  1. I'm loving the watch, not so sure about the 'dog collar' though.
  2. Nice looking watch. Be aware that it's a manual wind, i.e., you'll need to wind it every day; he says it's a "hand winding" movement. But I like that sort of thing, rather like feeding your cat or dog at a regular time every day to keep him healthy. I bought my ca. 1971 Date from an AD in late 2000. It was SS, gray dial, and came on a black leather Italian-made strap, no Rolex buckle. I've since put it on an aftermarket Jubilee bracelet, and had the dial swapped for sapphire blue at Rolex Dallas during its 2007 service. It keeps great time and is a pleasure to look at and wear. I'm not worried about its value vs. one with an authentic Rolex bracelet. It and my 1978 5513 Sub are my steady watches. So if you like the Precision, go for it!
  3. I suppose you could always go with a Submariner bezel...
  4. Great review and great watch - only issue is 5 liner text. Pelagos should have been above under the Tudor, Geneve. I don't know if Dan remembers.. but during last year's GTG.. I was telling him to become Tudor AD as it goes well with his collection of watches. Good to see Timeless carrying Tudor now.. but I already got my Black Bay :)
  5. I can afford one, without flipping one, at least if I wait my christmas bonus. Hulk and black sub don´t speak to my, but Kermit somewhat. GMT master Coke or Pepsi might still be THE one - and that GMT function is quite useful to me. Sales corner here is problematic (most sellers are from Northern America) due tax and VAT, if I buy outside European union, VAT is 24% and Euro is week now. So I have to find it within EU.
  6. Congratulations. These are fantastic watches. I wear mine all day every day and the accuracy is stunning. Mine says hello
  7. Hi, This is my first post on the forum, so I hope that I posted it the right place. Im on vacation in San Francisco, and looking to buy a IWC mark xvii. I've been to Shreve & Co, but the watch is 4,900 + tax and they won't give any price reduction. To me that sounds a bit expensive, especially because it is available for 4,000 many places. Does any of you know a good place in San Francisco to buy the mark xvii? Best, Niels
  8. Friday morning it snowed for a couple of hours: Without attaching much: The night between Friday and Saturday is snowing again: Dawn: At 10 am: This 1100 Fiat probably also saw the snowfall of 1956: Roma. Unique He shoveled snow all morning, now he's tired Here he is again ready. A true Roman, of those who have made this city: ME. Before: After:
  9. Your right Arizone , missed the hand colour , never mind should be able to find some. I have a 2 O'clock crown one with this dial so this is to go with it. Guess I'll search for type 34 cases going cheap then swap the hands over too. Thanks for the info.
  10. Mroatman, here are doubts I have about your "Sportivnie": Wrong movement as you have already mentioned. No jewel count or place of manufacture on the dial. Smudged line printing most noticable between "7" and "8". The "2" at "12" and the "2" appear to be a different size as do the "1" and "0" at "10. The appearance of possibly lumed numerals and non-lumed hands doesn't make sense. In my opinion the dial is fake and this is not a sportivnie.
  11. Shucks. I was hoping it was all original. But with doing zero homework before purchasing it I guess I can't really be disappointed at all. I think I paid more for the band anyway. So for $50 I can't complain at all. Really appreciate all the info guys.
  12. Slava dress watches have some of the most elegant design. This one is a beauty.
  13. wow! This could be a fun thread, hopefully others will post pics as well.
  14. Wellll, some would say a balanced dial and others call it boring.... but we can all agree on the back side view...

    and they are teh sex
  16. Love those photos. Thanks for sharing.
  17. Yeah most likely, the watches he posted were pure .....
  18. That's awesome, big congrats!! I was only messin with you about the suit comment, definitely a big deal!
  19. I will be starting a new job with a very nice increase and I wanted to memorialize the increase with a reasonably priced watch and wanted to see if there might be something nice in the $10k range that might get me started with the brand.
  20. As you probably saw on another thread, to the best of my knowledge that was accurate. That's one of the reasons that I didn't consider that Saxonia when I bought my PP annual calendar. But apparently that's not true, other members have had the English version for awhile. I think they're lack of popularity maybe has more to do with they're low production on this particular model. In general Lange is more scarce than Patek, Breguet, etc. And it's my impression that its easier to find langes with the off center dials (like the Lange 1) than the Saxonia annual calendar. I guess depends also on where you live and your luck.
  21. Thank you - your input is much appreciated. I don't know if it is of any valuable information but the "feel" of the watch wasn't the "wow" experience I had expected.
  22. Will ALS ever produce the 1815 up/down with a black or grey dial? Love the watch but the silver dial just won't work for me as an every day watch.The black dial on the Lange 1 is perfect but I don't care for the dial arrangement.I think the darker dial allows for more of a dress down casual look,were the whites & silvers are more dress oriented.
