In Miami on business this week. Brought along the Speedy.
No problem! I bought it in August at the DC Pen Show. I don't think the dial is original (it may be retouched or even overhauled), but it certainly won my heart. Under flash/high light you can see a lot of scratches in the plastic crystal, but as you'll see in some of the pictures these scratches are not visible in normal light and use.
i absolutely love it. and i think that blue is perfect for the contrast to the black. that is my #1 desire watch right now.
pretty much this, its not quite invisible, but not nearly as obtrusive (though i actually like it). and as dino said, its on pretty much all the modern sport models now. i think it was conceived out of counterfeit battling more than name whorring.
that watch is serious business.
Nvm... Phone upload not working
does this watch go with anything? v neck t shirts , casual shirts, plaid shirts?
Dagger 88: Yes, teenagers.
Mer6, Loving the GO and GP - thanks for the wonderful pics.
Lovely pics, chocsosa. I like the strap you've placed on it... just the right amount of gloss, if you know what I mean.
bernoulli: that's a nice vintage Omega as well. Looks like maybe a caliber 267? I like that dial layout with the sub seconds.
There's one for sale at Darlor right now that looks to be in good condition and quite reasonable....trying to resist.
I'm wearing this one today:
Maybe I will keep it on for tomorrow, and it can be my official Preakness timer. I figure the Monaco's good for more than just auto racing
thats a great pic and a classic watch.
this one was gone as soon as it arrived. click for bigger.
That is sweet, Stitchy. What else you got on sale right now?
thanks! most of the watches we have now are out for polish/service. i know a breitling and panny should be back soon and a TT DJ, not sure what else. will post here though when they are ready.
I have no idea of the model. I bought because I liked its simplicity and the nice layout as you observed. Also, it does not seem they are all that rare in Brazil. I may buy other models if I find it.
I am not knowleadgeble about watches, but now I am curious to find out more about it. Thanks, sir.
I can't recall if I've posted this one before: If you want a sub-$5k world time watch with an in-house movement, hard to beat this Frederique Constant. FC's insistence on maintaining their quartz line hurts the brand perception, but if you don't give a shit about such things it's a solid offering.
Next, in the spirit of the gmt discussion, here's a GMT Roadster.
A bit louche, but it's a nice sports watch / travel watch alternative for me.
I saw a similar Cartier in person. I love the romans and dial color, I just don't like many of the case shapes Cartier has to offer. I mean sometimes I see them on other people and think they look great but I personally wouldn't buy any I have seen.
Now that FC, that is hot and for sub-$5K that is a great choice.
