    I'm happy that OP finally came out with a 42mm of the Radiomir - it's such a perfect case and dial design but the 45mm size can't work for everyone's wrist.

    I'm bothered by the position and proportions of the seconds subdial so I'm eagerly awaiting the base version of that one.

    It's a fine looking watch, but I don't like the large Ck logo. I have something of an aversion to "fashion watches." I figure if you're going to buy a watch, you should at least buy one from a company that specializes in manufacturing watches (as opposed to, say, cologne).

    If you enjoy the minimalist style of that particular watch, you might want to take a look at some of the offerings from Skagen as well as the Citizen Stiletto. All are very reasonably priced.

    But if you like the Ck watch, go for it.

    Panerai's offerings confuse me. There are so many limited editions, etc., and they all mostly look the same. I used to hate them but they have grown on me, especially now that they are making their own movements. I'll get one one of these days, I just have to familiarize msyelf more with their model range.

    Yes - I can't follow - they come up with 15 new models and 10 ltd editions (+ a couple re-editions of discontinued ones) every year. All are in fairly small production numbers. I guess the concept of small batches is part of the image they want to keep about the brand.

    Yes, it is the minimalist design that attracts me. Thanks for the suggestions.

    one man's minimal is another man's cheap/chintzy.

    I thought this might be the best area to pose this question.

    I am looking at buying either an Omega Speedy 3570 or 3573 in the next few months. Does anyone have an idea if I ask for an AD rec on timezone or a similar site, what the standard discount is for this watch? I usually buy from one place in Boston, but they are no longer carrying Omega.


    You should be able to easily get 25%... maybe slightly better if you pay cash.

    I always thought there was an AD out in DC that people on TZ always went to for Omegas with at least a 30% discount.
