but such watches best is send back to AD to service.

My wife royal oak sent to a shop at lucky plaza for full service + polish - they polished down the bezel , didn't really fix the watch (was running slow), likely didn't install the gasket properly ended up inside face started to tarnish after a few years, ... haizz.

expensive lesson learnt.

Now at AP to replace the parts, get new bezel, get new faceplate, full overhaul, etc.. $5k damage.

that's ok what 1.3k
rolex 3 hander alos 900-1k

AP polishing go back AP

Price is crazy but tourbillion is definitely costly to manufacture as well. Will rather spend the 12k usd on a Sub IMO. :s22:

Preowned Nomos or Preowned Grand Seiko for a dress watch? Or other brands? Around a 4k budget.

to be honest, I am more towards GS but the price :s22::s22::s22::s22:

Can consider Cartier. Quite dressy as well.

I had a Nomos briefly - something to take note is that the lugs are extremely, extremely long, so there is a potential for a large gap which may not be to everyone's liking..

See example taken from Internet here:

The Grand Seikos in that price range are going to be too thick for use as a dress watch. If you can up your budget a bit more go for a used Rolex OP.

Like what @yukirin92 said GS at that price itís too thick (automatic). Unless you want a 9F quartz. Less than 4k can get 9F quartz.

you should try out SBGW231 if you haven't. slimmer due to it being manual-winding.

Yes looking at the 3 hands one and also the basic time and date automatic series. Did consider the SBGW231 but the lack of PR indicator is a turn off.

I actually dont mind getting a preowned automatic 3 hand GS SBGR261.

https://i.ibb.co/3dCysdM/Blue-Timascus-683x1024.jpg

The Ti-Damascus is really nice.. really a grail watch for both maker and buyers. But I cringed at the "personally torched by Elshan" part. Reminds me of "Dear Leader Kim" antics somewhere in North Asia hahaha..

Interesting to see such "halo" releases, versus the endless limited edition collabs by Undone.

You are right, there is no resale value in this compared to mass market watches. But the target audience and super-fans are not likely to offload this. Hope someone posts a wristshot of this.

My advice, dont waste time and money.. Wait you see the servicing cost above $1k. Dunno to cry or to laugh.

Get Tag Heuer tourbillion instead.

Hi gentlemen, any opinion on steinhart watches?

I was searching for a similar watch to the ever rose yatch master.

Noticed that the model "one pink gold ceramic" looks pretty similar.

Don't rlly hear much of steinhart.
Any comments to share?

they do decent homages of Rolex models. I have an Ocean 44 myself. I would say it's good value for money if you don't mind a "Rolex" with a ETA movement.

If u are a homage fan, then they are a pretty good option in terms of value, quality and level of homage.

I have 2 pair of elite series. Good quality rubber with vivid color and soft. Best thing is they give two strap length, so you can choose to use the long or short one depending on your wrist size and preference. Value for money.

Try before you buy. 42mm diameter and very long, very straight lugs make the lugs stick out in many cases.

Their best pieces are their homages, if you are into that sort of thing. Their original designs leave something to be desired...

Thanks for the feedback. There's no short options,only Standard and Long. Are you referring to standard instead?

if one doesn't mind the hommage its actually quite nice and value for money.

Kyo_kusanagi86 10-06-2020 08:46 PM

haha, the budget Hulk is now available.....question is worth paying full retail for this? or wait for preowned/ market market (Around $500-$700) :o

bwaysaikryptonite 10-06-2020 08:54 PM

will lolex hulk price now drop abit since many will notch wan to be associated wif such lookalikes ?

Yes, standard length. But they send both length in the package to me.

You may want to wait till they have promotion (usually 15% for 3 pair iiirc). Subscribe to their newsletter.
