    Glashutte Makes some awesome watches, but I have to admit I personally like JLC better. You really can't go wrong with either.

    The Glashutte Original PanoMatic Date is very cool.

    The Blancpain is beautiful. Unfortunately the day/month function is too small for my damn eyes. I stick to big or time only these days. Sucks, but saves $$$!

    Just recently looked at a ref 5513( mid 80s I believe) however it does not illuminate at all and the bezel doesn't turn at all. Wondering if perhaps that make; the bezel doesn't turn and the age of the tritium has made it not illuminate. On a side note I came across this from a reputable dealer before crying fake.

    You should also take a look at this (worth) a look - Patek - just classic.

    Leftwing37 - Vintage (Or old Rolex) is a minefield, read a little on the production numbers and you can see why. A, with the amount of watches Rolex produced B, the amount of really excellent copies (fakes) about - and in some case the two have mixed!
    Its not unusual for a watches of that age to lose its lum (its almost 30 years) or even the bezel to seize but yes in any doubt leave it out!
    Great to get a second opinion or even better Rolex authentication. Safe hunting!

    Thanks guys for the recommendations, can't decide if I should go for the MUT 39mm MP or the USA 1931 Reverso. Decisions! :(

    i honestly dislike the new villeret with the bigger roman numerals. they are a good deal tho on the second hand market. i think one can even spring for a vintage 34mm perpetual in yellow gold for just a little more on a new ss moonphase..

    I had the same dilemma--and damn it's tough.

    Have you tried them on?

    Also, I can't believe I forgot to mention the Girard Perregaux 1966 collection. It's very similar to the MUT MP.
