      Much to my chagrin, my dad recently sold his original Tudor Monte Carlo. I've wanted his watch since I was a kid. He bought a vintage Submariner though, so I suppose that's alright.

      Its for sale at a jeweler in Barrie, Ontario if anyone is interested.

      Those pics dont do the watch justice. http://blog.perpetuelle.com/sihh/sih...assa-sapphire/

      I sell them and that RM56 is SICK! I tried selling it to one of my clients so I could play with the watch for a couple of days, but is a no go and I am pretty sure they are all sold out by now.

      I Also sell those.. They are pretty neat, I must say. And they also make pens, not quite as nice as the watches.

      They are only 14k if you don't care for a gold one. 15k if you want a limited edition one.

      This is too cool. The green goo in the glass tube is the minute display. There are tiny compressors that move the fluid to exact precision as the minutes pass.

      In the vein of this thread, all of these are in the $5k plus range (sans the Nomos), none of which I own or can afford. There are plenty in the $1-$5k rang I like as well.

      question since it seems as though you're a watch dealer (or maybe these pics are taken off the net)

      but when a customer comes in and lets say buys that radar watch, do you give him a new one boxed or the one on display?

      went to a watch place with my dad who was picking out an omega and the guy let him try it out. my dad said he'd take it and then the dealer went to box the one on display, my dad said he wanted a new one and the dealer literally got upset.

      who wouldn't want one boxed instead of one that everyone and their grand father tries on in store?

      also the guy "couldn't" find one in the back.

      Well. I do sell watches for a living.
      That being said, say We get a watch, We store the box and papers on the back and display the watch.
      We Never get more than one on any given piece, so there not another one to give to people.
      And watches don't go "bad" because some one touches them. The watch maker touched it and who ever shipped it from Switzerland and a number of other people.
      You can ask the sales person to clean it with alcohol if you want. But the new watch should be flawless with no nicks of any sort. Maybe you guys had a misunderstanding and or the sales person was a d-bag. Who knows.
      Either way, is not like you test drive a car and you ask for another one.

      With high end watches you buy what you see. Dealers do not keep extras on hand. Its not like buying a Timex or Casio from K-mart.

      Dealers will have many tens of thousands of dollars of watches on display, they're not going to double that number in order to have extras on hand.

      Haha I don't think so. I wrote $5k plus. The Flyback is more like $60,000-$80,000.
