    Want a nice gen cheap!

    They had a C60 trident pro GMT 600 with an ETA 2893 half off in Jan that I bought - and honestly? It's a great watch! Extremely high bang for the buck - excellent build quality and materials. The only nit noid I have is that the stainless band uses friction pins and not screw pins like my Rolex - but I doubt I'll ever have an issue with it

    Dealing with Phong

    This guy, Charles Ginault, obviously would have great insight into a project such as this. His website doesn't appear to have been updated since circa 2011. Is he still around? Do he lurk on these pages? He went through a big effort to create what looks like a well built 16610 homage - is he aware of how much he could make just by selling correct "homage" cases? How close to the original is the "base module 1" watch he sells for $775? Great find - thanks posting...makes me wonder how many other similar efforts are already out there waiting to be found...you'd think that all the other WUS's would at least be lurking...

    GMT BLNR 3186 vs others. At ISWSS

    Never heard of these guys - kinda sketchy since they probably rely on people fat-fingering "Swiss" for the address. Not worth losing $$ over if it's [emoji90] or never shows up.
  6. Quote from an article on the owners: "They spent a year sweating over bevel shapes, a quarter of a millimeter, agonized over – Every – Single – Detail – of the dial. “It took us a year to make this; from inception to production. Everything on this watch is purposeful. Every last f*cking dot was done on purpose.”" https://theoandharris.com/behind-the-license-plate-tempus-machina/

    Thank you for updating - it can be frustrating when reading a thread with a good question that then fizzles out over time with no resolution

    Tudor Heritage Black Bay in Bronze

    This description states that it's 316F stainless steel - is that a typo or is this bronze PVD?

    Nice, what does a good one go for?

    Is this over the top, or am I just grumpy???

    And for me it's easier to look through a list than fumbling through all the dealer websites to see what's new...

    Anyone get this message from intime.co?

    Ugh - these guys have to also worry about supposed legit card processing companies too? Hopefully this rarely happens

    QC pics, anything I should be worried about?? 116600

    Yes, ask for it - the engraved crown can be misaligned above the noon position, and that's a dead giveaway that it's not gen...in your pic it looks good but need to verify
