    I concur :).

    I think that may be my next purchase, perhaps. Time to start saving...

    This... I'm leaning towards the PanoReserve tho. I'll probably pull the trigger in a couple years.

    I'm probably the minority here.

    Possibly the ugliest watch ever made.

    The one pictured above it is another likely candidate.

    Since I don't think I'd want another moonphase (unless GO releases total jaw-dropping nut-busting awesomeness), I am leaning toward either the pano reserve or the senator observer. Definitely want a GO for my collection at some point tho I dont know exactly what

    For the immediate, I think I am settled on the Speedy Pro. Now the Q is: 1969, 1980 (my birth year), or brand spanking new? open caseback (dont like the fact the inscription says "first and only watch worn on the moon" though.) ? sapphire or hesalite? decisions decisions... [​IMG]

    Rappers don't need to know what time it is. That's what the entourage is for.

    That makes sense. The PML would be my first moonphase... and what a moonphase it is! I still think your JLC MUT Moon is the ne plus ultra of moonphases in that price range, however, with the Blancpain Villeret running a close second. But I digress.

    If I was to do a Speedy Pro, I think I would do brand spanking new. Vintage worries me a big. And for some reason or another, probably the Hesalite... just because it feels right with that watch. You have a lot of big, fun decisions ahead of you.

    And Warren, I think the new Panoreserve is really beautiful, much prettier than the previous iteration, in my opinion. And this is a bit of an aside, but what exactly does the Panograph do?

    Hey Cylon, good call on the Speedmaster. I would actually hunt down for this ref # 3572. Basically hesalite front crystal, and sapphire display back (displaying the movement). Birth year watch is pretty cool and all. But I wouldn't get an older Speedmaster, unless it was a premoon (321 cal).

    I really do miss my Speedy tho.



    I agree. I'm also a huge sucker for manual wind.

    I agree with you Warren on Cylon getting the ref 3572 Speedy. The best of both worlds. They are getting harder to find and more expensive however. I got out bidded a couple of times on eBay a while back.

    Edited to please Fang face
