In the meantime, I cycle between one of two Seiko Sportura chornos, a Hamilton Auto Chrono, and LumTec Combat B8 chrono. I think I only have a pic of the LumTec at the moment (composition is off but hey...this isn't the photography subform ). The shell is a souvenir from a work trip.
I thought there was some law that if you posted pics of a LumTec you were required to include lume pics!

This is a very strange choice, Patek all day. I'd compare PP with Vacheron Constantin, but not Montblanc. As a Minerva owner, I'm still pissed about the while Montblanc thing though.

A Speedmaster will be my next watch. That will go nicely with my Submariner already owned and the couple lesser, beater watches I already have, should just about complete my 'collection'. I dont need or want a ton of watches. Just the two most iconic watches out there. IMO.

Bought my "dream" watch earlier this year. Rolex Sub C. Been drooling at one since I was 21 but never could afford it back then. Opted for the Omega SMP back in 1997. Had a Tag F1 before that. I loved that watch. Never wore it after I bought my SMP. Looking back, I should have kept the watch. I bought a Casio G shock as my beater watch. Would much rather have the Tag instead...

If you appreciate nice cars, you probably appreciate nice watches.

Darn, I've been thinking about this watch for like 2 years. Congrats on one of the finest diving watches in years.


Best regards,
