    RP What a coincidence. I ran across a pic of your 9300 on a bracelet on TZ, and it inspired me to go back to this: (forgive the crappy pic) [​IMG] I love it on the strap, but wanna give it a week on the bracelet for something different. Also, I've been having a deep introspective debate with myself as to "If I could only own one watch.." and in almost all scenarios the 9300 wins (decent WR for me, casual yet sporty, and if I HAD to - would wear it with a suit) To answer your question - take the Speedy. Bracelet works best, but I like that kevlar strap option.

    Excellent point Dino. It will be the last piece of wedding attire I put on for the big day which will make it even more special.

    Unusually cool day down here in the South. Nice day for a cigar and bourbon. Pam 112 today.

    JLC MC today. Non quickset date movements can be rather irritating..

    Tell me about it. I have two 70s era rolexes, neither have quickset dates. Neither does my new Seiko because of the GMT hand. Further, Seiko warns against using a winder with the Spring Drive, which is why they all have power reserve indicators.

    Very Nice.

    Yeah but well worth it, especially when it's something special.

    Picked up this 16550 a bit impulsively this weekend. Pretty special watch as far as I can tell, I just couldn't walk away from it.
