Very nice selection of pics cchen.

5711 today, a cool Saturday morning in NYC. I love this watch. And it sports a good deal of battle scars from a good amount of wear.

Of course I've been selling between 1500-4000 bucks, so it may be easier than at higher price points for a seller with little or no reputation.

Couldn't resist bringing the OQ too.
And they have LJ on board!
Skål, y'all.


Counted down the new year with it outdoors in a park filled with Oslo folks. This thing is dirty-accurate. smile.gif

Love the 5146 - I think it's the best of PP's "reasonably" priced pieces.

Might be easier to view if you used the "Upload image" function...

Does anybody here routinely switch out the strap on their watches? As previously mentioned I recently got an IWC Portuguese Chronograph and love it for pretty much all the scenarios I need a watch for except the most formal. For weekend casual wear though I would prefer to put it on a lighter honey color strap. How easy are straps to switch out and does anybody do this?

It is very simple with a basic strap changing tool.

How much does the Grandes Seiko costs? Kinda falling for it.
