I don't know 62, I think I would just as well have this http://www.aspinaloflondon.com/products/leather-jeans-wallet-in-black-jewel-calf-and-red-suede and put the other $145 into it:bigsmile_face:

I Kickstarted a new watch brand called Leonard & Church and my reward arrived yesterday. I'm quite impressed with the quality for what I gave in support.

 

 

Quick and dirty photo taken at work.

That is one beautiful watch, mate!

I walked by a Tourneau this afternoon, and asked them if I could trade in my stainless/black/no date Submariner for the 2-tone stainless/gold band with blue face, and they told me they would give my $3600 for mine.

Originally, they wanted $6500 for the 2-tone in 1999, and now they are selling it for $7595.

 

I bought mine from them in 1999 for $3300! :cool:

 

That's a watch that really held it's value, plus some….

Stunning.

Took all of my watches and attached them to each other to make a belt. Thought it might look kind of cool...

 

 

 

...I was wrong, it ended up being a big waist of time.

Do they have their own In-House movement Axel?

-Miyota quartz movements, according to their website. (In-house would in all likelihood be prohibitively expensive - designing one's own movement for production in small series would not be compatible with a sensible price tag...)

Well with my vast knowledge in watch manufacturers in general I'm assuming it's a Japanese Quartz movement used in them? Newbs right:blink:

-Quite right - Japanese made it is. (And, they are not bad at all!) Definitely not the pinnacle if quartz movements at that price point - but Miyotas are pretty robust and plenty accurate, made by Citizen.

Cool, I think Citizen makes a decent watch so I'm sure the L&C is a good piece. THX for the clarification.

Yeah, they're using Citizen's Miyota quartz movements. I've had good luck with Citizen watches in the past (my father's is almost 30 years old at this point) so they make decent, reliable movements. The L&C even has a 10 year warranty so I'm happy about that. The kickstarter campaign got them to include sapphire crystals in all of the models as well, a big plus.

 

Now I'm trying to find a replacement band as the one they included is very stiff and I'm also not too fond of the alligator design on watch bands. I'm trying to find some nice soft leather bands that are very malleable and will work in a dress situation. This is most likely going to be my non-metal-banded dress watch.

Good day or night to everyone,

 

I picked up two Generation G-Shock Bluetooth watches from Nordstrom Rack last night.  The prices were "affordable", and I can use the red orange Gen 2 Bluetooth to control my audio playback on my iPhone 6, and will be used while running and hiking, which will be great because I do not want to mess up the electric blue Gen 2 Bluetooth watch I currently own.

 

I have 3 buttons on each watch custom set to:

 

1. Play/Pause

2. Volume Up

3. Fast Forward/Next Track

 

Gen 1 White Bluetooth Watch (GB6900AA-7):

 

Gen 1 White Bluetooth Watch - Illuminated (GB6900AA-7):

 

Gen 2 Red Orange Bluetooth Watch (GBX6900B-4):

 

Gen 2 Red Orange Bluetooth Watch - Illuminated (GBX6900B-4):

 

Gen 1 Watch on Left, Gen 2 Watch on Right:

 

Gen 1 Watch on Left, Gen 2 Watch on Right:

 

Gen 1 Watch on Left, Gen 2 Watch on Right - Both Illuminated:
