thanks - this will give me something to think about.
Rob - I definitely agree with the classic vs. what's in/hot right now. The one reason I like the IWC white gold is because of that greyish face.
In my virgin watch travels, it was the first I had seen and really liked it. I'm leaning toward the Panerai right now but for some reason really want to like the Patek. I'm going to try an Aquanaut.
Regarding the Royal Oak, I've been turned off lately. Not sure why but not interested.
I'm in absolutely no rush.
Thanks for the TimeZone referral.
