Thanks Dan. I love it, just ordered a custom black gator strap for it with a deployant! If their came a day I had to narrow it down to the 2 perfect watches for me it would be my 16610 and the Pilot Spitfire Chrono!

Hope you like the deployant clasp. I do on my Pilot Chrono. I think it makes it a lot easier plus the strap doesn't wear as much. Some have problems with it depending on their wrist size though.

Thanks Danny, the 1803 is beautiful, even up close. The dial on the Tudor 'dateona' is a rare cote de geneve pattern.

Spectacular pictures everyone... I am so tempted to show my complete hand right now... I am trying to fight the temptation, however, I must adopt Uncle Ken's wise words that it's better safe than sorry ... I'm still trying to figure out why folks believe Mike Wood has the largest collection out there?

So I have since sold my Only rolex i had since i plan to upgrade to a SubC within a month or so. For now i am down to where my watch attraction started. I know a lot of you guys are not fans of Invicta, but for the price, i cant beat it right now.



The one on the top right was my first real substantial watch. Invicta 4604 Russian Diver, Stainless Steel.
and the one on the bottom right is my daily wearer at the moment :)

Ohh yeah, and the stuff in the backround is part of another passion of mine, Bodybuilding :)

Call it modest if you like, but I'd say just about perfect!
