And don't necessarily get all the nuances, but I'm also in the process of selling my PAM and moving on. So, I guess, congrats? BTW, can anyone tell me how many posts it takes to access the "rumble" page a few friends have told me about? Nah,don't tell me, I may just start posting BS so I can access ...

I'm detecting a pattern here..

Ever since I picked up my 6309, it seems that I'm primarily drawn to watches with the same basic "cushion" shape. I've come to really like the retro look, and the shape allows me to wear a fairly large case on my smallish wrist without any lug overhang. So far, so good! http://i168.photobucket.com/a...

Nice

What a great trio! BTW, I had a 243 and while it does wear a bit thicker than the 24, it's worth it, the 1950 case is fantastic.

Thanks guys

And to answer a few questions: I'm pretty sure all but the NOS have the ceramic bezel insert.And as to the size,this is the smaller 100-I have a smallish 6.75" wrist, so there's no way in hell I could pull off the 300. And IMO, this wears rather large for a 42mm, I guess because it's so thick and so...

Aquadive arrived today

First impression: WOW! This is a beauty and the quality is right on: great fit and finish, sets and winds smoothly, bezel has a great mechanical feel to it. IMO this is an amazing value for a Swiss watch with 1000m WR, ceramic bezel, etc. Kudos to Aquadive for a great launch, this is a winner! http:...

Jeff,
it's a Pre-V of some flavor, pic stolen from the web. I just couldn't get over that patina when I saw it, so I made it my avatar.
Are you still making straps?
Once in a while, but not actively.
