    thanks. i know of the color strap gdl referenced, but i dont think a standard strap would look right with the lugs on this model. ill try and get a beter pic of the strap ends on mine, youll see what i mean. the case between the lugs is very thick, and there would be a lot of odd dead space with a reg strap. thanks tho.

    my first thought, and for no particular reason, is the zenith. speedy will likely get more love here tho.

    edit - as seen above. :)

    No groupthink but, objectively, that's not a fair fight... :)

    I thought groupthink would be the speedy pro?

    Just throwing it out there. I like both.

    I was wondering peoples thoughts on the Patek 3900, would it be wearable for a man or too small as it is only 32mm? I really want a nautilus but 14K is a big difference from the 3900 and 5700. Thoughts?

    Hopefully in a good way. :D




    I personally prefer the Zenith but they are both great watches. I prefer the dial of the Zenith, which really pops 'in the flesh'. It also has the hi beat movement which is very cool.


    I'm confused that you are confused gdl.
