      Honestly Todd, I don't know about Mont Blanc as a watch maker...
      You didn't like the Breitling? How about IWC? Btw I can get you good price for top end watches. I know the owner of one of the Collins St watch stores.

      I have a few people I know who are huge watch collectors - think TOP TOP end watches that can be traded for small african nations - that have said the Mont Blanc is exceptional value.
      We have some hook ups on Collins Street too Wayne. He likes IWC, so do I If your mate can do us a good deal on them and he is keen, I will shout out.
      I personally think Rolex and Breitling are a bit too old looking and want my dad to get something fresher.

      Didn't know that the MB rates so highly with watch collectors. I buy their pens, not watches. Whatever you decide to get, let me know the price you can get and I will see what I can do. Actually I know the owners of two of the best shop watches on Collins St and myself and other friends often buy watches from them. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Which IWC btw? Maybe we will get together. My wife is gonna kill me but what the heck, it's xmas!

      I'd have a leather strap though.
      And the original Heuer mechanical one would be the one I'd like most.

      I like them too (and Monaco) but don't like the fact that it isn't crystal glass. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]

      Hey all, I know there is a few watch nuts out there and I was wondering if you had $10,000 to buy a watch what would you buy...
      Im thinking a Mont Blanc Automatic Timewalker Chronograph for about $8K apprantly.
      Seriously. Well not for me, for my dad
      Todd

      I'd get one of these vintage Omegas built up from NOS parts for about 2k (ignore the bracelet in the photo), then I'd probably buy another couple of vintage Omegas and go on a Holiday with the balance

      How big are his wrists? If big enough a Panerai may be the go, get the right one and they seem to go up in value. They have modern and vintage styles, the vintage styles show the best taste IMHO

      Actually for 8k you could have a holiday in Singapore and buy that Mont Blanc, paying retail for that in Australia is mental. It's a bit of a cliche but a Rolex holds it's value well and is one of the most liquid consumer goods in the world, it can be flipped for cash in probably any city on the planet.

      Panerai! How can I not think of that. Excellent watches. It's COOL! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] As for buying retail, who does that anyway? Most of the time I am able to get better prices here (after claiming GST) than discounted price in Sg. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Franck Muller Long Island, comes with or without the 'bling'. Or if he wants something very large the cortez has just been released and will be very rare. I can get you a good deal im looking out my window now at the geneva flagship store. Save 15K!

      Wayne, how many watch places are there in Collins street!?! What end are we talking? Are we talking one named after a certain European nation renowned for its watch craftsmanship? We know a guy who knows a guy who knows the owner of one of the ones further up the hill - they did a ripping deal on my sisters watch!
      Im trying to talk dad into a IWC Portuguese Chrono, but I dont hink he is having a bar of it... I think we will have a bit more of chat about it tomorrow and maybe go look at stuff.
      The watch collector I was refering to mentioned that the MB watches are very well made and very reasonably priced for what you get. He didnt say they were awesome, go buy one...
      Hopefully that makes sense... I've had a few too many to drink

      You would kick yourself if you scratched it a few days after spending $5,000 on it though wouldnt you!?!

      Both my wife and I ahve automatic Tag Heuer paid $750 each @ Monards in Collins St about 10 years ago....never missed a beat.
      My brought my wife a nice Rado ceramic with diamonds which was around the $3K mark
      I am looking at a Omega Bond watch next but $15K I would not go past IWC or Audemars Piguet or Patek Philippe

      Franck Muller Revolution 2. At US$606k they might be a bit over your budget
      Silliness aside, I have a IWC Portuguese Chrono which has been faultless.
