    its just a personal preference as i like boring watches like the a. lange and sohn posted above, but your favorite watch seems way too busy.

    Good point. Maybe that's why I wear my plain watches most of the time and rarely wear this one.

    Really? I thought the onion had farther spaces in between the slits.

    My current fave is my IWC Top Gun. I'm sick of 46mm, but this watch was impossible for me to decline.

    What's the rational for showing 3 dates? Rather busy, no?

    Love those Greg Stevens buckles.

    Nice 112 from one owner to another. Good choice in straps.

    When you're on the Highway to the Danger Zone, its easy to forget yesterday's date and hard to think about what tomorrow's will be.

    If you're a real soldier, you aren't wearing a $10K watch into a battle zone. I suppose unless you're a mercenary getting paid buco bucks.

    Clearly, somebody needs to brush up on their Top Gun references.
