    i would wear that watch every day. i love it. i have tried your belief, it did not work so well in practice for me.


    my wife is super low maintenance with clothing and jewelry, so its hard to set myself up with a big purchase that way.

    best of luck with the pregnancy btw.


    :laugh:


    if only i knew, and if i wasnt married at 20.

    If I could distract you gentlemen from your grail dreams and fine timepeices.

    I'm you're prototypical broke college kid looking to buy his first watch. I don't have nearly enough money as I would like to spend on this, so I'm looking to buy http://wornandwound.com/2012/04/13/graf-zeppelin-hindenburg-lz129-ref-7060/.

    Thoughts on such a watch?

    This would probably satiate me until I save up for my grail watch (JLC Master Ultra Thin/Master Ultra Thin Moon (Can't decide)).

    Hold off - you are just buying a bridging measure that will never quite satisfy and you are using up $550 that could go towards a MUT Moonphase - about 8% of the amount needed, which is not insubstantial.

    Keep saving, don't go down the instant/transient gratification route and get yourself a watch you don't really want and will eventually outgrow.
