    Straight out of the pointless post coaching manual that one [​IMG]

    Constructive opinions welcome with possible other watches of a similar style to check out. I really like the late 60's Breitling Navitimer, but I'd have to wait for my father to give his up I think!


    To be fair to gld, his post was no less constructive/informative than the one to which he was responding...and you did ask what people thought of it.

    Nice combo Marrakesh. Black ostrich straps are pretty unusual. I'd like to see a better shot of the strap if you have one

    Nope, but I would if I had that kind of money to spend on a camera. The MP is gorgeous and built like a tank. Unfortunately, it's part of a dying breed.
    Leicas aren't necessarily that expensive. A new one is, but a used or vintage one can be had for under $2000.

    The top one is new. The result of a recent trade in of a platinum JLC that I had grown bored of. I also have a vintage AP that is in for service.

    Please let me know if you ever want to get rid of this watch. I think it's just about perfect as far as handwound time-only dress watches go; my only (minor) quibble is that the movement is a bit small compared to the case. I prefer it to the Lange 1815 and AP 3090.

    The watch I'm wearing today: [​IMG] An 18kt gold Omega on an ostrich strap. The dial is much more interesting than it looks in pictures.
