Just poking fun @ the last Patek! Do'nt you dare try to ruin the fun
That Patek is lovely, for sure, but yeah, way too old for me, too.
Hi Guys I need some advice, I want to buy one of these 2 watches, and would like to know which you would choose above the other and why.
Without a shadow of doubt the first one and even then only because the other is a twotone PG(!!)-SS abomination.
BTW, that's not to say PG-SS is always abominable for mens watches - check my "top 4 watches" for PG-white metal done well. Another good example is the early PG-SS piepan Omega Constellation.
Wearing this one today.
LOVE this FM. i passed on a crazy hours once....still wish i wouldve picked that up. such a fun watch.
meh. id never buy it. ever. but if it was given to me, id wear the hell out of it.
no question on this one. the second 2 tone looks cheap and far too busy. Looks like a "middle management" watch. you know the guy that got promoted from AM to manager at circuit city and decides to buy his first nice watch? yeah...the second one would fit that bill.
drool. Ive always loved the LV sub.
The JLC MUT Moon could have been a perfect watch if they went for any color dial other than silver. Cream like the RG version or black would have been fantastic, but white enamel would be so The silver combined with the silver hands gives me the same "middle management" vibe that people are criticizing on that two tone Longines, especially when seen in person vs in pics. JMHO.
If you guys are looking for a manual wind with similarly classical aesthetics, check out the Grand Seiko SBGW031..
super glad you have decided. almost. lol. if you like, PM me. i can probably help you out on both fronts.
dont think i could pull it off, but its a beautiful watch.
first one. not even a question.
Although the first looks much better than the second, I don't know what the hell Longines were thinking when they placed the date window right above the 6 like that.
The six should have been removed. Or, alternatively, they should have chosen to cover the date aperture. I would suggest expanding your search, personally.
Longines Heritage 1942 Chrono is a pretty damn sweet watch
Would love to hear an explanation of cut numerals, radial flips, and other obvious dial imperfections on so many watches in the market. My best guess is that they want to maintain a level of dissatisfaction in their customers in order to sell more watches in the future.
Frederique Constant makes a good watch on a budget.
I really dont know why Longines does this. Maybe its too hard to modify the stock movement?
First one without any hesitation; as others stated, I don't get the date window over the 6. Either remove the 6 or place the date window at a more usual position. Otherwise, good looking watch, that would probably look better / be more versatile in silver.
I am certain it is because they do not want to alter the stock ETA date module. I have a feeling it is probably not simple to modify. Well, economically speaking.
