Re: Let's Talk Watches

Hi just rang them for you. Was told I could pay the deposit (1k) and definitely get one when released yeah. Very surprised they haven't all been allocated yet.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

that actually seems like a pretty good price for that watch. 10k for manufacture movement with hour and power reserve complication, with a nice case to boot.

Picked up one of these the other day with birthday gift certificates:



Nothing special, but I need a digital for running and the gym.

That's a REALLY nice Daytona. Super-classic.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

I know a little while ago I posted asking about selling a watch and there were some people here who said they had done a fair amount of business on tz or wus. I am actively looking to get rid of my IWC Portofino Chronograph (I want to buy that Sinn U1 I believe) and if anyone could help me w that it would be much appreciated.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

Disclaimer: I know full well this is not the type of watch that appeals to the majority of this board.

Just got in my new Stowa Antea KS. Here's the watch (with deployment clasp):



And a wrist shot:



I love the Bauhaus style and small size (35.5mm) which wears slightly larger because of the bezel width. I mean no offense by this, but what I absolutely didn't want was something like the massive, cluttered Breitling look (which I acknowledge is very popular among members here). I was looking for something simple, clean, and elegant and I think I found that here.

Sapphire crystal front and back even though the movement (Peseux 7001) is somewhat pedestrian. The finishing work dresses it up a bit (blued screws, Geneva stripes) but I'll look for something a bit more exotic next time out.

All in all a nice watch that fits my criteria from a company that seems to have developed quite the online following. My experience as a customer was very positive even though I did have to wait four months for the watch (thankfully the USD got stronger during that time). I would recommend for people looking for similar pieces.

If there's any interest I'll try and get up some pictures in better lighting. Cheers!

nice watch. the radial placement makes the "3" look weird to me though, only downside to this very classical, elegant watch.
