    no offense but there are plenty of movements out there besides dornbluth that are beautiful as well. many imo are far more beautiful and complex. here are some. i could list more but i think this will convey my opinion well enough.

    In no way am I saying that Dornblueth's movements compare to Lange's, GO's, or AP's--but at the five thousand dollar price point, I think that they have the best decorated movements. Sorry if my original post was unclear. And for some additional pr0n:

    that makes a lot more sense, but there are some JLCs, IWCs, and others right in that range, maybe a tad higher that have beautiful movements as well. but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    again, no offene meant. :)

    That's a fantastic looking watch, Hoff. I'd like to own a 1950s or 60s Longines in gold. Here's my modest contribution for now.[​IMG]


    man, I in love with your Omega!!

    Oh I understand! No offense taken. I think the Watch P0rn threak could always use more discussion. Yeah, DB's definitely aren't finished as well as many of the other 'higher tiered' brands, but I think for the pricepoint they are very nicely finished. I definitely agree with JLC, but I find IWC's movements to be a tad... uninspiring, save for their upper echelon that actually does use in-house movements. And that is very true, beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder.

    +1. The GO PML is my current grail. I am so tempted to try to snatch that watch on the grey market.

    glad non was taken, and for the most part i agree with you on the IWCs. their lower level watches do have a simpler looking movement.


    i posted this a while ago. but since you mention grail, even tho i have more grail watches than i could count, i still have a serious hard on for this guy.

    Man that is one wonderful looking watch! That is the one tough part about watches I think. At least with shoes you can really get anything that you want with a little saving. With watches there just isn't enough time to save enough income!

    Speaking of Stowa, I love these 1938 Chronos but with the Valjoux 7753 are they worth $2500 US?
