    back to my previous "Rado gift from my uncle" deal.... I haven't gotten around to trying them on yet as I need to find a shop with a larger selection, but from what I've seen online the Hyperchrome seems to be pretty nice... thoughts?

    Thanks Stitchy.

    I'd take it now, though I thought, taking my wife into consideration, she'd be happier if I paid it off over time :embar:

    Is hyperchrome more of a black or graphite in person?

    yeah me too... but as a gift, hey I'm not complaining. "Neat" is good right? :happy:


    I did see one at the duty free shop at LAX.... if by graphite you mean more grey-ish then IIRC it is more "true black"

    A lot of posts to catch up on since last week; I'll do that later!

    In the mean time, thank you all so much for your kind comments on this. I thought I'd drop by quickly with a simple wrist shot. My son is delighted with his new watch, and it looks great on him! Here it is, along with the watch my father gave me:

    Not a fan, seems kinda pedestrian and I don't think the colour scheme is very successful. Since it has to be a Rado, why not go all-in?

    I have no idea when I would wear something like that, but I think it's more interesting and better realised.

    Not to revisit a topic that fellow TWAT-ters would rather leave behind, but what G-Shock is this lovely young woman wearing?

    In other news, G-shock is coming out with some metallic variants:

    Personally, I like the simple, cheaper square ones but that is just me. Still undecided as to whether I will actually pull the trigger...[​IMG]
