maybe because I am nowhere near in the market to pick up any watches for a long time... this looks great to me. Some of the specs might bug me if I was considering it to add to the collection though...

38hour pr. Can’t believe that’s still an option these day’s.

My deep sea vintage chrono is 65hrs. My NSA is 44hrs, and these are 7-9 year old designs now.

Used around 4K I’d love to own one.
Right..?! A JLC, for that kind of money, should probably offer something more than a 2824.

I agree with the power reserve/movement comments, and think an additional strap would be appropriate. I think a newer movement would have increased the price at least 2-3K.
I’m still drawn to this, though, because of the dial, finishing, etc. I’m going to check one out in person.

That faux patina looks good. Not overdone. Light and creamy.

I used to be the anti-faux/forced patina guy but the more vintage becomes harder to obtain, and the fact modern lume doesn't seem to patina like it's radioactive counterparts, I say why the hell not?

I don't know; it used to be JLC had the best date window- now it's generic and you could argue it's in the way altogether. 38 hr power reserve on an $8200 watch...Tudor 58 gives you 70 hr..At least it's 200M...and I do like the blue...
