I've never cared for the Offshores, and by upsizing the mainline RO and RO chrono it seems that they're jumping on a bandwagon that pulled out of the station several years ago...

Assuming that's the now-discountinued 39mm 15300, you can get that around 9.5k from traders NIB. For remaining ADs who have it in stock probably closer to 12k.

GORGEOUS watch. Ive always liked GP but never pulled the trigger. A god friend had one and had to sell it at quite a loss. he always complained about little things going wrong with it and having to send it off all the time. Kinda made me a little trigger shy on em.

I have a sudden love affair with the IWC Ingenieur 3227-01. Just a stunning watch, IMO. inlove.gif

That's a beaut. I was actually at IWC a few days ago to try on this bad boy, the 3878 pilot. I love the clean layout and dial color, but at 43mm it seemed like a clock when strapped on.

I still prefer the VC Overseas to the AP.

Hmm, that watch, at 43mm seems to wear pretty big.

P.S. - I just ordered a pair the PA's smile.gif


This watch was discontinued (I believe in 2007) so pre-owned is the only way to get it. That's how I got mine.

yeah, the lugs seem to outstretch past your wrist on both sides. too bad, its a great looking watch. maybe try so forearm work out, lol. smile.gif
post #12959 of 48312

Does anyone know where I could get this watch at or less than this price from a reputable dealer? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hamilton-American-Classic-JazzMaster-Chrono-H32656853-42mm-100M-NEW-/251095652695?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3a76779957

 

Thanks :)

medtech, Agree with most here, it's just too big for your wrist.  Good news is there are many watches that are 38mm which would fit you perfectly.
