bit more pricey!

    Somewhat off-topic to help recover from that smashed piece that Belligero just posted. Here's "Arnold Schwarzenegger driving" - haha:


    P.S. I believe he is wearing a Rolex. So this is not completely off-topic for TWAT.

    P.P.S. This is completely off-topic, but...Happy 21st birthday today to Kate Upton! I love how blue her eyes are in this picture.

    I think belligero is trying to say we need more Kate Upton. Yeah, the eyes are really the first thing that draw me in...

    Amazing that she is three years my junior, and way more woman than I could handle.

    Never been a fan of the Rolex day/date, but I think this is great (it even has the day in my mother tongue) so I placed a low'ish bit for it.

    Didn't get it though; it sold for $3K.
