    They are both absolutely FABULOUS! But I'll take the GP, thanks, coz I'm a sucker for arabics.

    Am I the onle one who doesn't like the Parmigiani logo? Apart from that they are both pretty. I like the curved band on the GP.

    Kind of small and boring aren't they?

    I'm with cottontop. They are beautiful to be sure and I would be happy with either one. But they are also somewhat plain, and I would take something like a Patrimony over these any day, just on account of having a bit more character....

    In the first all I see is barrel distortion and in the second, a turtle.
