    Oh man, that GO is drool-worthy. Such a beautiful watch. It's not the Pano XL right?

    Cool, it's good to see some watchmaker stay with the smaller cases and make some great watches in <40mm.

    I have been considering on purchasing a GO, how long have you had it and how has it perform/held up? I saw someone in WUS purchase the exact same watch and had problems with the power reserve so he had to send it back in.

    I've had mine for 5 years. There was a small issue in the first year with the big date function (I think it was my fault [​IMG]) and the service center dealt with it under warranty. No problems since then.

    Sounds good, I think I may be a step closer to getting one, probably the Senator Auto or Senator Sixties. Although I wouldn't mind the PanoMaticDate if it came in black dial with a date with black background and white numerals, iirc that version is only available in other Pano XL.

    I have owned a PanoMaticDate for (I believe) six years. I bought it off TZ from a seller who said it was one of the first 20 PMDs in the United States (the movement is numbered 1) and tested to a greater degree than subsequent PMDs. I don't know if this statement is true, but I have never had a problem with the watch and have not yet sent it in for service.

    Yea I've been thinking about selling my Speedmaster and getting the PanoDate for a while now, pics like these are just making it worse. Any recommendations on dealers, grey market or otherwise?

    Armstrong/Rockwell is a TZ forum sponsor and they are also a GO dealer. I got my Hublot from them and could not be happier.

    MY next purchase will definitely be a GO or VC, if not probably an IWC Mark XVI since I am just in love with that watch as well and I'll probably go to Armstrong/Rockwell again.

    It looks great. I like the regular size, I'm not a fan of oversized watches.

    Oversized = anything larger than 44mm?

    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!
