Want this one:
Check out Downtown Mike on TZ. He's in Vancouver I believe.
The Reverso Tribute 1931 has caught my eye. I have always found the standard (small) Reverso Duo to be the most elegant size, the Grande sizes, at least on my wrist, look chunky and wear too big. But I'm thinking if I can track down a Grande Reverso Tribute 1931 ultrathin, it may be the perfect reverso size. Big, but not as thick as the Grande Duo/GMT/etc.
^there was one on TZ not too long ago-not sure if it sold.
The Reverso Ultra Thin is gorgeous. I would love to get my hands on one .
As an aside, I have been timing my JLC Master Control over the last 3 days. Happy to say, that three days have passed, and it has neither gained nor lost a second. God I love this watch.
Another vintage Heuer arrived today:
Nice. I have a non-GMT bull-head Autavia (with a rotating diver's bezel). I am envious of your buckle. Is that period-true?
If you are buying new you will most likely get hit with duty, gst etc. I wouldn't be surprised if it was about 15-20%. No problems through Amazon though. If you buy used off TZ I would have it shipped via USPS priority post.
I paid customs fees on the first purchase just over 2k. It was about $100 in duty but I can't remember if the seller used a courier or USPS. My second purchase shipped through USPS registered mail was about $200 and I paid nothing.
I am still trying to figure customs out, but with other purchases, I find I have had the best luck shipping through USPS.
The buckle is unfortunately a modern reissue.
Thoughts on these 2 here guys ?
What do you guys think of this?
I like the seamaster personally
so i too am in the market for a speedmaster pro, but i'm really gun-shy since this will be my first big watch purchase. I assume cylon saw this on TZ and decided to pass, so I'm wondering why? Not the best deal I've seen but seems decent. Maybe I'd rather get a newer one for $2,400-$2,500 with box and papers but these are not coming around as often as I thought, so I tempted to pick it up.
but a 1953 watch shouldn't look so good, should it?
Curious question. Does anyone here own a watch from Roland G. Murphy, or have you ever handled one? Guy makes his own watches here in PA, wondering what level he plays on.
