    It was up in the cars thread a week ago, so I just found it funny.


    Make yourself feel better, as people pad you on your back and give you credit, they don't know it's not true. People do it in real life as well, sad really.

    No one who's working at an ib firm has time to jerk off on an online forum showing off to people he dunno 100 posts a day. I thought he was one of them wealthy kids who did nothing all day but Xanax and adderall

    The internet has created access for anyone to indulge their own, personal cult of personality. In a way we're getting closer and closer to Andy Warhol's prescient statement. Facebook (which I personally abhor btw) is also an example of this...

    It's a psychological drug of sorts to compensate for one's own perceived shortcomings or lack of confidence, self-esteem or.... well whatever you call it, it's f'd up IMO. sorry, thus I digress...

    I grabbed that Seamaster the other day... must post this weekend! :slayer:

    Does anyone have a Reverso in the Grande Taille size? I think I am going to order one and am curious about the fit. I tried on the Grande size, and it is a bit bigger than I want for work wear. My other watches are an IWC Port Chrono and a 42mm Seamaster. I want something smaller and "dressier" for work.

    I have a GT (Sun Moon) and used to have an XGT (Reserve Grande Date). As much as I loved the design of the RGD, it just did not sit well on the wrist. The proportions are different from the other Reverso cases (the thickness is more than proportionally increased vs. length & width) and IMO just don't work well or naturally on the wrist. The GT is perfect for me and my fairly large wrist - not too small but a case that is not too thick and sits naturally. I would think that it would work well for you if you prefer 40-42mm case round watches.

    I prefer the ultra thins, but I have a wrist on the smaller side

    someone (actually a manager an authorized retailer) told me that breitling for bentley allows you design your own watch (i guess similar to the vacheron bespoke option).

    i couldnt find any such thing on line on the BfB site, or elsewhere.

    anyone here heard such a thing, and if so do you have links to where it can be done?

    I actually completely forgot about Planet Oceans existing. The new model with the ceramic bezel and inhouse movement looks pretty good. I can probably trade in for that, adding a few hundred dollars or so. I'm skeptical regarding the resale value on Omegas though
