I really do love mine...a pic for some inspiration?

@IGotId really nice. Although I do wish you bought mine. Ha. Is that a Casa Fagliano strap?

That Hodinkee Zenith is pretty tempting.

Does anyone know which reputable brands offer custom watches? Not necessarily built up from the ground, brand new movements, but maybe just custom dials with modules off an existing model.

I can think of Vacheron and RGM, but anyone else? I know Patek does as well, but you have to be an existing customer of some repute.

My father-in-law is looking and he has a budget of about $60-$70K.

Definitely nice. Maybe will bring up the value of my El Primero. One gripe is the pushers, not too keen on those.

Wacky. You can get a rainbow flyback and a 38mm 1969 tri color reissue for the price of one of these. Well, to each their own.

Habring2, which is way under budget, but super solid.

Thanks - I think he's hoping for a more 'traditional' manufacture in the vein of JLC, GP, Zenith, etc.

How much is VC's bespoke offering (stock movement, just dial changes)?

JLC has a customization service.

Agree on the pushers.  Perhaps not a deal breaker, but pretty close.  Still so much else to like.  At $7900 I have other preferences, but I can see where this would give folks pause.
