    Greg at www.caliberswiss.com. Very active under the name of Mosco at www.rolexforums.com. I have seen him sell quite a few Blancpains.

    ^^Looks great with that outfit. I really like the jacket (flannel?).

    Thanks. Yes, a grey flannel suit.

    I was going to ask what this was, then I saw the mirror. Very nice; classic.

    I really like the dial of the Radiomir GMT but am unsure of the 42mm size (as opposed to the regular 45mm). Any thoughts?

    I think the 42mm case is perfect actually. I have this watch - let me know if you have issues finding one to try on in NYC (can't imagine there's that many around)

    Thanks gdl - the Panny store has one, but I appreciate the offer. Congrats on the buy - I'm loving the dial.

    Do you wear the 42mm with a suit?

    I'm deciding between the 42mm GMT and the 214 (below - its a 45mm) - any comments are welcome:

    ET - what's your wrist circumference? Unless it's unusually large I would definitely go with the 42mm. 45mm can very easily look overdone unless you've got Aahnold-like wrists.

    Wait... did they re-issue it? [​IMG]

    It's an old Ltd Edition. I've had mine for 6 or 7 years. It needs a good service btw... but I fear the OP bill for that movement...

    Very nice but seems somehow a bit ummm dainty for a Pam. Picked up a used Luminor Base 176 recently, my first Pam and I realize a completely different style. Really enjoy the solid heft and presence of the watch.

    Hmm, not sure - didn't realize it was that old. I asked if they had the 00098 in stock, and they confirmed they did. Perhaps the lady misunderstood.

    While I agree with the point on the wrist size, I'm trending towards the 214 as I intend to wear this watch casually (i.e. never to the office), and I prefer the beefier watches for casual wear. I also feel a 42mm Radiomir, much like the a 40mm Luminor, is a bit against the ethos of the brand. But I do love that GMT. Tough choice.

    Medtech: I already have a few 44mm Luminors, and like the size for casual wear, so am comfortable with the idea of a bigger watch.
