You expressed my feelings WRT Renato exactly, Johnny. And I LOVE your avatar! I have to ask: are you a fan of the Mostro? (AKA the Renato 55.)

I picked up the Mostro with the 7750 from the Renato website for about half of what they were selling it for on ShopNBC the other night. I have to say that it might be my favorite watch to date. That's what keeps me coming back to Renato in spite of my feelings about their business practices.
I'm with you there. About two months ago, I came across a Mostro/Renato 55 on feeBay; it was their version of the black ppd, and the dial was an amazing green. Like you, I picked it up for significantly less (about 60%) than offered on Shop. I have to admit that its size rather threw me for a loop, but its thinness more than made up for that. Although I'm no longer a part of the Bigger-is-Better crowd, I still really like the Mostro; it looks great on the wrist and is - surprisingly enough - very comfortable.
Anyhow, congratulations on the 7750 version; that is my favorite movement (and I just can't seem to pull the trigger on anything that contains the vaunted SW500), and the favorite of many, many others, I'm sure. Hope you enjoy it for many years to come, Johnny.
