    My suggestion would be just to offer an apology instead of a long answer justifying your previous response which a poster found offensive.

    I did. Post #61. Last line.

    It is always good to know the reasons behind a statement or a type of posting to prevent further misunderstandings, no? That's why post #64 was important.

    Obviously I meant an apology to ljb regarding the two tone GMT, not to the "atrocious" comment you made regarding the two tone sub. You know this and I know this, and it is waste of space and bandwidth here to post or read your tired explanations when all the fellow asked for was some courtesy and a well intentioned apology. If you are not capable of this, then think carefully about whether you are actually contributing here, or just using up electrons.

    So no, post #64 was not important because you neither offered an apology nor did you explain yourself in a way which is respectful to the poster who so eloquently asked (in much fewer words) for a common courtesy.

    Hm. I might have very well misunderstood ljb. I took his post as saying that he doesn't have said watch but was possibly thinking of getting a GMTIIc in two-tone. That he liked it. I understood his post as trying to calm my forward manner, not as asking for an apology. ljb and I have a very friendly history together. I have weighed in on previous matters of taste with him and we agreed. So I didn't think he was offended and wanted an apology. I think he was making fun of me in a friendly manner, which is totally OK. My own reading comprehension as a non-native speaker might have been at fault. I actually PM'ed him to tell him that I responded to his post.

    ljb, if you wanted an apology because I offended you, please say so. I really didn't get that from your post.

    Till

    EDIT: Pm'ed ljb again to clarify if I misunderstood his post.

    Thanks for the replies guys (and girl , didn`t realize there were any women here). My question leads directly into the next one.

    Just how durable is the gold on watches? I mean will it wear off? Because if it does (especially on a two-tone watch) that would look awful. I have a black-coloured titanium watch, and know that it looks pretty ugly at the places it has scratches and the gray(steel) pops out. I`m thinking of taking it for a paint job

    Well, thick plating will be wearing quite well for 20+ years. With massive gold obviously there won't be any problems. Even there it can change color slightly but nothing that can't be cleaned or polished. And plated watches can be re-plated. Just like you PVD coated watch can be re-coated.

    It is probably cheaper to buy a well plated watch and get it re-plated in 20 years than to buy a massive gold watch.

    Something like the Invicta above will probably not last very long. I don't even know if it's a real gold plating. The watch cost less than $100, IIRC.

    If you choose the right brand, like the one in post #61, you can get a beautiful 18k gold watch for $2000. I think that's a really nice investment.

    There are. We've a few others running around too. We've even infiltrated the mod team.

    I think this one has run its course. If you can't offer your opinion in a way that is respectful of others' choices, then don't offer it.

    I agree with Jeannie's action, and further to it I have deleted a bunch of posts that were downright nasty. We have a Rule here about treating each other with respect. If you can't see fit to do that, don't post in this forum.
