I've been the same with my Sub since I got it.

Anyone ever purchased stuff from Bob's Watches (http://www.bobswatches.com/) ? What was the overall experience like?

 

The Black Briar Index gave it a grade AA, I am rather tempted to give the Rolex submariner a go.

Talk on the street is its a fair and decent seller who sells for straight maket value. Never dealt with him myself. I always look for opinions on WUS


And also. Holy Naughty Nautilus!

Any ideas?


Can you open the caseback?

Their new Cellini models don't get a lot of love on TWAT, but I'm a big fan!

2 entirely different kind of watches and intended purposes. If it was me, I'd choose the SARB, because I already own 2 divers, and I'm lusting after the entire SARB line up.

I can't, but only because the watch is not in my possession. I thought about that, but it wasn't practical, as I was visiting the owner, and while I offered to help her value the watch, I couldn't take it to a watchmaker.

I've always heard the same. Pretty sure he's very legit.

That is a very cool looking watch that I know absolutely nothing about. So what's the deal with Celadon?

Thanks very much! Celadon is simply a passion project of mine - a quest to build something which I couldn't find before, an exceedingly well-made, elegant, dressy but versatile watch, but with a certain distinctive charisma (something usually missing with mainstream dress watches).

Quite a few friends here have the Red dial, and many also have the Blanc de Chine (ivory) watch, or both biggrin.gif

And many have ordered the upcoming Midnight Blue with Plum Blossom Guilloche, or the Blanc de Chine with Peacock Guilloche (absolutely stunning this one icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif)

Here's Alex Ghotbi (moderator of the Vacheron Constantin owner's club The Hour Club, and one of the founding members of The Purists) wearing a Celadon Imperial at a gala dinner in Geneva...
