    My question was 'loaded' only to the extent of trying to get some discussion here about people's favourites. If it helps, my Top 5 collection pieces (not necessarily my grail pieces) are;

    Panerai Vintage Ref 6152
    Patek Phillipe Nautilus Ref. 3700/1
    Royal Oak Jumbo A-series
    Lange & Soehne Zeitwerk Luminous
    FP Journe Octa Calendrier

    Something in here for everyone, fancy complications, vintage and sport

    A watch company founded in 1833 is a "trend" insofar as their latest lineup was released this week.

    And the fact that you feel the need to mock somebody, somewhere in a thread of over 9000 posts who mentions they like Zenith speaks more to your lack of decency than anything else.

    I can see you like the collective benefits of jumping on the bandwagon?

    OK. Your perspective is indeed profound and has proved nothing but the very fact that you are group-think sheeple material.

    $13,000? Maybe you mean GBP and not USD. The absolute lowest I've seen is slightly north of $18k w/o box or papers.

    You're right. It is suspiciously low price for that watch

    There is only one available at that price from a private seller on Chrono24:

    http://www.chrono24.com/en/alangesoehne/lange-1--id1898293.htm

    You guys are right the price is low. I too would be slightly hesitant of pulling the trigger on that particular one. The rest are available around ~$17-18k and up.

    I would just take his statement more generally though. Like I said, you could take 13k and obtain a few solid watches, or throw it all at one really good watch like an PP, VC, or ALS (I think a Saxonia could be had for that price).

    The larger point that got lost in all the ridiculous tangents above was that I personally would not pay 13k for some ambigious richemont watch with the RL name on it when there are much, much better alternatives out there

    I always say if you looking for a watch do it among watch brands :)

    Yes...I'm pretty disappointed with the re-design, especially the triple date window and the red accents.

    I do like the look of the new Spitfire Chrono with raised numbers. All Pics from SIHH and on the WUS website. SIHH Pics on WUS.

    I think you just did. If someone is mocking a brand, then it's helpful to know where he's coming from. Now you know. Just to be clear: my post was not meant to support his view. That GP is far from an attractive watch.



    I think you missed my point; see above.
