    No kidding. On top of that I'd be worried that I'd get sick of the engraving. I would just leave it alone as it's beautiful as is.

    I agree. Somewhat not a Reverso if you ask me. Loses it's appeal.

    That would be great. She could then inherit someday. I think the watch could easily be considered unisex considering it's width. Love it in the rose gold. "R" has no significance to me, but I still like it a lot.

    In honor of the much-hyped announcement of the Black Black Bay, I'm wearing this rare transitional today:

    [​IMG]

    Tudor 94010 Snowflake with round markers - produced in, as far as I can glean, very small numbers. It's even got the mismatched pearl, like the new Black Bay.

    :cheers:

    Quite a steal at $26,400.

    There were couple galleries and an article I posted a while back on the history and process of the reverse engravings. Some of the pieces were so impressive they were fully color enameled, miniature works of art. Quite amazing.



    If you mean they steal your money in return for that monstrosity, then a steal it is.

    Bamford watches remind me of goofy kit cars.

    I agree dino, but If Rolex themselves were ever to produce something like that, it would destroy the universe.

    How long have folks been dreaming about something similar...stainless/ceramic/Newman-style?

    Make a white dial version with some red accents? In-house chrono? Heck, I'd probably sell a kidney if I had to.

    Much-hyped, maybe... but look at this thing.

    I always told myself I'd never spend over 1000 CDN for a watch... but look at this thing.

    What's the general feeling in here on the 2824 movement under the hood of this? I'm assuming it's not even in the same ballpark as the other ETAs that get passed around, with Rolex adding their own unique touches to it... all the same, if the market and the owner assign value to this watch, than value is what it has. A 2824 should be relatively inexpensive to repair and service when the time comes, anyhow. Still, it would make an interesting discussion between this and the many-thousand-dollar cheaper Squale (or equivalent sub clone)...

    Does the black bay really use Arial as its font?

    Usually Arial tends to look ugly as hell, but the font on the black bay works well!

    It also makes the Sub look gaudy and overdone.

    Great watch, and it looks just right on a strap!

    I'm looking for a versatile daily dress watch and I think I'm settled on a rolex but open to other suggestions.

    I'm looking for a pre-owned datejust II with a blue dial and fluted bezel. Good starter dress watch? What would be the going rate for one in excellent condition?

    Anyone got any good places, I can comparison shop for one?

    Similar to this...

    About 3 wks ago I mentioned that I was thinking about one of the new Cellini's - tifosi and Dino and a few others made some remarks that got me thinking....
    So, after a week or so of agonizing and then another week of more of the same, then a week of screwing around making the deal, I have this:

    The movement has some differences in the regulator (Triovis) and shock protection (Kif), but it's pretty much the same as any other of the better grades of 2824. I don't know about the general feeling, but I'm personally not all that interested in an ETA movement at that price; I'd rather have a well-looked-after Datejust for around USD 3500.
