Just a couple of points to add:   - Patek is the collectors' choice for good reason, but I don't think a collector with a taste for the bottom line (or taste at all), would buy a new one.  The depreciation hit is just as awful as a Vacheron or a Lange on a new one - whatever you think of current designs.   - Competitive advertising to reach those new Asian markets (and a new generation of aspiring #luxeshitoninstagram generation Europeans and Americans), is what's...
That is pretty much identical to one I got my son a couple of years ago. It's almost unbelievable that you can get so much watch for the price. That is a proper watch. Nice kop!
Sized up a half for this and the Marcos. Standard for all the oxfords and boots. I have a wide-ish forefoot; I like Carmina's Rain last best, for reference. All the JF shoe lasts seem like a good standard fit for me. Only the first loafers were too small at the ball, and the monkey boot and button boots I find a bit saggy in the waist. Just bought the green suede loafer in standard size too: it's close across the forefoot but more forgiving; didn't need to size up like I...
A well worn favourite from the House of Fitzpatrick:
 Like many here I would be biased towards a mechanical watch.  Generally I'd be looking at Tissot for a dress watch under a few hundred Euros.  I got one for my son and it really feels like a "proper" watch, from a maker with a strong history.  If you shop around for offers you might get a nice deal on Raymond Weil in that range - though some friends have had reliability problems - or I'd look also for grey market/clearance on Longines, you'll definitely find sub $1000 and...
Not sure about that one personally, though it's certainly got personality. Regarding discounts, the flip side is that deals on the current Senator are going to get even better when the new one arrives.
The Senator auto is very appealing. I feel a tyre-kicking session coming. Pretty much on the $5k too, grey market. I love the Senator Perpetual, though again it's the dark dial that gets me. Was my favourite, until I saw that crazy Seventies...
Absolutely. What sort of thing do you like? Sporty or dressy? New or used?
Lunch yesterday. Reminded me of @no frills. By the way, @pmeis, I went to try on the Sixties and Seventies after all the talk. And yes it's big, and bling as hell with the polished bezel and centre links. But that Senator Seventies on the bracelet just sings with charisma. I love it; now firmly on the wish list.
@pmeis how does the 70s wear? I love the retro feel but it looks like it wears pretty big. How do you tend to wear it?
