"Dressy/Bold" nails it. This is a really nice looking watch and definitely a departure from the divers----but still plenty hefty/masculine. What I like the most about it is that at a first glance, it looks very spartan/basic (in an uncluttered/good way). But as you view it several times, you start seeing that in fact there are quite a few details. This tells me that there was a lot of care put into the design----they integrate the details beautifully into the overall design----giving you something new to look at whenever you're wearing the watch. To me, this is the type of watch that you can have for decades and it will be a classic.

Nice looking, Jeff. I like the display back (shown at the site below).

Here's a short article about the Grand Touring, with lots of photos and a video.

Wow - I love it. Definitely nicer in your pictures than others that I have seen. I'm guessing that it wears a bit between the Sumo and OSD in size?

Anyhow, well done - that's a looker and very unique in your collection. A diver bezel is usually a must for me, but that one might be going on my wish list...

It's exactly the same size as the Sumo. Perfect.

Speaking of watches, I think this Omega commercial is just awesome. A variation of it is running during the Sochi Winter Olympics on NBC.

Gary: I work in advertising---I had not seen that Omega commercial you linked to. It's fantastic.

Nice ad. You mean its an ad that isn't selling via sex or power?

Anyhow, my only problem with the co-axial movement is that its so damn expensive. My very favorite watch may be the Planet Ocean Chronograph, and it costs around ~$8K new. Put in a more pedestrian movement and its half that price.
