    I prefer the second myself. But I have to say, those are superb photographs, whoever took them. Very well done IMO.

    INORITE! pics are fantastic.


    no joke.

    here are my issues. i think, objectively, i like the more classy subdued look of the 210 case, and the more stylistic number fonts. on the other hand, i do want a sportier watch, and i want a panerai with the crown protector, and i like the option to easily swap straps.

    in the end they are both beautiful looking watches, and i dont know how i am going to decide.

    I have always preferred the Radiomirs, because I think they're that little bit more flexible... I think the large crown guard for the Luminors looks great with casual wear or street wear, but just doesn't look right to me with a coat and tie... Too sporty IMO. That said, it would probably depend on the context you plan on wearing the watch.

    They're both great, but think of the primary intended use here -

    Casual - Luminor
    Dressy - Radiomir

    The Radiomir is more versatile imo, but the Luminor, these days, is the iconic Panny design (despite the fact that the Radiomir is the original design from the Italians).

    Beautiful Tortue Monopoussoir! A true classic and I love the single pusher mechanism...it allows for a very clean looking case.

    what did you get?


    ahhh, if only. *le sigh*


    its definitely not a watch i plan on wearing with a suit and tie, i have dress watches, this is meant for casual wear. still not sure though. i really need to find a place i can try the 210 on in person.

    Yes, I am. I take it you have visited or posted photos of your Tortue MP on Revo's Cartier forum? I have 2 Cartier watches, a Pasha 950 Chronograph and a Privee Tank XL. I've posted some photos of each there in the past.

    Best regards,
    Dino

    Can't get both? :satisfied: Actually, I got tired of the base faster than I did the Rad.
