I love me some Omega S____masters. More Speed than Sea, but I don't discriminate either way. I'd love a PAN, but I'd be too scared to wear it.

Thread derailment!!

I have a couple Rolexes, a old submariner and an aviator, but have 2 ETA 2824-2 swiss movement watches I wear most all the time. A military Marathon with tritium green tubes, but with an orange one at 12. Also on the hands. Does not neet to be charged to glow. It's radioactive.

The other is an Invicta (looks like a Rolex) but has a solid SS links in the bracelet, and a view back so you can see the ETA movement. I absoluty LOVE that watch. All are chronograph adjusted for accuracy. I really like the ETA movement. Somthing about a "real" watch. I really like to see the inside.

Hey John are talking about the 8927 Invicta Pro Diver Collection, I gave her an Invicta for her Birthday, so she ordered me one for Father's day.

I'd have to check. But think so. Invicta changed to a SW movement a copy of the ETA. I got mine in around 2000 IIRC.

Panerai is not so bad as long as you buy pre-owned because "new" is too rich for my blood as well...lol.

The one(s) I lust after aren't any more affordable to me used lol. For that kind of money I'm not rolling dice, which means buying from sellers of a very specific sort of repute, which means paying a lot more than the deal you may get on ebay. Also: I have way too many Invictas.

Not sure if we are still talking about steering wheels or not but my other car has a hard carbon fiber wheel like that and I hate it, Ill be switching it out. The top (non leather) part gets really hot in the summer and really cold in the winter, and my hands spend a lot of time at 10:00 - 12:00. Its also slippery unless youre wearing gloves and sweaty hands. I also found it annoying to go from leather to carbon to leather to carbon etc every time I drove it. I like a consistent feel of the wheel. My .02c

Luckily that has not been my experience but it sounds like a difference of preferences.

Also relating to the watch topic I would love to have a Hublot Big Bang. I've always thought the design called to me. Such a great watch and not as trite as a Rolex IMO.
