Not really. Too dressy for me (massive generalisation, I know). I am tempted by the 2015 Laureus Ingeniuer 323909 though..

To me the Bracelet has hints of AP (i think) and that puts me off, i prefer yours.

Thanks. I have been on and off about selling it for about a year, but I think it's unlikely to go anywhere at the moment.
I think it's a great watch that would be a shame to let go from your collection.

Still loving the JS today:

The 3239 Laureus is also on my list for the future, with competition from the Milgauss and Panerai.

Leaving aside the whole grammar police thing......... (Please ;) )

The probs with the Ingenieur range is the insane costs of the straps.

I was looking at the Ing Racer and the Twin Chrono and the straps ranged from 400 quid upwards!!!!!!

Well, that watch is meant is stay on bracelet all the time - like an AP (I wonder which came first Ingenieur or Royal Oak?), the bracelet completes the look of the watch.. You can get custom straps from custom makers for cheaper, if you intend to. But I wouldn't bother.

Semi agree, and I would buy it in a bracelet, but the racer just looks bloody fantastic on a rubber.
