Re: White dial Hamilton Khaki Field reissue

That's a nice price on the white dial. If I didn't already have the black dial I'd go for it.

Re: AP 15500

Thanks, all. Hanging on to 49 for a couple more months so would have to get really lucky. It’s the watch worth waiting for, for me. Will have some nice pieces to sell after that happens! I did call Chicago and Atlanta so fingers crossed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk You might want to call Veg...

Re: AP 15500

AP has reduced their dealer network in the US in favor of their own boutiques. The two dealers that were local to me no longer carry the brand, and the closest boutique is over 300 miles away. The only thing I can think of is to call the US boutiques and put your name on their waiting lists. Sorry I...

Re: IWC Tribute to 3705

I don't see the big deal. Not a big deal. It's a watch, not life or death. I just think so many other brands do a much better job than IWC when it comes to 'Tribute' or reissue models. In my opinion, IWC comes across as either lazy, arrogant, or out of touch with what collectors want. And if these ...

Re: IWC Tribute to 3705

If you can live without a ceramic case, I'd track down a nice example of the 3706. You get the real deal with the classic dial for a fraction of the price. Or, go for the new Spitfire Chronograph for $6K with the same in-house movement as the 3705 Tribute. This was the easy answer for me. The 3777-...

Unfortunately, I think they screwed up the dial. But the price is better than rumored, $11,900.

I was in the only Omega AD in town yesterday, and tried on a Seamaster 300m White ceramic dial with bracelet. I liked it! My question is about price, The AD offered a discounted price of $4440.00, is that a good price for this watch? Touch base with Rob at Topper's to see what he can do. I bought m...

I dug up a few photos of Kriger watches. I wonder if Rolex would be so aggressively pursuing the trademark issue if Kriger wasn't making Rolex/Tudor knockoffs. Yeah, lots of other microbrands do it but the use of a name like Milsub that is commonly associated with Rolex watches may have rubbed a bit...

Re: New Hodinkee Collaboration w/ IWC

They didn’t need to “ceramicize” the crowns if they wanted it to look authentic. And again the whole case should have just been ceramic for $7-8K. Also I like old school numerals better, 1, 10, 11 in particular the European way of writing number 1 https://media.fotki.com/2v2HMrgvexAqZad.jpg If that...
