Don't be sold on a discount, be sold on the product.  There is a reason its deeply discounted.  Its nothing significant.  It has a good but ordinary workhorse of a movement powering it, however, its basically a fashion watch with a cigar/cigarette manufacturer's name on it.  Granted I know they sell other things, but to me its like buying a watch that says Krug on the dial. IMHO there are very few instances where luxury brands that are not dedicated watch makers actually sell or make watches that are worth owning.  Personally, I'd skip it and get something else, but if you can get it cheaply enough and you love it then go for it.  Good luck with whatever you decide.

Love the dial color on that one and the strap is really comfortable.  Enjoy it, its a beauty!

 

Thanks for the advice Dino, sometimes you get 'discount drunk"  20K watch for 3.5K. I still think its a great looking watch. I'm going to sleep on it!

I guarantee not one person ever paid 20k for that watch.

From what I see, it is very rare that people pay full retail on any watch these days.

Your welcome.  Yes, its very easy to be sold on a discount or as you say to get "Discount drunk."  They can give it an MSRP of whatever they want.  However, anyone who knows anything about watches would never have bought that watch for anything remotely close to $20K.  There are far too many truly great watches for less than that.  I'd rather have a watch that is honestly a $3,500 watch all day long rather than a fashion watch with an MRSP that can't be justified or sustained.  A $20K fashion watch that sells for $3,500 is a watch that if you ever tired of, you'd probably never been able to sell, much less sell for $3,500 (if you are lucky and it had a lot of gold content you'd be trying to sell it at a pawn shop based on gold weight).  

 

Save up for something you'd really love to own (then look into discounts if applicable).  Cheers!

Sorry, but there's no way this thread needs to be a forum on its own or needs any sort of FAQ. The thread title says it all. This thread should be left to using the KISS method as it currently does. Over 3,000 pages long and still thriving, not just surviving. We're not in danger of dying off or anything. Silly suggestion.

^ Yeah.

Sorry to belabour the point, but "intimidated" by a forum thread? Yeah, I'm sitting at my keyboard, just terrified of posting on an internet thread. Seriously? WTF is this world coming to? confused.gif

Just slowly wade your way through it over, IDK, maybe a month or so? You'll be so much richer in terms of knowledge at the end of it. Fuck instant gratification, it never results in anything good or worthwhile.

Then again, I guess SF is a business after all. The bottom line is the bottom line. You do what you have to do to get new customers.

The FAQ/forum ideas are the IMO the equivalent of the 3 o'clock date window - how's that for an analogy? Sure you'll sell more shit, but you'll sell more shit.

What the hell is a FAQ even going to attempt to address? "Davidoff watches are not good"? "JLC is the most underrated large marque"? "Everyone hates Rolex. Then they begin to know better."?

Cool, nice to see that you ended up getting one!

I was very satisfied with the Daytona when I first got it, and my appreciation for it hasn't diminished over the intervening three years. The combination of wearability, versatility and quality that it offers is outstanding among chronographs; there really aren't many out there that are rugged and waterproof, yet slim and refined. And the 4130 movement is really something special.

Technical stuff aside, it just never seems to look or feel out of place. Especially when travelling, I like a watch that doesn't have to be taken off the wrist.



(Edit: Mistyped "4030" instead of "4130", although I'd love to get a Zenith-movement Daytona to go with the newer model.)

@apropos : If I am indeed invited to draft FAQs for the reincarnate TheWAT, be sure that is already some overlap in our thinking.  I shall endeavour to express the special community spirit here, appropriately. (PM and let me know if, how and when you want it, @LA Guy)
