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.

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

That Omega Railmaster will find its way to me at some point. With Omegas not holding their value extremely well on the used market, yet the relatively small number of these - recommendations on strategy to acquire?

 

Wait until one pops up on Chrono24 for a price you like.  It'll happen, sooner or later.

So, the numbers aren't too limited - in the grand scheme of things?

 

No, not really.  I've seen much, much, much more limited come up for sale on a pretty regular basis.  There is currently a Dufour Simplicity listed.

3557 of each is a larger enough number that it wouldn't be a limited edition, for other brands.  Remember that Maurice Lacroix I bought?  I had no trouble tracking one down, and they had made about 200 (another watch that was just too thick).

My SCED035 which I don't think I ever posted but it did get recognition from a fellow watch nerd recently. It's a good understated watch and my daily wear right now.

That's understated?

Lot of online bitching about the 41mm size but I think they will sell a boatload of these bigger steel Datejusts. Including one to me. The blue sunray dial is so choice. Baton markers still a bit chunky but the larger dial helps in this regard.

Being the big Alien fan I am, I've come so close to buying one of those, several times.  Nice, man.

GMT goes off to ABC Watchwerks, tomorrow.  Movement service, plus they are putting a conservative chamfer on the lugs (and welding up, if necessary). I have been quoted 6 weeks.  We'll see.  The last time I was quoted 6 weeks, it took 8 months, and less was being done.

Story of the (watch) service industry! Really is amazing how bad both the manufacturers and independents can be. Maybe the current sales slump will help -- fewer pieces going out the door to come back for service. But they'll probably also eliminate watchmaker positions to cut costs, so who knows?

I need to get some servicing done myself. I mean, have someone else do the servicing. Yes, that too.

I'll let you know how ABC does.  I'm having a very specific late 60s chamfer cut into the lugs. If they can do that right, they can do anything.
