Re: SIHH 2011

I've never been a big JLC fan but the Master Ultra Thin Moonphase is a good looking watch. The reverso tribute 1931 and reverso with the enamel dial (is the model called email?) are beautiful. I'd never considered a reverso before but I'd go after one of those 2 if the opportunity presented itself.

The VC Worldtimer is a beaut.

IWC's newest version of the handwound portuguese looks great. It's essentially the same as last year's model but without the different color subdial. If only it weren't 44mm.

Thanks for those who filled me in on those info on NATO straps, I really appreciate it.

I'm glad to see all of you have great looking watches, I'm sort of a beginner so I'll be around to learn from you guys. i will also be asking some questions that might consider to be common sense by some of you guys, haha.

Not mine, but neither are most p0rn objects PP 5296, my most recent infatuation. Anyone here own one? I would love to hear your thoughts!

I'm not a huge fan of tourbillons, but I really like this one as well. I quite like the integration with a regulator, the offset dials, and that VIII through X disappear the other 9 hours of the cycle to provide a full, unobstructed display.

That being said, my grail is still the Richard Lange PLM.

Quite like the new B+M Capeland Flyback, but $7K for a B+M is a bit rich.

post #7241 of 33518
^^USD7K is very expensive for a B&M.

You should expect at least a 40% discount off retail. I'd wish Richemont would put their brands in their respective space. This kind of segment creep does no one any favours.
post #7242 of 33518
Yup, would much rather buy a Glashutte Chronograph XL at that price. The design of the B+M reminds me of Longines.
post #7243 of 33518
In late 98, I bought a B&M Capeland chrono, black face, great design. Then, 4 - 5 years ago, I wanted to have it checked out and I sent it to a B&M service center (it worked fine, but was starting to run a bit late). They told me the lube used had gunked up (wtf?!?!) and I would need to change the entire face of the watch - for a couple thousand dollars, IIRC.

Off to eBay it went, and I bought a Seamaster instead. I'll never buy B&M again, even though I think they have very elegant design. I still like the classic Capeland and Hampton models very much.

I honestly had never heard of Gerald Genta so thanks for explaining that to me.

There is too much going on there. Plus, it looks like a Longines/Brietling clone. And for 7K you can do MUCH better.

This is a better option IMHO, less busy design & probably a third of the price:
