    It's the same Jazzmaster Chrono but it's a non-US model.

    Indeed. Great watch. You inspired me to track down a vintage 6309. Perhaps I need a 5513 before the prices go through the roof.

    hey my brother is looking for a new watch and i thought i'd ask for him, he really likes this one but he's still in college and doesnt want to spend that much

    http://www1.macys.com/catalog/produc...tegoryID=29299

    he's not that into fashion/style and everything but he's pretty much set on a black, metal band, chronograph (chronograph part optional but must have day/date) for around 100-200, he also likes the ceramic types but that's a bit more expensive

    sorry if this isn't the right thread but i thought it would get some replies

    ^That Seamaster's in great shape. Either that or the restoration guy is a wizard.

    Dial was in great shape. I got a new strap and new crystal, plus the parts got serviced. It is indeed in fantastic shape!

    This is from the 1930's by Piaget. They took a real $20 gold coin (1 ounce) and emptied out the middle and threw a watch in there! A small button on the side of the "coin" opens the face of the coin to reveal the watch. Truly an amazing piece, and a centerpiece in my watch collection.

    Nice vintage piece, really looking to purchase more vintage but can't find a dealer I trust. Way too many fakes circulating.

    ^That watch is amazing. After I saw that first pic I thought you were some fruitcake who put a watchband on a gold dollar.
