I've spent the last week searching for the perfect blue dial watch to match the beautiful blue dials on the R. I think it's the best blue out there. I actually wanted an automatic watch, but this dial only came in quartz. I can live with that. I did look at the Omega Bond watch in person and wasn't too impressed (with the shade of blue). This blue on the Tag is very bright and is a pretty good match to the R dials.<p>Here's a few pics I snapped today.<p><IMG SRC="http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b6d822b3127cce8a7426cf193400000016109AZtWrRy3b0" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b6d822b3127cce8a74260319f800000016109AZtWrRy3b0" BORDER="0"><p><br>Here's a few taken at night.

Nice watch! It looks much better in your pictures than on the Amazon page:<p> <IMG SRC="http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000F1X87Q.01-A3NEEKFH28LV5D._SS500_SCLZZZZZZZ_V57364590_.jpg" BORDER="0">

Are you going to sell the watch with the R???<p>Now you need to have QuickBrick outline the bezel in blue/black carbon fiber and paint the luminecent hands red!!!<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"><p>- Tryg

Very simple design...

If you can find an ESQ Defiant, it is a pretty good match with the gauges. Silver and blue, and it will not set you back a few car payments. Had it for about 2 years now and haven't seen anything closer to the dials yet. I couldn't figure out how to post a pic, so you will have to google it to get a general idea. Here is the best net pic that I could find.<p><A HREF="http://www.ewatches.com/media/Watches/ESQ/images/7300734.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ewatches.com/media/...4.jpg</A>

I went a little crazy with my Tag today after washing my car.<p><IMG SRC="http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b6d825b3127cce8a722f6bd3a900000016109AZtWrRy3b0" BORDER="0"><p>New sponsorship????

My Rolex Datejust is 15 years old, keeps great time, and has never needed any maintenance at all. I only have 1 notable quartz, and that is my Rado. I bought it for it's unique materials and durability.<p>BTW, a new battery for your quartz every year or two is more maintenance than any of my autos require. Has nothing to do with jewelry/status for me. I enjoy watching all things mechanical, kind of like my R <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> .

I want to get some more aluminum trim look on the driver's side like you did. Sure, QuickBrick, send me some of your trim pieces....since that's your business now I know why you're so good at it.

Never needs a battery (solar powered), never needs the time adjusted (daily NIST atomic clock synchronization). Always 100% working and accurate. Can't beat that for an everyday watch. Not that the automatics can't be wonderful hunks of intricately choreographed parts, but a little person inside me wonders if they are going the way of the steam engine...
