Do people like or prefer non-hacking movements? I learned recently that the Patek Aquanaut is non-hacking, and I'm surprised that a new(-ish), modern watch would come out with a non-hacking movement, especially at Patek's price point. I get it if it's a historical movement of importance, but if not, why then?post #33199 of 483126/29/14 at 4:11ampost #33200 of 483126/29/14 at 4:18am
^^ Agree. There are plenty of steel perpetual calendars at or under that price - from the really cheap Hamiltons etc., the re-tread maker Perrelet at just under that price (not bad looking either), and the odd Breitling. I saw a NOS IWC in that ballpark too.
But for a platinum perpetual calendar, although there's plenty used in that range - IWC, Blancpain for example - there's nothing I've seen that's readily available under $20+k new.
If this is a new Celadon project, I'd be a bit more wary though: there might not be a lot of platinum perpetual calendars in this price range. But there are a hell of a lot of people's "grails" right around the $15-20k mark, and whatever the metal, there is a big difference from the first Celadons: new and untried is fair enough at Tudor price, but when it's instead of a Royal Oak or a Lange 1815, I suspect the value proposition will add up rather differently. Even for the steel one - right up against, say, JLCs and Rolexes, I think it's a hard sell. Doesn't mean it can't work, but it does mean be careful how much exposure is needed on the stock.post #33201 of 483126/29/14 at 4:43amQuote:Originally Posted by Dino944

Thanks Dino! Your black index is outstanding as well. I get hypnotized by looking at the dialspost #33202 of 483126/29/14 at 6:06am^^^ Steel28 gotta love the white dial Daytona!
Rolex does a bang up job with the protective plastic stickers. You barely notice they're there. I'm waiting for them to fall off from my DSSD hahah.
114060 and 116520 saying hello!
DSSD domed crystal produces the most fascinating visual effects.post #33203 of 483126/29/14 at 10:04ampost #33204 of 483126/29/14 at 10:27ampost #33205 of 483126/29/14 at 1:02pmQuote:
This. Usually when I do this, I know my day is going to be great.
I wouldn't mind too. Also not spoiler because well who doesn't want to look at this piece again.
Today, Mexico lost in the World Cup and people look like if someone they know died. I'm not a soccer fan or follower so I went to buy nice steaks.post #33206 of 483126/29/14 at 2:13pmpost #33207 of 483126/29/14 at 6:34pmpost #33208 of 483126/29/14 at 7:04pmpost #33209 of 483126/30/14 at 3:51ampost #33210 of 483126/30/14 at 5:16am
