    That new Pepsi is just wonderful. If only I had a house to sell. But $30k? I mean, there are just so many places to go with that kind of dough, right? Still, it is wonderful. Judging from the pics, they've really nailed that ceramic thing. I'm afraid (sorry to say this!) it makes the BLNR look suddenly rather dull. And the Sea-Dweller is sweet...looking forward to a line up with DSSD and Sub for proper comparison. Milgauss isn't my favourite, but I could definitely learn to love that one.

    You're beautiful today, by the way. And I have a great image of you in my mind singing your Julie Andrews tribute. That makes me happy.

    Yes. The only TWAT-approved Royal Oak Offshore is the Diver. Pretty much all of the Royal Oaks are rightly beloved, but the other Offshores are all so garish and loud. There's something a bit unnecessary and contrived about them. Even, dare I say, cheap. It would be a shame to spend serious cheese on a beautifully-engineered Audemars Piguet, and then have your plumber say "hey, cool...is that a real Hublot?". Derek S has a Diver if I remember rightly, a quick search will find wrist pics and comments. It has a serious, practical and minimalist feel that's pretty cool.

    However, if it just has to be one of those two you mentioned, I'd say the Safari. The "panda" is laughably derivative and unsightly in my view, whereas the Safari, for all it's rap video ostentatiousness, at least has its own character in my opinion. Someone else was having a guilty lust for it a while back, although he might have been Australian if I remember correctly, so bear that in mind. If he wasn't, he must be in spirit. But as I said at the time, I do get it. It's definitely fun, I just think there are so many nicer things for the money.

    If you scroll back a few pages you'll hear Dino saying bad things about this watch. And me totally lusting after it. I tried one on just last week and I've been lying awake at night thinking about it ever since. Santa loves you a lot more than he loves me, alas. I'm envious, it's a peach. :)

    I just never get tired of looking at that beauty. Last time it was the hour markers that I stared at - and this time, actually. But today I've mostly been admiring the gentle taper of the lugs and the almost liquid softness of the case shape. It's the watch that keeps on giving. Respect to your queen, King TWAT. (Or maybe...dananananananana TWAT-Man!)

    @mimo I completely agree with the new bezel and how it quiets the black and blue. Though that, to me, was the point of the black and blue, a bit more sedate and versatile combo. But, I think if I'm honest with myself, I prefer the pepsi. If it does ever make an appearance in SS without the polished center links, well, I'd have a tough time not running to an AD.

    Hey guys!

    Haven't posted here in ages with all the busyness with the various watch fairs in the last couple months and launching my CELADON brand and my upcoming Swiss hyper car watch :D, I see you've all been digesting the upcoming launches at Basel. There's going to be lots of cool new watches this year from all the major brands.

    Went to the Cleverley bespoke trunk show last week, and this is what I wore...

    Yes exactly. In isolation the BLNR is a delight, and as it's also less than a third of the price, the comparison is a little harsh. But this thread is a cruel place in such matters. :)

    I think the 1931s are less than 30mm across, and they're a decent size - also my round Omega is 35mm, so the square Squadra looks like a big monster in comparison. Fantastic pic. Julie. :)

    Thanks, gents. I like posting these BIG pics on TWAT via TapaTalk too because it helps me zero in on things like "oh, well that pic that looked so good on my small phone screen doesn't look so good blown up." And stuff like "holy crap there's water stains on the darn crystal, better wipe that off." Hah hah hah.
