These watch manufacturers are such pricks.
"Let's add a new color to the bezel, make it a LE and let these obsessed fanboys pay 50% more"
I don’t want the watch for myself & afraid I’ll have difficulty selling in secondary... otherwise it would already be in my hotel safe
I am not... Cheerio!
Opinions on chrono24? Trust it or worry about fakes?
Depends on the watch. Most aren’t worth faking.
I've had two good experiences. I would be more wary of private sellers.
Omega aqua terra
Anyone have experience with Ball brand? Stumbled across something I’m in love with.
Very unique designs which is admirable in this day and age. Believe they primarily use ETA base movements which you can't go wrong with. If you love it I would go for it.
You could give it to me as a thank you gift for you staying on my couch later this year.
??? Are you moving here?
No I mean for when cinci comes here in the fall as a joke. I decided online NP is the way to go.
Lol I can't believe this shit.
My girlfriend, who has been my biggest critic when it comes to my watch obsession, just had a watch delivered to me as a Valentine's gift. She just left on a 3 month volunteer trip.
Unreal. I'll post pics later.
Ok, so yes this was a gift. Yes, it was a very, very nice gift, but there is a backstory that I won't get into that makes sense why I would get a gift of this magnitude. Part of the backstory is that she Indian gived (gave?) the Tag Heuer Carrera that belonged to her father, which I didn't care about at all, so I had no chronograph. We were in Miami a few weeks ago and she forces me to have lunch with a friend of hers who is a jeweler down there under the guise of her wanting me to talk to him about what she should get as her first watch. Him and I got into discussing mens watches and I thought absolutely nothing of it. I mentioned how my next purchase would likely be a chronograph and that a Ceramic Daytona is one of my grails, but I was realistically looking into a Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional or an El Primero in the next couple years. She left for 3 months yesterday and sends me a FedEx tracking number that was due to arrive this morning. I opened up the package and I saw a Zenith box and I practically shit my pants. I do believe it is my favorite watch.
Can I borrow your gf? My wife just rolls her eyes at me
Pics of girlfriend?
Missed opportunity for pic of the Ohio couple
Damn nice. Congrats - on both watch and GF
Make an honest woman out of her, Fudd.
I appreciate the kind sentiments, gentlemen but there is more to the backstory than I mentioned above.
This was like a lifelong lottery player that has lost a net of $100k winning $10k on a scratch off. Don't give her too much credit.
I feel like receiving a $5k Valentine's gift in the dating phase has bad omens for anything beyond.
But nice watch and eat Arby's
Just tried this on in a watch store and didn’t even look at IWC’s before the sales guy pointed it out. Beautiful watch. I’m down to this and a Black Bay.
I hate all of you in this thread because I want new watches (plural).
But Imm exceedingly grateful to have a pencil wrist so my options are limited. Keeps me down under 10 watches I can wear and look good in that I want.
i have a small wrist too and the IWC 40mm looked perfect. I was pretty surprised.
Lovely watch. I don't like the factory steel bracelet, but it would look great on leather of many colors.
40mm diameter, 11mm thick, 50mm lug to lug. Very good versatile dimensions. Could be worn as a dress piece as well as casual wear.
I've learned that lug to lug height is really the most crucial measurement when deciding if a watch will be wearable on your wrist. 50mm is my limit. I now have 2 watches with 50mm lug to lug and they both wear well, but that is the limit.
This is gorgeous
I’m thinking 40 mm is my largest option.
Going to a few boutiques in a couple weeks while my wife is out of town to try some on.
Saban wears an IWC.
Sounds like he has great taste
I’d like to pick up a white-face dress watch and have been looking at some used models (sub $1,000.) Thoughts or any of these you’d avoid?
Spoiler: Seiko Cocktail Time
Spoiler: Seiko Blue Spark
Spoiler: Seiko KS
Spoiler: “Omega Seamaster”
Spoiler: “Longines Heritage 1945 think he’s priced a bit high”
I like that seiko ks and the cocktail.
I am such a Seiko fan, so I’ve been drawn to those listing as well but I keep coming back to the KS.
I just have no idea what the value of that watch is and whether or not $315 is a good price. Doesn’t seem like it includes the original strap, which is okay given what I’d use it for. Just need to pick up a dressier band from crown and buckle for it.
Big fan of the Longines
I like that one too, but I'm worried it'll be worth the purchase price of one of the Seikos in another year or two.
Unless you plan on unloading it, don’t worry about that. Buy watches because you like them and enjoy having them in your collection.
One of the biggest things I see are people eho don’t love the watches they buy, and then never use them. You don’t need a piece for every situation, so get a few pieces and enjoy them often.
Unless you have boatloads of cash to spend and amass a 50+ piece collection.
Wish the new two tone Chanel J12 was a men’s watch. It’s different and I’d wear it
Absolutely. Most quality watches hold their value but just like most things in life spend money on what you enjoy.
I would take a look at this
I have the blue dial version and wear it as often as my Rolex/Tudor/JLC. The dial is incredible for the price point.
Even the staunchest of the Seiko fanboys are getting upset with the brand.
I watched a video on the new Alpinists and people were killing them in the comments. I'm sorry, but you can't charge $750 for a watch that doesn't even fucking hack.
Is the dial mother of pearl?
No it is textured.
So, doing a deeper dive on this guy, it’s pretty cool. It was a limited release and the guy is selling it with the complete kit of box papers etc. I’d still need to drop another $40+ on a band.
The KS definitely has history being >50y old, but it’s nowhere near the condition of the Fuyuwhatever listing.
Seiko does do great dials, primarily on Grand Seiko obviously but even on a lot of the Presage line.
