Just for you, here's a crappy Blackberry shot pix.

TIA.
Your order is backwards!

And ALL watches are up for major discounts, from Audemars Piguet to Zenith.... if you're paying retail (or anything more than 70% of MRSP) you're getting ripped off.

Not entirely true. You'd be very, very hard-pressed to find discounted Pateks. And there are almost no discounts on the hottest Panerais. Although, personally, I think Panerai is an overrated watch.

Whoops, I meant that list to be a question not a statement. I figure it would be cheapest in Asia but authenticity will be a concern. And if one were to acquire the timepiece from an AD, would they offer much discount?


Anyhoo, ventured into this thread on Paneristi.com...wow, RM's are pretty nutz. 3 Crazy Watches

I agree if it's the for some company, usually a fashion label, charging a ridiculous amount of money for a watch with a generic quartz movement. But disagree if it's a 'sin' to charge $100+ for a high end quartz. Let's use Citizen as an example.

The nicer Citizens are well above $100. Their 2100 movement is partially hand assembled due to its complexity. The Citizen model, sadly not available in North America, is around the $1000 mark. While many would gasp at the price for this subtle looking Citizen, it's one of the world's most accurate quartz movement at +/- 1s per year. It's so accurate that owners notices when the atomic clock adjusts for a leap second. Lastly, Citizen's Campanola line, well above the $1000 mark, are handmade and the attention to detail and artistic quality is absolutely incredible. If you hang out on WatchZone.com, there's a collector of Campanolas, and believe it or not, who prefers them over his PPs and APs.

I was just using an exxaggerated number, but the point was I see people wear marc jacobs watches all the time, or aquamasters with tons and tons of diamonds, and I could not see my self using a watch with a quartz movement for that much money (+4 grand)

Automatic > manual-winding >>Quartz. Agreed.

However, certain style of watches lend themselves to Quartz such as ultra-slim watches.

Which watch are you?

If you had to identify with the brand image of any particular watch, which would you be?

I think I would be a Breguet.

My daily beater is a Tag Heuer 1500

My fiance just bought me an Oris Artelier Complication yesterday for my Christmas present. BTW, there is a barcode sticker on the back of the mineral glass caseback, what's a safe way to remove it. Can I just use my fingernail, or will that scratch it?



Here's the watch I really wanted




As for overpriced quartz movements...I was looking at chronograph watches, and the Cartier 21 chronograph (quartz) series were over $4k...

Campanola's are awesome. Did you know the enamel on the dial is actually hand-applied by one man... he is the only man in the world still finishing dials in this way.... incredible.

I read an article about that guy on Watchzone in some watch magazine... and since then, I've been trying to locate a cool Campanola (albeit with no luck).

There are some nice looking Campanolas. Sadly, the Japanese do not know how to brand and market themselves like companies in the Swiss/German watch industry.

You should be able to use your fingernail. Chances are its synthetic sapphire so it's pretty hard to scratch. You can probably even take a razor blade to it if you want provided it IS synth sapphire. But a fingernail and zippo fluid to get rid of the gunk should be enough.

I don't know too much about watches...so I'm looking for some opinions and advice on this one:

http://www.citizenwatch.com/COC/Engl...ber=BJ7005-59E

What do you guys have to say?

Edit: This watch is also available in an "atomic" version. I don't get how a regular quartz vs an atomic can still have a plus/minus of 15secs a month? I'm totally new to this watch thing. Educate me, or just give me advice on the Nighthawk. (The face is mineral glass not saphire, WTF?!)
