    Very nice - esp. for the money. I happened to look at a CW catalog last night and was surprised to find a few mechanical movements that looked pretty good. Good warranty also. I suppose that he's getting his movements from the consolidated shops, but nice nonetheless.

    I'm afraid I must, with respect to the owner of the watches, agree here. I would consider wearing the mini tank for black tie formal events but thats it. They are all very bling, and very feminine.

    Here is my two favourites, I do have a few more that aren't worth posting though. I hope to add many more in the next 20 years, but I think it's a good start for someone in their 20's still (just).

    1. 1960's Omega Seamaster Cosmic Automatic (with new strap)
    2. Tissot PRC200 Chronograph

    Your pictures are always great and that's a really nice looking watch.

    I really love the design of this watch, but I think it's way too big for my 6.1" wrist.

    Lovely Calatrava Z. How big is that particular model? Has Patek increased the size of these recently as most other makes seem to be doing?
