Definitely congratulations! Not a fan of Rolex and most especially not a Submariner. :)

Here is my daily summer watch

 

Ah, I'm only being a dick.  I'm a bit ambivalent about the ExII, but I think the casual strap really makes it.  Great summer look!

@mildundklar you're most welcome here if that's the heat you're packing.

Anyone looking for a BLNR? Offering it up here before I list it on the usual watch sites. PM me!

Had lunch with a watch collector friend yesterday, tried on his 5196g. Unfortunately it fit me very well uhoh.gif And he might be looking to sell.

I have heard a few arguments against this Calatrava (small movement in larger case etc), but on my hand it was pure magic. It does not fill an empty spot in my collection, nor satisfy any other rationalization. It was just very, very nice smile.gif

Don't like the watch or personal reasons? I only ask because it's such a sought after and respected watch.

First vintage watch was this cool Tudor Snowflake. Unfortunately sold.




Whoa can't wait to see more photos of the watch...a one owner vintage is a great find!

I love the vintage snowflake too. That's a piece I'd like to add to my little collection.

It's a really great watch. But I don't really like having too many watches and I'd like to start saving towards the Journe I want and eventually a PP 5712R. So I'm consolidating my watch collection. Already sold off a Pam 312 and putting my vintage Baume and mercier up for auction.

I'm perfectly content with a rotation of ALS 1815 up/down, vintage longines 13zn chrono, and Tudor Pelagos. Add a fpj cb and I'll be content, for a while

Thanks - it's always interesting to hear the rationale. I agree you have a great rotation with or without it, and the prospect of a PP is a no brainer smile.gif

@cchen: what B&M are you selling?
post #44804 of 48312
Some pretty cool looking 'Only Watches' coming out for the charity auction. What are everybody's favorites?
post #44805 of 48312

Tudor Black Bay One is fantastic!
