If not a Black Bay steel how about a Fortis? I've been eyeing up the white faced version with a ceramic bezel but it also comes in steel as well as with a black face if you prefer. Pic of white faced steel below.

Having just put my Speedy Moonwatch on leather I quite fancy a Wally Schirra FOIS now!

Good shout. I do like the Fortis, have posted about them before in this thread.

Page and Cooper have currently got an ex-display Fortis Classic Cosmonauts Chronograph Steel p.m. which I quite like.

Unfortunately further collection consolidation would be required, which I'm not currently in the mood for.

My current dreams are for something with a bit of Heritage (style).

Wow. Just had a quick look on Page and Cooper. Fortis prices have been slashed out here in Oz and are actually quite a bit cheaper. The steel bezel is around the equivalent of £1500 brand new over here.

A lot of Page & Cooper's watches, notably Sinn, Damasko, Fortis and Hanhart have been hit by the recent exchange rate changes and lowering of GBP value.

However, Fortis have for some time been subject to heavy discounting by some (mostly USA) retailers. Page & Cooper are, though, not only approved dealers for Fortis watches, but their UK agent and aftersales centre.

Dreamed about that before and might be a purchase some day.

However, currently dreaming more with my head in the clouds.

Best place to be my friend!

I have been reading up on this one and just love the singularity of design ethos.

There is always room for another 7750. (Albeit heavily modified)

I don't have a pic but at a meeting today, i was chatting to one of our older ops managers, a guy c 60. He was wearing a 1964 Navitimer which he said he got given when he was 18 and had owned ever since. Was in really good original condition, suspect worth a few £K's now as well. A sensible size too, looked about 40-42mm maybe. Must have been massive in its day.

^^ it was one of these which seem to go for between £3-4k depending on condition. Very nice wearable vintage at 41mm.
