    GDL - Your Longines looks very nice. I'm looking for somethings semi-dressy, but at the lower price ranges, having sold off the Rolexes and what have you.

    Would you recommend one like yours? tks

    (And nice travel outfit, too.)


    Thanks

    Yes, in this price range, I would very much recommend the Longines Master collection. This particular one is my favorite of the series but there are some time only and time/date that are also very nice.

    Just won this off ebay. I was looking for a diver...was gonna get a seiko but came across this.

    I will probably replace the strap with a NATO one.
    Supposedly NOS. Don't know anything about Tiffany's watches except they can be very expensive. I'm assuming they are a "fashion" watch like Gucci and the like. Can anyone comment on their quality?

    I was just reading about this and can't recall who made them. As I recall it was a high-end maker. What'd it set you back?

    BIN was $750 with best offer option. Went back and forth a couple times and settled on $525 shipped.

    What is the one in the center left with the brown band and subdials at 12 and 6? That salmon colored Sinn is gag inducing.

    the large faced regulateur (44mm) is a sinn 6100. top dial is Hr and bottom is Sec. (its actually a little too large for me and i might offload)

    the rightmost Sinn is Flieger II. its actually my favorite [​IMG] color is something between a rose gold to copper IRL

    I'd prefer it on a leather strap, but it's a nice looking watch. Not a brand I know anything about.

    Some watches age better than others, I like the way this one has gone.
