Massdrop has made a lot money from all the Sennheiser headphones drop that they now sell all kinds of expensive stuff.

I would strongly advise those considering this deal to look up some of Massdrop's less-than-stellar history.

MD used to be decent, now they're bad.

Gemnation had this watch for the same price recently.

These Ralph Lauren watches are great deals. I bought the platinum Piaget model. It's stunning.

Not to thread crap, but if you are a true watch collector, save the money for an omega or something else. Paying so much for a eta moment watch with a clothing designer's name in it doesn't seem worth your hard earned money.

Edit: thanks for those who pointed out this is a JLC moment. In my humble opinion, i still think you are better off to purchase a used Omega, Rolex, Reverso, Cartier or PAN, what's often called holy grail of watches, from a reputable reseller than this one. Then again, if you just like the watch for the look of it and don't care about resale, life is too short, just go for it.Smilie

Just to be clear this watch does not have an ETA movement, it's an RL 939 movement which is designed and built for Ralph Lauren by Jaeger-LeCoultre.

Actually, this is probably the cheapest way to get a JLC in house movement on your wrist. More info below.

I agree with most of the above: If you like the way this watch looks and don't really care about resale (which is questionable even with name-brand watches), then go ahead and buy it. The movement being made by JLC is a nice bonus.
If you're thinking about investment (and resale), then do yourself a favor - don't buy a watch. Invest in something else.

I wish I had snagged up the Platinum model, but they seemed to have been sold out. I got the smaller square white gold one and it's a damn stunning watch for $1800

I agree. High end movements are overrated. Just get an Omega or zenith at this price point

Didn't know RL made high-end watches!
Only ever seen their watched in Macy's (and those sort of stores) for under $300
