I've put in two complaints, they've asked me for patience while they investigate. According to the tracking, it's supposed to be in a logistics center in my city, so I hope the marine chronometer finally appears. It is the first package I lose, after hundreds of purchases and shipments.

If it doesn't appear, it's bought on ebay and paid via Paypal, I don't think there will be any problems.

Decided to act on a deal I posted.

I don't have any watch like this.

Now, if only I can figure out how to work this thing!

By a great stroke of luck, I stumbled upon this beauty last night while browsing Ebay. A 1960's Universal Geneve with a beautiful gold linen dial and an incredibly thin in-house hand-wind movement, bringing the watch's total thickness to just under six millimeters. The price rang in at $360, including the genuine crocodile strap. Needless to say, I'm very pleased.

Edit: An interesting story has already arisen! When I initially saw this watch, I recognized it from an Urban Gentry video. It turns out that was for good reason: it was being sold by none other than TGV! It's a small world, if you'll indulge the cliché.

I just made my first watch purchase in about two months- I bought a Seiko SBDC063 dive watch. It will be replacing my Steinhart Ocean One GMT. So that watch is for sale if there's any interest.

From a suggestion from quincas, going to try out this Xeric moonphase.
Been on the hunt for one with a larger moon, will see if this fits the bill.
My only concern is that it is 44mm, so larger watch = larger moon?

Image


Just a tip for anyone buying off Watches.com, they have a "MAKE OFFER" feature which you can submit a price and either get accepted, declined, or counteroffered.

For instance, the sale price on the Xeric was $199, I made an offer for $149, and accepted their counter of $161.
I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

I bought one of these because I love the design. Then I sold it because it was too big for me. Then I bought another one because I convinced myself I could pull it off. Then I sold it again. Good thing I bought them both used. Awesome watch. Awesome watch.

I bought it for cheap from discountshop and if I love it I’ll sell a couple to fund it. I need to start selling soon, but I have so many keepers I really can’t think of any to let go of.
