    Nice Jaeger Eustace - the commercial pic is cool - your pics suck [​IMG]

    +1 on both

    I'd like to see a wrist shot !

    You should also try to step a bit further away from the watch and zoom in - that will often help with focus

    Just got my new JLC Master Geographic (40mm). I am a rotten photographer and I cannot get out a good pic. These two were honestly the best of the lot (and they're pretty sad too). The third pic is a commercial pic so people can actually tell what the damn thing looks like.

    Beautiful!

    If you don't mind, could you please post more pics of the UN - a side-shot and a wrist-shot in particular would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    Sure thing.
    This watch is a b*tch to photograph though. The crystal is flat side to side but
    curved top to bottom and it's difficult not to get bad reflections.

    Thank you for the additional pics - beautiful watch.

    Also thanks to Panzer and gdl203. I will try taking some more pics, incl a wrist shot, in the morning.

    I got the Louis Vuitton Tambour when the first came out in 2002 and have since had the original brown calf strap on it...well, 5 years of wear will make it rancid and smelled horrible.
    I went into LV today to get a new one and they don't make those anymore so I would have to take the brown croc....I opted for this saffron (a bit more yellow in person) croc strap instead.
    I figure it's a fashion watch, so...

    I will probably end up buying the Rolex Tudor as posted above.
    Please let me know what you think or what opinion you have of them

    Lindeburgh and Benson is a weird company. Did you get that from Rob at watchbuys? He was selling those for $1500 or whatever and L&B was selling the same watch (as NauticFish, I think) for like $500 on ebay. That's a great startegy, undercut your one and only retailer
