    All this mewling about who's going to play an imaginary sociopath just goes to show that mediocre white guys are the most sensitive bunch of pussies ever. :)

    I used to think so too, but now itís pretty much a case of not liking a watch without a Cyclops. ;)

    I used to think so too, but now I find that a contrasting colour date looks better in many cases. And I'd far rather have a plain white background than a close-but-not-quite match to the dial colour....

    Yes, definitely worth noting that it's going to cost a lot more to keep the AP running than the Submariner.

    I do like the 15703, but I wouldn't part with my 2003 LV to get one. The slimmer Sub is...

    Yes, it’s just that if you’re already prepared to spend ten kilopounds on a fancy gold sports chronograph, then an extra few to get the best of the breed might not be a complete dealbreaker....

    True, but there have been a few 18K-on-strap examples sold recently for under $15K USD, which isnít that far off £10K.

    Agreed ó completely beautiful. That's a very appealing watch, and one with an identity of its own.

    £10K can get you pretty close to a 16518 or 116518 (18K Daytona on strap) if you're patient.

    I'd go for one of those if you want a top-grade chronograph with a very conservatively-rated 100 metres...

    This is the correct answer. Omega's at their best when they come up with something distinctive that doesn't look like it's trying too hard. :)

    The 3235 is already in the two-tone versions (along with a redesigned case profile), so the steel model won't be far behind. Yes, I also think the classic 36 mm option works better on most wrists...

    If you don't want Rolex's perfected date function for some reason, it's the watch to have. (Though I prefer the 16610.)
