for what its worth

i went thru a watch phase, i dont care so much anymore, as I'll rather dress like a bum and an automatic just doesn't go with my attire.

anywho;

my favourite 2 watches in my box at the moment are:

Zenith ElPrimero Open



Jaegar LeCouture Chronomaster



Least favourite

Franck Muller King Conquisditor (i think thats how its spelt)

I went to J Farren, they gave me a great price which was bettered by HourGlass. Went back and the lovely lady said she couldnt match the price.

I will take you up on that offer next time, Thanks

First impressions: its big, its bright, the ticking (second hand) has a real springy sound to it, setting the time is incredibly difficult and its heavy.. very heavy

I hope mine in 38 years time looks as good as yours

You will get used to it, think is the 3 levels, screw down to keep the oystercase waterproof plus winding, date and time levels that is feeling a bit much initially but you will get used to it quick.
If you find that difficult imagine having to turn the hands through 24hrs to change a single day on mine since they didn't have a quickset feature back then. Am sure yours will look just as good in 38 years.

Nice watches! I'm quite a watch fan, think I have around 7 at the moment, 2 Breitlings, one navitimer anyone Bentley super sport, 1 Rolex Daytona 24hr, a Rado Jubilee, a Luminor Panerai Radiomir, and 2 Tags - Tag Heuer Monaco and a Grand Carerra.

Breitlings by far my favorites though. Would love to get my hands on a nice Audemars Piquet though

Looks fake..

Although after you got your sub I found myself wandering in to the Rolex store while o/seas. Price not as good as yours and only offering 5% off and can't claim anything on tax.

I showed them (converted) your price and the woman was like "o.O Oh yes good price"

me - "DUH Y U NO MATCH (at least)"

But yeh, I'm still not totally convinced on a sub anyway, the black/gold didn't really suit and you have blue/gold so I can't go that. Green would look 'interesting' to say the least. (And allen you know I'm not a fan of gold anyway and I'd rather be shot than wear diamonds on my watch). Guess I just have to go for another Gshock.

ps - I saw a couple of watches here called "Relax" had a nice looking crown as logo too. Almost bought you one.

Whens the Audemars piguet or IWC gonna be slapped onto your wrist?
