    You mean that the crystal broke? I thought acrylic, unlike sapphire, was supposed to be shatter proof.

    Nah, the movement broke :| The watch sits on my shelf. Broken and wristless.

    I bought from the AD with a friend that is a good client of the AD...ie $30K+ watches/year for the past 4-5 years. He basically was buying the watch, and at the last second put in my info on the warranty/registration etc. The AD gave a 28% discount on the NIB PAM 112k. I am sure others have done even better/worse. YMMV.

    Regards.

    I'd argue that very few people could do better than that on a PAM from an AD

    There are many sites dedicated to specific brands. watchnet is also good for BNIB watches (not traded on TZ SC)

    Nice shot - I like the contrast of dress watch and casual shirt

    I like that.

    What are the IWCs that have the day and the date? I want to buy one.
