I have got the hang of posting photos from photobucket, but not if I am just trying to use an image direct from the Internet. Would I have to upload the Internet image to photobucket first to make it work? Thanks.

^^^ yeah, saw that pic on WUS earlier. I assume that it was taken under strong light, and that the dial is actually a little darker.

My local(ish) AD has an IWC exhibition on at the moment, so I may take a closer look in the next couple of weeks - assuming they return my ingenieur from the service centre.

Too much going on there for me, and it looks a little cheaper than it actually is in my opinion!

The other Longines Moonphases are gorgeous though.

Apart from a non-genuine bezel insert and a Planet Ocean second hand it looks fine doesn't it? I like the PO second hand on the sword handed SMPs anyway, but I'd have stuck with a genuine blue bezel instead of the aftermarket one. Oh, hang on, I did...

I still have the original (complete) polished bezel, not just an insert.... Mine still has the original second hand too...

From the look of the photo, I think Andy is looking for a titanium SMP though...
