    I'm sure many people would. Fat rappers however are hardly style icons.

    I can appreciate the size of the Unitas movement relative to the case size, and that its a very cost effective movement for them to use in their base models. However, I personally would not be happy wearing a watch of that price with a Unitas movement. I like the design of the Panerais, just not many of the movements they choose to put in their watches.

    You can see my 118 as a proxy for the metal and dial. It's 10 years old though and pretty beat up...

    Deal!

    But i still want my homage pic, so bring the 112 as well. :D

    I just checked the OP again, that 210 REALLY is nice. I think you got it right, there is just no way to have just one panny.

    I get that this is just a take off on what we do here every day, but this is one of the most hilarious threads I've ever seen

    https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=215077

    Jesus, the absolutely horrifying outfits, watches, the nonstop blowing of each other, the completely over the top, staged, 'let me fit every ounce of materialism I can in this pic'... it's unreal.

    If I had a YG GMT II, my first instinct would not be to slip it on an Ace of Spades bottle like on p.139. Wow.

    You are absolutely right. About a year and a half back I was looking for a simple and classic sport watch and had always liked the Explorer I, but it was just a bit too small. I fell in love with the simplicity of the new 39mm version and browsed that site to get more info - I was sorry I did. I almost did not buy the watch because of the brand name and type of buyer that seems to be associated; see the "show me your Rolex with your car/boat/champagne/etc" threads. Thank goodness my Explorer seems to goes unnoticed by almost everyone.

    the big watches dont bother me. as long as it looks good on the wrist, and an appropriate sized movement i used, i think its A-OK.
