    nice, singular. any chance of a wrist shot? i've been considering one of these for some time but feel it might wear a little small now that i've got used to sub/speedmaster as daily wearers

    By being almost "dial only" combined with the relatively flat case, the watch appears larger than the measure implies. I wear Submariners and Speedies too, and guess that this would fit you.

    The RO chrono is a beauty and it can be comfortably worn under the shirt cuffs, which you can't say for its bigger cousin, the Offshore.

    I have fairly small wrists, so the ROO looks clownishly large when strapped on. With the versatility of all the Offshore variants, it's been a case of admiring from afar. Other than size, I find the RO chrono much more timeless - and yes, it can slide comfortably under my cuff.

    Illustration of a "clownishly large" issue below. The super sized Shaquille O'Neal Limited Edition was a watch I could not learn to wear, it was just too large for my wrist. I sold it to a gentleman with larger wrists and more interest in the basketball player.

    My latest acquisition. Had a some very pleasant and needed R&R at one of our favourite places (Mansion on Delaware, Buffalo) and my wife surprised me with this.

    A big watch I enjoy very much: PAM 140 on silky nubuck croc strap. But I prefer to wear it on a dark brown /burgundy croc.

    Oh, how I regret not getting a 140 when my AD offered it!

    Enjoy it[​IMG]

    Thanks for comments. I have a special story of infatuation with the Roayl Oak, it is just a design which brings tingling sensations. I am not a big fan of two tones normally but this one has become something of a favourite for me. The little RO 15300 is worn less but has the advantage of neatly slipping under the shirt cuff. Another one:

    Greg, between your Speedy, Pepsi and Sub I'd never get around to wearing the GMTIIc (though one of my friends just bought one and really likes it).

    About the 5513, is the maxi dial the original design or something that was chosen when it was restored? (Which I guess it's been?)

    Since I work with watches for a living, I thought I would post a few pictures of some favorites:

    Since I have about 300 watches, I guess I will leave it at that! LOL!
