Anyway, I always love seeing photos of your Gentleman's Watch.
    Exactly. It's a little too close to my AT in design. I absolutely love the Railmaster. Forum member 'runitout' has the 36mm model and whenever I see it, my resolve erodes a little more. One day, I may just crack and get one, but I might opt for the 39mm model. Although, the 36mil Raily is just perfect. Then again, I quite like the 1016 Rolex Explorer, too. But they cost more than I'd like to pay.
    It's a slippery slope, this watch collecting gig.

    Now, if you had to go into town to see your bank manager, who would you rather dress like?
    Luckily, Roddy boy came to his senses and began dressing his age.

    Then there were these guys;



    Cary Grant, the all-time embodiment of old Hollywood movie star mythology. I was driving my mother's car back in 1986 when I heard on the radio that he had died. I nearly hit a tree.

    And the other legend, Bogart;



    His Rick Blaine character in "Casablanca" (Dir: Michael Curtiz, 1942) was described as "Two parts Hemingway, one part Scott Fitzgerald'. Every man should aspire to that. If there were more Rick Blaines around, the world would be a better place.

    I could go on, but these are the type of 'gentlemen' that the AquaTerra (1st Gen) was made for.

    It's a shame about "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". That film pretty much convinced Connery to retire from acting. And don't even get me started on what a wasted opportunity "The Rock" was. That could have been a great film.

    +1, I'm not a fan of over sized watches but looks to me that it sits fine on your wrist.

    Hiro! Where've you been, man? We haven't seen you around in a long time. Hope all is well.

    I remember you sold that beautiful Railmaster. What a shame. You wore that MS RM perfectly. I also remember when you bought the very nice Longines 19 mm strap to use with it. A great fit, IMO. I need a strap just like that.

    Anyway, hope you stick around.

    Nice! It's about time to clean up that watch, though! Getting a bit dirty around the edges. Beautiful watch, nonetheless.



    This is really cool... We're getting to see a lot of models we don't always get to see. Maybe we'll get to a point where all sizes and color combos get represented! Please keep the photos coming! And for those with less common models, please include the model number and maybe a size description. Thanks!

    Hi Dixan! My family and I are doing well. Thanks! I was in Japan for several months. Yea, I miss my Railmaster a lot.

    Hope everything is going well for you.

    Best,
    Hiro
