Saw this seller on TZ awhile ago. Straps look amazing for the price. If you do try one PM me your thoughts.http://forums.timezone.com/index.php?t=tree&goto=6834575&rid=0#msg_6834575
It'll be a tough choice Stitchy. I know the white ex II is not the most popular model, but that's kind of what I like about it.That was my understanding as well based on what I've seen you guys post before. Based on the Rolex site, they are one of three Retailers in town. However, the lady was helping me not the normal person who worked in the Rolex section of this store. I think in retrospect she was talking out of her ass, but I asked her three times if she was sure....
I would suggest even going slightly used to open up your options a bit. I sold my Hamilton Jazzmaster for $300. Steinhart and Stowa are in that range as well if you like the look of the Marine. I've always thought it was kind of an all purpose watch. If you like something more sporty, then maybe a pilot watch.Here's a Steinhart Marine that was under your price range but has a standard...
Went perusing at lunch and tried on the Rolex GMT. For size it seems the best all around fit. I do not care for the polished center links but they said they could sub in a brushed version (true or BS?). Anyway, still looking at that new white dial explorer as well. It might call to me if I don't find a 16570 in my neighbourhood.
PayPal is about it. No question you still have to check out the seller and to be honest I would avoid overseas purchases unless from a manufacturer. Although I would be willing to use Chrono24. Also, duties are much higher from overseas purchases.
That was the first one I noticed. Certainly the more dressy of the two, although the thickness makes it difficult to pair with anything in business.
Some pics of the THC in Blue. Still growing on me, contemplating trading it for a BB in blue. We'll see.
I would buy off a watch site over ebay any day. Ie. TimeZone, Watchuseek or Rolex forums. Better sellers, prices and less risk.
All that said, they are beautiful watches with in house movements. I particularly like their 60's and 70's models which are a bit more unique. If they are considered a poor man's Lange, I will never be in Lange territory so I would consider them an option.
Agree with H there. Longines and Omega will be your most affordable options and both offer up to 38mm sizes if that's what you are looking for. I don't think there is a significant advantage of Omega or Tudor over Longines except collectibility, so you will pay more. I never really see vintage Cartiers and I don't think they will be in that price range. Other options? - Hamilton - Eterna - Gerard Perregaux
