    The guy you asked to PM you has the next model, ref 116610 which has the ceramic bezel, maxi dial, and wider case shoulders.

    Now that you've said it, I think a big part--or rather the entirety--of the reason I have a hard time pulling the trigger on a brown strap is precisely because of this fact. It is definitely a COLD dial, and certainly something to think about. As some of you may know, I kinda soured on it for awhile after I bought the speedy, but I have come back to it in recent weeks. I think a new strap will help, and heres some I found. I think the watch will look FREAKING AWESOME with something like these two:

    Sometimes I think I'm a bit colorblind when it comes to navy but the right strap is navy right? [​IMG]

    Looks like Navy to me... but that is also coming from someone who is slightly colorblind. It looks a bit 'grayvy.'

    ^ the cut out dial is cool. It reminds me a little of the dials of Cartier's Fine Watchmaking Collection. Congrats and enjoy.

    I presume you mean the Submariner models (I mentioned at the top of the page). I like differnet things about each. The bracelet and clasp is better on the new model (solid links) and the ceramic bezel is highly scratch resistant. However, there is a charm about the case of the previous model and its more classic tapered lugs, and I still like the old anodized aluminum bezels (which are much less expensive to replace than the new ceramic inserts). I have a 16610 LV (green bezel Sub with black dial) and I really like it alot. You just need to try them on and see which one really makes you smile.

    If you are speaking of the Cartier Fine Watchmaking Collection, I really like the Santos Dumont Squelette. A very cool and modern version of a skeleton.

    beautiful. for a more casual fit, wear a leather or beaded bracelet, and ship the watch to me.

    well played Stitches

    btw - beaded bracelet would go well with the chrono, but not the auto :D

    I meant something more along the lines of switching out the blue croc for brown :)

    Should make it a touch more casual.

    Alligator is not that casual. Rubber or perforated calf strap would be for this watch. I don't think a nato or canvas strap would work well.

    I get what you are saying, but this is a 21mm wide lug, and I would not dream of wearing it with a rubber strap. Calf isn't such a bad suggestion though.

    casual or not, get that brown strap NAOW. its awesome. brown and blue is always a winning combo. adds some variation to the theme.

    Planning on it. It's a great looking combination that's for sure.

    In fact I think it's much better than with the blue strap.
