    I'm sorry, I want to tell the time, not find Atlantis.

    I was just thinking about something that wasn't too understated [​IMG]

    I think there is a place in a gentleman's wardrobe for both understated watches and interesting watches. Such cannot be said for shirts, for they are vulgar if they are too interesting.

    (Roy @ May 15 2005,16:00) How about something like this: I'm not talking about the brand itself, but a similar type of watch. I think Zenith also has something like this.

    I like the Omega de Ville series, they're pretty dressy without looking 'old'.

    They're also not over the top as the watch i've posted above.

    Christiaan van der Klaaw is very nice. Much like Parminigani Fleurier. I am also fond of the 19th century Urban/Jules Jurgensen watches from Copehagen. To find Atlantis one needs the Caliber 89 perhaps. [​IMG]

    I love Parmigiani Fleurier, but it's pretty damn expensive.

    Can't find Atlantis, but it's nice nonetheless: (I like either Mono-push chronographs, or Rattrapants which utilize at least 3 buttons...) [​IMG] Jon.

    Is that some kind of abridged Roadster, or is that the Tortue? I really like the roadster chrono, but for now the Oris fills that position until I can justify spending that much on a casual watch.

    I do not believe this based on the Roadster; it is a tourneau shaped watch which Cartier had done rather early on. This has some type of tourbullion added.

    I really like that Cartier watch. Is it still being made? How much would she cost?

    Must be a modified Tortue then. Cartier is famous for its Tortue and for its Tank.

    It's a Tortue with a tourbillon and mono-push chronograph.

    I'm guessing at least 40-50k...I haven't the slightest idea other than its way more than I'm willing to pay.

    You're way off base; it's more like $110K (probably even more than that).

    Jon.

    (its out of my budget too I'm afraid...)
