Re: Timeless in Texas

there's always Hoodwinkee now who's an official Omega AD... sure to be deals there :roll: I think the days of ADs and their discounts are numbered. Online and boutique-only sales are the future.

Re: Longines Heritage Military 1938

You could make a good collection from Longines Heritage reissues. I like these, but there's also the Big Eye Chrono, LLD, sector dial... all of which are remakes of older classic designs. https://www.longines.com/uploads/watch/part1/heritage_fake-L2.819.4.93.2-350x720.png https://www.longines.com/u...

That is sharp looking. It would probably wear much better at 40mm.
That would be the first reissue scaled down from the original :)

nice looking watch, but hour hand seems kinda long? :shrug:
It is fairly long but I think it looks ok. FWIW, it was like that on the original too.

That’s gorgeous. I’m amazed they didn’t modify the movement to have a date display.
Longines seems to make good choices ;)

I wonder what happened with the Swatch Group lawsuit.
No idea. It seems to have disappeared. I do know Fox news was interviewing Vortic at Wind Up this year.
Looks like it's still ongoing...

Re: Car Spotting

996TT is a great buy these days. If you can find a relatively low mile example that has had the IMS bearing issue addressed, it’s a great deal and value. No IMS issues with the 996TT actually. They are a great buy. If I could make one happen, I would. Right, Mezger engine doesn't have an IMS bearing.

I dislike any watch with skeleton hands so that's a no for me.
I'm usually of the same opinion, but that peek-a-boo hour hand that doesn't hide the hour numeral is pretty clever.

It’s in Nautilus/Royal Oak territory. It’s different and not a Genta clone.
It's $10K above Royal Oak territory.

Re: So who's buying the Odysseus?

That's pretty awful. And for nearly $30K it's time for Lange to figure out how to build a big date complication that puts the two digits in the same plane - without the need for a bar between the digits to try and hide the fact that they aren't. GO does it for a fraction of the cost. https://hodinke...

Re: Is non screw down crown a deal breaker for people?

As long as the watch has the appropriate level of water resistance then I don't care how it's implemented. There are many iconic dive watches that do not have screw-down crowns.

Not me. I think the Longines is the nicer of the two watches. I'd also feel more comfortable owning a watch from a Swatch group company than a relatively new upstart.

Re: Hodinkee Heuer Skipper - $38,888?

I'm going to sound like Mike here, but you can buy an original on a GF bracelet for a lot less than that. Nobody in their right mind would pay $38K for a Tag reissue.
