'0' Charge. Complete service under warranty. The Issue was that the Date was changing , however the Day was not.

Thanks JJ, it's a pink gold filled vintage from the 50s, strap is lizard skin.

New suggestions:

JLC Polaris Reissue 1968 (the one without the dauphine hands)
JLC Deep Sea Reissue 2011 European Version

I think these two have a chance to appreciate over time. Especially the Polaris 68

Vintage suggestions:

Patek Calatrava
A vintage VC or AP rotor automatic
Benrus Type 1 Dive
Heuer Bundeswehr chrono
Omega Centenary

So, just for fun, thought I would post my list for my next watch purchase. Still on the horizon... but I am working on it smile.gif. Selling off a bunch of my wardrobe, so I figured I would start saving!

Looking for something that is dressy [all I have now is a Damasko DC56 and Seiko Blue Sumo, so those are my go-to tool watches], but ideally something that could be worn with business casual. And here are the contenders--please feel free to offer suggestions:

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Master Ultra Thin [not decided on size].

467

I would get this with the silver dial, however. Although I love the MUT, a bit worried about it being worn in anything less than a suit or tie, which is a bit discouraging.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Reserve de Marche.

351

Probably number one on the list right now.

Grand Seiko SBGA011—“Snowflake” Spring Drive.

430

Maybe number two on the list... so many decisions!

Dornblueth & Sohn 99.1.

233

There is a lot to like about Dornblueth, so much character, and I love the Bauhaus style.

Dornblueth & Sohn 99.2.

311

This is on my wish list...
