So true. As much as I love the G-Wagon, it's an absolute pain to actually drive.

That is straight FIRE. Love the hands, and the legibility at a glance, despite all the numerals on the dial.

Sexy large crown, too.

What's the case diameter, if I may ask? And which movement?

Thanks, gents!

It's 37mm and has the 13zn movement

There's a similar, if not identical Longines for sale here:

http://www.crownandcaliber.com/buy/longines/vintage-longines/13zn-2/

Cchen, can you comment on the pricing? Did you pay about just as much for that watch?

L-O-V-E that Longines!

That example has a different dial. Mine has the inner snail scale and this does not. I need to see the dial under a loupe to look at some more details, but it seems to be the same exact watch here:

The monopusher is one of the rarer examples of the Longines chrono with 13zn movement. I can't comment on the price other than it seems expensive. Hard to say as the actual "value" in these vintage watches is really in the eyes of the buyer.

Coincidentally, I inquired about consigning mine with Crown and Caliber as well and they said mine could probably sell in the same range as that example, but I highly doubt their estimate....

Wow. They apparently need to get cchen to handle their photography.

Doing that timepiece no favors whatsoever.

More pics featuring the strap than the watch itself, really. puzzled.gif

I did suspect it was Ben Clymer's watch from that article, as BC himself posted an ad to sell it on Chronocentric about 2 months ago, but the ad was deleted. Initial asking price was $20K. I agree that the photography doesn't seem to feature the dial much (or at all). Also seems a little dubious, if it indeed was the same watch, that it was not disclosed that the spring bars were soldered.

I was being polite. I don't like the ride quality at all. 😀

what sets this "limited edition" apart?

I had intended to wear the Aqua Terra today, but I can't seem to get this off my wrist (forgive the crappy cell phone shot). Lunching at my club today:

I stumbled upon a rather interesting table clock the other day, made by those crazy people at Max Busser & Friends (MB&F). As with everything made by MB&F, it's a little, well, different from your usual table clocks:

It's a limited edition and retails for around $35 000.

 

One arm looks like a rocket launcher and the other looks like a Gatling gun. Interestingly, the Gatling gun arm can be detached and used as the key to wind the clock, which is a nice touch.

Every time I look at that Longines it grows on me a little more. It's a fantastic example of what comes to mind when I think about an ideal sort of "vintage watch."

Funny how that 114060 works, 'no?
