Nate the Olivier is tempting if it weren't for how damn nice this Helson is. I'm on the prowl for a nice Blue dial watch (Tudor Submariner, Omega Seamaster Ceramic or 300m) or a Rolex GMT (vintage and possibly Black/gold) at the moment. Anyone have some other suggestions suggestions?
For you I'll do $550 shipped with a lb of coffee.

What's a good cheap winder? I'm looking for something off Amazon, single or double winder, storage for at least 2 watches (including watches being wound, under $75. I'm OK with plastic, leather, or wood; not plastic that looks like wood or vinyl.

I use the brookstone dual watch winder. I chose it because it's really quiet during the rotation and doesn't have an LED light like some other brands have. Brookstone have random sales too

Are Wolf Designs under $100 with sales? Haven't kept up with their current sales. That's what I would recommend if they are.

Someday I hope to join this club. Or rejoin the Omega club

For now I'm relegated to the Seiko and other affordable watch club.

Kinda funny how life works... When I could barely afford a watch like an Omega or a Tag, I had an Omega and a Tag. Now that I easily can, I know there's bigger ticket items I'd rather buy first. Like a McMansion, then an M3, FINALLY then will I get a Sub or Planet Ocean.

BNIB Speedmaster Pro (ref. 311.30.42.30.01.005). The new version of the 3570.50 (hesalite crystal and solid caseback) that comes with the presentation box, straps, tools, etc.

The packaging is unbelievably heavy. Feels over 10lbs. A bit extreme for a 42mm watch. lol

That's Omega for you... They know that an extra $20 worth of swag and packaging goes a long way.

It's amazing. I've been wanting a moonphase watch for a few years now. I've also been into light colored dials lately. So, when they released this watch earlier this year, I instantly fell in love. The chronograph's sweeping second hand is so incredibly smooth, smoother than both my Speedy's and 1887 Carerra. The exhibition caseback shows off the beautiful 410 movement. At 42mm, it wears a little bit larger than the Speedy, event though they're both 42mm in diameter. The El Primero's lug to lug distance is slightly longer than the Speedy. But one of my favorite things about the watch is that, similar to my Explorer II, it flies under the radar for most regular people. It's become one of my favorite watches in my collection.

Beautiful watch and that packaging is insane. Looks too similar to my Fastrider for me to pickup or if be all over it.

Nice man! I'm really digging your collection- Explorer II, Speedy, Carrera 1887, El Primero... What else ya got hiding up that sleeve?

Dude! When the hell did you get a Rose Gold Dayonta?!?! I absolutely love that watch! I just hate its price tag

Tough decision on whether you should flip the coke for the BLNR. I probably would because I love the modern Rolex amenities. But I would have second thoughts about it depending on how long I've owned it.

i got it a couple of months after it came out. i saved up for about 2 years to get a white gold one, but when i had enough money saw that this one was coming out so just decided to wait for it. it's the first and last watch that i'll buy over $10k.

my brother is going to buy it from me incase i decide to get rid of it since it's my dad's first expensive watch. i really love the explorer ll but i travel a lot so it's more practical for me to get a gmt. i wish i could afford both though.

i don't care what everyone says about rolex, it's a great watch. resale value is great and where i am, finding a buyer is pretty easy.

I don't think anyone knowledgable about watches has ever said anything bad about Rolex

hnnggg.... So jealous.

The BLNR is a great watch. I got mine last October and so far its made for a great change from my daily sub. I am starting to wear it more often now as it taken me four months to come to terms that scratches on polished center links is inevitable
