    If you want a brown dial and a chrono, go with this one:
    PAM 311, you'll also get a second time zone and a 8 days rÃ[​IMG]serve de marche indicator "for free"


    On my wish list, unfortunately after too many watches.


    Isn't the Speedmaster available with a brown dial as well?

    Thanks. Although TAG Heuer may not up there in the horological heaven, I have a special weakness for the Monaco model. It's got that special '70s feeling that I sometimes crave... [​IMG]

    Really like the one on the right; any chance you can say a bit more about its details? What does the red/blue lining symbolize?

    Alright - let me rephrase; I mean the Speedmaster Professional, stainless steel, with a brown dial. Smartass...

    Wasn't interested in a manual wind with no date, otherwise I would have jumped on it.

    It's a hint to the movie "Le Mans".

    What was the URL of the watch straps site that has great prices? I deleted my bookmark.
    I know it was posted here before but Search does not find it.

    As a couple of others have posted, it goes back to Steve McQueen and those Gulf stripes.

    This one came as a limited edition a few years ago, I think 2005 or 2006, and is sold out. There have been two additional striped versions also issued as LEs but those had dark base dials (black and grey) instead of the white base.

    'Countess' automatic made in Germany with lots of character. Purchased in the 1950s by my grandfather. I found it broken on the attic and had it restored.

    Very nice! I think it would look beautiful on a brown leather strap!
