    Awesome watch. The only difficulty I had was choosing the color of the face (I went with a black faced one in the end), but the white plus YG combination is exceedingly elegant as well.

    Thanks! No date, yes. Def the cleanest looking. It´s my "poor man´s Milsub" :D

    I think I bought the strap on eBay ...

    It's a classic one that works with almost anything. Especially if you are a suit-man... After buying my AP next week i'm also going for a watch like this by IWC for sure.

    You can't go wrong with this :)

    Its a very nice choice. Its also quite different in overall design and dial layout compared to your Speedy, so even though its another chronograph it still gives you some variety. Good luck and enjoy!

    great watch. ive had 2 of them. I first picked the black dial with white subdials (panda) and LOVED it. after it was stolen, i replaced it with the blue dial special laureus edition. still have it, and it needs to see more wrist time.

    Guys:

    I don't suppose anyone here knows a JLC dealer well?

    I want to get that mock-tropic leather strap that comes on the Deep Sea watches.

    If it's 20mm with 16-18mm buckle end I'd like to put it on a Rolex 1680 I have coming.

    I bought that very watch earlier this year (changed the strap for a brown croc strap) to celebrate the birth of my girl. I love it so much. It was tough to choose between the various dials but I thought that the white/cream dial with the gold was the most versatile and elegant of the bunch. I already had a couple of watches with a black dial so I wanted a bit of a change as well.

    In Stitches, congrats on the new watch! Looks great.

    Anyone know anything about Zenith Chronomaster moonphase watches? Looking to pick one up. Cheers.

    Try Chatelco in Carmel. They're a good JLC AD.

    The 01-0240-410C491GB which is relatively new but I think there were some changes made to the current version (arabic vs. roman numerals for example).

    Thanks.
