warren, those GPs are lovely.
"Daniel wellington watch" reached to USA from Sweden . What is the future of Aqua Master Watches & Joe rodeo watches ?
Absolutely, I stalk and admire the watches that cost more than cars.
took the words right outta my mouth Stitch!
meh, small potatoes. i admire the ones that cost more than my house.
I think people have to remember the price of the Platinum Daytona relative to a Platinum Datograph or Patek is due to the sheer volume of platinum you get with a Daytona and the difficulty in working with it. With the Lange and Patek there is less Platinum, but far more hand workmanship. I've heard amounts varying from 5-10 tons of ore are required to produce 1 ounce of pure Platinum. In addition, Also as for comparing it to gold, gold is relatively soft and very easy to work with compared to platinum...so what it takes to make a gold case or bracelet is far less labor intensive than to make them from platinum.
Gold is significantly easier to work with.
Spot on explanation!
That acronym is freakin hilarious! I wonder what the mods would say if they realized what the acronym is for the current name of this thread?
That being said...there is probably never a bad day if you're in ....The Watch Appreciation Thread.
thanks, and right back atcha.
I find that posting actual pictures engenders more discussion. Here is the Tudor Chrono Heritage that I mentioned earlier. I am really digging it. Not a big fan of the Black Bay, the snowflake (lollipop?) hands ruin it for me. The Heritage on the other hand
Edit: I am having a hard time finding the blue vintage Heuer that I was thinking of earlier (it isnt the Monaco). However, I do think this one which I randomly found on the internet is beautiful. I hope it isnt fake.
thanks for the pics, those are pretty cool. surprised that you like such colorful fun watches though, makes me happy.
I am a sucker for blue. Not that ugly baby blue that was on the Rolex day-date but man blue. 90% of my suits are blue, my Dorny has a blue face etc.
[first ever double post]
blue is a great color. including the ice blue day-date.
I kind of like this blue dial:
No, scratch that. I absolutely love this blue dial.
I have heard about how difficult platinum is to work with - so much so that it's not just raw materials that need to be "thrown away" but also the instruments with which watchmakers work.
So I appreciate, say, the kind of workmanship that went into making this lovely beauty, which I wore last Sunday. And today.
Seems like such a shame to render this one a safe queen, after all that hard work that went into crafting its platinum case, etc.
I knew you were joking!
