    Not taken today, or the rest of the picture would have been as snowy white as the Exp II on my wrist [​IMG]
    Edit: And then there's the date [​IMG]

    I didn't know Breitling did a triple calender Navitimer... that's really nice.

    Always found the face of the Navitimer to be a little too overwhelming to be a convenient time piece but absolutely love its presence on the wrist.

    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.

    The 45mm isn't as long as the Luminor 44 - which is about 52-53mm lug-to-lug. A 44mm Luminor hangs over my wrist and a 45mm Radiomir doesn't. So, if you want a large 45mm watch on your wrist you may be able to accomodate it. I like the 42mm - the alarm is an older model and there seems to be at least a few NOS pieces around. You probably already know that there's a new ('09) 42mm Radiomir with the P.999/1 caliber in-house movement for a little over $7K in steel.

    Yeah, it's called the Montbrillant Datora. The triple calendar is a bitch to set. I love the look of it, though. You're right--it's not practical for an everyday watch. I still think the Rolex Datejust is the best everyday watch. I just put it for sale if anyone's interested.

    Thanks. Yup - thats the 355. Really like the 98 though, and much prefer it to the new 355.

    3712 is a standard model and has been around for years. It's a split second manual wind chrono and just isn't as common as the auto.
    You're right. I was thinking 3721 for some reason. Thanks for the update on the model though. I'd never actually seen the split second manual before. Don't like it as much as the standard. ET - 45mm is too big for any watch unless you've got 9" wrists. That's pushing Ed Hardy/Hummer watch territory.
