    Definitely the must have accessory of the year for Flashy Losers.
    I don't understand why they have not modified that movement either. It happens all the time with most companies. Just a few examples are AP has the 2120, 2121 one is the ultra thin with date the other is without. Rolex used to take the El Primero movement change the number of BPH and eliminate the date function in addition to several other modifications. Cartier surely could modify cal 1904 to make it more versatile and appropriate for use in other cases.

    As for the price, I agree. $6,000 is quite reasonable for a watch with an in house movement from a very established and respected watch company. Its nice to see a company release something new that isn't intended to financially rape potential buyers. I think with a few mods they could really make that watch into something great. If I were ever considering that watch, I think the large sub dial and date windows are less distracting on the steel with black dial (just my 2 cents). I would really like to see them either come out with some modified versions of cal 1904 for other models, or another in house movement (with either no second hand or a centrally mounted one). I would love to eventually see a Santos Galbee XL with an in house movement.
    +1 on the reasonable price and nice Stowa Rooster!
    I like the his & her Nautilus idea! I've only seen the 5800/A1 once, but its a great luxury sport watch for the Mrs.

    Thanks - I just think the 31mm ladies Nautilus looks a little too small for her.

    Two things this thread has done in the past week:

    1. Make me rethink Cartier and non-round dials. Square and Reverso style are A-O-K in my book now!
    2. Datejust on a strap = Sexy. I do not like them on a bracelet but throw them on some Croc and BAM! Sexy wrist candy.

    Also vintage Omega's are great but sound like a lot of headaches to find one non-hacked.

    Why not just go to the JLC store - aren't the prices the same as Tourneau?

    Stupid question but is there actually a JLC store in NYC? The other crappy thing about Tourneau was the selection sucked.
