    I don't think that Lee Michaels every carried JLC--I know that Adler's did, but they also stopped carrying 'em. From what I have heard, JLC has completely pulled out of Louisiana--the closest place to go now is Tejas.

    And Cyclon, if I ever find myself up there, I will definitely let you know. And the Speedy Pro would be a great decision. Plus, you need a watch that can withstand the rigors of have a child now!

    Oh, before I forget, I've decided to sell all my watches. Figured I'd let you guys know before I put them up in B&S. If you know anyone who's interested in these please let me know:

    IWC Portuguese Chrono panda dial (black with white subdials)
    Oris Miles Davis Complication
    Stowa Marine Original Roman - white face
    Max Bill Chronoscope - white face

    actually you're right, it was Adler that used to carry JLC.

    Not only that, but on their website they still list themselves as stockists of JLC! I walked into their NOLA store, and was woefully surprised. They have also stopped stocking IWC, FWIW.

    wow that is insane. I was there a few months ago when my friend bought his IWC Aquatimer. I haven't been in that store in awhile tho. I was planning on stopping by tomorrow to check out some Cartier.

    So my normal local watch strap store has been sucky with breitling replacement straps lately. Any recs for decent priced breitling straps in NYC? They don't have to be OEM.

    i noticed the omega speedy is 18 jewels. Does the second hand sweep jittery or is it smooth?

    I need to buy a watch soon.

    The jewel count has nothing to do with the smoothness of the second hand, bph is the primary reason for a smoother hand.

    If I am interpreting your Q correctly, I'd say an Omega Speedmaster Professional servicing would cost you somewhere in the ~$300-400 range--probably more from Omega. Hope that answers your Q

    I thought service to any chronograph would cost double that ~ 6-8 bills and oem service would be north of a g; here's what I'm sporting today: [​IMG] sorry for the crappy pic again...the lighting in my office is harsh
