Bollocks. Suddenly I'm 15 pages behind again and have spent all my money on wine and shoes. I hate that.

Sounds like quite a night:lol:

 

It has rather dawned on me that on the third day of the month, I am currently waiting for several ties and pocket squares, enough cloth for several suits, one jacket already under construction and another OTR en route, just one more pair of shoes and...er...two watches.  This is going to be a long four weeks...good job I gave up drinking anyway....I think....

....the rest of it, I just blew!! (paraphrasing George Best, I believe.)


LOL'd while checking out the Cartier website for the specs on that Tank... they refer not to a date function, or a day-counter....it is rather called, in their parlance, a "calendar aperture".

C'est magnifique, non?

I'm interesting in buying a pre-owned sub, don't mind either no-date or date versions. This one caught my attention, but wondering if $5700 (less 10% tax) is a good deal for a circa 2002 model.

great watch, but way too much $ imo. i have a great '98 model, with date, listed on eBay for 4995. like new, just serviced by rolex. and you could probably find cheaper too.

Do yourself a favor.

 

Go to the following website and check out their classified section and compare prices.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ari, if you buy from an Australian site, you will always pay more - often considerably more - than buying from overseas.

The upside to buying in Australia is, of course, that if the seller is local, you can try it on and have a look at it to make sure you're getting what you want. The downside is that you'll pay a lot of "Australia tax".

Of course, if you order a watch costing more than $1000 from overseas, you'll most likely have to pay tax on it, particularly if it is sent via a courier service as the courier service will collect the tax/duties on behalf of Customs and they'll kindly charge you a fee for doing so, too!

I bought my Tudor from Nicholas Hacko recently, Ari and can therefore recommend buying from him wholeheartedly.
post #25362 of 48312
Hacko's prices are a little on the high side.

There is a 16610 on his site now for $6,900.

When you think about it - you could actually throw in a return trip to Singapore and get the exact same watch, for cheaper.

That's Australia for you. That's how it goes here for so many things.

Need to catch up on the last two pages. But, trying Tapatalk tonight as per stitchy's recommendation. Gave a talk at a public school this morning in nearby Brooklyn. But was I "Brooklyn-hip" enough? I don't know.

Anyway, mimo, here is one of those hats. Fedora by Borsalino, made of hemp. Lightweight, durable and as breathable as straw. Useful since summer made a return appearance today here in NYC.

Frills-
The 5035 has been calling my name for a while. Giving it some serious thought again. Curious as to your (and anyone else's) thoughts on that one.
