    who likes blue? 16613

    been a while since I pulled this out, yet everytime I do I have it on for ages.
    Was keen on a platinum YM and actually walked out of the shop with it..but this one just screamed out loud from the display cabinet.
    Put it on the wrist, what did it for me was how the 'curve' of the YM's lugs were just a bit too svelte
    That and I like gold






    probably 1 of the best looking 2tone watches around






    different lighting different look every time



    the blue is stunning

    i much prefer this version to the newer 116613

    indigo almost!

    bezel gives off this weird sheen thats super duper cool


    very nice gold




    back looks good



    on a hirsch curved end waterproof leather












    cool blue



    wrist shot of course

    Too easy

    Once again, a delightful set of pictures Mikey
    Loving the blue; but not so much the yellow gold. Remember seeing one in a jeweller's window about 20 years ago with a price tag of (IIRC) around 3,000...... If only I could get one for that price now

    As I mentioned in the earlier WRUW thread, the combination with the blue strap is absolutely stunning! I'm generally not a fan of most two tone watches but I do like both the Blue and black dial subs (although maybe not for me).

    I just got thinking that the blue strap combo also reminds me a bit of Ulysse Nardin. If I remember right you do like rather bold designs... you dont have a UN do you?

    Gorgeous, but just not my style. I wish it was as it makes me drool every time I see one, in pictures and in real life.
