Very nice! You guys are pimps. I look forward to having daily options like that! ;-)

Wolf, congrats! Gorgeous! Forget the viper and get a continental gt convertible to match! Both are equally impractical island rides.

Nice, I assume that's the 44mm version?

I prefer the bi-compax Superocean dial (better symmetry) and the ETA 7753 based movement (easier to get fixed) over their fancier offerings. Congrats and may you have health to enjoy!

Yep, 44mm.

I've always liked the Hublot Big Bang. While I was in Bangkok I stumbled upon serial number 1/250. It's a $25k watch that I got a smokin' deal on it for $90. I swear it's real.

Sorta true. No whores or tattoos. My wife wouldn't approve of either.

I generally find Breitlings to be a little too 'busy' for my tastes, but I really like that one! Nice score!

Is that a Greg Stevens strap?

I've got several of his pieces. Second to none...

I've had a few of his. They are nice. My favorite is my Europelli Baseball Strap.

If anyone is interested in a Tissot T-Race Chrono I am selling mine to make room. Looking to get $600. Comes with all paperwork, box, warranty card, and appraisal for $750.

I've got a few panerai, but seem to wear this one more than the others lately. 372 on Greg Stevens leather and a Scott Namken (snmetalworks on IG) tantalum/zircuti buckle.

There's a buckle you don't see every day. I've known Scott long before he started snmetalworks. The man is a true craftsman and one of the nicest guys I know. Check him out if you're looking for some unique Damascus, Mokume, and Moku-Ti buckles, rings, gages, tops, and what-nots.

I have 8 Doxa's (or is it Doxi?). The one above was used by Fabien Cousteau's Mission 31 team to break his Grandfathers underwater duration record. It's a bit large at 44mm but the light Titanium case gives it a good balance.

Scott really is the nicest guy you'd ever meet.

He made a set of 4 of these tantalum buckles for me to give as Christmas gifts last year. He hated working with the stuff, not sure he's done anything with it since.
