    Graham 1695 Chronofighter (on the block)

    + a number of beaters....

    While I may purchase another Rolex (16570 or 216570), I like the variety of my collection....
    We have somewhat similar tastes.

    Unfortunately the ability to disengage from total jerks only comes with age for most people. Younger men have a tendency to behave like cavemen (primal instincts) and they only mellow after 55 or something.
    I’m waaay past 55.

    I have also had that pleasure and agree with your statement.

    I also organized corporate 24 hr Navy SEAL training with Don Mann (ex SEAL Team 6) back in 2003.

    Just about killed me

    Yeah, I am aware of that. I was just making a statement that younger ones tend to be hot blooded and get into fights for the smallest of issues. This coupled with different characters, hyper- sensitivity and how badly the written text on forums project tone & mood and we have a recipe for disaster.

    Jorgenl is that avatar picture actually of you or something else? If it is actually your picture, you look like a Viking who has gone through the Navy Seal program!

    Daaayuumm! Guessing you got some pricey OEM straps to hit that amount. I keep thinking it's time to get another OEM strap for my PAM 112. Got the assolutamente tan strap a while back....thinking time for a nice croc (around $450 AUD I think).

    I have several Greg Stevens Design straps, some yet to be mounted. I have one worn under every adverse condition I could think of, trying to see if I could actually wear it out. I was unsuccessful in doing so! I’ve done business with him for years. He is really a great guy!

    Nah.. I'm much better looking!

    The avatar is Ragnar Lothbruk from the series Vikings.

    Ragnar's hairstyle would not work for a Captain of Industry....
