    I would love to know what they want for a nautilus, as they want 9000£+ for a miligauss, which retails in the 4-4,5k£ range for a normal one.

    Nautilus aren't really that big of a case, they're 40mm? The Santos you wanted are a lot bigger than those PP.

    If you want any watch coated in PVD/DLC, you're much better off buying a grey market or used watch and paying to have it coated by a third party...there are a couple of 'boutique' DLC watch re-sellers (Bamford is one) and they are horribly marked up.

    Love those Lange pics...and I clicked my way onto the European-model Memovox Deep Sea, damn good looking, I need to start saving $10.5k:

    This is exactly the kind of thing my aunt would do, and she did.

    The AP is 39mm and the Pateks are 40-40,8mm, so they are actually small by modern standards, Hublot are 45mm and up, from what I remember.

    The Patek designs are really a like it or not kind of thing, you have to like square watches, to like them, personally I love them.

    I have never been a fan of AP's, I would rather have a Vacheron Constantin Overseas instead. It has the same movement and is better look, but for some reason I like the black AP.

    partagas- it's a great watch and you see very few of them around.
    btw those bamfords are horrible, the whole store is horrible, just tacky playthings for bored hedge fund managers.

    re: our discussion on baume mercier & other chronographs yesterday, this new Watch Snob article is both timely and relevant.

    He reaches the same conclusion as we did, though surprisingly didn't mention Longines (which I think is a great value)

    Ha, yeah, I saw that article yesterday and chuckled about how his decision essentially mirrored what we came up with. I wish that the Watch Snob was a little "kinder" on brands other than PP, AP, ALS, VC, etc. I feel like most people slightly interested in watches get their information from sites like AskMen, and they are really doing a disservice to many readers by being so tongue in cheek.

    For example, I wish that he would mention something like a Longines. At least Zenith got the nod. I also wish he would stop bringing up my JLC Master Control as a great watch for people entering the realm of higher-end watches. I would like for my watch to remain hidden from the masses.

    With that said, I do enjoy reading the Snob on occasion. If only for the contradictions and lulz.

    I wouldn't worry too much about that. He IS speaking the truth regarding your JLC MC, but inevitably your average reader is going to settle on mainstream luxury brands (rolex, omega, cartier, breitling) regardless of what anyone says.

    And remember he has to live up to the name "snob" re: AP PP ALS etc
