    Wore the quartz SMP today but quite a few things are changing in my collection this week. Most of those changes led to me realizing the most comfortable watch to wear that I've ever owned is the Rolex GMT 16700 followed by the Bond SMP on a Speedy bracelet.

    - Sold the Polar to a friend. He's put a deposit down on it and will pay the rest once he closes on his house in a few months.
    - Traded the SubC for a coke GMT II 16710.
    - Picked up an auto SMP Bond. Will switch that to the Speedy bracelet pictured above, put the original Bond bracelet back on the quartz and list that for sale shortly.
    - May hang on to the GMT II for a bit but my eventual goal is to get an older Sub.
    Did you get the ceramic? The wave dial is the watch I get the most wrist time with, much thinner

      Also, surprised you sold the polar man. What made you sell it? Currently my grail, hope to buy it later this year

        [MENTION=12021]idvsego[/MENTION] I like the look of that Invicta mod.


        As for me. I'm traveling all week and limited to one watch. The lucky winner for road show/week away is...

          thanks. I built it from spare or bargain parts so I could have a black 12 hour bezel watch and like it way more than I thought I would.

          twins...pretty much

            I got the last auto version of the wave dial Bonds - 2220.80. I always loved the Bond SMP but could never get a comfortable feel with that bracelet. Once I put it on the Speedy style bracelet, it wears perfectly for me.

            I liked the Pepsi GMT more. I'm trying to be better about sticking to a 3 watch rotation. The Omega 2220 and the Pepsi GMT have taken up 2 of those slots. I still want some sort of Sub so I've been looking at older models for sale. The MaxiCase on the new SubC just felt off to me.

              I liked my new SKX009 so much that I also picked up a SKX007... AND have the gold/orange variant, SKX011, incoming.

                The 2531.80 is the most comfortable watch I've worn to date imo. I initially bought it to eventually trade up to an smpc, but now I can't let it go.

                    New-to-me Seiko Turtle PADI arrived last night. Nicer looking and more wearable size than I expected (but I have large wrists). Some alignment issues I want to see if I can get worked out.

                    Was planning on getting a dress/casual watch next, but then summer vacation plans were made that will involve a lot of water time. So, this. I actually like a couple of the other color ways a little better but the PADI adds better variety to my rotation. Need to get some natos that fit now.

                        What strap is that and what do you think of it? I am always looking for more canvas options.

                          Haha that's the Hadley Roma, I think weve talked about this before. I messaged art from drunk art straps today though, those look amazing.

                            That grey helm looks pretty nice

                              Lol... I am sure. If I remembered every person I talked to about watches my brain would explode.

                                No it was funny cuz I just got Deja vu. Also into the canvas look though, it's usually that or nato for me. Thinking about trying Erica's straps too they look cool
