    Out of curiosity, where'd you have the plating job done?

    I'll start

    Panerai PAM210, modified with 18k gold plating on hands

    I'm afraid that for all three of those, I'd only get a rather old used 911. [​IMG]

    I like this one but I also think that classic AirKing looks great with a black leather strap.

    Absolutely agreed! I'm not generally a fan of the Rolex aesthetic, but the AirKing is a beautiful watch. A black, brown, tan, navy, or dark green strap would be stunning on a SS AirKing.

    Wow, this thread is still going on. Here is another contribution - a Paketa 24 hour military "world time" watch.

    [​IMG]

    It has a most useless 22 hour power reserve. Did you know that "Paketa" is "Patek" in Russian? Uhhh... Just kidding [​IMG] ...

    Do IWCs come in diameters smaller than 40mm? I have a small wrist and am looking for something under 40mm.

    Sure. For example, for a sports watch, Ingenieur mid-size is just 34mm, Mark XV is 38mm. For a dress watch, Portofino are generally 38mm
