From what I have seen, RGM watches are generally well regarded. Their base watches all use some sort of ETA variation, but their in-house stuff is intriguing. The logo really messes their watches up for me, in my most humble of opinions.

I don't mind redials if you know what you are getting. For that reason it might be a bit high. I wouldn't buy the rolex. Saw a 1945 Brietling today on TZ that had me drooling though. $1800.

I completely agree. I just think that the merit of RGM watches is in the completely Made in the USA ones. I am a fan of their designs, but I think that the price is a bit steep for the ETA variations. I just haven't seen enough information about them to really think about putting down the cash for one.

While I respect Cylon - he is obviously mistaken (hey it happens to all of us) and that Datejust is just the thing for you. Absolutely no vested interest in this answer lookaround.gif

That was my first thought for a 1953 watch...and price is a little high. I'm not a fan of redials, prefer the character that patina provides.

Here's a pic of my 1959 Omega Seamaster for comparison.

Looks like a skilful redial to me.

Been wanting a simple style watch that would be versatile.

Thank you! Yeah, the face has aged quite a bit--looks better in person. It's a great watch--has a beautiful movement.
