    I know right? I told the guy in charge of the shop to give me a call if anything like that EVER shows up again. I would have given him every dime to my name (read: not that much) for that watch, and I would have flipped the hell out of it. The guy apparently thinks its junk. Ignorance is not always bliss, I guess.

    :sneaky2: Gaz's Pan on the left seems like the kind of thing I would wear, provided it's not gigantic and heavy. I retract my earlier statement.

    loveeeeeeeeeee that GMT. The 1675 is probably my favorite Rolex of all time. One day, I'll buy a complete and lovely example.


    I have a feeling you bought a Rolex Submariner no date :D

    Nope--although that was in the Top 3, I saw the new one and just was not liking the maxi-everything :(

    That's why you go vintage.

    It's a 372 (on the right), but the 127 is just as great, and in many ways greater. Love the 249 as well. 47mm PAMs wear big, but they're supposed to be big. Not an everyday watch for sure, but fun in the right context.

    When and if I eventually go vintage, I feel like I ought to do it right. So I guess I will hold off for another day!

    yeah I understand. That is why I flipped my Sub-c. But for some reason, the new GMT looks better with the maxi case. I can't explain it, it doesn't look too square like my former Sub-C. But I'm a sucker for the maxi dial, some people don't like it, but I love em.

    okay, let me take another stab at it. Omega Speedmaster, or Planet Ocean? :embar:


    Same here, the vintage I would really like to own some day would be a GILT PCG 1675.

    Ding ding ding, Speedy Pro it is! I figured that the second guess would be right, you were definitely on the right track.

    And I actually do enjoy the maxi-dial, but I also like the smaller dial. I think it just kind of depends on the model. For example, I love the new Explorer 2, although it did not sit well on my wrists unfortunately. I think that the lugs on the no-date sub just really ruin the "sensual" shape that I usually associate with the no-date sub. I wish that they did more than merely take off the oculus and the date of the sub-c, and call it a new model! I guess you can't have it all.

    And that is a hell of a GMT model. Those old GMTs are just amazing. The faded bezels... mmm.

    Now if I could find my camera charger :confused:
