That 1815 rocks.

And I agree that the GO PanoMatic Lunar looks better.

With my admittedly more plebeian and utilitarian tastes I admit that I have not seen a Rolex or Panerai I have liked. However that IWC Big Pilot is

where would you be able to purchase some really nice older watches? would any pawn shops carry high end watches from around 1930-40-50's? ebay etc?

I really should make the effort to shoot my watches.

I have a Breitling (my graduation present) and a Panerai (got last week) and I have a Red Defender 90 and my parents both driver Range Rovers (defender is not my daily driver) so I must be a tool ...btw my pics are coming...I have a lot of "lower-end" vintage watches like Hamiltons and Seikos that either my father gave me or I recently bought from ideas I've gotten from this forum. I mostly lurk. I always have a rather odd "watch case" I found in an antique shop outside of Marin last time I was home I'll post. I have to wait for my sis to visit this week as I sadly for some reason can't find my camera.

I'd also suggest Finer Times. That's where I got my IWC. I used to pick some up on eBay, but I think you need to be more cautious nowadays. I haven't heard of many good deals at pawn shops, but you might check out independent watch repair shops (if there are any near you).

Here's what I was wearing today.

Since the temperature and humidity have finally reached a tolerable level here in Houston, I've been going through my watches with leather bands to see what needs to make a trip to my watch guy. Today's is a 1922 Elgin with a 7-jewel movement. It's still accurate to within about 1-2 minutes a day.

They sell nice stuff but are quite overpriced. Going with a reputable ebay seller is a good way to go. Ebay is more wholesale level prices.

Inspired by Socal, I just picked up this vintage ca. 1959 Longines Mystery Dial. I love the atomic age sensibility, plus it is in great shape, with original unrestored dial, crown, etc:
