Your watch much be a different model because this one is a 42mm watch.


I bought the same watch (from Ashford), albeit on a stainless bracelet, for $50 more (which was offset by a $50 credit from AmEx at the time) and couldn't be happier with it. I have grown fond enough of the watch to wear it about 50% of the time (and I have about 20 or so to choose from, so that says a lot). It's a really nice watch for the money and comes equipped with a modified Valjoux 7750 workhorse (the "in-house" H-21 caliber movement) for an impressive 60hr power reserve (my example has proven to be a little longer than that, but that might just be the luck of the draw). I do tend to use the chronograph somewhat frequently, which really eats up the reserve though (which is typical, and isn't much of a problem as long as you don't forget to reset it or use it right before removing the watch). The only thing that I somewhat dislike is the weird exhibition caseback...I would have preferred a standard solid crystal back rather than the chopped up "turbine" back they chose...but I typically keep it rightside out, so it's not a big deal.


FWIW, JacobTime [jacobtime.com] has this model for less than $92 more (free ship for all and is ShopRunner eligible) if you want the bracelet instead of the leather strap.

I bought this watch -- at least a *very* similar version of it about 7 years ago for about $1,200. I like the big face (45mm) and I do get compliments from people about it, which is nice. The leather will feel real stiff when you get it, but once you break it in you'll be good. Expect to replace the leather, though, as it will wear down if you wear it daily like I did. Dished out $91 for that ...

Honest question: how much of a cut does slickdeals get for all the watch "deals" that are posted? I find it very fishy...but I guess there are probably people who collect watches like others collect sneakers.

I know, making it on FP is sometimes questionable and I have been warned twice by a mod for posting a good deal IMHO, all I said to myself was WTF. It's all about commission but we have to understand that SD has to maintain the website as well etc.

Really tempted, is that the normal price at Jacobtime? How big does it feel in comparison to a Submariner, Seamaster, or Planet Ocean (those are the only common ones I can think of that I am familiar with the sizing). The spec'ed dial size and thickness are the same as a Planet Ocean which feels just slightly too chunky on me.

look at the stitching compared to the watch. if you don't see an obvious quality difference, then you may want to consider giving up on watches.

I don't get all the people that get bent about high end watches being posted on here. This is a deals site and like it or not, this is a good deal for this particular watch. Nobody is forcing you to buy it.

People like watches like people like shoes. If I could afford a few more nice watches I would buy them. Some good deals get posted here on high end watches like Omega. Slickdeals is mainstream now, people from all walks of life come here.

I have to say, this is one of the nicer watches I've seen on SD. Usually a lot of the watches that go on sale are pretty tacky. The only one reservation I have is the thickness which is 16mm. That's pretty thick for a 42mm watch.

A good watch will last for generations. Sneakers start smelling in a month and go out of style shortly after.
