I have always had a soft spot for the panda dial TOC, and, now that it appears that the TOC will soon be extinct, I decided to pull the trigger before it's too late. I love the fact that the subdials are anthracite, as opposed to jet black -- it's a nice, subtle touch.

And, while I'm at it, here's the rest of the family... :wink:

All of those watches are beautifully done and congrats on adding the panda. Always loved the look of the entire line but they dont fit my wrist unfortunately. That is a lovely group you have there!

All great pieces! The Panda has been on my brain ever since Driver turned me on to it. Wear it in good health!

Wow! What can one say! OK, going through the line up, I thought #2 would be an excellent addition for as a dress watch. Then I looked at #3 and I thought the same. On to #3 and I thought the same. You see, this can be addictive, but I like it! These are great watches! They all look lovely and they all look rich! I think Mr. Kern is on the right avenue.

Excellent addition! I have always had a soft spot for the TransOcean line!

All of these are just beautiful but if I should choose just one it would be #2.

Great collection Jim :lingsrock:

Fantastic addition. I’ve always wants a TO38 as a unisex watch my wife and I can share.

Thanks again for the nice comments, guys.

In another thread, Fred mentioned that ADs are viewing the new Premier line quite favorably compared to higher end brands. To be honest, that’s how I’ve always felt about the TOC. Sporty, yet elegant, all in one package. One of the truly fine offerings of the Schneider era.

Well, I'll dust off this thread to show the latest addition to my TOC family. I guess, in some ways, the title of this thread is still apt!

I have always loved the reverse panda version of the TOC (and, yes, there are two of those -- the original limited edition, and the more recent edition with red accents). With time slipping by, and the extinction of the TOC species an inevitable reality, I decided to plunge in one last time.
So, here is yesterday's arrival...

Image


And, while I'm at it, I decided that one of the current Premier straps might look good with the panda TOC. It gives this watch a different vibe, which I like a lot...

Hope everyone's doing well! :)

Looks great!! I always was a huge fan of the TOC. I don't get how it wasn't more popular. And the premier strap goes with the watch perfectly!

Owned 3 TOC in the past and they were some of my favorite watches. The watch was just too big for my small wrists so sadly parted with them all. If the lug to lug was shorter they would have all been keepers.

I love every model of TOC that you have there.
Congrats! I really need to get one myself....
