That is most definitely my current plan. Single Newcomer isn't going anywhere for a while.

And now, some duometre spherotourbillon pr0n! Going to be honest, initially I thought to myself: "beautiful watch, but don't know if I would be the type to wear it." After having looked at more live pics, I really have to admit that I would wear the hell out of this watch. I love the white textured dial. And the watch is just beautifully balanced.

In baseball terminology: give her lots of singles and doubles, then you can get your home run when you turn 65 (she will even be happy to do it methinks).

Such is life.

The speedy pro cost me a cartier and a sapphire set. What can I do shes pregnant smile.gif

my wife is super low maintenance with clothing and jewelry, so its hard to set myself up with a big purchase that way.

best of luck with the pregnancy btw.

Just kidding.
But really, that is just an unbelievable watch. That is close to the end of my "to buy before I die" list.

what's nice about it?

If I could distract you gentlemen from your grail dreams and fine timepeices.

 

I'm you're prototypical broke college kid looking to buy his first watch. I don't have nearly enough money as I would like to spend on this, so I'm looking to buy http://wornandwound.com/2012/04/13/graf-zeppelin-hindenburg-lz129-ref-7060/.

 

Thoughts on such a watch?

 

This would probably satiate me until I save up for my grail watch (JLC Master Ultra Thin/Master Ultra Thin Moon (Can't decide)).

Hold off - you are just buying a bridging measure that will never quite satisfy and you are using up $550 that could go towards a MUT Moonphase - about 8% of the amount needed, which is not insubstantial.

Keep saving, don't go down the instant/transient gratification route and get yourself a watch you don't really want and will eventually outgrow.
