    Nah, but you have to fulfill some basic requirements; have impeccable style, wealth, reputation, power, an Italian passport, lotsa sprezz and some age.

    the gold one is over 50K, closer to 75K iirc. ;)

    edit - just checked, at full retail brand new the gold is now 77.5K and the steel is now 59.5K. :(

    When it was sold to me they called it a Double Pommes. Of course I've never found that one online.

    Close, but not the same, I see.

    Was thinking of getting some other straps for my MUT Moon. Suggestions? Think I can pull off a dark brown strap or should I stick with black?

    I see. There's been many very small auto movements by multiple houses in the past. I believe Omega still produces some pretty small automatic ladies watches using Caliber 8520, like the Constellation or Ladymatic

    Was thinking the same thing! As per my "symmetry" post previously, I love the date window at 6oclock on almost any watch

    Ladymatic sounds like some sex toy you would buy out of a catalog in the 50s.

    Nice looking watch guys. I too have come to appreciate having the date at 6 o'clock. Its much nicer looking than when you lose the 3 marker.

    Excellent taste, sir. Looks identical, or very close to identical. Is your watch quite noisy? It sounds ridiculous, but mine is quite loud. I can hear the movement spinning. I have a Cartier that can be a bit loud from time to time, but nothing like the Longines...
