 Most likely.  An acquantance has a Tiffanys watch of roughly the same vintage, with a power reserve and I think a date, and he said its powered by a Peseux movement.

Congrats!!!  Thats really beautiful. You are not making it easy to stay out of the Reverso E-Buddy Cub!!! However, until I finish our taxes and do a few boring things for the home, I'll have to be content with something like the one in your top photo wink.gif.    I look foward to hearing some of your ownship impressions once you've had it awhile.  Are you thinking of getting it engraved?  Congrats again...I love it!

And I know, I know... I'm pretty terrible at keeping stuff on the down low, and I'm pretty hopeless at being a tease. No way am I going to no frills SF and drop a 3970J on the board out of the blue, I don't think I'm even capable of that though it certainly would be fun.

When I proposed to my now-fiancee, it was a complete non-surprise for her. As in literally everything, from the setting to the timing to the way I proposed and even the ring, everything was expected, a complete non-surprise. She stuck around though for the proposal, (very kindly) acted surprised and said yes, so I guess I must have been doing something right... heh.

I guess I just can't contain my excitement in the lead up, and stuff leaks out. shog[1].gif

(that's not what she said)

 

Congratulations for everything!  The red looks great.  Am a sucker for red hues myself (for shoes in particular) so seeing it on a Reverso, and on your wrist, is very gratifying.  Thanks for sharing!

 

Man, when I proposed to my wife almost 15 years ago she expected it too, and guffawed with much gusto when she caught me in the middle of preparations.  She said yes, though, and she's still married to me despite the recent ramp-up in my spending habits on things like watches.  Guessing it's all good... for now. biggrin.gif

 

Congrats again!

Congratulations Apropos, I love it:

 

Frilly, those are some wonderful shoes.  But seriously, your nom de plume is becoming painfully ironic!  There are not many frills more frilly than a top Patek Philippe multiple complication, and high class shoes made to order!

 

Tell me you drive a Prius. That would make you as boring as you pretend you are.lol8[1].gif

Guys, I'm in a pickle here. I'm looking for a new watch to wear besides my Seamaster Pro, and decided to go, seeing as I already own a diver, with an aviation-themed watch. I went to check out Breitling, but tbh they felt flimsy compared to my Omega.
 
I narrowed it down to these two choices:
 

 

SPM Co-Axial Chronograph, the 50th anniversary limited edition, 42mm, mechanical, from 2008.
 
or
 

 

 
SPM with a gold bezel & pushers, 38mm, automatic, from the 90's (IIRC it was made in '96)
 
 
I like the LimEd because it has a display caseback, it's a bit bigger & it's newer. The golden one looks better fit to wear with a suit/classy outfit though & is less expensive. I don't think one could convert the caseback to a crystal one though (on the golden one).
 
 
Any advice guys?

its maybe 39mm inc crown, not small at all on the wrist. but very dainty compared to the panny.

here is the inside. as apropos said, i imagine its ETA or something. no branding on the movement.

it is hand wound mechanical, not quartz. they no longer make this one, but i remember when they came out with it, i loved it then as i do now. i do not think its a co-branded effort, just tiffany and likely ETA. not a particularly fancy movement, but decorated well enough. i think it is a truly elegant watch. a beauty imo.

Movement is identical to my Stowa Antea KS, down to the placement of the screws. A Peseux 7001 or ETA 7001 (same thing, as ETA bought Peseux) as mentioned above.

So Stitches, who would have actually made this one for Tiffany?

Most modern Tiffany mechanicals use ETA 2892A2 derived movements. I don't know who does the cases or modifications.

My Tiffany Regulator is based on a 2892.

I wear my Speedy Pro with a suit and it looks fine. But mostly, I way prefer the tri-compax design to the unbalanced "Valjoux 7750" look.

Take the original, all the way! One of the best watches out there, period, in my most humble of opinions.

Hmm.  I don't actually own a car, living in NYC and all.  I do rent hybrid cars by the hour though.  To shop at big box stores and get major discounts when I purchase 48 rolls of tissue paper! That sounds pretty boring, right!
