I think you are right. Lol my bad. Didn't realize the iwc was that much. I guess the rado is a lot less. What's the most I should pay for a rado chrono - 1200?

http://www.gemnation.com/watches/IWC...atic-1019.html Here it is from a grey market dealer for around $5k to get an idea of price*. It will be more from an authorized dealer but then you have some leeway to bargain with them. *Please note that I am not advocating buying from them.

- an IWC or OEM strap alone is $300

My vintage Omega Seamaster Chronometre, ca. 1964. Inherited this in beat-up shape, and had it fully restored at Omega about a year ago. Love this watch to death; not fancy like most of the watches in here though. To me, it's so simple and charming.

That's gorgeous ...

c_del: no apologies! That's a very nice watch, and Omega is a great, highly respected brand.

Thanks! The quality of some of these older watches is truly amazing; the watch is built like a tank. Before I got it, it was neglected; never oiled, never adjusted. It kept perfect time even despite this. It does have a COSC certified chronometre movement, but I wonder if it still is up to current COSC spec? I'm assuming they raise they standards over the years. Anyone know?

Newest addition:





Sorry about the crappy photos, my camera is on the mends. I paid $2,400 for it, is that a fair price?

Is that a 3741 quartz? $2,400 is probably a bit rich unless it's NOS (doesn't look like it though)

Nice watch - congrats!

(caveat: haven't seen many of those for sale recently so the above may be a dated view on market price)

Mmmm, T-dials...

...nice one! And the mecaquartz (?) is a very interesting piece of engineering.

/M, today with two tritium-dialled divers

Just wanted to share a couple of "tool watches", a new tool and a couple of great reads.



Cheers
