I have a MXL with steel forks, CK headset, Campag Chorus and 3T bars Fulcrum zero wheels.
I'm going with the Saronni color scheme because that is what I have wanted since I was 14 years old back in 1985. I'm debating the build with Record 10 from my C50 and buying a Super Record 11 groupo for the C50, or going with Athena/Mirage in Silver for the build. I've got a while to go before the build, so I'll get to debate it some more.

Having this watch will make me no bigger dolt than having my carbon De Rosa with Super Record :)
I'm not a big fan of Tag, but that watch looks awesome. All 4 of my siblings have a Tag, and I like to be different. LOL

Only dolts from overseas pay $7000 for a Rolex nowadays.
Since this whole thread has massively derailed into watches and pens, thanks to your remarks, then can I have the honour of being the Master Dolt because I didn't pay just for one? With a few exceptions, Mrs. and I are generally Rolex wearers, and even my teenaged son wears a Tudor.

We have the simple Day Just shown below and Presidents. I have a GMT and a Daytona and she has a Cellini and another Date Just. Like I said, I wear a Swatch while riding my bikes. She wears a old TAG chrono. My older son has a Tudor and an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch, that I will kill him if he breaks it.

Oops.. mine is 40 seconds fast.. should have bought a Seiko!

But now, can we please return the conversation to Italian Colnagos?

That might be one of the few pens I like from them. One of the reasons I like the Mont Blanc pens is for their simplicity. They aren't flamboyant. Kind of like my Colnagos. I don't have any really crazy paint schemes on them. I like my stuff to stand out, but not be too much of an eye catcher.
I'm a Meisterstuck Legrand user on a daily basis. I sign my work in the office with a Unicef and my wife got me a Legrand Diamond last Christmas for home use. Like I said, my office desk has the whole simple Meristerstuck collection, including pen, rollerball, ballpoint, pencil and highlighter. I wear a slim Solitaire Doue silver and black ballpoint in my shirt pocket daily.

I thought about getting the Legrand highlighter. Right now, I use some cheap highlighters that put way too much fluid on the paper when I first start highlighting. That might end up being a Christmas present. I tried the fountain pen and decided it wasn't for me, so whenever I buy Mont Blanc pens I buy them in the rollerball/ballpoint combo. I use the rollerballs in blue ink for signing and the ballpoint in black ink for taking notes.

Now, back to Italian Colnagos. Maybe Colnago should come out with a watch and pen set. LOL

Its different because I'm not a lawyer. I use a fountain pen only to sign documents and write checks. Pretty much only blue ink is used for documents, although I prefer black. Other than that, I like rollerballs, and I use pencil and highlighters for daily work. I use red ink in my ballpoint for editing work... somehow red ink is mandated, otherwise you're an ineffective boss by not being an a$$hole.

It'll be cool if there were a Colnago Breguet or Audemars Piguet watch, and a Colnago Visconti pen, but I guess SalsaLover won't be a customer lol

Hey, how about an Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon Colnago edition with bike racks, eh? I'll buy that.
