    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.


    I actually like that one, has a bronze like dial? One of the two two-tones I like is the ss/gold GMT IIC (the other is the J12 Superlegerra) so i could see myself liking that one.

    And I completely forgot all the IWC's you own too. [​IMG]

    ^Looks nice.

    Regards.


    Unless you drive a lambo or are a rap artist or are expecting the terminator style apocalypse I guess this would be a directionally correct statement. Otherwise you have have little to no taste.

    People that collect watches are two steps removed from people that collect old Sega videogames.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like Breitling?

    Not a fan, either.

    I agree that their current offerings are really atrocious, but the stuff from the 60's, for my tastes at least, are really excellent. [​IMG] [​IMG] I am a sucker for vintage carreras as well, especially with "panda-eye" subdials. [​IMG] My own small-timer post - Carrera Twin-time and an Oris XXL Worldtimer. Currently looking for an 1808 chrono-matic as shown above or perhaps a 1045 Omega Speedmaster. [​IMG]

    those Carreras are sweet! What do they go for, if you don't mind me asking?
