Anyone ever see a JLC Deep Sea Vintage Chrono or Cermet? Worthwhile or just go buy a Rolex?

So that it ain't completely off topic, watch in the pic above is PP 3970J and, though you can't see it, was wearing Exp I 114270 in the pic at the bottom.

Not completely frillyvolous here; was on vacation in late August and apparently incurred some strange form of sun damage on my face. A somewhat shameful thing since I grew up baking in the sun.  But maybe it is an age thing, who knows.  Doctor ruled out lupus but advised hats.  Hats, I said.  Okay then, hats.

Although maybe the straw hat with the wider brim is really more what he meant versus the stingy brim felt fedora... biggrin.gif

Not quite sporting a cowboy hat yet but we will see.  icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif

Nope, but close enough: Columbus Park in Chinatown.

Today, an early morning flight to Cleveland, running on two hours of sleep. Aubergine Corthays and Patek 3970P keeping me company. The eggplant is really very subtle, passes as black at first glance.

Thanks, Roger. Ya know, your post in the EG thread about your Galways maiden voyage was so awesome that I was sorely tempted to get a similar pair myself, especially since Leffot here in NYC just sent out an email yesterday announcing a restock of the exact same make/classic color combo. I have the Galways in navy and midnight suede but there is something about the classic pair you have. Still loving them?

I love them big time - and like you, would love to add a second pair - very tempted by the blue and also the bronze.

Very nice. Feeling somewhat crappy this morning as I am running on a few nights of 4 hours of sleep each, but this just made me realize that I have nothing to compain about.

The mercenary business obviously is paying well.. I wonder what the other cast is wearing, as last film he got everyone Bronzos to wear..

Yep. My old home neighborhood. I recognized the scale of the buildings more than anything else and guessed at the park.

Well I suppose our worlds would have collided at some point. I am dressed as Wayne right now but had I been dressed like my avatar this man and I would have had a serious conversation about his high flying ways.

Yes, I've tried on the JLC Deep Sea Vintage Chrono.  I was disappointed and thought it was overpriced.   So given your scenario I'd opt for a Rolex, and put the difference in price toward another watch.
