    Don't be that guy.



    Yeah that's fair. I'm throwing the bracelet back on mine for awhile. I might agree with you.

    Ok now in all seriousness...

    Regarding Dino944's watches: The Cartier is absolutely beautiful. I am in love with the open caseback. A new one was released at SIHH, do you know the differences between the two? The VC is also beautiful, and the caseback again is striking. Not sure if I like the corners on the case of the VC(for myself), but nevertheless they do not take away from the overall beauty of the watch.

    WarrenG: The submariner is a beautiful, classic watch. Period. While I prefer the slimmer lugs on the 5513 or the 14060 and no date (to me it maintains a sense of symmetry), I think it all depends on the size of your wrist. I have smaller wrists and like to have a slim profile watch that fits under the cuff of my shirt. To each his own though. Congrats to you on your new purchase!!

    Kid Nickels: With Omega, I would consider vintage omegas with very minimalist features--just a raised omega logo and perhaps "automatic" underneath. Not a fan of the font of the seamaster on those vintages. Let me see if I can dig up a picture...

    well I much prefer GP's more classic refined styling like those posted previously... especially some from the 1945 Collection. Some of these newer versions seem so be trying to walk the line b/t the classic/elegant style and the updated/trendier style ... and IMO fail. I really do not like the look or placement of the date (calendar?) window and it's just lacking the refined style I appreciate of GP's such as those mentioned and pictured. So in short yes.
