    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.

    Why are you so miserable?

    Gotcha. I prolly wasn't clear. I was just wondering if it was IWC's own movement as opposed to Unitas, etc.

    As I hope I made clear--that is most certainly an IWC movement and not a Unitas.

    Too much I think lol. I can't disclose the price yet, Cause I haven't got a solid answer about it. Were kicking each others tires righb now.

    I did just buy a watch but this would be a clock for the office [​IMG]


    Well, if you don't end up picking it up and decide to save your cash - as you should - let me know.

    Thanks!

    I've been drooling over this watch for the past year now. I'm glad I was finally able to get it.

    This year, I'll be drooling over this one [​IMG]

    Nice 45 mm?
    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]
    I agree... Navitimer is the wildcard watch on my list. [​IMG]

    Is there a rule for watches when you have slim wrists/forearms? Like every watch i try on that i think looks decent in the case just looks ginormous when i actually try it on... blargh I mean color/style/size in general... anything along those lines that can make a watch appear to not be as big on a person if they're skinnier :p

    45 mm?[/IMG]


    42mm only.

    A 45mm watch would look massive on my small wrist [​IMG]

    Thinking of picking these up also: Bernhardt Globemaster (perfect when I travel, for multiple timezones): [​IMG] I also like this one, because I'm a big fan of Seikos: Seiko Spirit [​IMG] myke
