I've tried the Racing Speedmaster which I believe is the same size case and it fitted really well (my daily watch is a Moonwatch).

Give it a try but the price is what would prevent me from buying it.

Ceramic, platinum and white gold loveliness.
Another that I had and moved on ](*,). There's been a few on here I've had or own recently (I have the rhodium dial Rolex OP 39 too :lol: ) so I hope it doesn't come off as "braggy" that I'm posting picture of them!

Here's a picture of it on a 7" wrist it it helps......The short lug to lug distance means it wears well on smaller wrists, it's more the hight you have to be concerned with:

I really liked the platinum dial, it looks amazing in the sun and the ceramic case is a joy to wear. Not long after I sold it I tried the Sedna gold / meteorite on and managed to track one down at a reasonable price. One of my top 3 watches for sure:

I don't think you could go wrong with any of them!

I have been day dreaming about the Sinn U50. Should I sell my Omega SMP to fund the purchase? I don't think so but very ......

Surprising the difference a strap can make.

I've admired the Farer Leven since its release, but not enough to buy. Recently saw a pic on the orange fitted strap and now I want one.

I mean, how cool does that thing look now ...

OK, I can delete one from my list, I've just placed my order for the last one (of 10 limited edition) Magrette TE AO MĀRAMA.
Great response from enquiries to their website and really looking forward to receiving the watch in 2-3 weeks.

This, but I really shouldn't have to be ...

Literally just been returned to Longines for the 2nd time, a couple of hours after receiving it.
Both aesthetic issues, the 2nd one a consequence of "fixing" the 1st.

P155ed off is an understatement! :evil:

I decided late last year that the next decent watches that I would buy would be:
- new model BLNR GMT Master II (a GMT with a bit a of blue on the bezel and on one of the hands)
- a BB58 with a blue dial and bezel (yes I know it hadn’t been released then, but I was prepared to wait until it was)

I may have changed my mind. :D

This will do nicely. Two for the price of one...

Look away now if you have an objection to crowns and date wheels at four (and if you think a matching date wheel is required - sorry you are beyond help :))

Stunning looking watch and decent size now rather than the old 44mm. I just have one question though - why a fixed bezel not rotating?
