if I hadnt come to the party 5 months too late I'd have bought one too!! :mda:

Keep an eye out on the SC... my guess is that a few will sell in the 2 weeks after delivery :yes:

If you go by my latest record... I haven't been happy about 90% of the watches I have bought recently.

...and I still don't know what I'll feel about a blue watch with that sort of trying-to-look old tritium lume. That's a trepidation I been feeling more and more the closer the delivery date comes. Not alone in this too... So who knows, you might be right. If it was a black and white snowflakie, I know it would be a keeper... as it is, it remains to be seen. :unsure:

Yep, if it's too custardy, I might have to give someone else custody.

I was actually apologising for my terrible pun - custardy / custody - which you very politely ignored so as not to embarrass me. (I know your English is better than mine...) :D

Of course it isn't and if you need proof, it wasn't politeness that made me miss the pun :lol:

In the time it has taken you could have bought a real one, enjoyed it and sold it on with little or no loss, maybe even a small profit. I doubt if you'll be able to say that about the look a likey.

:lol: :lol:

Right...this is basically a knock off isn't it?

Im sorry, but this is sailing way to close to the wind to be a "hommage" and is a blatant copy of a classic....."with aged patina" surely this is a piss take?

A nod to a classic is cool, but to do such a blatant rip-off really is taking the piss....

There's a touch of double standards and hypocrisy around what is/is not acceptable....

the line between wearing a hommage and a fake is so blurred its laughable.......

I couldnt care less one way or another if someone wants to wear a turkish beach knock off rep of a rolex, or this...it really doesn't bother me......but, some of you are so quick to get on a bandwagon if someone does wear a replica/knock off/panny-a-like or whatever......

Actually it wouldn't surprise me that some fakes did turn up, I noticed recently they were offering a rip off of a Tag Carrera..........nearly €1000 !!!!

I bought and sold a real Tag Carrera for that :lol: :lol:

Does it have Tudor on the dial?

No!

Would I like a Tudor Snowflake?

Yes but I really can`t be arsed spending the (IMO) ridiculous amount of money they cost so I`m quite happy to buy the Steinhart version & I really don`t give a flying fig what other people think about it :tease:

Have a nice day :D

There's the problem right there... if you cared you wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything but a Tudor... because you know everybody knows what a Tudor Snowflake is anyway :D

Almost Tminus 27 :P
