Not feeling it at all, think it's the dial colour that kills it for me

yeah, hate getting things for cheap. much prefer to spend double retail on the grey market, way more internet points Cool

undecided on the Blue bay 58… a problem with the BB58 in general, is that its creeping on omega seamaster territory, which is just a far better watch in every aspect

Congrats mate looks lovely and yeah the difference in quality is astounding, but then so are the service prices with an offshore lol

Actually impressed with the levels of watches on here, never thought there would be so many non hype watches like the overseas and the offshore on here Cool

These three are the holy trinity as watch collectors would attest, Overseas is well known and appreciated by many Jords

They all yours mate? Look stunning. That royal oak isn't a 15400, 15500 or a 15202, but still looks around 40mm, what reference is it? 5402 from the 70s?

Unless you have a good indy who can service it for you, when it starts loosing time its often better to px it!

Swap back, that is a shocker. The only AP to get is the one in the above pic with the original font.

I dont see them being owned by the richemont group as an issue tbh, its not like the LVMH group.

Lange & sohne, cartier, IWC, JLC, panerai, roger dubuis also all part of the richemont group.

Got a hook up with any staff discounts?!!

I live in Switzerland and I have a few friends working for the Richemont group.

Cartier, IWC and JLC are not the watches that you can easily resell for good money (for a reason). The number of watches that are unsold and go to the staff private sale are much larger than you would expect.

This thread makes me feel poor AF. I have a BB58 and an old Rolex 6694 but could only dream of owning some of these watches.

My 15400 needs a service but I keep putting it off, mentally prepared for a shafting though.

I think the blue BB58 looks great. It's the first Tudor I've fancied since the Pelagos. Oh, and the 36mm one whatever that was.

Opinions on Black Bay steel? On sale for £1850 at EJ which seems cheaper than used
