I think this may be a subtle hint.

Really? That's just not cool - ever!

Don't know the specifics, but this is the same guy who wanted me to wait for him so he could catch up. The guy should grow some stones. Also, not sure if it's related but there was a wallet lost at SITM and then later found less $300 cash. Coincidence?

He said he wanted to come to Sharks in Hell. If I see him do you want me to take a machete and chop off his hand? Happy to do it! I'll send back the appendage - think of it as a display model.

To change the tone of this thread...

I often get "nice car" comments whereever I happen to stop in the Iris Blue GTS. However, I've found I am getting a LOT of "Cool Watch" comments since wearing the Limited Edition Watch Celebrating the Porsche 928!

Anyone else?

I have had many compliments on the watch. I really enjoy wearing it.

I have to admit that I bought it more for the novelty thinking that I would only wear it occasionally and for more car related outings. I am surprised myself how stylishly versatile the watch is.

As I was seated on a plane, as others are loading a guy stops in the aisle and says, "great looking Porsche watch!"

Guess all those models you hang out with don't care much for men's accessories

Just for the record..... I paid for my watch, extra band...and the springs 928 Intl. offered on special. I write this only because I asked Andrew Olson about riding up to SITM with their group....I don't want to be confused with that non-payer...........my "stones" are still intact.

I seriously get comments nearly every day. Whether at work or not.

I think it catches people's attention because it looks so different, they can't help but ask or comment on it.

Maybe everyone is busy looking at the models you are hanging out with.
They are distracted and can't focus on the wrist

A 42mm comparison shot

Both are 42mm, but the 928 Ltd Edition's dial is so much larger it makes the watch wear and look so much larger. More like a 44-45mm watch

This was Andy's idea.

Blacking out the silver rivets on the Laco Factory strap.
He's a pretty smart fellow
