That Patek is lovely, for sure, but yeah, way too old for me, too.

Hi Guys I need some advice, I want to buy one of these 2 watches, and would like to know which you would choose above the other and why.

Without a shadow of doubt the first one and even then only because the other is a twotone PG(!!)-SS abomination.

BTW, that's not to say PG-SS is always abominable for mens watches - check my "top 4 watches" for PG-white metal done well. Another good example is the early PG-SS piepan Omega Constellation.

no question on this one. the second 2 tone looks cheap and far too busy. Looks like a "middle management" watch. you know the guy that got promoted from AM to manager at circuit city and decides to buy his first nice watch? yeah...the second one would fit that bill.

The JLC MUT Moon could have been a perfect watch if they went for any color dial other than silver. Cream like the RG version or black would have been fantastic, but white enamel would be so :inlove:The silver combined with the silver hands gives me the same "middle management" vibe that people are criticizing on that two tone Longines, especially when seen in person vs in pics. JMHO.

If you guys are looking for a manual wind with similarly classical aesthetics, check out the Grand Seiko SBGW031..

By the way, I think that I have made my decision. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
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.

super glad you have decided. almost. lol.

if you like, PM me. i can probably help you out on both fronts. smile.gif

Although the first looks much better than the second, I don't know what the hell Longines were thinking when they placed the date window right above the 6 like that.
post #16525 of 34783
The six should have been removed. Or, alternatively, they should have chosen to cover the date aperture. I would suggest expanding your search, personally.

Longines Heritage 1942 Chrono is a pretty damn sweet watch

Would love to hear an explanation of cut numerals, radial flips, and other obvious dial imperfections on so many watches in the market. My best guess is that they want to maintain a level of dissatisfaction in their customers in order to sell more watches in the future.

Frederique Constant makes a good watch on a budget.

 

I really dont know why Longines does this. Maybe its too hard to modify the stock movement?

First one without any hesitation; as others stated, I don't get the date window over the 6. Either remove the 6 or place the date window at a more usual position. Otherwise, good looking watch, that would probably look better / be more versatile in silver.

I am certain it is because they do not want to alter the stock ETA date module. I have a feeling it is probably not simple to modify. Well, economically speaking.
