    Great find...I need to search Timezone more often especially since I'll be in the market for the IWC in a couple months.

    Thanks a bunch guys. I will be wearing it in good health :)


    Thanks Lonneker, yeah, I thought that was an excellent deal for a watch that really does not show up very often.

    Love vintage Subs...Congrats!!!


    Can anyone recommend a good watch winder? They only brand that I know of is Orbita but they're a little out of my price range.

    I had an acrylic crystal GMT as a daily wearer for 10 years. The scuffs the crystal gets are not a big deal and they are so easy to buff off that I would not let that influence me if I wanted a vintage Rolex, but to each his own.

    Congrats on a great find! I love JLCs, so understated, so high quality, and a relative bargain compared to other high end brands! My Dad has a JLC Master Antoine thats about 7 years old and its stunning. I'm sure you will get many years of enjoyment from your watch! I'm hoping to add a JLC Reverso to my collection at some point. Congrats again on a great watch.

    Its been some time since I've seen anyone wearing a Concord, a friend of mine one of their sports models, a Marine SG in the early 1990s. I love the sort of asymetric dial layout on your Concord. I can see why it garners compliments, its a very handsome and elegant watch. Also, I'm a sucker for non-round dress watches. I have three dress watches so far and none are round. My daily wearer and sports watches are round, so in addtion to them being on a strap and rose gold, being a different shape really makes it feel like I've changed to something special. Kind of like changing from sneakers to fine pair of dress shoes.
    Sounds like you found a great deal. Thanks for sharing some cool photos with us.

    Thanks Dino for the congratulations! I certainly hope that I will enjoy this for many years to come. I was surprised just how delicate this watch is too. Although thicker than the JLC MUT, it is not as thick as the JLC MUT Moon, so it is VERY thin. And a Reverso is definitely on my bucket list. I would love that new JLC Reverso Ultra Thin. It is so lovely :).

    That's fine that it doesn't bother you - but it's something that needs to be said to someone consider an acrylic crystal watch and asks specifically about any potential issues using it as a daily beater.

    When I had my 1959 Omega Seamaster manual wind serviced last year my watchman asked if I wanted to replace the crystal with an OEM acrylic or sapphire and I chose to stay with the OEM. I feel its best to keep everything original if possible but I have had problems with scratches since I wear this watch mostly with a suit and its protected.
