Nice, Steinhart watches look really great value for money.

As I am getting a new watch for Christmas, approved by my wife I am think of the Nav B-Uhr 47 Handaufzug, but I am still drawn to the Orange/Black CW 316L

Finding it hard to decide which!

I've got the black dialled one with yellow hands. I'd like basically the same watch with different colours too :thumbup:

I've never tried a Reverso on. I really must make an effort on that front.

Not exactly dreaming but certainly contemplating one of these: SKX009,SRP779 or the SRPA21 (Padi)
Here’s the dilemma; I want a Pepsi bezel Seiko. Everyone needs an SKX in the collection at some point, right? I love my current Turtle and the SRP779 isn’t much more expensive than the SKX! Then, if I decide on the SRP777J, it isn’t much more of a stretch to the Padi! But, is the Padi too close in appearance to my Blue Lagoon with the blue dial?
Just got to make my mind up which one and then source at the best price.

Excuse the terrible picture, but I reckon this is one two-tone watch I could definitely go for:

I have indeed, scooter. He's advertising a used watch at list, claiming it's hard to buy. I tried one on this morning - both strap and bracelet versions were in stock.

I like it a lot on the leather strap. On the bracelet, it's too much gold for my taste - although it's probably one of the most subtle two-tone watches I've seen.

The AD told me there is enough gold on the bracelet/watch to handle at least five refinishes - which probably means it will look good for a lifetime.

I think you're right.

Leather does seem to be the right choice for this one.

Did you try on anything else whilst out and about?
