Today I've been dreaming about the... older Explorer II :thumbup: . The polar one this time. I tried one on today, and I much prefer it to the black one. Enough for it to move to number 1 position on my wants list. I really wanted to commit blasphemy and try it on a leather strap, but I didn't get the chance. I just need to weigh up whether it's worth selling my Omegas and Breitling to get one (probably yes).
First in line for the Breitling please?!

I cannot think of any reason why one should not dream about a Cartier Tank!

Edit:

I am still dreaming about this watch, but having read about the costs for revisions of Reversos, I am having second thoughts (I have already got 1/4th of the funds and was planning to get one in December)

Image

But as Nomos is going to present five new models next week during the Baselworld, the Reverso might soon be replaced by something else.
Nomos, help me out here!

Been feeling this watch for a while too. Very much like it on the bracelet. Think it's the flat look it has however I bought something just as good and still haven't posted pictures of it! :oops:

Give a day before the peace and beauty of these watches is disrupted by another bleedin' Rolex pic :lol:

I don't think that AVO can be tempted by any picture of any Rolex watch. Maybe we need some Rolex Cellini pictures here. Or pictures of vintage Rolex pocket watches?

This is extremely nice and clean for an Airman but 42mm, a frustrating size :( new for 2015.

No idea why, but I would love to have this in the watch box. There is something about it that appeals to my wacky nature.

I still prefer the 'vintage', but again, too big:

But what a stunner :thumbup:
