    those Carreras are sweet! What do they go for, if you don't mind me asking?

    Full disclosure - The black with white subdial carrera is not mine, I pulled it from an excellent article by the late, great Chuck Maddox. This article was what first got me bitten by the watch bug and especially the designs that were so prevalent in the 1960's: http://chronomaddox.com/heuer/articl...a_article.html

    I used to monitor eBay quite a bit for vintage carreras and the prices vary wildly as do the levels of intact authenticity. Costs are between 2-4k I would say, but that specific dial and color configuration I have only seen once. The one thing that has kept me from pulling the trigger is the 35-36mm dial size. I know I need at least a 39 for my wrist.

    I was just answering your question about whether it's a legitimate IWC movement. I have no idea what its value is.

    Gotcha. I prolly wasn't clear. I was just wondering if it was IWC's own movement as opposed to Unitas, etc.

    But I do appreciate teh response!

    ADVICE NEEDED:

    Does anyone know about these things? Its a vintage--circa ???????????? (pls share!!) IWC Pocket watch in Rose gold. Looks like a million bux but would anyone have an idea of actual value??


    I would use it as a desk clock...... its WOW in person, I just don't know much about these bad boys.

    Can anyone tell if its IWC proprietary movement?


    You'll kick yourself if you let that go.

    Unless you drive a lambo or are a rap artist or are expecting the terminator style apocalypse I guess this would be a directionally correct statement. Otherwise you have have little to no taste.

    Why are you so miserable?

    As I hope I made clear--that is most certainly an IWC movement and not a Unitas.

    Thanks!

    I've been drooling over this watch for the past year now. I'm glad I was finally able to get it.

    This year, I'll be drooling over this one [​IMG]

    Nice 45 mm?
    I agree that their current offerings are really atrocious, but the stuff from the 60's, for my tastes at least, are really excellent. [/IMG]
    I agree... Navitimer is the wildcard watch on my list. [​IMG]

    Is there a rule for watches when you have slim wrists/forearms? Like every watch i try on that i think looks decent in the case just looks ginormous when i actually try it on... blargh I mean color/style/size in general... anything along those lines that can make a watch appear to not be as big on a person if they're skinnier :p

    45 mm?[/IMG]


    42mm only.

    A 45mm watch would look massive on my small wrist [​IMG]

    Thinking of picking these up also: Bernhardt Globemaster (perfect when I travel, for multiple timezones): [​IMG] I also like this one, because I'm a big fan of Seikos: Seiko Spirit [​IMG] myke
