If anyone has a Cartier CPCP Tortue Monopoussoir or time-only XL in white or yellow/rose gold, or knows of one for sale with box/papers for a fair price, please let me know. Thanks!

Just came back earlier today from the birth island of Pythagoras. 25 years ago, my first foreign trip with this watch was also to the Aegean Sea and it's still the perfect watch for this kind of thing.

I must agree that watches that are industrial/tool inspired and usually goes hand in hand with a bracelet. But I guess the trend of going strap has to do with the precious metal used to give it a more refined look.

Wow, am I missing a tiffany & co. stamp somewhere on the 5712 like the 5396?

5726 on a bracelet is the best Nautilus for me -- symmetry uber alles.

Should I pull the trigger?

 

The mis-aligned screws still annoys me.

^ Yeah, those screws are bugging the hell out of me too.

But on the other hand, it is made with a colour called Caviar Black, so you just know it's both expensive, exclusive and luxurious.

Pretty sure that's just marketing speak for 'black'.

Does anyone know any good AD's for Grand Seiko? I decided to go with the spring drive snowflake and haven't found it for other than full list so I wanted to check before just randomly calling dealers listed on their website.

 I've done a decent amount of business with Timeless Luxury out of Frisco, Texas (including where the Damasko on the last page was purchased and where I purchased a preowned GS at one point).

I've had a bad experience with AZ Fine Time - I deal regularly with the Seiko Boutique in NYC- best to just call them directly.
post #2817 of 3949
Yea I'm in NYC so I've been there and have no issue buying from them. I guess the question is has it been everyone's experience that you are basically going to pay full list.

A question on the 16710.

 

I'm in the market for one of these, and looked at two of them today at the same dealer. Both from the same year - about a decade old. One had the regular dial, the other was sticks. The bezel on the regular dialled watch clicked softly as expected when I turned it. The bezel on the sticks watch didn't seem to click at all - I could neither hear nor feel a click. It just seemed to be running on friction.

 

Any idea as to why this might be?

 

As an aside, amazing how light the 16710 feels compared to my 216570.
