agree with this. while i do think there are certainly design similarities, i still agree with the above.

Likewise. Really comparing cats to kittens.

The other alternative is potentially to keep the JLC Master Control, and then perhaps pick up a Rolex No Date Sub.
All three options have been swimming around my head for the past week or so, and I am at something of an impasse. It makes the most sense to me to sell the JLC MC and pick up the JLC MUT Moon. I would like a MUT Moon, and just do not see the point of owning a MC and a MUT Moon. On the other hand... the GO PML is such a beautiful watch, and it has always pulled at the heartstrings. However, recent wristshots of it have been a bit of a let down, and I wonder if I will always simply wish it was a Lange.
Decisions, decisions. Anyone have any thoughts (Dino, I have a feeling I can pin yours biggrin.gif).

I always liked the GO Panolunar until I got one and couldn't tell the time in low light conditions. Looks very nice, however.

Yes, it fits under the cuffs:

Very nice -if you can wear it, do it - no girly watches.

Well I agree if the watch is similar in price, for example I bought a JLC Master Control recently, I started to look at the IWC Portofino which was less expensive (around 1400 EUR less). But I didn't want to settle for a watch with no in-house movement and I liked the JLC more style wise with it's 39 mm case vs 40 mm of the Portofino etc. But I still want a JLC Duomèmetre à Sphérotourbillon, however I think will have to settle for the Master Control...  Anyway watches can be really expensive so sometimes I think you do have to settle. 

While I appreciate what goes into a Tourbillon or Minute Repeater, I have never really had a desire to own one.  So while I do want certain higher end brands in my collection, maybe I've never felt I've settled because my grail watches are more realistic.  Sure if I chose slightly lesser items maybe I would be able to own more watches or own more complicated pieces, but they might not mean as much to me.    Everyone is different, and what makes sense to us as a good purchase, or what seems like settling may mean differnet things to each of us.  I just don't buy things that I feel would be settling.   We all have to make choices that are right for each of us and those choices might be different.

I've also heard Breguet hands referred to as "Pomme/Apple" hands.  I've never heard that the hands had to be blued, but to be honest, most watches I've seen with Breguet/apple hands that were blued.

The former is more interesting because it forces you to compromise. In addition, the choices can be more useful and applicable to most people.

well, then, i have to think about that. my general watch daydreaming does not go in that direction. this requires some thought.

I can only think of three: PP 5110P, FPJ Resonance, JLC Reverso Platinum Sun Moon (the old version, not the XGT stuff)
post #16455 of 31016

In no particular order...

 

Piaget Altiplano manual wind with subdial for seconds

Patek rectangular Gondolo for something off the beaten path

JLC Reverso (not sure which model I would really want, but it has to be the GT size.  I find the XGT cased watches too thick and not as versatile for me).

AP RO Chronograph

Lange Cabaret or Lange 1.
