I got this watch, outstanding value for money.
Looks great, looks like a proper high end watch at a glance.
Its a shame the numbers aren't slightly different, can't put my finger on it but they're a bit weird.

I remember going to look at houses with my mate back in 04, 2 up 2 down for about 15k. You would be living in a complete shithole! "southbank" buts for 15k you cant expect much.

Thx Evers.

I much prefer the blued hands, it's a very classic look. Great choice on an IWC, too. I'd love a Spitfire XVI!

personally think Tag screams 90's with regard to brand perception and styling looks dated to my mind.

tag is considered a cheap brand…its like a rolex for the man who only got four numbers if you know what i mean.

and Patek Phillipe owners probably feel the same about rollies but Tags are by no means cheap and while the city boys are all over em, they've still got some of the nicest designs around.

I would personally go for the Cartier, they are beautiful watches. I tried my friends solid 18k Tank Francaise and didn't want to give him it back! The Panerai is one of my favourite watches but the big face thing is a bit over worn by celebs AND football players, and many cheaper watches have now copied that look.

My second choice would be the Bedat, but they are all v.nice watches and I just wish I had that kind of budget for a watch. I was going to buy a cheapish vintage watch but have now upgraded and I'm currently looking at the Omega Aqua Terra automatic or Railmaster and even then I'm still a bit short on the current price.

Couldn't agree with you more, but having two of them would be a little silly. Smiling

Yeah I tried on the Cartier in Mappin and Webb yesterday and it is lovely, its so heavy and the quality is just awesome - the face however is quite big and seeing as I already have a big faced watch I was maybe thinking about a smaller different one, such as the Bedat.

That's the pussy version of my chronograph Cartier. Its fucking heavy and biiiiiiiig. People always say nice watch.

All them watches are very old man looking. I think it's the gold and brown leather.
