      When I get a new job, I normally splurge and buy a case of ammo...I guess I'm out of my league here.

      Very nice. I bought my first Tag last month and have been very happy with it. Mine was no where as nice as that though.

      Very nice. My gf said she'll buy it for me as a wedding gift. I made sure she knows the exact name and color ...

      Very nice choice

      Thanks a lot! Im still in love with it.

      This one was the display piece and as such has a little ding on the top of the case (just visible in the first pic just past 11 o'clock) so they ordered me a replacement, telling it would be 4-12 weeks for it to come in. They also told me to just wear the one that I have and not worry about if it gets damaged. My new untouched replacement has just shown up.

      Bloomingdale's customer service gets a big thumbs up from me.

      want want want. I have a thing (nohomo) for Mcqueen anyway so this is right up my alley.

      somewhat related question, which watch is Prost wearing on the Tag website? looks like a Monaco w/ a Gulf racing face?

      I have to laugh when someone calls me an a*****e. I've been called far worse than that.

      That is correct. I think that is the newest version of the Gulf Monaco.

      Awesome watch, I want one so badly!

      Here is Steve McQueen wearing his in Le Mans. It is also the same watch that Jesse gave Walt in Breaking Bad.

      Yeah, for sure.


      I've never really looked at tank style watches; I'm going to have to come back and look at it some more.

      Great heritage behind it, too.

      I met his daughter a few years ago, and really started to appreciate the man. (I'm too young to remember him).

      Slightly on topic, I can see myself spontaneously picking up a Daytona on Paul Newman birthday or anniversary of his death one of these years.
