I do miss my GMT Coke. If I could have one back at the price I sold it for, that'd be it. Oh well...

The Steinhardt's are a neat option, but too big for me at 42mm (or 44 if you select their large versions). I've set some boundary rules (for now) that greatly limit me just to assure great fit, and to reduce the gotta haves down.

38mm or less for me from now on.

Stick to Coke, Pepsi is out of favor right now.

Great watches! I have jones'ed for a Steinhart GMT for a while. One day soon, I may just scratch that itch!

Yep. The Rolex are the MACDADDY of the GMT's. Unfortunately, with my hands and wrists, they look like a pimple on an elephant's ass.

Just too small.

Actually, he didn't really. Look at the crystal just above the E in SWISS MADE.

Here's a clearer shot.

No. You must look closer, it's there. Above the letter e in Made.

Or he's being facetious and referring the the watch crown rather than the Rolex logo.

THAT! is sick COOL!!!!!!

Not just that you still have your first (mine was a wind up Timex, LONG gone), but that it is a battery mechanical of some type. Intriguing.

Thanks and correct. Still runs. Just wind it and up and runs like a champ although I might get a few looks if I wore it to work.
