post #10306 of 34712
i remember reading an article, i think maybe watchtime, that the royal oak is one of the few watches that actually costs quite a bit to manufacture, considering all of the detailing work and finishing. Not sure how accurate that article was, but i'd believe it considering how many brands put out generic looking steel watches that still cost 5k.

As a RO hater, I still must admit the bracelet is damn cool.

Just make sure with a vintage piece, it's in English if thats what you want. The pic there is French (which is kinda cool too if you ask me)

French would not be good!!

You said vintage...is the the Master Calendar no longer in production?

I think it would be kinda cool to have the day and month in French tho'! Either way that watch is excellent!

Baselworld is in March,,,any idea if JLC plans to introduce a new version of the Master Calendar?
post #10315 of 34712

I just received my brand new Tommy Hilfiger watch which I fancy a lot. I like the feeling of breaking in the new leather straps as always.

What do you think? It's nothing limited, or high-end or luxurious but it will do a pretty god job for a day watch just for a change.

Does JLC even "go" to Baselworld? I thought they release their items at SIHH. I honestly don't know.

I think that is a great looking watch, but I am always a bit surprised by watches that have a reserve indicator for 40 hrs. As far as I know, an automatic typically has a 40+ hr power reserve. Why would you then have an indicator for that on such a nice/higher end watch?

I'm paranoid about buyers remorse, so i would just wait until Baselworld 2012 just to be sure patch[1].gif

 

Who knows, you may find a non-JLC you fall in love with!

 

That is, of course, unless you have 10k burning a hole in your pocket cool.gif
