    Saw the blue one with the new movement at a dealer's window a few months back. It looked so gorgeous and the price was so right that I almost pulled the trigger.

    Thank you all for a warm welcome. There seem to be many new (for me) faces here, as well as some of the old friends who are still around. I look forwards to meeting you all in the virtual watch world!

    Re: Chrono search

    Look at the prices of mass-produced quality watches nowadays I think that's probably impossible. VC do it but imagine how much they would charge me! Would love to though!

    Re: Chrono search

    Thanks very much for all your suggestions.

    Having seen the pictures of some of the watches suggested, I have decided that a straight military/sport type (e.g. Sinn, IWC) is not for me; there will...

    I am looking for a mechanical chronograph watch that meets the following criteria:

    1. Smallish: say between 38-40 mm

    3. Good...

    Re: Dent watches.......heard of them?

    In my opinion, the quality is not there. Greatly overpriced beyond what one normally sees in the watch industry. Look at the blown-up detail pictures on Jura and you'll know what I mean.

    What you gentlemen have said sounds interesting. I don't mind a waiting list, as long as it is real and there's prospect of obtaining the watch in 1-2 years' time. In fact, I have far too many...

    Daytona availability

    Hi,

    I have seen many Daytonas being sold above their RRPs, despite their having been in the market for some years now. Is it really not possible to obtain a new Daytona at its list price? Are...

    That is utterly poor workmanship. I would have it sorted, definitely!

    I'd say the new co-axial with sapphire glass and date any day. For me, unless we are talking about the original moon watch, i.e. the exact design produced right after the moon...

    Does it mean that, in the original model, the recordable elapsed time is limited by the length of the spring? If so, what will happen then if the chronograph is still engaged? Or is there a...

    Re: Most disappointing watch you have owned?

    Are you sure you are not comparing it with a watch with a higher-beat movement or one with a short sub-second hand?
    No mechanical watch's second hand is perfectly smooth.
    My VC OS is fine.
