The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, JLC etc...) - Page 1548

Thank you Newcomer, Roger and Dino for your comments, suggestions and knowledge.
I actually like a lot of the watches you suggested, and unlike shoes i cannot really buy 2 or 3 at a time, so it's a tough choice. But that's a luxury problem. I'll take my time and go and see those you have listed in person.

I wish there was a vintage or even simply second hand watch shop around where I live. After a good service I am sure I would feel very comfortable buying used or vintage.

Until I make my purchase I will continue getting my watch daily fix from your pictures on this thread

^^^ That's a good plan - see as many as you can and get something you truly love - you'll know it when you see it on your wrist. There are no dogs among the various suggestions. Here is a vintage pic for you that I trot out at the slightest provocation whenever dress watches are discussed: http://www.fototime.com/F155BD999D6197A/orig.jpg

That is a nice one, which model is it?
I have seen pictures of vintage seamasters that I really liked. I have tried on a new seamaster aqua terra, and even though it was nice it did not have the same charm

I'm never really on SF, but this is a great thread. Here's what's been getting the heaviest wear on my wrist lately



JLC Reserve de Marche
Blancpain Villeret Ultrathin No-date 40
JLC Deepsea Chrono
1979 Rolex GMT

Thanks. Don't know the model - back in the day Omega didn't designate every watch a Seamaster or DeVille or what have you. It is powered by the 30T2 hand windmovement, though. eric - very nice - love the BP.

Wow, that is a superb four-some. Excellent job. I love all four of those. Three of those are on my "to-buy" list (if I win the lottery smile.gif). I love the RdM, such an attractive watch!

Nice variety and that 79 GMT is very handsome!

FOUR sexy watches... and a sexy avatar.

+1. Baller!

Decided to put my money where my mouth was in the advice to Bawlin this morning. Got the Sea-Dweller out of the box. Goes pretty great with reds and Steel Rail Extra Pale. It is as hot as balls in Boston right now!

Gorgeous! I love the lack of cyclops on the DSSD.

And on that note, I think I've decided on the 114060 Submariner (no date). Again, I love the lack of cyclops and how clean the dial is without the date wheel. The reduction in price is also certainly nice. And I figure once I get bored of it, I can always swap the dial for another colour.

Rolex never offered a different color dial for the No-Date Subs.  They offered other color dials for the two tone (steel & gold) Sub and for the all gold Sub, but those models had a date...so you would have a big empty hole in the dial if you used one of those.  Or are you speaking of an aftermarket dial of some sort?

It's probably old hat to many, but I haven't seen it in this thread yet so some of you may enjoy watching (or re-watching) it:

In under thirty minutes, it manages to do a pretty thorough job of explaining the whole watch thing. Very candid observations from experienced collectors and dealers, too.

The Submariner is great, with or without the date feature. The price difference is negligible in the big picture, but if you prefer the no-date then there's no reason not to go for it. It's an uncompromised watch.

I'm not sure whether a dial swap is the best idea, though. And as mentioned, there's only one factory dial version for that model, anyway.
