    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I wear my Speedy Pro with a suit and it looks fine. But mostly, I way prefer the tri-compax design to the unbalanced "Valjoux 7750" look.

    Take the original, all the way! One of the best watches out there, period, in my most humble of opinions.

    Hmm. I don't actually own a car, living in NYC and all. I do rent hybrid cars by the hour though. To shop at big box stores and get major discounts when I purchase 48 rolls of tissue paper! That sounds pretty boring, right!

    I get your dilemma, but perhaps because of a slightly trivial reason: I like the date feature for the SPM with a gold bezel. However, hard to beat the 50th anniv edition for all the reasons mentioned above. Personally I'd go for the SPM with a bracelet but that's just because of my own preferences and given that I have other watches on leather straps that I can use for different occasions. I don't own a SPM (deciding between this one and another piece recently and I went for the other piece), but if I had one I'd probably want a bracelet so I can swim with it, etc.

    Heh heh yes, Dino944, I suppose this works! [​IMG]

    Say it ain't so! Next thing you'll be posting that Wayne manor is actually a suburban mcmansion :butbut: .



    + 1 on SMP original - although I much prefer a nato/zulu alternated with leather to a bracelet.

    Oh, you had to let go of this beauty? Love these pics! And one of several?

    I'll concede that fighting crime in tights while running around on rooftops burns far more calories and keeps me in better shape than if I just drove around in my batmobile all the time. With that said, all the bone breaking can scratch up those cases and bracelets. Best to leave the watches at home before I put on the costume.

    On topic, this is me with my 3970 on right before I put on the bat costume tonight.

    Thank you! Now I have nothing to worry about if Bane or one of my arch-enemies tries to cripple my operations by siphoning off the resources of Wayne Corp. I beat them to it! I do have to make sure they don't get at the watches.

    I would have to disagree witth with this statement, shirts are a dime a dozen! Certain dress shoes and sneakers are much harderto come by!

    It was a joke referencing that his new watch doesn't fit under his cuffs.

    But personally, I'm more likely to notice the cuff issue when someone is wearing a nice watch than a shoe issue. But that's just me. Regardless, my statement was meant as a joke and good natured ribbing; hopefully Frills took it that way.

    Also, for me shirts are no where near dime a dozen, but that is way OT for this thread. Different strokes and what not.

    Right, so you have a collection of Patek Philippe watches priced like sports cars, acquired in the space of three months, but you rent a Prius to go and buy thrifty toilet paper. Frilly, there's no two ways about it: you economists are properly fucking weird. [​IMG]

    Frankly I prefer the Speedy Pro much more with the black dial and the display back is generally a plus as well.

    The one thing I would check on however is the movement. I know Omega had problems with some of their new movements around this time frame. I would check to make sure this one was not one of them.

    Thank you sir.


    The fact that it changes shades based on light and angle makes it that much more special in my opinion.

    I've decided to get as close to the goal of the one watch as I can by the end of the year. Realistically it will probably be three watch, but we will see how it goes.
