Been after one of these for a while. Going in tomorrow to haggle. Wish me luck!  

Yeah, I also like that one a lot. Not quite up to your guys levels, but my wife got me this for Christmas...  

Prematurely touted a Lange once before but hope this one won't get away. Have been looking for a year or so, they are like hens' teeth.

Well my Breitling Emergency started having a flashing screen last week (low battery) so ordered the correct battery and tried to do a battery replacement like I had done before. As I was opening the case my hand slipped and the watch and movement slid across the desk. Now it's totally dead though I can't see any physical damage or anything physically wrong. It just will not respond. 


This is going to cost a fortune with Breitling service USA. The only place I've ever wasted more money in a split-second is in a car. :palm:

I don't expect anyone to understand :)

I'm with Reks, I don't see what there is to not understand.  Looks like a very nice watch to me.

Chris, sorry to hear about the issue and here's to hoping it doesn't break the bank.

I'd enjoy owning the Grand Seiko too. They're well made, and respected by those in the know.

I recently pre-ordered a Nomos Glashutte Orion Midnight Limited Edition.  And I have an older Seamaster Pro Bond Quartz shipping to me on Monday, just like the one I bought my son for his 18th birthday in 3 weeks so we can match (and yes, both from 1998 when my son was born - go ahead, make fun of me but I got a great deal on both).

I'm considering switching the Nomos limited ed to an automatic Club Datum Dunkel.  What say you?

Decided to contact one of the Breitling Approved service centers to see if they'd be willing to take a look. Part of the reason I'm sure it will be a fortune from Breitling is they basically re-condition the watch and it's in need of a lot of that. I don't want any of that done (except for maybe a few spring pins replaced). Emailed Breitling and asked them to cancel the service request and will follow up with a call once they open. I really don't necessarily care if the watch isn't working but it would be nice to get it fixed.

Nice gift Reks.  

So the guy who hated iPhones, now has an iPhone and Apple Watch.  Since getting the watch, I have not worn any of my other watches (about a month).  I am thinking of letting my Bremont Solo go, which is the only one that has any real value.  If anyone is interested let me know.

Extended Christmas best Christmas.

There was a minor flurry of last-minute watch buying and selling here too. Resulting in a decent deal on a Lange Saxonia manual.

Very clean and classic from ze Chermans, I think.

Nice. That beats my NOMOS ORION when it comes to German watches.  Still, I can't wait for it to get here.

In the meantime, I can't seem to peel the Grey Side of the Moon off my arm lately.  I love it on the Dark Side strap now, making it a little more casual and sporty to suit my style better.
