    A good choice. It is a less "bling" version of Chopard's Mille Miglia GMT and without that silly tyre thread rubber strap.

    Curious why this and not say the Rolex GMTIIc?

    Gaz


    Thanks. I like the 'look' of the piece (+ the Anthracite dial color), and also kinda like the fact that its not readily available in the U.S. Just generally hate Rolex, so that's a no-go for me.

    Meh. What drew you to this one?

    See above. What do you not like about it?

    Saw the Senator Hand Date for the first time this weekend. A beautiful watch at a great price (pics from www.watchprosite.com):

    Where in the U.S. can one check out Lang & Heyne and Urban Jürgensen watches?

    These are just lovely:

    Now we're talkin'! As for the Union piece I've never really been enamored with their watches. Just fair designs IMO. I'd rather go for two lower priced pieces like a Stowa and an Archimede or spend a bit more on a Glashutte or Nomos.

    I like it too. The anthracite dial is also a nice touch. I like its reflective properties, similar to that of mother of pearl but much more uniformed and not as feminine.

    It gets my vote. [​IMG]

    Late to the party.

    My first automatic (present from my wife). Temporary black strap until I find something nicer. Any feedback on Hirsch?

    Minor problem with getting this watch. I've now ordered another Seiko, a couple of NOS manual wind watches and am very tempted by a s/h Titoni... Is this more addictive than shoes? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    MODEL NUMBER PLEASE

    I really like that one, considered it myself (but opted for the IWC Portuguese Chrono)
