Congrats! Now lets see some photos of the new watch.
The USS stands for United States Steel and were given to executives when they retired from the company.
My favorite watch is the Rolex Sea Dweller Deepsea 116660
but I love my Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 17 and my Carrera Day Date as well
I have this Tommy HIlfiger on the way as a birthday treat to myself
I'd love to know what you think of my small collection which I tend to expand.
Wait, $2-3K? Where? Are you talking used?
Yes, they can be found at that price in mint condition. To avoid disappointment let me say $2-4k because it seems I was slightly lowballing the rolex....but we are close. Not promoting any of these, just giving you an idea:
I thought so, I live near Pittsburgh
strap change today
jwood: nice piece but lets see some on your wrist
not sure if this was posted, the JLC was replaced with the model pictured below, the master calendar. you would have to find the one in your pic on the used market i imagine, as it was replaced already a little while ago. i think you really cant go wrong either way. i was thisclose to buying the JLC not too long ago and its still a watch i would like to have. the blancpain that was posted is also a nice option. but if youre looking for something that would also work with jeans and casual wear i think in this case the IWC is the way to go. just my 2 cents.
full retail new on the current JLC is $10,200 in steel and $21,000 in 18K
full retail on the IWC is $12,400 in steel and $23,700 in 18K.
figure if youre thrifty and willing to buy online you can get em at 30% off and if you buy pre owned significantly less than that.
either way, best of luck and keep us posted!
Thought I'd finally stop using the iPhone for pics...
glad you did that. beautiful watch, front and back. although i am really disappointed in JLCs decision to change their folding clasp. the old one was so much nicer, heftier and had an amazing finish.
that is what I want.
Can't comment as I don't know enough to compare, but your pics definitely make a strong case!
