@Newcomer - Im liking that FPJ more and more every time you post about it. I was wondering about the case - how it almost looked gunmetal. Interesting they used tantalum. I actually like it a lot. Hodinkee did a nice review of it, as well as the VC @CHRK33mentioned above (although I too would pine for the 1921) http://www.hodinkee.com/features/three-on-three-manual-dress-watch
Nooooooo. Not the fade. I actually don't mind the blue dial with green writing. But the fade is too much. That being said I'm going with @no frills and wait to see it in person.
@zippy - what a coincidence, I was just thinking about this watch this morning and thinking if I should try and source one! Great looking watch. Probably brings a tear to the eyes of the IWC purists (if there are any left..) Can you post some more pics of it when you get a chance? @Betelgeuse - nice sticks!
Congrats, A - any hints?
NS for the win with that awesome pic
My 2 cents. If I had 25k and looking to cover the casual base I'd get the JLC Master control chrono and the new Rolex Sea Dweller pocket the rest for your next watch. Done
Stitch-meister - I too keep all my old boxes and agree it definitely helps with reselling having all the original books, papers, boxes etc. I guess my point is if I wanted to buy a watch, in this case the Speedmaster, and I could have the exact same watch with OEM boxes, I'd rather buy the Speedy that came with the cheaper box and without the additional accessories, more expensive packaging.
I agree to a point. It's nice Omega at least gives you the upgraded bracelet. More than I can say for the price hikes of certain Richemont brands often with no discernible improvements at all..
The bracelet upgrade is great, but all that other stuff (seriously - NICER box?) doesn't interest me at all. I hope this doesn't 'outprice' a lot of would be Speedy fans.
Another +1 for the black dial/brown strap combo. It was the very unique black/medium brown combo that Panerai is known for that got me really into the whole watch thing way back when. I was intrigued by the Luminor case and well, fell down that rabbit hole head first. I guess I've sort of held a soft spot for the look ever since. As for GO. I always kick myself for not getting this when I had the chance..
