    We're all waiting for you to throw down with a timepiece commensurate with your shoe collection... [​IMG]

    Okay, I get it. It's a clunker. I'm digging the brown dial so the search will continue. Any suggestions?

    The speedy pro saphire sandwich comes with a chocolate dial. It's a beauty.

    Compared to the beautiful Zenith on this page, this is a [​IMG]cking atrocity. Too pinky-goldy-blingy and the 12 o'clock marker looks like a dick with undersized balls. Plus, the date window eats into a subdial -- this is a pet peeve of mine, I hate it. I would avoid it. BTW -- anyone else waiting/hoping for Omega to come up with an in-house chronograph movement with coaxial escapement?

    No suggestions at the moment, but I'm glad you passed on that one.

    Don't know how you feel about Radiomirs, but here's a new model for 2010 in their new brownish composite material:

    If aportnoy feels a Speedy Pro is too large, I can't imagine he'd go for the Rad

    ^ True. It's just what came to mind when he said 'brown'.

    Edit: IIRC, he didn't say the pro was too large, but the 44mm automatic Speedy I suggested. But that will probably still rule out a Radiomir.

    I like the broad arrow. I end up getting the Speedy pro over it and save a few bucks. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have that same watch. Hardly worn. Stuffed in a drawer. Good and cheap and with cool colours. Will sell to any gentleman with a willingness to pick it up in Hong Kong. Cheerio!
