    Yes I saw the Manometro S (sport version made of carbon fibre) as well as the Manometro Cronograph.

    For me the Sport was too modern & reminded me of a Suunto sports watchs (though the cf was very impressive - I'd be tempted to get it to match my Cinelli full carbon road bike, but us roadies would never wear something as bulky etc on a ride).

    The Chronograph was very special, but more than I wanted to spend - maybe next time..

    Bah, carbon? Ti, baby, ti. :p

    But there is still no titanium watch in my collection to match the Merlin - closest so far was the almost-buying of a Ti/Ta/RG SeMP Chrono...

    Campy or Shimano? [​IMG]

    Shimano.

    I'd need a Boron Carbide Ceramic Metal Matrix to match my bike.

    I vote for a cycling thread. Not just road bikes, not just Italian ones. All cycling. Especially beautiful everyday getting groceries/off to work/going to the cafe kind of cycling.

    /M, using a fixed 70s DeRosa Primato as commuter...

    My wife took one look at the Manometro and offered to buy it for me. Usually she just rolls her eyes when I'm looking at watches.

    You have a Merlin? Pics please please!

    I'm sorry to disappoint you - but it's not a Ti/Ta/RG bike... [​IMG]

    Anyway, haven't got any pics of the stallion by itself, but I'm riding from time to time (yep, that means all of the time...) and taking pics, mostly of the beautiful coastal scenery around here. Sometimes I show up on the pics too...

    [​IMG]

    Tomorrow morning I'll go for a dirty little ride with the Surly 1x1 on some tight, twisty singletrack...

    Yes, to stay somewhat OnT;

    A grail watch arriving today - Seiko MarineMaster SBDX001, pictured with a silicone tropic. A simply amazing piece.
