I know how I felt about it - it's why I swapped straps. smile.gif

Yes indeed. I have never seen that one before. It's a real beauty.

Very nice ML! The dial is very, very well proportioned. What is the size on it though?

Also, Hodinkee just posted and article on the FC Slimline Moon, with some pictures. I really like the fact that everything is set through the crown.





Quite impressive. At the $3,000 price point, that is about as good as you can get. Well, it would be if it was not for the 42 mm size.

38mm is what I recall for the ML.

That 5712 is amazing.. I had to do a quick search on the web to reaffirm that I can't afford that watch. Still gorgeous to look at.

I love my FC and and have my eye on another. Bang for the buck is good.

I do agree they need to decide - the whole "love" theme and heart shaped cutouts makes them look so very cheap.

I had the pleasure of attending a JLC/Govberg dinner this week.  The watchmaker there, told me he loves the movement in my Dualtime/Hometime.  I also drooled over the new Hometime Aston Martin edition.  I wish I took some good pictures but the light was low and I was much too busy absorbing knowledge.

Awesome news and great experience.  Govberg does put together some interesting events!

Following up on this from a couple of days ago... I am relatively new to watches. I got a rather large tax refund this year and decided to replace a vintage Heuer self winding deluxe that I lost in Berlin a couple of years ago. My budget is $3 - 4,000. I could either go with 3-4 watches around the $1K mark, like a chrono, a diver and a dress watch OR get one watch that I can wear with everything from a t-shirt and jeans to a suit and tie for business meetings.

As you can tell from my postings, I have been struck by the Habring2 watches, but I would appreciate input on other brands and specific models within my budget. Keep in mind that the idea is to buy one watch to rule them all, not to start down the slippery slope of collecting or upgrading if avoidance is possible.

A few criteria...

  • I don't like gold or two-tone.
  • Must slide easily under a long sleeve shirt cuff (see suit comment above).
  • Don't need a date function. I (usually) know what day it is.
  • My wrist size is 7.5 inches if that matters.

Thanks in advance.

I think Habring2 is a really cool indy. Especially the new doppelchrono. If I can offer you any suggestion... be patient, and wait for what you really want!

Also, I think that an Omega Speedmaster is a SUPERB choice for you. But I am a bit biased.
