^^Tudor Royal...Agreed, just looked online to see if the bezel was less bling in real life, it isn't and the watch overall is a little too Michael Kors unfortunately!
At that price with the integrated bracelet look, blue dial and 100m WR I really wanted to like it.

This is the Longines Lindbergh Hour Angle in a replica form sold 2006.
It has a tremedous 47mm diameter, resembling the original from 1931 built around a pocket watch caliber, hence the size.
This one now contains the Longines L699.2 caliber, has the hunter-lid at the back to show its beauty, but under glass to give it some water resistance that pocket watches lack.

You find the model history here:

I also agree. It had promise, a Tudor Day Date but somehow it doesn't work and the bezel is the main issue. The price is quite modest for a Tudor, partly as it isn't an IHM.

The bezel looks an awful lot better at anything other than dead-on, but overall it misses the mark in my opinion. However, the Glamour Date-Day is much better looking and a nicer size at 39mm for only a slight increase in price.

This is simply stunning! Although there are probably 10+ other LF watches I could have easily posted here.

^^^ Well I would take that LF (well any LF) over any PAM of any type. :)

Unfortunately guidance provided to me in the strongest terms by my financial adviser and wealth manager has convinced me that it would be inappropriate for me to pursue such a course of action! :lol:

More of a nightmare than a dream that one - that bezel's hideous!

Lovely watch. :thumbup:

I missed one of those at a good price a few years ago. :(

Really like the shape of the case, as well as the dial, which I much prefer to the snowflake.

IIRC GS have also used that case on a couple of recent models.

I too missed out on one a couple of years ago and have been kicking myself ever since! Prices have gone up in line with GS' new release prices too it seems so it's only going to get more expensive.

I love the 62gs case from the pictures but haven't managed to see one in the flesh yet which is another reason I've held off till now. Luckily a UK option has popped up that offer returns so I can check it out properly and see if the 40mm is ok.

The new 62gs season range are lovely, especially the pink spring one but again they're more expensive and I think the 125s white dial is more versatile for strap changes.

I sold a Bremont Solo, GS quartz, vintage (birth year) Smiths and a Junghans Chronoscope to get my Snowflake. I was incredibly lucky to buy a used but excellent condition watch in a face to face with a forum member and I don’t regret it for a moment.

That said, I would certainly buy another Chronoscope
