That's a tricky one. The alt-z is basically the same as the WT, other than the city names, and you would lose your gorgeous white MBii.

On the other hand, the WT would complement your motley Bremont crew rather nicely............ :)

Great choice! It’s one of the watches on my Birthday shortlist for next month, but maybe just out of reach with current financial situation. I reckon the North Flag alongside my BBR would cover all bases in my lifestyle and I could get rid of everything else :shock: Now I’ll come back to reality as I couldn’t live with only 2 watches :D

It won't be an addition to the collection. I'd go Airco if that was the case but it sort of mixes the best parts of the alt1-z ( the chrono and the GMT) and white mbII (the legibility and less busyness) whilst offering a bit more of a dress look than either. Hard to find though.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

Personally I prefer the alt1-z and the mbII to this. The airco has grown on me a lot recently. Had a copy of Bremont townhouse this week interesting to flick through

I wasn't going to get a second Halios Seaforth, but I'm sorely tempted....

Sorry Steve but tried one on Saturday a bit underwhelmed but I had just bought the sub so probably wasn’t thinking straight :lol: one thing the AD salesman is very good at is letting you try on anything they have in the shop including a gold Daytona.....ba#@&+d :lol:

I can understand that, but for a non-diver I was surprised how much better it looked than in pics.

In a fantasy world, it's Sub all the way...but even Mrs T said how nice it looked! :shock:
