    I see that little splash of red and can't help wondering: why would you buy the new model? [​IMG]

    PG, Great watch, and great find! But imho those do not go well with your attire- you're correct with what you said in TZ- they're better with weekend wear.
    - yeah, but you know I like to push the envelope.. [​IMG]
    I'd get tennis elbow from wearing that fucker. Do most large watches like this have a smaller size available?
    - yes, but not the same.. IWC Mk 10 through to 13 or 14 now.. - or there are some other German makers who do smaller sizes..
    Wow....it takes a special man to sport that!
    - thank you..

    - different strokes for different folks.. Surprised you didn't mention the missing 9 or cut off 2 & 4, smaller font or cleaner dial [​IMG]

    I like 70s Heuers! [​IMG] Here represented by Autavia 11630 (auto), Autavia 73663 (manual) and a manual flyback chrono used by F-104 Starfighter pilots in the Royal Norwegian Airforce. Vintage is the best, style and history!

    Grail watch. (Well, me being Norwegian, and all.) Tried this monster on the other day: AP ROO gold. It weighs in at nearly a pound! [​IMG]
