    Well, I like both Luminors and Radiomirs with and without the seconds subdial. But if you wanted to cover both dial and case designs with just two watches, I'd prefer the Luminor with the seconds (they somehow balance out the large crown guard IMO).

    Which would then leave the Base design for the Radiomir. Convoluted, I know, but that's the reasoning for my slight preference :embar:

    And plz, no date on PAMs :D

    Btw, Gaz: I like the strap that comes with the 372.

    Yes, this is the first time I have kept the OEM strap on for a new Panerai. Actually, the Panerai executive responsible for the 372 told me that they went the extra mile on the strap to ensure that die hard 'Ristis didn't switch the OEM strap. I think they did a great job! Its really tough but I've been softening it with a nightly massage of Saphir leather cream.

    My one quartz watch. I've never been interested in owning a Datejust, but I always liked the case and bracelet of their Oyster Quartz Datejust, so a few years ago I pulled the trigger on one. I'm generally don't have much interest in quartz watches, but it is nice to have a watch that I can throw on at a moment's notice without having to set the time (I'm not a fan of watch winders). Its also more antimagnetic than a Milgauss, and was the first SS Rolex to be offered with a synthetic saphire crystal and solid ss link bracelet. Its hard to believe, but at at one point its MSRP on the SS Oysterquartz was higher than that of a SS a manual wind Daytona. Now a manual wind SS Daytona (without a PN/Exotic Dial) sells on average for at least 10 times that of an OQ...the revival of interest in mechanical watches in the late 80s early 90s changed everything.

    I was thinking of picking up this Hamilton Viewmatic as an everyday beater/whatever watch. Thoughts? (btw... $275... good price?)

    sounds good to me. Normally I see them for around $250-300ish.
