The Watch Appreciation Thread - Page 1682

post #25216 of 35675
Thanks for all the kind words guys. When I saw the watch a few years back I knew I loved it but I couldn't afford to purchase it. I had looked for it when I was financially stable and it was no longer around. Finally 2 years later after having dinner with my mom we walked in and there she was. I tried it on and a week later I picked it up. Aside from purchasing a house this was my biggest purchase so it means a lot to me and I think it'll be a perfect watch for me for years to come.

Of course now I have a panerai which is more so my fun piece. I have watched and read this thread and enjoyed a lot of the more expensive and luxurious pieces but I thought I might share my piece.

Now mimo, when do we get to see that poor man's watch you mentioned?

Wes, don't build it up man!  It's three months away, and way below par for this thread!  

 

Justin, is that from the "Master Collection"?  I love the hands.  Looks pretty big - I'm interested to know how it works for you as a dress watch if the Pan is your "fun"?

To be fair it's steel covered in rubber with screw in links and a titanium butterfly deployant. I heard msrp for the bracelet alone can exceed 2000. 1000's actually not bad if you consider what other brands are charging for their steel offerings

(I never post there; perverse I know.)

While the PMWT is reserved for more affordable pieces, I don't think the opposite is true for TWAT. Despite the fact a lot of expensive watches get posted here, I always felt it was just a place to talk about watches in general, regardless of price.

Yes, it's a master collection, looks like a 44mm dial, which is big.

I love Longines.

That's two very solid backups, though....and surely Longines will make it right.

thanks for that, Keith.

nailed it. it is a 44mm. the 42 face wasnt as appealing the way the chrono sat so I opted for this size.

Although "the crowns" acknowledge that this sister of theirs is much closer to my heart than others:



That is gorgeous!

IWC Saturday. This watch, for some reason, really puts a smile on my face every time smile.gif Much more so than my 5001, go figure.
