Does anyone know what are good online places to sell diamonds? I know it's a stretch, but figured I may just try the collective wisdom here. Asking for a buddy who's looking to sell an engagement ring...peepwall[1].gif

Here's a shot from the side that shows just how impossibly thin it is:

Better off insuring then "losing"...

You need some sports watches (kidding).

Please stick around.

post #29197 of 48312

New to the forums, and only about 2,000 posts deep into this thread.  Nevertheless, I find the longines mystery watch to be one of the most unique and classy watches I have come across.  I hopped on ebay to check out prices and came across this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-Longines-Mystery-Dial-Wristwatch-NICE-/121242398057?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item1c3a9c2d69

 

I'm looking to put it in my regular rotation and wear it once a week or so.  Anything I should really worry about here?  What is a fair price for this watch?  Thanks!

Something like that--Louisiana is purely civil law, and has not adopted the UCC... so that is something that is fairly new to me. Stupid Louisiana.

Beautiful shot! And beautiful Panerai.

And I kind of agree, but they have a few designs that really appeal to me. In that price range, I would struggle not to pick something up from the big four first.

Kaplan, you too, I love that one. The gold hands are something else.

I get what you are saying. The logo, font, and Piaget is definitely more stylized, and it is pretty darn cool. They kind of remind me of Cartier in that way. And I definitely respect the fact that Piaget as a brand has really embraced a style. Their watches are distinctly Piaget, and not that many brands come claim such a strong identity.

I am going to have a chance to see some Piagets at an AD soon, so I will report back with what I see! I have always enjoyed the Altiplanos, although some of them may have a diameter a little too large for the style.

re: PiageT - clearly they are in a higher class of timepieces, and although I can appreciate their quality and beauty, they've never quite interested me. I too am not a fan of their choice of logo font, but maybe I'm missing the relevance or history behind their choice in lettering. True, it's a bit different, and I'm sure fans will love it, but it's not my cup of tea. I've handled some in person, and really can't find anything wrong with the watch per se, just no chemistry for me.

I really do not know that much about the history of the brand either. Or what their existence looked like in the Quartz revolution.

But at the end of the day, if you don't feel the chemistry, you just don't feel the chemistry. I feel that way about many of GP's designs (except I love that cushion case chrono) and even the new Jules Audmemars designs.

Please do! I greatly enjoyed your first few posts.

The one with the side profile of that AP is breathtaking.

Tukker, you need to page Stitchy.  He buys these things for a living.  And can possibly exchange for a watch. :)

You know you're a watch geek when you think that only a Speedmaster would be appropriate for that photo shoot.

I know I'm a watch geek (& not at all fond of the subject matter) when I click the spoiler and am disappointed not to see a watch in the picture. nod[1].gif


srsly enough already with the Kate Upton crap... she's really not all that at all.

Apologies, you're totally right of course.

A fleiger could also be appropriate.
post #29204 of 48312
Saw a couple of references to the "big 3" and decide to google. Am I right that you guys are referring to AP, Patek and VC? I'm wondering why JLC is considered a step below those three...presumably ALS isn't there because they're not Swiss?

Btw I know this is kind of a stirpot.gif post so apologies in advance laugh.gif
post #29205 of 48312

I've heard those three described also as the traditional big three, with the addition of Lange and Breguet as a semi-official modern "big five".  JLC certainly have top end pieces up there with the best of them, so I get your point, but then they also make a lot of stainless steel watches with Rolex prices.  So do Breguet, I suppose, but I think it's still clear that with the same owners, JLC are positioned carefully to be more "accessible" than Lange.  Relatively speaking, of course.
