    gdl203 - wow, those 30T2's are stunning!!! Do you own them? Where di you get them. Also, the pictures are extremely nice. What camera do you use?

    Sorry I should have mentioned that these are just great shots of 30T2's I found in various posts. They're not my shots or my watches... although I wish I owned that steel and gold one [​IMG] [​IMG]

    i ve been so delighted by my new oris from bernard watches.

    here is their link to the watch ,http://www.bernardwatch.com/Oris
    it is BW# ORI237

    the second from left. retail is $1350 according to the site but whether it is or not, i am so satisfied with mine. it is beautiful and great bargain for 350.

    no im not affiliated or getting anything from bernard other than i just want to spread the word.


    i dont think it holds any investment value, but for a watch to enjoy it is great.

    I've had a yen for a Breguet or a L Leroy watch.
    I saw their new Tradition wristwatch, which was made in the style of an exposed gilt movement, and it was rather underwhelming. That particular style of pocket-watch type movement does not translate well into a wristwatch as it looks awkward.

    It lacks the lyricism of the originals:

    gdl203 - regarding the Omega's you posted pictures of, there is one very similar currently on ebay. Check it out at:

    I do not think the hands are original nor are they the correct style for this watch. What do you think?

    Those two Breguet are SERIOUS watches, of completely different styles. The skeleton is a bit severe, but nevertheless an impressive timepiece. Whereas, the pocket watch embodies the notion that elegance is simplicity. Meow!

    i've inquired with watchbuys regarding the availability of the tangomat. they estimated that they'll be probably getting their by the end of november. it seems there was a delay in availability because of a fire in NOMOS' factory in glashutte.

    I actually feel the pocket watch is more severe as it's somewhat stark and very elegant.

    The wristwatch is very busy, and looks better on picture as it's somewhat bizzare looking in person.
