I just couldn't get myself to spend >USD25K for a PAM; subjective, I know...

Live pics of the 572 from the Singapore boutique (not my photos).



And that caseback:

I just read the last little bit, and thought that I'd add my $0.02

 

A lot of unncessary social divisions come from improper attribution of moral significance to consumer preferences.  I think that the first thing to recognize is that pretty much all non-essential spending is morally equivalent.  There is nothing better or worse in spending $20K on a watch vs. spending $20K on a home workshop.  Let's check any parsimonious judgements of others at the door and move on.

Amen to that.

since Moser was mentioned a few times, would be appropriate to post a pic.

Thank you! The strap is from Kaktus using vintage military bags so patina was well and truly on the strap. The plexi is holding up very well and I haven't scratch it so far. The watch also came with a spare plexi from Panerai just in case....

I agree with the comments on the beauty of the FP Journe Chronometre Bleu's dial. You really have to see it in person to appreciate how it plays with light. I think the movement architecture is also a step above, exhibiting a seemingly free floating balance. It is also made from solid 18k gold. One of the potential downsides is that the screws on the caseback are proprietary, so you will have to go back to FP Journe for servicing.

I'm a big fan of Moser watches, but have always hesitated on acquiring one due to the past financial instability of the company. I remember reading somewhere that it had to be rescued in the past, not sure what its present situation is. In addition, very few brick and mortar dealers in the U.S. carry them, so it is somewhat difficult to try them on in person.

A couple of highlights from the De Bethune event the other night.

Well thank God for that. I was getting worried about my live-kitten sushi dinners.

Yum.  Sounds a bit like the three squeals fetal pig appetizers.

This is interesting.  Skeleton style lugs, two metal tones, and something weird going on at 3 and 9 but the dial and placement of the crown draw me in.  As with other DB watches, this on probably cost a pretty penny and I would look elsewhere in that range.  I could give this watch some thought in SS and <$5,000 but this is no where near that price.
