Tissot Heritage Visodate Automatic is good bang for the buck - $650

With all the Speedy posts lately what's one more?



Lef. Horween Nato (crash $ but ultra-comfortable)

I've been wondering whether people tucked them back, despite that the Cordovan isn't finished on the underside. It doesn't bug you?

Is the Leffot strap worth it? It's extremely extremely expensive for a strip of leather.

How much did they charge you for service? 399 Euro?

Yes, later in the day I tucked it in the opposite direction. Better look.

Yes, and agreed.

CSCoHammers7, you aren't gonna much anything in gold within your price range, but $2500 would get you a used JLC Reverso Classic in steel, some Longines models, used Seamasters, an Air-King and a leather strap, maybe an old IWC portofino from 90's.

I agree. The desire for a gold case at under $2K is going to really limit choice.
post #7435 of 48312
Yeah, I have my heart set on an IWC Portugieser Automatic Ref. 3531 (My Holy Grail Watch) but they're difficult to find or way too expensive. Especially since I was recently married and need to buy a new house.

I have a vintage Omega speedmaster that is about 26 years old. I have had it overhauled once before, about 7 years ago. They charged $600 for this.

I just took my watch in last week becaues the bezel popped off and the crystal is a little cracked. They are claiming it needs another overhaul.

Am I getting ripped off or is this reasonable? Is the overhaul necessary? They claim Omega is telling them this. To me it runs fine; I'd be happy with just a fixed bezel and glass.

Maybe, depends on how much the bezel cost...here's a link to OEM bezels.

Just to give you an idea, my watch guy replaced my vintage 1959 Omega with an OEM crystal, gasket,oil/cleaned and machined a mainspring for $225.

I would pay that gladly. I just want my watch back already!

I think I'm getting jerked. Plus, the bezel is not broken, it just popped off. Can't they just re-attach it?

Yeah...I would they would be able to screw or pop it back on. Where did you send it? New Jersey?

Alright guys, now that I've got a few watches in my stable, I need something nice to put them in. So, recommend me a watch box please. Criteria: -window to see inside -no winder (pointless for me) -fits at least 6 watched (hey, gotta plan for the future!) -not too expensive Any suggestions?
