Thanks for the suggestion; nice looking watches but a bit big for my tastes! :D

Another vote for the Seiko Monster (black or orange). I picked up a SKX779 about 12 months ago and it has proved to be a favorite for day to day use. Toying with the idea of buying the OM to rotate it with....... if the boss indoors lets me get away with it :wink:
