A Long Time Grail Reeled in at Last...

Postby Thunder1 » February 21st 2017, 7:10pm

The Watch Gods were smiling on me last week as I perused the 'bays many offerings..and lo and behold, a new to me Glashutte Original PanoReserve appeared before my eyes at a reasonable price!!..finally, a grail within financial reach!!..it is no Lange 1, but for the $, it is pretty close..this baby was probably made between 2012 & 2014...some of the particulars are 1)a 39mm SS case w/ sapphire top and bottom glass..the whole package is about 11mm thick, 2)the dial is silver, and the hands are black, 3)the dial sports a very attractive PR indicator and a panoramic large date window..

Image

Turning it over provides a very nice view of the GO 65-01 manual movement....It has 48 jewels, a hand engraved balance cock & oscillators...the 3/4 movement plate itself is decorated with Cotes de Geneve stripes..quite an effort!!..

Image

At 39mm, it fits my wrist nicely..it came with an alligator strap attached to a GO quick release deployment buckle..

The European Watch Co. also has a brick and mortar establishment in Boston, Mass..they were asking $5,900.00 for it and settled for $5,500.00..they(Albert) treated me very well and the watch came with a 1 year warranty..I highly recommend them..this baby will probably shove itself into my weekly rotation, with ease..

Holy crap muffins! That is a serious watch, sir.

Congrats on picking up one of your dream watches. Well worth the price.

I was wondering what you were talking about the other day. Definitely a huge score and a date window that you'll be able to read for many years to come. That's a grand salami.

I'm choosing my words carefully here:

That's one of the most outstanding watches I've ever seen here. Mega-congrats; that's just wonderful in very conceivable way. That one is a triple "wow."

The truly nice thing about integrated strap/bracelet watches..... it prevents someone from fucking them up with a gay NATO strap.

Very, very nice. Though personally I'd prefer a big date version.
