    I was talking about the hour and minute hands, not the chrono hands. Nice contrast on the RG, no contrast on the steel.

    So . . . do you think they'd do a one-off dial with a double triangle marker at 12 o'clock instead of a numeral?

    I doubt it but others would do a good job at modifying the dial if you really wanted to.

    Holy cow! Very nice! Did you get it tegimented? Or was it the black series?

    Nah. Too much trouble and I don't want to do any post-manufacture mucking around. By the way, have you seen the new basic 42mm Radiomirs with the new seconds-only inhouse P.999 movement? The titanium one even comes with gold hands. I haven't been so interested in a new Panerai in a long time. PAM338: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ah. I agree the sub-seconds could have been placed better: more to the left, please. Speaking of new releases, the IWC Port. Yacht Club chronograph is a hideous mutation. Why the f*ck did they add crown guards to the case? Totally destroys what I think is one of the most elegant case shapes out there.

    I just saw pictures of a few new releases from Jaeger LeCoultre and thought I'd post them here. Very exciting stuff. It's nice to see that JLC can still make a classically elegant watch. I'd buy any of of these in a heartbeat.

    Finally, a proper, dressy JLC chrono! Extremely reasonable price, too: 7,700 euros for the steel version.


    JLC remakes the Tag Heuer Carrera with bad pushers? I'll pass.

    I never thought I would like Panerais but I am really digging this Radiomir.
