    Hi guys...seeking some advice here...I'm visiting New York and Toronto next month and wondering if any of you guys know any really good Longines dealers in either of those cities...I'm specifically looking for a 39mm longines hydroconquest auto with black rubber strap...I've called dealers I found online and it appears the model I want (L3.694.4.53.2) is an "international model"... They have other models of the hydroconquest but all seem to be 41mm and it's the 39mm that I want. Any suggestions for where I could check in New York or Toronto? I'd prefer buying from a store, than online so I could try it on first....thanks!

    Am I even aloud to post an Omega in here? Or is that too small-time?

    Nice. I have been wearing mine on Omega rubber lately.

    That one also looks great on a Bond NATO.

    I'm think of throwing the Speedy on a Bond NATO for my upcoming trip to Norway. I'm going to be a ton of hiking and figure it would be a lot more comfortable on a NATO.

    I knew this day would come...able to grab brand new BLNR for 20% off (personal deal since I have a very good connection with my AD). Now, I'm able to move my white face Daytona which I got for 20% off as well to my good friend for the price I paid. I end up with extra 3K in my pocket and brand new BATMAN :satisfied:

    What would you do..?

    This is ironic or I don't know how to call it. Remeber a few pages ago when I said that an IWC or some other expensive watch could be worth to lose your hand? Well yesterday in the Four Season Hotel in Mexico, a guy received a shot because they tried to stole his watch, he resisted (he didn't knew the guy had a gun), he stiil received the shot and lost the watch.

    This is sad. [​IMG]

    I like the Batman a lot, and as I mentioned a few days ago its a serious contender for a future watch purchase. However, I'd only get one in addition to my Daytona. If having one meant I'm selling my Daytona then I'd hold off on the BLNR. Obviously, if you need the $3K back in your pocket well then that is a different story, I suppose at that point you might then be needing more and just sell the Daytona without purchasing the BLNR.

    Keep the Daytona. I agree with Dino 100%.

    thanks Dino, I love the Daytona and not looking to sell it but it was a brief thought that I had. I don't have extra funds to purchase BLNR but talked to my friend and he offered to buy it.
