Splurge Jaeger-LeCoultre Or Longines:

Post by koimaster » October 31st 2022, 6:54pm

So you're in the market for a round, thin dress watch. You're not alone. I, for example, am right here with you.

I started to become a fan of ultra-thin watches when I tried on the record-breaking Richard Mille RM UP-01, a watch I will not be purchasing unless the Crown Prince of Morocco turns up at my house today and asks me to marry him. Assuming this does not happen, I could see myself choosing between the offerings you see here from Jaeger-LeCoultre and Longines.

I'm digging the winged hourglass design of the Longines case--- but unfortunately the watch is powered by either Renata or Rayovac.
The JLC is a cool-as-hell fapping inducing watch and despite digging that movement, I don't do silver hands on silver dial watches anymore.



Guess I'll stick to this towering Port Royal handcranker at 9mm.

Your money, your choice.
I find the Longines very interesting from the pic but oh that Jag.
No help deciding I guess.
