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

    A Journe or a Lange would match well with your Vass, EGs & G&Gs [​IMG] In a shameless plug, check out the link in my signature for one suggestion...

    21st present from Mum, took me months to find a decent brand and something I actually liked, so hard finding a nice classic watch without 100 thousand dials and that's not 2cm thick that's as big as a small saucepan!

    Eh, sorry photos are not the best, and the flash makes it look really dirty...hmmm prob sould of cleaned before taking the photos, ohwell...enjoy!

    For a sportier alternative, Audemars included a brown dial in their recent facelift of the Royal Oak chronograph. IIRC, the Royal Oak has been around for some 30-35 years, and is arguably one of the most timeless designs of the last half century. As well, the more recent production (G series) is powered by AP's own movement. You can dress it up by switching out the bracelet for a croc strap, so there's some versatility here. Bang for buck, the RO is a winner IMO (although I still prefer the older dial design).

    Good choice, ivormiric! Although, I am biased...

    I am sure that must be a compliment. [​IMG]

    On the offhand chance that it is not, well, please let me know what RSS is. [​IMG]
