    Very nice, Seawolf! Hope you get what you want. Super classic design. HS

    When I looked up the omega constellation manhattan, all I see are ladies' sizes. Post a pic if you have one. I'm curious. Cool on the Rolex. I think you'll be very pleased. My 39mm is brutally comfortable and versatile IMO. HS

    The Rolex boutique here in the Galleria sees a lot of traffic. They had the Oyster Perpetual 39mm in grape back when I bought mine last year. Good looking watch. They had several of the smaller versions (e.g. 36mm and smaller). To get the new white 39mm (or the black for that matter) I had to order it and wait. They are so back ordered on Daytonas that, to their credit, they don't even accept waiting list additions. I'm waitlisted at a reputable dealer in a smaller town. A friend's uncle that seemed pretty straight forward and requested no deposit. We'll see if it does any good. Maybe by then my tastes will have changed...LOL. I might perish before it shows but nothing to lose. We'll see... HS P.S. I preferred the Dark Rhodium to the Grape...

    I have read that they controlled supply and worked in the last several years to manage length. So much so I had to wait for my 39mm oyster perpetual...their most basic watch I figure. I had not appreciated the extent of it. Effective but not so nice. I take your point on the text being quite copious, but to my eyes the dial is sexxxxxy. And I really like a few other things: it's 40mm, it's not too tall and there is no date / cyclops. I also like the auto racing link even if that's not the way it all started... HS

    That's about how long the wait list is supposedly so it looks like I'll be waiting either way...LOL. My next purchase will likely be a brown alligator strap for the FOIS Omega. It's a bit of an odd sized strap at 19mm/16mm, and I want a deployment clasp...I really do not enjoy fiddling with the simple clasp. I'm thinking this one will do the trick if they can make it in my size... HS

    I have not made the leap to an Apple watch. Everything in the house including the phones is Apple other than a Windows computer at work and one I used to keep for running my datalogging and tuning on my hot rod. Now I'm running VMWare Fusion fairly successfully on my Mac Air so I'm not using the POC HP Windows laptop at all....but no Apple watch. I don't have a reason other than I can't see myself wearing one at work and I really like my newfound mechanical watch crack habit... There is one more watch I have to own before it's all said and done (for now anyhoo...). A stainless Daytona. Newish not vintage. Likely in black face. We'll see how it goes. I have a hard time getting comfortable paying $20K plus for a $12K stainless watch so we'll see if waiting for one does any good. HS
  8. Best thing I've listened to in a while....thank you, Dusty! I went down the rabbit hole on Trip Hop some years back and really enjoy M.A. Admittedly, never heard them live and to get to see them on vid is very cool. Score! HS

    The Saxonia is a lovely dress watch. Love the shot of the back as much or more than the front. Amazing work for the money. HS

    Good stuff, Dave. Yes...time for a service on the JLC no doubt. Not inexpensive, but you'll be happier for it. On a personal note, I am slowly looking for brown alligator bands with a deployment clasp for my FOIS Speedy. The brown leather band is nice and supple, but it doesn't move me. I think a medium brown alligator with a nice deployment will really put me over the moon with this watch...no pun intended. Well, perhaps a poor pun... HS
