    My wedding ring is platinum, so any casing other than white gold or stainless doesn't work for me. I highly prefer brown straps and stainless to black, so that is somewhat limiting. These are some I like a lot though, in no order:

    I love the classic Cartier face, and I love the shape of the Roadster. For my arm, the large size is a little big, the midsize a little small. I'm also a lefty, so the winder might be irritating as it's very large.

    Not a huge Panerai fan, but this one is nice. Probably the only watch I've seen where a brown strap and black face look good.

    Clean lines, easy to dress up and down.

    My favorite Omega.

    Vintage 18k Constellation. . .
    That is a stunner, although I prefer the pie-pan dials and without a date window. Best yet are the versions with arrowhead markers. I also prefer white and/or honeycomb to colored. On original bracelets, especially gold rice, would be even cooler.

    Please make me happy and show me a bunch of old Connies.

    Omegablogger, do you know where I could get that gold Omega logo on the dial? I have an 18kt vintage Omega Tresor model that has it missing. My favorite Constellation are the Luxe models with the hooded lugs: [​IMG]

    A 195??? We have a real PAM-head her! Congrats on a great piece. Don't want to offend you, but is your name on it? just curious...
    Yes it's my name. I was on the "blackOPS PAM" project since its inception.

    These are some I like


    So here is a home to post your pictures of your watches (I think it's more interesting if we stick to our own watches rather than reposting stock photos or other people's scans)


    oooooooooooo

    I believe RGM Watches in Mt. Joy (Lancaster) PA could remedy that for you. They're not cheap though.
