    Wow, just out of curiosity, how easily available is that IWC Portofino in that particular color combo?

    That's a Portuguese Chrono, though that particular model has been discontinued.

    Before long you're hanging out on TimeZone with the WIS's looking to score JLC's and Pateks and trying to convince your kids there's a certain "nobility" to community college.

    [​IMG] How true!

    I was looking at that AquaLung instead of my Type XXI.

    I want to say it is 39mm or 40.5.

    I believe that model is a 40mm case.

    Whats the consensus on JLCs Reverso Classique watch? Never considered JLC as a serious watch as its reversible feature seemed a bit gimmicky to me. But my AD said that its a great watch for the money and tends to be under appreciated by the market. He also told me that JLC makes all their movements in-house.

    Iconic watch. One of the true classics. Very elegant IMO. I tend to prefer the medium-size 'Grande Taille' case to the smaller 'Classique' but YMMV

    Junghans is one of germanys older watch manufacturers I believe. This is one ot the "Max Bill" series Designed by ... "Max Bill, contemporary of the Bauhaus generation, friend of Gropius, Le Corbusier and van der Rohe. The brilliant painter, designer, sculptor and architect designed this wristwatch, which has now been brought out in the original design - with a mechanical movement, of 1962. Max Bill by JUNGHANS wristwatches come in four original designs and also as original wall clocks designed by Max Bill in the Fifties. " smal blog entry : http://www.eleventhvolume.com/miscel...-for-junghans/ (not mine) Had a look at the Chronoschope last year, but decided to pass. to colose to one of my vintage ones. But nice.
