I have no need for a true dress watch. No way on disliking the Inge... it is fantastic.

Dino, you are totally right re: the vintage route - unfortunately, I just don't think I am a vintage guy. Too neurotic (and uneducated) to truly be confident about provenance, originality, etc. I am drawn to the vintage designs, however, which is why I like these faithful, yet modernized, tributes.

I can totally understand that. When you get something that is brand new with boxes/ papers etc from an AD, its easier and cuts out any potential drama or unpleasant surprises.  Wishing you luck with it.

3227 is a great watch, especially considering the Genta heritage.

I'd be proud to own one of those, and you could say it's on my short list for "one of these days...." (Right time/right price).



Re: the Speedy Mark II update, I'm also a fan, although I think I personally favor the non-orange version.

I finally was able to see one in the flesh a couple weeks ago, and it is a nice, modernized piece.

You either love that case shape, or you hate it.

Certainly the Co-Ax movement alone would justify the additional $$$, but I have also found myself looking at vintage listings on evilBay.

Like a ton of bricks. But I have been unable to put together the requisite cheddar, by legal means or other.

Disliking is not the same as losing the burning desire.

Haven't posted here in a while but just got these two today and just wanted to share.
Sorry for the watermark but the last few times I posted pics of watches untagged, I see them used on ebay the next day.

If I were in the market for a uniwatch (perish the thought), this might be the one:

Working with the ToG today.

I probably get the most wear out of this watch over all the rest.

Great looking watch, I've always really liked the bits of red on this watch.

Hey Moo I have a suggestion for you that I'm sure will be universally panned here as it is neither a Rolex or an Omega. If you find yourself married to the one watch plan allow me to suggest (and I'm getting ready to start ducking all the rotten fruit about to be tossed my way) a 42MM Panerai. Something like the Pam 337. As it's the Radiomir case it doesn't scream "Panerai," I think 42MM would be a perfect size for your wrist (not to big not to small), and with the ease of strap change and abundance of straps available you could dress it up or down for any occasion. You can really change the feel of the watch by choosing a carbon fiber vs an ammo vs gator vs calf, etc. Basically you get multiple options for the price of one watch + straps.

 

That being said, I agree you should take your time because, let's be honest, watch shopping is lots of fun.

Is the 337 still available new? It doesn't appear to be on the Panerai website. After a Hodinkee review, I really was turned on to that watch, but getting it doesn't seem to be that easy.
