Automotive: I hope they can raise their game in terms of quality

I love Lotus but they've never been known for quality or fit-and-finish. I certainly hope they are able to raise their game significantly where a £1.7M car is concerned.

Horological Meandering: Insure it and wear it without worry...

I don't currently own a ceramic watch, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy one and simply insure it against accidental damage/breakage. The only ceramic watches I might hesitate to own are those for which replacement cases are no longer available, like the IWC 3705.

Breguet: Right, I realized the rationale behind the crown

Same thing with the IWC Big Pilot, I just didn't realize the original Type 20 had such a crown. The photos I've seen of Type 20s (or probably XXs) had a more conventional crown.

Breguet: Answered my own question

Apparently this is an exact re-edition of the original Type 20, crown included. Obviously showing my ignorance of the Type 20.

Breguet: Love everything about it except...

The crown. It's just a bit over the top and seems out of place on the watch. I'm not an expert on Breguet Type XXs, is there a precedent somewhere in the history of the Type XX for such a crown?

Omega: I'm not really a NATO wearer...

But I've heard great things about the ToxicNATOs. Apparently the hardware and quality of the strap materials are top notch. I know several people who swear by them.

Officine Panerai: Agreed, about as good as a modern Panerai gets...

I don't mind the display back, although the movement isn't really that much to look at. I've got a 000 so that satisfies my urge for a base PAM with a solid back.
