    thanks! :laugh: i do polish them a little bit these days, after a dozen wears or so.
    its gotta be IWC behind it, and its shameful and lame. makes me not want to buy their watches.

    I got a JLC Master Control and round 2 was a Rolex DJ....they only thing I changed was caring if people knew it was expensive or something like that.

    Well the pickup was as smooth as can be. A nice clubhouse lunch, a round of golf on a perfect afternoon right alongside the Niagara river. And a cool new watch to take home. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It will have to be crappy cell phone pics until Monday - I'm taking the rest of the week off, and my camera is at the office.

    Stitchy - lookin' real good bro. I just love the red accents on that piece.

    Possibly; I have strong opinions on the subject!

    Unfortunately, they led it to believe that I would be compelled to buy some kind of ETA-movement IWC, which is ample enough evidence for me that the test is deeply flawed.

    Tried it twice, with very opposite answers. Got IWC first, then Rolex.

    Picked up my new watch yesterday.

    Ta ta! It's a JLC Master Ultra Thin Moon 39. I wish I had time to write about my reasoning and my impressions, but that will have to wait. Couldn't not post pics though. Still in holiday mode, but the watch can be worn with shorts, I promise :lol:

    I am too rough on watches to have a dress watch but that JLC is beautiful! I bet if that test looked at your lifestyle I would end up with some ugly G-Shock or another watch I wear a ton, my Garmin 305 for trail running...
