I guess some of the Radiomir models are not as bad as the others, but not a fan of the brand at all. Each to his ownpost #30184 of 483123/22/14 at 7:12pmQuote:Originally Posted by jbarwick
The Seamaster was the watch I was looking at before TWAT swayed me a bit to Rolex. The more and more I see a SM the less I am impressed by it. Maybe the bright orange bits of the PO could intrigue me at some point but to be honest there are other pieces I would rather have.
The recent watch video on Hodinkee with the Man of the World guy really sparked my interest to look for something simple and vintage to fill the dress watch hole in my collection. I think throwing a limit of $1,000 out there and seeing where it goes could be interesting. I did just spent that last night on a blue box wedding day gift for my wife she has no idea about.
Congratulations Mrs jbarwick!
That Maleh video was cool. I like how beaten up his Aquanaut was.post #30185 of 483123/22/14 at 7:50pmpost #30186 of 483123/22/14 at 8:23pmQuote:Quote:Quote:

Last night I had an unexpected dinner invitation, and found myself sitting with a watch dealer from Switzerland. He buys direct from factories and sells wholesale in the parallel market: as he put it, his stock is "not what you want, and in large numbers!". It's an interesting business.
Anyway, if anyone wants to buy several discounted watches, or one if it's really expensive, I'm thinking of a new sideline! Of course, it would be impolitic to name any of the companies in question, and I've no idea what models he has right now. But if I think hard enough there must be a way to make money and/or watches out of this. :)post #30188 of 483123/23/14 at 12:16ampost #30189 of 483123/23/14 at 12:17amQuote:Originally Posted by CMT1
My 112 predates Panerai's push for in-house movements by quite a few years. It has a slightly modified/decorated UNITAS 6479 ebauche that looks sharp through a display back, and that has proven very reliable over the years, but it's hardly haute horlogerie. When I purchased the watch, Panerai's finest movements were either the El Primero used in a few chronographs or the JLC Caliber 875 used in the 190, which is hands-down my favorite PAM by far.
There were a few years where I wouldn't touch the 112. I felt like I OD'd on OP. I started seeing Luminors everywhere, especially in any given metropolitan area, and while the same could easily be said for Rolex I still retreated back to the coronet for a long time. I only recently started wearing the Panerai again, and I'm enjoying it.
With that said it's going to be a blue Saturday for me:
I hope the weekend is treating you gentlemen well.

Optical illusion? I don't have very big wrists (6.75") and the ROs wear large. I think 39-40mm is near the upper limit of what I can wear. The only watch I have which is larger is a Omega Planet Ocean (42mm) which sits okay on my wrist...I'm considering replacing it with a slightly smaller diameter diver in the future.post #30195 of 483123/23/14 at 4:11am
