    As much as I love the GP 1960, that price is getting into Tortue Monopoussoir territory:

    GP also made a tonneau-cased two-register chronograph with a manual Lemania movement called the Richeville. There was one at a shop in Amsterdam in December for about €4.5K in 18K rose gold with blued hands and a great silver dial; I was highly tempted.

    That's a great looking watch. I assumed it would be in the $10K territory so never looked into it too much but around $5K is a great deal.

    You assumed correctly. There are several dealer listings for that Cartier chrono starting at just over USD 10K, mostly in 18K white gold.

    The GP Richeville looks like this (there are several case materials, a ton of dial options and at least two different chrono movements within this model range):

    The rose-gold-cased version with a handwound Lemania movement was the one I saw for for under €5K. Regrets about any misunderstanding.

    I've been wearing my Mark XV more and more after renewed interests in IWC's pilot line at this year's SIHH. [​IMG]

    @Belligero - Thanks for the clarification and now that I reread your post, it made sense originally. I blame pre-caffeine posting.

    I sensed a disturbance in the TWAT force and made my way to this thread (thanks @jbarwick for the mention).

    Let me back read...

    Nice, but it's the combination of the round dial with the cushion case that twists my melon.

    Speaking of BLNR....

    I bought this in spring of 2014 and have had it on my wrist almost every day since then. I haven't been able to come up with a definitive next addition yet. Have been been going back and forth between a few different watches including a 1931 Reverso, PAM512, JLC ultra thin moon, Speedmaster, and IWC Portuguese Automatic. It's been fun learning about different watches in the last couple years!

    El Cheapo here

    Anyone ever bought from Watchesaholic and are they reputable? They've got some nice discounts on, I'd not mind a MVMT watch for £25 just for a second option.
