    Beautiful ! Congrats and enjoy!

    Love the GP cushion shaped chrono!

    Very nice Ex2 ! I really like the black dial version.

    Love the dark dial on your vintage Seamaster!

    Wow, some great watches gents. Hope you are enjoying them. Its a rather drab rainy day here, so I'll share a photo from this past weekend when I was enjoying sunshine and seafood at an outdoor seaside cafe with Mrs. Dino.

    Thanks for the comments and compliments, guys! There is a nice black 37mm RDM on the used market right now for a pretty good price. 37-39mm is the perfect case size to me - I think it's where Frederique Constant really dropped the ball when making their own Slimline Moonphase - the MUT Moon 39 is just a cut above.

    I try and avert my eyes when someone mentions Lange - can't afford to fall in love ;)

    Cool Seamaster. Vintage omegas have always been on my shortlist. Shoutout to the hairless asian arms #HAArmy

    Dino, that's from the CPCP collection right? Let's see the back!

    Hi MZH, very nice Tank Basculante! A friend of mine has one and loves it. Yes, mine is the Tank XL from the CPCP collection. As you may recall, this has a rather unusual rectangular movement, which was a big selling point for me on this piece. Please excuse my rather amateurish photo skills. Enjoy!

    Boy that is a stunner. Such a shame they did away with the CPCP stuff, it was a big selling point on Cartier IMO.

    I want this watch so hard.

    New Seadweller is awesome too, but I've had a watch-crush on the modern Freccione ever since the crown released it.

    The new explorers are nice although it takes time getting used to the cartoonishly big hands, I'm thinking to pick up the polar one soon.
    On a different note, I got my DSSD and have been wearing it for two days now. It did take me a full day to get used to the heft and thickness, I think I am still getting used to the weight but it is a very nice watch and I enjoy looking at it throughout the day!

    Thank you. I agree 100%. Actually, I have a few friends who specifically collect Cartier's CPCP products and have no interest in their current fine watchmaking collection. I really miss their CPCP watches, and may try to acquire a few more pieces in the future.

    Certainly feels indestructible, and finds itself on my wrist for all sorts of non-beach occasions that I didn't expect. But for $1000, I'd maybe for the Stowa Prodiver (which I almost did, until I got the Monster while I was waiting then figured it was all the dive watch I need for now).

    Unfortunately, Dino doesn't like it, so you'd be facing TWAT excommunication. Is it this or the FPJ? Seem you have a blue fixation going on. I sympathise entirely.

    Saw the Journe last night at the NOMOS event. It really is a stunning watch. The dial is just fantastic.

    Thanks guys. The Seiko Monster seems like a decent enough option. Any thought on that compared to the Citizen Promaster Diver?

    The quartz on the monster scratches pretty easily though :/

    Mine hasn't yet, but then at $200 part of the joy is not worrying about it too much.

    BH, the Monster is a big, heavy mechanical watch that feels like it's made from old tank parts and with a surprisingly attractive bracelet. I don't know anything about the other one.

    Thanks Nuke! [​IMG]

    I like that Lange a lot. Not sure if I think its worth what they go for, but I like that one. So, no danger of excommunication for Nuke, hell I'm sure I could make an exception to excommunication for Nuke, just cause he's Nuke...even if he gets an FPJ. As for FPJ, I liked the looks of their simpler model, but I wouldn't buy one. For that kind of money there a several other watches I'd prefer...but that's just my 2 cents.

    Dino dislikes that Lange? Meine Gute!

    Well, for what it is worth, even though I greatly respect your opinion Mimo, I still do wear jeans :slayer:.

    I think I would make a similar type of exception for that Lange :)
