Much-hyped, maybe... but look at this thing.

I always told myself I'd never spend over 1000 CDN for a watch... but look at this thing.
What's the general feeling in here on the 2824 movement under the hood of this? I'm assuming it's not even in the same ballpark as the other ETAs that get passed around, with Rolex adding their own unique touches to it... all the same, if the market and the owner assign value to this watch, than value is what it has. A 2824 should be relatively inexpensive to repair and service when the time comes, anyhow. Still, it would make an interesting discussion between this and the many-thousand-dollar cheaper Squale (or equivalent sub clone)...

The movement has some differences in the regulator (Triovis) and shock protection (Kif), but it's pretty much the same as any other of the better grades of 2824. I don't know about the general feeling, but I'm personally not all that interested in an ETA movement at that price; I'd rather have a well-looked-after Datejust for around USD 3500.

In the 70s the hip look was a gold chain bracelet worn along side a gold dress watch (think calatrava).

I have a charm amulet bracelet from my dad and figured these will complement it nicely. 😊

So, after a week or so of agonizing and then another week of more of the same, then a week of screwing around making the deal, I have this:
