    I will probably buy a head only watch , since it will be a strapbeatch. I like the idea of a semi vintage Rolex on a strap.

    I like the 216570 as well but do not think it looks as good on a strap (besides, it's lug width is 21 mm, I've got a load of nice 20 mm straps).
    I also like the drilled lugs but against the more modern (3186) movement is a tough call. I also think that the 16570 looks better off the bracelet than the 216570.

    One of my personal dislikes is for the 2824 movement. Nothing wrong with it; I just donít like it. One reason is Iíve had either two or three Sinn 556ís sent back for winding issues. I love the simplicity of the Sinn 556 but donít like its 2824. On the other hand the Sinn 856 is powered by smooth winding 2892 movement with several other nice features that make it the ultimate tool watch but at greater expense than the 556.
    While I never thought the manual winding of the 2824 as stiff, the 2892 is definitely lighter to wind.

    I rarely travel anymore. Hell, I haven’t had a proper vacation since 2015. But we’ve got family in all four US time zones, family in Europe and Korea, and some events at work are done according to Zulu time (I’m looking at such an email right now).

    Maybe what would be best for me would be a GMT of any flavor but with a rotating bezel.
    To keep track of multiple time zones nothing beats a smart watch.

    I really appreciate the easy of a jumping hour hand. 1 - 0 in favour of PO over Sub ;)

    I really don't see that value of a GMT for keeping track of 2-3 time zones. So for me, my interest is more on looks than function.

    True about smartwatches and multiple time zones. Iíve got four on this screen but can run up to eight (plus local time, so nine zones are possible).

    The graphics look slightly better than my Garmin.

    Itís disheartening how often bad decisions are made based on advertisements with pictures. My worst purchase in recent memory was the Railmaster LE. I like the ďregularĒ 40mm Railmaster but what a disappointment the Railmaster LE was - wears small, too much bling and overpriced.
