    From what I have seen, RGM watches are generally well regarded. Their base watches all use some sort of ETA variation, but their in-house stuff is intriguing. The logo really messes their watches up for me, in my most humble of opinions.

    I don't mind redials if you know what you are getting. For that reason it might be a bit high. I wouldn't buy the rolex. Saw a 1945 Brietling today on TZ that had me drooling though. $1800.

    I completely agree. I just think that the merit of RGM watches is in the completely Made in the USA ones. I am a fan of their designs, but I think that the price is a bit steep for the ETA variations. I just haven't seen enough information about them to really think about putting down the cash for one.

    That was my first thought for a 1953 watch...and price is a little high. I'm not a fan of redials, prefer the character that patina provides.

    Here's a pic of my 1959 Omega Seamaster for comparison.

    Thank you! Yeah, the face has aged quite a bit--looks better in person. It's a great watch--has a beautiful movement.
