I am crayz about watches.. But if I have got chances to buy only one, it would be definetly Green Sub... One watch Nirvana... I hope soon You are going to get one to your collection...
I've seen plenty of Pateks including 5070 chronographs, and the photo above is the real deal. You should do more homework and you'll see the difference between a Patek and what you posted. Aside from being chronographs on straps...they don't look anything like they are from the same factory.
For one thing, I was talking about the shape of the hands and numbers and the, imo, rather crude way the numbers are cut off.. Obviously I am mistaken besides being an ignoramus. I'm sure then, it was offensive to depechedior and perhaps even Cylon. My apologies to all and thank you for the clarification. D.
I'll edit my other post.
Generally, I'm not a huge fan of Pateks, but I'd rather have a 5070 than a Datograph. As for the Datograph, it has a great movement and the quality is there, but I've never liked the rest of the watch. A friend of mine had a rose gold Datograph, and he lost interest in it and sold it within a year of buying it. The only Langes that I really love are the Lange 1s. I'd definitely take a Lange 1 over any of Patek's Calatravas, Annual Calendar, or lesser complications.
Once you get into perpetual calendars or chronographs, I'd opt for a Patek.
I think Vianney Halter are really creative, but too avante guard. They make a statment, but after a while I think I'd tire of them. For me watches with classic looks are more wearble and they will look great now or 20 years from now. Some of Vianney Halter's watch's are really different, but they may seem dated and weird in 20 years. But if you don't care about that, go for it.
De Bethune, nice but I've never had much interest in them.
The only issue with magnetization was my wife Cartier Tank Francaise. She worked in a hospital and her department was near the MRI machines. We briefly considered getting her something antimagnetic, or letting her wear my Oysterquartz ref 17000, which is highly antimagnetic. However once they moved her department to another part of the building, magnetization was no longer an issue. I think if you wore a more modern watch you may have fewer issues even if its not specifically anti-magnetic. Short of the MRI department issue, ...phones, computers, etc have never affected any of our watches, none of which are specifically anti-magnetic.
But it's like comparing a Ferrari and a Lamborghini I guess
Also a Dato loses value while 5070s appreciate - that's noone faults exc ours (the consumer) but it is wht it is
And of course I had a choice - and I picked the 5070
