    There are actual diamonds in there, but they are ensconced in some faceted metal bits designed to enhance the bling. Cheesy, maybe, I agree they should have left it with the bare diamonds rather than adding the garish extra shine.

    Nice looking RX. They have one of the sweetest chassis' out there, a damn bargain for the price. I presume the lug covers are removed for the trackwork?

    BTW I opted agains buying that watch. I almost let deep discounts override good taste. And frankly, 3 watches is enough...right? RIGHT??

    I have had one watch for the last 9 years.

    I must be strange.

    Nope, because so have I. A Casio G-Shock. It's my newer watch of the two I have - the older one that I'm wearing now is 23 years old.

    Same competition wheels. Road is the ProDrive special castings from OZ ... not for racing as a ding is very expensive
    New tyres tho' , have a deal with Scottish MaxSport distributor so running RB5 competition road-legal (just) tyres, medium compound and then trying the softs, hopefully for next hill.

    My watches are for keeps. I had some Swatches I had around for a couple of years before they went bust. I just got into having watches, so the oldest of my current "fleet" is a year and a half old, but I anticipate hanging on to all of them for a good while. But watches are to men what shoes are to women, can't have too many

    Actually my nine year old watch is a Swatch...

    It's a bit battered now, showing the signs of age, but it has never missed a beat or let me down.

    I actually would like to buy a nice watch, but as is the case with so many other things (like replacing the computer I'm writing this on) it's down at the bottom of my list and I always I'm fine with what I have now and that I don't really need replacements... so I hold to my current stuff for a little longer and so it goes on...

    I had two of those super thin swatches. Great, but...I had the lens pop out of one, and the hands got bent, on the other, the band got too small and it cost more to get a new band than to replace it

    It is kind of a fanboy thing, these fine watches. Mine are all quartz movements though, kind of like a VW Passat compared to the BMW 6 for a basic Rolex, or Rolls-Royce or McLaren for...well, just about any other mechanical watch.
