It is a dated design, but not necessarily out-of-date. I like the 70s cases a lot, having three Autavias and the Mark II in my collection. The thing about the (original) Mark II, is that it never quite caught on. Not in 1969 and not as a collectors item later. It has always been about the moon watch. So very nice Mk IIs are available for cheap, at least considering what a nice chrono it is, in a fun and funky package.Here is an old pic of mine, I dug it out tonight and...
Speaking of Speedmasters: http://www.watch-insider.com/news/baselworld-2014-sneak-preview-omega-speedmaster-mark-ii/# Pretty cool I like my old Mk II, happy to see it reintroduced.
Thanks for your thoughts on the 5980s, guys!Thanks mimo, I get the sentiment. And I agree. Somewhat But I feel that this also assumes that my collection is carefully curated, consisting only of deliberately chosen grails being kept forever. I wish it were so Some of my timepieces are the result of deliberate research and warm fuzzy feelings. Others are there by coincidence, bartering, impulse or opportunities suddenly presented. Sometimes the warm fuzzy feelings go away....
My thoughts exactly! Which is why I chose the MUT Moon
Today I spent my lunchtime in the street outside my office, in a parked 911 4S looking at two Patek 5980s, an Explorer II 1655 and a Daytona 6239. I love that my local second hand dealer has a take-away service (Actually, he is not the only one I know who does it, I sometimes sit in a japanese SUV doing the same thing ... ) I wore my Nautilus 5712 to compare to the 5980s. Sorry, no pictures were taken. I have to say, the white 5980 is hot! I have tried it on at ADs...
Happy New Year, gents! I strapped on the JLC MUT Moon for the celebrations, and have not taken it off yet. My only purchase of 2013, but the perfect choice! I planned a few days at least of austere and clean living to start off 2014, but yesterday we got a babysitter and went out anyway The vitello tonnato was pefect, and the huge, huge ox-cheek even more so. And bubbly was just as good as in 2013 Today was a trip to the gym, baked salmon salad and carrot juice As to...
Merry Christmas, people! Picture taken just before leaving for church. I am a sentimental soul, and for Christmas Evening nothing but my late father's Certina will do. No Patek, no Jaeger, no Rolex. Certina it is.
Is it possible to identify this camo jacket? Tommy Ton, Paris photo ... French (or other) military field jacket, or something fancier?
Nice GPs! Rose gold JLC for me today. Attending an event at my local AD after work, looking forward to geeking out over watches and have a glass (or two) of champagne
MG85, the Daytona is a fantastic watch. I'm sure you will be very happy with it! It was my grail for many years, probably fueled by the hype surrounding the watch some years ago. I worked for a (not Rolex) AD when I attended unversity, and spent a lot of time around watches. Like you I wore a TAG at the time, even that expensive for a student I thought. All the time the Daytona was on my mind. After graduating, working for a couple of years, I bought my first Rolex. Not...
