    Two for the price of one! Good idea.

    The more I see the GMT with the Pepsi bezel, the more I fall in love with it.

    I wonder what would happen if I just rolled into an AD and told them I wanted to buy one?

    Thinking of purchasing this @45mm. Typically too big for me, but am obsessed by the look... IMG_3035.jpg

    Today's watch choice is my Apple Series 4 watch in black stainless steel, with a black rubber strap. The watch looks like hell on one's wrist, but it does provide valuable feedback as to your activity levels and related cardiac functioning throughout the day! It may be big, ugly and not very stylish, but it can badger one out of an overly sedentary lifestyle, provide critical medical information to the wearer and contact medical authorities, if necessary and it can serve as your iphone, eliminating the need to carry the more inconveniently (much larger) sized iphone on your person. Not too bad, eh? ;)

    Looks fine to me - it's a Panerai - it's not supposed to look small and discreet.

    I've been wearing this offering from a (very much) lesser-known brand of late. I love the styling - like the lovechild of a Royal Oak and a Nautilus.

    Great look, I am personally a huge fan of Panerai. If you want the same DNA but something slightly smaller, you may consider the Radiomir PAM 574. 42mm, although you give up the wire lugs and onion crown.

    Very nice! Looks great. The dial layout, particularly the applied indices and hands, reminds me of a Zenith Defy Classic. I really like how the day/date windows are positioned at 6 o'clock.

    Do you have a display caseback? I have to admit, this brand was mostly unknown to me as well - after a little interneting, does your piece have an updated/restored vintage movement in it??

    Thanks! And yes to the display back. Only the various limited edition OHM (Original Historical Movement) Series house classic vintage calibers. Mine has a more pedestrian Sellita. I am eyeing the tank-shaped OHM as my next buy.

    Only owning one would drive me nuts, but if you're only going to have one, that's a pretty damn good choice for it. Nicely chosen.

    I'm wearing my new Nomos Club Campus. I picked it up at a new local AD during a launch event for Nomos. I went in just to look and see how these smaller Club models fit compared to my old Ahoi and instantly fell in love. The Ahoi was gorgeous but fit horribly. This one is gorgeous and fits beautifully.

    (The photo is from a couple of days ago but I'm wearing it again so I thought I'd recycle it.)

    Now I need to stop back into the store this afternoon and pick up the Wolf watch winder box that was included as a "gift with purchase" for buying during the launch.
