  1. Nice you were able to test drive it I guess you put down a security deposit or the full payment with a gentlemans word of honor!!!
  2. It's a dark picture, but I'm guessing that's the new Pepsi GMT?
  3. Personally do not believe in a break in period for watches, if a watch runs out of whack out of the box, it isn't going to improve much over time. Tudor does not send their ETA movements for chronometre certification, as such there is no guarantee of accuracy. I do believe that it is at least a top grade 2824 ticking in the Pelagos, so anything more than +10s per day is not good. My black bay before I sold it was almost spot on out of the box. Lucky I guess. I would send it in for regulation by RSC?
  4. On the Omega Forum there is a thread of owner cars. Hopefully collecting my new car tomorrow so thought I would start a thread on here. Show us your car.....or cars....
  5. It looks great on the strap, though -- the unusual lug shape makes the connection point much more interesting, and the black and yellow complements the dial better than the steel bracelet. For me, seeing the strap version turned the watch from a "Meh" into "Oh, that's kinda cool."
  6. Just took delivery of my pre-ordered North Flag. I got the bracelet version, but also ordered the leather strap which I put on. I really like the way the yellow stitching highlights the yellow accents on the dial. So far, I'm very pleased with the watch!

    Yes I did. A very nice gentleman indeed. He did not have a new BLNR though. He has a used one for a couple of hundred dollars less than what I paid for a new one. I ended up buying a new one from an AD here in the Tampa area. $9400 OTD with a 10 year warranty and a one time free polishing. They also resized some rings for me at no cost. I've lost some weight so I needed that done. I will post pictures in a little bit. I really like this timepiece. Thanks for all the info.

    Depends where you go, most AD and BT around here already stock them months ago. Same goes for daytona, i can walk in and pag msrp and even get a small discount on gmt batman.
  9. I'm not sure why, but B&W pictures always seem to look that bit more 'professional' to me. Good effort, some nice pictures there.
  10. I didn't even know steinhart did straps. Some of them look very good for the money. Is the nato buckle easy to put on to the perlon? Quite like the look of the perlon. Somewhere I've seen a sand coloured strap on a red BB which looked really good too. Thanks for the info
  11. I agree, the camo natos (or zulus, I can never tell) look very good on the Pelagos. But I just know my better half would say no if I wore one on one of my watches. She didn't even like the factory nylon strap that came with my Black Bay.
  12. Sticks to make it seem like more of a sportswatch. Romans to make it seem like more of dress watch.
  13. Very Nice ! Mike B , Canada ⌚
