Yeah coming back home and reading through all this was interesting. To be honest, I kind of like it. I could go without the name calling, but when these things pop up I tend to learn something new or read a perspective I hadn't before considered (from one side or the other, and sometimes both). Maybe I'm the only one that enjoys them, but I can't help it. It's fun to me.

 

Also, lovely Tudor.

I'm getting my first watch and I decided on the Cartier Diver, two tone. I think it's versatile enough for daily ware, but will also look good when I decide to suit up.

At the Caesar's shops today, both Tourneau and the Cartier boutique, said it would cost $10,600, non negotiable. I know these places have high overhead, but is that still just typical salesman procedure on their part? Where would I go in Vegas to get a competitive price?

Bruh.

That's Daytona money.

The mantra here is always to buy and wear what you like, but ....could we offer any other suggestions?

Pretty hard to dress up a rubber strap, IMO, just for starters.

Reminiscing about an old friend as I look through my watch album. This Tudor Submariner 79090 was an awsome diver, with all the vintage Rolex traits at a modest price level. I bought it in the hope that it would satisfy my vintage Rolex craving. Yeah right. I would make a steeply declining drug addict. Fortunately, I only get high on worthless old steel divers. Watch is long gone, but not forgotten.

Great looking Tudor. I also regret selling a Tudor Sub. I had a 79091 with sapphire crystal. I should have held on to that one.

I found it here for $8600 http://www.chrono24.com/en/cartier/calibre-de-cartier-diver--id2662687.htm?query=cartier+diver&suchen=Search&dosearch=true&searchexplain=1&resultview=list&dosearch=true&urlSubpath=/search/index.htm

 

You will never really get a great deal in Las Vegas.  I've been there many times, they get so many wealthy tourists that do not seem to care about getting the best price that many of the ADs out there do not discount or give rather small discounts.  I would look for a Cartier AD outside of Vegas or at least off "The Strip" who is not part of a big chain and see what they will do for you.  Tourneau is a ripoff and I find their sales tactics ridiculous.  In addition, Cartier Boutiques do not discount.  

 

Wishing you luck with your search.

Congrats.

Enjoy it.

It is amazing to me how it looks so much more substantial on the bracelet.

Maybe because it is 22mm.

That's a beauty!  Congrats and enjoy.

The Black Bay does look better on a bracelet than that aged strap most of the company photos have.  I want to check out Tudor in person as they have some interesting pieces in that price range.

post #33464 of 34052
^^^Thanks gents! I think the BB looks good on bracelet or strap. I wasn't a big fan of the OEM distressed strap, but I have a pile of 22mm straps already and will definitely experiment with them.

I wish I could also get the Tudor deployant by itself, as it's pretty cool, but apparently Rolex only sells it with the strap.

^^ Maybe keep your eye out on watch forums. I'm sure someone will be selling one eventually.
