TIA
they are both reputable... and both represent the top of secondary market resellers in terms of expense. I have always been able to find a particular piece for less money elsewhere.

Does that mean you’ve seen it in person or are you just commenting on it in general? If you’ve seen it in person, what is the back like compared to the pics?

No, I seen a video clip of it but not in person or I might've been tempted to grab it and run . It's out of my price range,

Re: Let's Talk Watches

Got invited in for a new strap and went for a dark blue rather than replacing it with the same brown one. I have kept the original brown one in case I want to go back. I had been thinking about replacing the strap anyway so this was a nice surprise and saved £3-400!



The aftercare after buying this watch has been top quality, I would guess every other month I'm invited to various events which I assume are just there to get me to buy more but they're still nice. Even got a hand written Christmas card from the manager of the shop. Would very much recommend!

Yeah, I think I probably bought it around 18 months ago, I can't remember exactly.

I absolteuly love it too, aside from my Garmin Fenix it's the watch I wear most of the time. It probably goes through more wear and tear than other fiftysixes but it feels a shame to leave it at home.

It's great complication... I went in to look at the new Jaeger Lecoultre annual calender moon phase with jump date at 6 O clock in steel, but they only had the 18k version. These two watches look related.

That is also a very beautiful watch. When I bought this I actually looked at the JLC on the same day before deciding on this one. The functionality is very similar and I agree, they could definitely be related. I also looked at an A Lange Sohne but felt it was a little too unconventional as an every day piece.

I went for the VC in the end on what was really a gut feeling, despite the jump in price for what you rightly say is a similar looking piiece. I just looked at it and loved it. When you're buying something like this just buy something that you love.

That model is very cool. I went with the black. I can’t believe I dropped nearly 5 large on a watch though.

Agreed, very beautiful watch.

I wouldn't worry - there are far worse things to spend money on!

Thanks
My goal is to have a “real” watch to give each of my sons.
This was number two.
First was a Hamilton.

Favours were pulled in, so they wanted it to be a surprise, they knew I was interested in those two so I was told “they have something you’ll like” good enough for me.

Less than a year later, this watch sold in a matter of hours off reddit for $13,000.

Not quite the same but the SBGJ235 has similar vibes and is much more attainable:

Re: Let's Talk Watches

Finally got my first Panerai yesterday!! I must be having a weird almost 40 crisis or something because I would never have pictured myself in one of these. But I absolutely love it and can't stop looking at it. It's the 797 8 Day in Ti.

I used to have a yellow gold Day Date (a page or 2 back in this thread) and it was the strangest thing. I honestly stopped enjoying wearing it. I sold it and started really searching for something more casual that might fly under the radar of normal people, but still retain some wow factor for people who were looking. (I am a person who looks at your watch and love to chat about it.) But here you go.
