Re: Let's Talk Watches

Who on earth do they expect to buy it? Does anyone with the money to buy one and enough knowledge of watches to want a tourbillon have taste that awful?

The target market seems like it has to be about a half dozen hugely popular death metal musicians from Sweden.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

Skull hand is hours sword is minutes I assume, the ticker on the left would actually be a kinda neat power reserve indicator but no idea what they do.

I assume the target market is guys with tons of money that still wear a lot of Ed Hardy.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

It's a regulateur style watch and the left is PR and the right is a trust index is my guess.

EDIT: Just looked, it even says it on the dial.

older post (2009) but probably in the ballpark

This 46mm wrist watch is probably not for everyone, since its price was approx 22.000 Euro (list), and 32.000 Euro for the gold version.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

Its not the same version, just look at the numbers font or the drawings near the moonphase. And the arrows are narrowed to the center. Its called Edition Antoine de Saint Exupéry.
Also the movement is 51614 instead of 51612

Damn. The Portofino is probably my least favorite of the IWC watches, but that is a pretty nice looking one.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

Thinking about buying this watch

http://www.seiyajapan.com/product/S-...tail-Time.html

Has anyone bought from seiya before, is it a reputable site?

No, not a level. I like IWC as a brand, and I would even consider buying a couple of the models I have seen. (Earlier in thread I commented about the awesome aquatimer)

Just seems that on this forum there is a disproportionate amount of love for IWC relative to other manufacturers.

Re: Let's Talk Watches

Still not really sure why the Portuguese got sooooo huge specifically among poker players, that might be why these threads/we have the lingering love for IWC though, I feel like I read lil phrases on watch blogs all the time how IWC is an under appreciated manufacturer but you definitely wouldn't ever think that from 2p2 watch threads.

klior, seiya is a reputable dealer, a few people on here picked stuff up from them.

At the considerable risk of provoking Gamblor's righteous indignation and intarweb fury, I will tell you that Seiya-san is super-reputable.
