Wow, Lange 1 moonphase in RG gives me goosebumps. That is just gorgeous. Happy new year to all.

I saw the Lange 1 Moonphase the other day... Jaw droppingly beautiful.

By the way, I think that I have made my decision. I am 99% sure that I am going to go (not GO) for the JLC MUT Moon. It is just such a gorgeous watch. And I may put the remainder in something less expensive to bum around in. Perhaps a Stowa, or something of that ilk. That is still to be determined.

Also, happy new years to all! I have had a great time reading, learning, and talking shop with y'all over the last year.

On an unrelated tangent, any recommended JLC ADs? Been looking at Govberg. In addition, I was looking around for watches for the lady friend, as she asked. My goodness are women's watches ever a scam! I was looking at the Michele watches in particular, and it is UNBELIEVABLE what they are getting away with... Murder! Touting strap changing as something revolutionary? It is absolutely absurd. For a close to $2,000 watch for some of them, you are getting so little it is absurd. They feel incredibly flimsy as well.

I am looking forward to it, Newcomer!! Then we will both have a dual moon collection!!! I am thinking of a stowa flieger (no date no logo)--you too? Kinda freaky our tastes are so aligned but kinda awesome as well.

 

As for womens watches, yeah pretty much a total scam. Stick to Cartier or get a Rolex Datejust/Explorer. At 36mm you can steal it on occasion devil.gif

 

For some inspiration, a repost:

I know, it is funny how we have gravitated to such similar watches. I think I am going with the JLC, a lot because of how thin it is. Sometimes it is great to have such a low profile watch. Plus, between the JLC and the Speedy Pro, you are pretty much set for any occasion! It is odd that we have such a similar collection, but I guess we have both been influenced by similar sources perhaps? Hopefully it will be here in a week or so, so I will be sure to update everyone!

Also, I am thinking about about going for the Stowa Marine Original. Feel like I need something in between the Speedy Pro and the JLC, in terms of dressiness, and they make one hell of a pretty deck watch.

Truth be told, I fell in love with the MUT Moon when I first laid eyes on it over at puristspro. I believe they were the first pix released from SIHH that year (2011). I had to wait the whole year before my AD got it in November. What a screw that was.

What do you guys think about the PP Tophat?

post #16509 of 31063
Pretty spectacular if you like rectangular cased watches.

I don't have any and that maybe I should.

I dug up the original inspiration for my purchase. Its funny as much as you look at watches, whether in-store, online or whatever, sometimes you just KNOW. I can still remember the moment I first saw it.

 

 I wasn't brave enough to order it over the phone though. i had to see it on my wrist first.

The rest is history 

 

Minor quibble: I wish it was a manual wind to make the watch that much thinner.

 

Sidenote: scrolling through those archives, I am such a JLC brandwhore.

That is the post that sold me as well. I feel like since I have worn a 40mm (which I find a bit big), on the wrist the 39mm will be a fairly small difference. Both the MC and the MUT Moon have a similar aesthetic. Ever since I saw the watch, I have always wanted it in my collection. The RDM always sung to me as well, but there is something wonderful about a Moonphase.

I also wish that it was manual wind. The Speedy Pro has really convinced me that manual wind is the way to go.

For 50 and overcrackup[1].gif Sorry I'm not really laughing at you, but the watch is just too out of date!
