I thought I wanted the IWC BP. And then I realized I don't want a wall clock/scale sitting on my wrist, slamming into people the next street over.
I only have a thousand gauss

Mil can be misleading.

My favorite all-time watch is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chrono in Panda dial. The details are incredible when seen in person. Pictures do not it justice. A lot of people like the ROO (Royal Oak Offshore), but something about the pushers on it feel cheap. I was so close to buying the ROC, but ended up getting the second best thing - the black face steel Daytona. AP ROC will be my next purchase, after the M4.

Here is the ROC Panda

Never go wrong with a hulk!

If you are in to the panda dial on an AP, you could consider the AP 26400SO. I know it's a ROO instead of ROC but I agree with you that the pushers on the ROC does feel a little cheap (no offensive!).

Did you sent yours to a customizer to have it blackened? If so, which one? How'd it work out? How long did it take?

All the best.

Nope. It looks the same as above. (With some surface scratches of course).

Just picked this up, might be my new favorite. The way the sapphire bezel reflects light is really unique, glows like a torch too. Plus its only running +2 seconds after 2 days!
