Keith,

 

I have no idea of the model. I bought because I liked its simplicity and the nice layout as you observed. Also, it does not seem they are all that rare in Brazil. I may buy other models if I find it.

I am not knowleadgeble about watches, but now I am curious to find out more about it. Thanks, sir.

I can't recall if I've posted this one before: If you want a sub-$5k world time watch with an in-house movement, hard to beat this Frederique Constant. FC's insistence on maintaining their quartz line hurts the brand perception, but if you don't give a shit about such things it's a solid offering.



Next, in the spirit of the gmt discussion, here's a GMT Roadster.



A bit louche, but it's a nice sports watch / travel watch alternative for me.

I saw a similar Cartier in person.  I love the romans and dial color, I just don't like many of the case shapes Cartier has to offer.  I mean sometimes I see them on other people and think they look great but I personally wouldn't buy any I have seen.

 

Now that FC, that is hot and for sub-$5K that is a great choice.

I saw one in person and the blue seemed slightly darker than it looks in that pic. That said, I still hate that model - never understood the appeal of a 50/50 bezel, especially on a 24 hour clock. I don't mind it if the bi-color ring is small, but when it's that big it seems excessive.

There's one for sale at Darlor right now that looks to be in good condition and quite reasonable....trying to resist.

This prompted me to check their website, where I found this beauty Omega...

That's a (badly done) dial refinish. Wrong fonts, uneven printing - look at the uneven minute markers.

If its declared as refinished and priced accordingly, then I have no problem with it OK. The problem is that many sellers surreptitiously refinish or franken a watch without declaring it, and then charge primo prices.

Vintage Omegs are a minefield if you don't know what you should be looking for!!

Interesting piece here, announced recently via TZ.

 

Patek split seconds chronograph.  One of a kind.  In TITANIUM.  With a distinctly sporty (sportier) look than I've ever seen in the more traditional 5004s (even the limited 5004A's in steel with baton markers didn't look like this).

 

 

 

This limited (to ONE) piece will probably fetch a price that's a multiple of current secondary market prices for the 5004, even if 5004s trade anywhere from the mid-$200s to the low-$300s.

 

Pricing and stuff aside, what do you guys think of this piece?
