@mwilson:  gorgeous Glashutte...

 

 

My last "significant" purchase of 2011 (besides amp tubes):

 

CEE TEE?  CT = Cocktail Time  Seiko SARB065

Like Wayne's World...when I saw it- I said, "I will have it."  "Oh yes, it will be mine!"

 

The deployment strap actually points in the opposite direction...so you present a "clean band" to the outside world.

 

The slight tint to the face (bluish-lavender) is what does it for me.

 

Slightly cool. wink.gif

I like the sunburst pattern of the dial on your Seiko. 

 

My watch you're referring to isn't a Glasgutte (I assume you refer to the brand Glashutte Original). While it's made in the eponymous town with respect to GO, it's made by A. Lange & Soehne, a different company.

Sorry, @mwilson...a friend once told me the story about Glashutte Original and yours is definitely one of the best timepieces and A. Lange & Soehne.

 

I just had to say something quickly about your piece (nice photos as well), but got on to post a couple pics of a lesser score!

I like Glashutte Original as well; in fact I appreciate Saxon watchmaking as a whole. I also genuinely liked your Seiko, and I had a couple myself. I hope I didn't come across as anything other than pointing out the difference between the place (Glashutte) and the watchmaker. There was nothing else to it.

^Nope, you were quite right to correct me...one of my friends would have told me the whole history again and the correct maker is very important!

You look like a young man, looking at your hands wink_face.gif Nice watch none the less.

 

Edit: Ive found come great rubber straps here, and are pretty much made from the same materials as a Homo Sapiens! Im now looking into trading my Movado for a Rolexbiggrin.gif

I really want your (Rolex?) with the rubber strap!!!! Tell you the truth i forgot the watch, so right after im done typing this, im going to go stalk it some more and look at it. My grandma have a me a new $1000+ Movado that she won at the casino, and i know its from her but i kinda rather have one with a rubber strap bigsmile_face.gif

No problem, @music_man!  And, glad my wrists don't look almost 40...bigsmile_face.gif

wow, thanks! i am quite a bit older than 40 lol. i guess my wrists look good for my age hmm.

cifani, that pic i posted is not a rolex! it is an omega pro titanium, i think they are currently like $6,800 usd. i'd say keep your grandmas watch. to me it would be more important that my grandma had given it to me than what i actually wanted to have.
plus your grandma must be a high roller at the casino to win that much! i always lose at the casino. btw, i posted the exact ref# of that watch so you can locate it if you wish. it is probably going to be used and a lot more money than it was new.
also, i do not understand how "rubber" is the same as what the homo sapiens is made out of? could you please explain.

Finally found a watch that I really like. Now all I need is a decent seller. :)

From the Bulova Precisionist website:

 

The world's most accurate watch with a continuously sweeping second hand. Two of the factors that affect accuracy in a quartz watch are temperature changes and vibration frequency. Bulova Precisionist technology addresses both by adding a third prong to the quartz crystal and increasing the total vibrations to eight times the frequency of a standard quartz watch. Precisionist is a quartz watch with a second hand that beats 16 times per second, while those on standard quartz watches beat only one time per second. As a result, the continuous motion of the Precisionist second hand is even more fluid than all mechanical watch second hands that beat only 8 to 10 times per second.

That's what my family was also saying, and i totally understand where they are coming from and it does mean something that she gave it to me. I think she had lots of comps to be able to get it, its the Movado Men's Museum watch. Also the rubber band i mentioned as i showed a link previously, was a band made for Rolex watches made out of a Lava material like the HS.

i have had my eye on that bulova as well. it is a good looking watch. what interests me most is it is said to be more accurate than a thermo compensated movement and requires little or no servicing.
also, it is a lot less money than a breitling
