In B-more many houses are less than half a mil. In NYC, many studio apts are more than half a mil.
haha both true.
sooo....many watches i want cost many hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars. this equates to different size real estate holdings depending on your geographical location. that better?
Honestly, I just do not see the appeal with that watch, especially at that price point. For 1500, maybe. 2500 is definitely not worth it.
I like that watch, but I definitely think that it is not as good of a value as some of their other watches. The Valjoux movement is one hell of a reliable movement though. My Damasko keeps about +2 seconds a day normally. It looks to be nicely finished as well.
I'll stick with my Marine Original Roman. I'd like an Antea as well. Rather have the two of them than the chrono.
Please let me know what they say. Thanks.
Similar of course, since they are both deck watches, but the differences are also important. Just to be clear the "Dornbluth" I posted does not actually exist; it is a PhotoShop version of what the Center Seconds with the addition of power reserve might look like.
Wow, I must be living under a rock. I am surprised that the 99.1 in stainless costs $4,720 on WatchBuys and the 99.1 in rose gold costs $13,272 on Define Watches. $8,552 for the rose gold addition? I really didn't realize that the difference was so high.
I like it too, and the Valjoux is a terrific movement, but I also agree that the chronograph is not the Stowa I would want the most. Actually, without VAT, that chrono costs $1995...a bit more reasonable.
So, so one of my want watches has recently come up for sale: an Archimede Pilot Chrono. Should I do it? What say ye?
if you want it and you can afford it, YES.
Very nice, Kappelan
