Wondering where I can get a simple and classic gold watch with a black leather band. ~$100-250

500

just bought the cliftons, they seem to squeak when i walk... do they need breaking in, or is something wrong?

I've been looking at cufflinks on ebay and some of them say they have "gold fronts." What does that mean? (A google search for "gold fronts" leads to a lot of pictures of blinged out teeth and not much else.)

Could mean anything. I guess 'fronts' refers to the front part of the cuff-link, as opposed to the bar on the rear side, so would imply that the whole front part is gold. Since it's eBay though it's debatable whether it means actual gold or just 'gold-coloured'.

It depends on where the squeak is coming from. It could be a lot of things.

No, just wash in cold water and hang dry. Stretch the collar when you iron and you should be ok.

Looks nice, it is very neutral, I would say it would go with almost anything.

Nice pilot strap, though kinda different on a navy-style dial. As to the brand of watch, hard to say definitively, given that there are no identifying marks on the dial or strap presumably. Do you know what movement is in the case and/or anything else about the watch? COULD be a Laco Navy though I doubt it, since Laco (Lacher & Co., Germany) brands its dials, apart from some of their flieger line that is (namely, b/c they've "re-issued" modern fliegers based on those which they actually made during WW2, Laco being one of only five official suppliers of flieger b-uhr to the luftwaffe; that said, their navy line is branded). See for e.g., https://shop.laco.de/en/Navy-Watches.html

Whilst it's possible I suppose that Laco did a special project navy-line w/o the branding (they sometimes do special, custom made projects), it's more likely that the watch is made by somebody else, either a copy or, perhaps, a custom job by a small maker perhaps? Without more information--in particular, what's inside the case/the movement, which should be signed IMO--it's impossible to say for certain, there being many replicas as well as custom-watch makers out there, some of the them quite reputable (i.e., custom watch makers), but others not so much, at all (think i.e. china, etc.). Do you know anything about the movement, etc. (note: a watch is comprised of both a design and a movement, in my op.)? Are you considering this watch--i.e., is there one physically on sale somewhere that you are thinking about purchasing? If so, get more info--and remember, what's inside counts. Hope this helps.

Try e-bay, where you *might* find a vintage available for auction, though solid gold? You know the price of the ounce these days, right? wink.gif

That's okay, though: at that price, I'm thinking a Movado quartz w/ the Museum dial ... classic "gold look" case w/ the 12 o'clock dot on black dial, on a black leather strap. Iconic.

+1. That is an interesting jacket for sure though. It appears seer sucker at first and yet is 100% wool. I'm sure you're not gonna find another one so if you like it I say get it. I really like the buttons too.
post #9463 of 30556
Yeah, that's what I thought as well. I first looked at it thinking it was seersucker, but then the fact that it was wool intrigued me. Thanks for the comments.

Well, I returned them... got annoying. But it was coming from that area in the middle that the laces cover rubbing up against the sides against it.

would it cost a lot to have a 38r blazer tailored to a 36r? not just the chest, but shoulders, sleeves etc
