    not really group signatures but i've been playing around with my 1887 for some possibilities.








    different proportions


    EDIT:
    two more

    I'd love to have the exact font that they use on the rotor but can't quite figure out what it is.
    Gut says they might be using two different fonts for the text and for the numbers.

    This is a love at first sight for me when i first saw it. Nice cal.1887 I'm saving for this one and waiting for another version will be release here in Australia around September or October 2011. I can't wait :) there's not much difference I think.

    I've actually seen the version 2 and version 3 of the 1887 when I was in Hong Kong and they're a lot different looking, for me at least. When you look at photos, the version 2 might look plain and boring compared to the version 3 but after seeing it in the metal, the version 2 wins it for me. The raised chrome subdials made it look cheap and the inside tachymeter made it look too busy. The v2 just looks elegant in person and I didn't really mind not having a tachymeter since the 1887 looks better as sort of a dress watch anyway that you can wear with jeans, too. So if you have a chance to see the version 2, I suggest you do it just in case they run out.

    I think the V3 looks better in white. Not sure why but in white, the V2 looks a bit flat and plain and the detail of the V3 helps lift it.
    In black though, the V3 ends up looking much too busy; probably because of the contrast between black face and silver details. As you say, the V2 in black looks more elegant like a dress watch. In a way, they end up being very different looking watches between V2, V3 then again in black or in white.

    I love my black/black V2 but the V3 is white is tempting (but not as tempting as the 300SLR...)
    If only the polished steel case wasn't so much of a scratch magnet.



    PS: to the owners out there - we need more photos of the 300SLR.

    Re: The Carrera Club

    I guess I`m joining the club as well :)


    I bought this watch (WAV511C) on holiday in New York. Coming home to Norway I just learned that it costs nearly 2000$ more here, I`d say that`s a good deal!


    I`m considering buying a brown leather strap, but visited the AD in Norway today and found out that it`s about 1000$ for the strap, which I find quite steep..

    Can anyone tell me what the leather straps go for in the US?

    Nice GC6!

    These watches only came in steel or gator strap. Strap alone is close to $400USD and that's without the clasp which is another $200-300USD.

    Your best bet is to try an online strap vendor to avoid these high prices.
