    I have always preferred the Radiomirs, because I think they're that little bit more flexible... I think the large crown guard for the Luminors looks great with casual wear or street wear, but just doesn't look right to me with a coat and tie... Too sporty IMO. That said, it would probably depend on the context you plan on wearing the watch.

    They're both great, but think of the primary intended use here -

    Casual - Luminor
    Dressy - Radiomir

    The Radiomir is more versatile imo, but the Luminor, these days, is the iconic Panny design (despite the fact that the Radiomir is the original design from the Italians).

    Beautiful Tortue Monopoussoir! A true classic and I love the single pusher mechanism...it allows for a very clean looking case.

    ahhh, if only. *le sigh*


    its definitely not a watch i plan on wearing with a suit and tie, i have dress watches, this is meant for casual wear. still not sure though. i really need to find a place i can try the 210 on in person.

    Yes, I am. I take it you have visited or posted photos of your Tortue MP on Revo's Cartier forum? I have 2 Cartier watches, a Pasha 950 Chronograph and a Privee Tank XL. I've posted some photos of each there in the past.

    Best regards,
    Dino
