    I got no chocolates and my watch actually came from Dirk. Oh well, he was a pleasure to deal with and I am pleased with the result, I cant complain. Perhaps when it goes back for servicing at some point down the road.

    Dirk and Dieter Dornlueth are the proprietors of Dornblueth & Sohn. Watchbuys.com has prices. Range from about $4,000 to $10,000.

    I figured as much but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some WIS inside joke.

    a) use Google (it's new but it's good)
    b) contact Dirk directly and make an enquiry.

    I own silver Rolex, and one of my uncles presented it to me for my birthday last year. Just wanted to post a picture of it. but just looking for a quality camera. Because my watch is a good looking one so need to get a nice photo.

    Thanks for the tip, a rubber strap would look great and I will definitely keep an eye out for one. None of the Sinn straps advertised at WatchBuys here lists the 756 as compatible... which one do you use?

    what do you guys think of Lum-Tec? I am looking for something sporty, but can be dressed up or down if needed. I already have an Airking and Datejust something less formal will do.
