    That's because GMTs are the bomb.


    They do look kinda cute in a knit cap, though:

    Doesn't a GMT become useless if you live in the same time zone?

    Well, there's a depressing thought. In any case — I don't know how to actually use these things, I just like pretty colours.

    Nice one. I favour the GMT version, of course...

    A friend of mine had one with an MOP dial for about a month. He found it too difficult to read the time and the subdials were practically invisible. He felt it lost a lot of its functionality with the MOP. Later on he purchased one with a regular dial.

    I love Daytonas. Below are a few quick pix of 2 of my Daytonas.

    Daytonas are great watches. Even this one, which I regret not getting a better photo of...

    Pretty excited about the PP Nautilus Annual on a steel bracelet. Ref 5726. I have no original pics but hope to see one in person Saturday.
    What I want is an annual calender watch durable enough for daily use and minimal immersion. Obviously $47k is a committment for most of us. Ouch. I will try to trade a 5146 on leather.

    Am I stuck paying full price in the US for this new model?
    Is there another steel annual suitable for daily wear?

    Thank you
