^I was tempted too but I've decided not to go for the Helberg with my recent string of purchases.

Started mulling over one of these, and now it is calling rather loudly.

Another Deepsea? Would you flip the other one?
Or you could wear one on each wrist, for better balance! :)

The weight of one on each wrist would cause back issues! :D

I originally ordered the Blue, but preferred the black when I went to get it.

Whilst it was the right choice to get the black (and that one is definitely staying!), I am now thinking of the blue again.......

Wifey (who is normally extremely relaxed about my disease :D ) however has insisted that as the black is not going, one of the others would have to make way for the blue, and that is causing me some issues!

Apparently the different dial colour is not justification enough for her!!! :(

I suppose it is no different to getting a blue and red black bay.

I had this on my wrist a few months back and was so close to puling the trigger. It's a stunning watch, the only Rolex I have found that really sold itself to me - and I have tried most. But and it's a big but, the price was just too much and there was no way I can justify spending that much for a watch - well maybe if I hadn't bought my DSOTM last year! I left the Boutique with a very heavy heart that day.

70's style divers, thread here:

But I had some time this morning so that lead me all over the net and back to a blue Sumo

and then to what I'd really like, Limited Edition of 2000:

Might be a little big?

and whilst on the topic of Seikos one of these is still needed:

This isn't good for my wallet, going to do some work now.

It was the green DeepSea text that pushed me over to the black, but I now think that I could live with it!

You are right about the price though. They are a big chunk of change.

The servicing is also a bit of a pain in that they cannot be done at a service centre and have to be sent back to the factory (with the associated time and cost increase)

The DSOTM is another dream for me! We need to see more photos!

Quite a few here: http://www.christopherwardforum.com/vie ... =8&t=26156

Although also a few blanks spaces, where I have deleted some to save storage.

I've been wearing the Stowa 1938 for the last couple of days but its reminding me a little of a Panerai.

The blue Weltzeit has crept back into my want list.

I'm off to Dusseldorf next week, and I should have time to have a good look at one. There is no way I'd buy Nomos in UK as the prices seem to be way out of kilter.

When I buy one, I'm sure I'm going to do the same.
Just wait till my canvas and nato straps arrive for the Stowa.

Tudor Heritage Black Bay One... I may see if it can be replicated by Tiger Concept, my pockets aren't deep enough for the real deal.
