Thanks, I luv these watches, its my fav brand by far...I also have a PAM320 as my daily and have my eyes on a nice 47MM at the moment, but we shall see


Great seeing you again as well. The GC is great, the interior is truly the best that BMW has laid out yet and as for the engine, it does have great power for every day, but i get in less trouble than the M6......not sure if you check on the 6er forums, if you hadnt seen the recent post, Calton has just purchased the M6GC for ED!!!! LOL! I cant wait to see it, he's gonna make me upgrade!!but im actually considering the M4/M3 next, but have a couple of years to go.

Hows the M3 treating you???

M3 is great, it's been flawless with no issues and only requiring regular oil changes. Warranty is up in Oct '14 but will hold onto it for a while, shopping extended warranties... Keeping an eye on the new M3/M4 but if I do make the jump it will the second model year! Will let BMW work out the bugs.

Calton is the man! MRGC will be sweet, can't wait to see the mods...

Laurent Ferrier - Galet Traveler - Dual time zone watch. Comes in midnight blue, but also other colors. This is a serious "insider's" watch. The guy who makes them spent years making PP watches and he came in third place behind Paul Newman at the LeMans 24 hour race of 1979. LF makes other watch models too, but the Traveler is the only one I know of that offers a blue dial.

All the Best.

LF is definitely a "bargain" watch for folks who want PP quality and complications, but don't want to spend PP money for them. You know me, I'm all about value for dollar spent.

You can expect $28K+ new. The upside is that LF is a small enough maker that you can get your watch customized and not pay much more.

All the best.

another cool de Bethune. slats at top are power reserve (mostly red, not much left). I tried this one on in Vegas


a cool blue watch from FP Journe. case is tantalum. Tried on at the NYC boutique. this one's on my short list.



and a shot from IWC's booth at 2013's IBG (non BMW car content, too)


I'll post my blue watches soon.
