Beauty, is that 112?
Any 'cheap' (~$2000 used or grey market, whateva) but ubiquitous watches that one should keep on their radar? My wife asked me what I wanted for my 30th birthday coming up and I'd really like her to get me a watch, because it's one of those things you can hold onto... but I don't want her to spend much money. I might buy myself a more expensive watch later but well after, so that it won't overshadow a birthday watch she gets me. What I'd like her to get me is something classic and guaranteed to stand the test of time pretty much. While I'd like a Calatrava or something, it's gotta be affordable because we have other stuff we need to buy soon.
I already have a Sinn to wear daily and a JLC master ultrathin as dress watch, so something in between, can lean either way as long as it's a bona fide classic (high value/performance obscure brands like Sinn, et al are out)
good suggestion, that was what I was leaning to and I'd mentioned it to her a couple times recently as well as I've seen them going for like 89,000 yen here.
very nice. ive been tossing the idea of getting a new watch recently...between an oysterquartz and a speedy pro. Love the vintage look of that though
Not at all. This particular Oysterquartz from 1979 year
Thanks. I love both of them, but speedy is mechanic oyster is quartz, depends on your preferences.
"~$2000 used or grey market" - personally for me it could be Rolex vintage (datejust, airking) Speedy (as was mentioned above), Seamaster Pro (blue), Breitling Colt, Longines Legend Diver
Thanks... Yep, PAM112
+1, that's what i went for in a similar situation, and have never regretted it.
Seamaster? If your Sinn is a pilot then a diver would be a good choice for some variation.
Hard to find 90% or better under 2k.
The price of the Speedy went up (even in the used market) Couple years ago I could easily bought a 3570 for around $1,500-1,800. Right now, almost every listing I see is going for around 2k+.
I bought my 3572 from this guy for around $1,800. He is one of the big 3 Speedy seller on eBay. Now almost every 3572 I see is going for $2,500+...
trying on a new strap on the 000
Well, I wasn't in love with the Portuguese Perpetual after seeing it in person. I decided to go with something I've wanted for a while, even if a bit far afield from what I was considering/similar to what I already have. What could it be?
