Never used them, but I heard they are a good company to deal with. As for 1.1 vs 1.6...the number I gave you was what I was quoted years ago. It could have changed since then. I really haven't checked to see if they or others have raised the premium. The other thing to consider, is with some companies once the value is more than a certain amount, the premium/percentage could be higher. Do some homework before you decide. However, I wouldn't own really nice watches without insurance to cover them... its too risky. IIRC, Derek had his place broken into years ago and had several Rolex and PAMs stolen.

The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, JLC etc...) - Page 2672post #40066 of 483121/22/15 at 2:13pmpost #40067 of 483121/22/15 at 2:18pmpost #40068 of 483121/22/15 at 2:20pmpost #40069 of 483121/22/15 at 3:11pmI recommend Chubb's Masterpiece coverage. Spendier than most, but worth it. Very comprehensive coverage. I live in NYC, and with no car I couldn't get auto liability insurance since I can't get car insurance without a car. No matter. My coverage includes $5mm of umbrella liability, which is good worldwide...including for car accidents. As for watches....the policy came with $25K (per incident) coverage for watches/jewelry. Not separately scheduled, so no appraisal needed.
Now, will someone offer some additional thoughts on whether I should get the JLC perpetual ultrathin in steel or white gold? With the discount and VAT refund, the WG version is within spitting distance of the RRP on the boutique-only steel version.post #40070 of 483121/22/15 at 3:31pmpost #40071 of 483121/22/15 at 3:37pmpost #40072 of 483121/22/15 at 3:57pmQuote:

My first response was "What on earth am I looking at?" But it is quite an intriguing little work of art, isn't it...post #40074 of 483121/22/15 at 7:51pmI think it's time for me to buy that Seamaster (2254.50) that I want... Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to find a good one that isn't overpriced? And where should I look for one? Forums? Dealers?
Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!post #40075 of 483121/22/15 at 9:15pmpost #40076 of 483121/22/15 at 10:00pmQuote:

I don't have a DJ clasp for comparison, but it has the same internal deployant componentry as my 116520 and 116600. They're identical apart from the finish.
The bead-blasted is a little less grippy against the wrist than the polished; that's about the only difference I can tell. Either works.post #40079 of 483121/23/15 at 5:23am^ I didn't even think there could be a difference in how they wear - less grippy sounds good I guess?
I was purely thinking of aesthetics, as to me the matte looks noticeably worse than the polished (I do greatly prefer the all brushed bracelet though). Somehow, the polished clasp looks like a natural continuation of the stamped clasp I'm used to, while the bead blasted one kinda looks cheap to me - a little like 'silver' painted plastic, IYKWIM. My local AD described it as an attempt by Rolex to differentiate the watches, as if the ones with the polished clasp were 'better'. Don't know if he made that up himself, or if that's the official explanation. Either way, it's obviously a very minor thing, as it'll be hidden when worn :-)post #40080 of 483121/23/15 at 6:29amQuote:
I've been looking into them and I'm very impressed with OuJ. I particularly resonate with their desire to create the simplest movements possible to produce the required data at your wrist.
