    The engraving took some time, but it finally arrived:

    The engraving really adds a personal touch. Nice work.

    Very very nice.

    Thanks. Although TAG Heuer may not up there in the horological heaven, I have a special weakness for the Monaco model. It's got that special '70s feeling that I sometimes crave... [​IMG]

    Just picked this up on a whim yesterday. Wasn't really in the market for another watch since I just bought a new Sapphire Crystal Monaco about 2 months ago. But I walked into a Jared's and fell in love. I think I've found my everyday watch in this one. Great weight, great looks, great price. Only had it about 14 hours as of this posting...but I love it so far. Hope you guys (and girls) enjoy the pics.

    Thanks for the props but I probably have at a little bit of an unfair advantage when it comes to the photos. While I'm just an amateur shooter, I shot these with my 21 megapixel Canon 5D MK II, Professional Studio Flash and a combination of lenses in my in-home photography studio. The first two pics were taken with the Canon 50mm F1.8. The one with me in the photo was taken with the Canon 70-200mm F4 L Non-IS lens. And the last two were taken with the Canon 17-40mm F4 L Non-IS Lens.

    Here's a pic of my setup except I used a gray background in the watch pics:

    I want to cry, thought I had found my perfect watch, until I saw the price.

    Very nice set-up, AD. The watch pics look to be of professional quality (my dad was a professional for many years, cf. my avatar).

    Im a huge fan of Steve McQueen and I love square watches.

    These photos rule. I wish I had enough money to buy a watch like that, let alone 4 of them. Haha.

    I do not like. Even though it's kinda neat how they've matched the strap's stitching to it, I really don't care for that golden pinkish metal colour.

    I'm not really a watch guy but I was looking to pick up a Rolex replica and stumbled across this Zenith El Primero Jumping Seconds. Anyone have any opinions on this?

    Okay, I get it. It's a clunker. I'm digging the brown dial so the search will continue. Any suggestions?

    The speedy pro saphire sandwich comes with a chocolate dial. It's a beauty.

    Compared to the beautiful Zenith on this page, this is a [​IMG]cking atrocity. Too pinky-goldy-blingy and the 12 o'clock marker looks like a dick with undersized balls. Plus, the date window eats into a subdial -- this is a pet peeve of mine, I hate it. I would avoid it. BTW -- anyone else waiting/hoping for Omega to come up with an in-house chronograph movement with coaxial escapement?
