    Rolex also receives an undue amount of hate.

    That's true but that is often to be expected when you're the 800 lbs gorilla in any business.

    Love the clean dial on your Reverso - is that a Grande Taille? Details, pls.

    Not many details to add. It is but a simple Reverso GT.
    I still haven't got around to having something engraved on it so the back is plain.

    Not many fans of the watch here but I got a new gummy croco strap for the Hublot.

    I'm not a fan, but as long as you like it, that's all that counts.

    Of all the Big Bangs, I think that one is probably the most interesting. It's very conceptual obviously but I thought it was executed well when I saw it IRL. The rose gold/carbon fiber versions may be ont he other end of the taste spectrum.

    I can see this watch being perfect for lots of different fashion attire, say what SoCal often wears. It's not my taste in watches, but I think it'll complement certain fashion looks very well.

    Me, too. Unfortunately, it's selling for over $3k these days. Without going to Asia, you're not going to get much of a discount on it. There are too many other watches I'd rather get for just a little more.

    Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, I love the watch one way or the other. I'm not crazy enough to pay that much for someone else to like.

    I still love that GMT IIC and Explorer. So what is left in your Rollie collection?
    And if you ever consider letting the Explorer I go, hollah at me dawg! [​IMG]

    Still got the Daytona on strap, Seadweller, GMT I, GMT II, Yachtmaster, Exp I. I used to have a Exp II white dial that I really regret parting with.

    Oh yeah, congrats on the new shoes for your Big Bang. The BB doesn't really do anything for me but that doesn't matter. I know my tastes aren't to everyone's liking. For reasons that are unclear to me this is one of my favorites. I can certainly imagine it not appealing to everyone.
