    Sorry about re-posting the pic! also, the jaeger-le coultre reverse watches are beautiful and very durable. They were first made for polo players who needed a watch that was less likely to be scratched. Buy it!!but they are expensive lol, around £4000 starting price for a middle range one.

    Patek Philippe
    Vacheron Constantin
    Audemars Piguet
    Jaeger le Coultre
    Blancpain/Breguet
    Girard Perregaux

    ... these are the traditional top watch manufacturers, the ones which invented the most complex mechanical innovations, tourbillons and so. But there is a world of mechanical watches out there, Glashutte, Eberhard, Hublot, IWC, A.Lange & Sohne, Franck Muller, Paul Picot, Bedat&Co, Panerai, Parmigiani...

    20 years after the arrival of the first Swatch, and just when we just don't need to wear any watch because we can read the time in our mobile phone, the sales of complicated mechanical watches are higher than ever.

    ^yes...it's amazing...I guess that watches are very different accessories. They are more understated often times due to the size...honestly with the same amount of money, a nice watch will probably give me much more joy than a birkin bag, IMHO. I thought about buying a birkin or kelly, but somehow now I'm leaning towards a reverso:smile:

    I used to have the same "dilemma" and eventually always chose the watch and did not regret it.

    I have some swatch watches, a new elegant i got from my parents for xmas, i also often wear my mom's old watch from the 60s. I have a thing for that watch, like it's a good-luck charm to me, its lil noise makes me calm down and feel safe on the exams. :blush:

    But the most precious is this one on the photo. Its story goes back to the second world war when russian soldiers stole things from ppl's home here and they also loved watches a lot.. :rolleyes: One soldier told my grandfather to give him his watch and my grandpa asked back in russian "if you get my watch, how will i know the time?" and the soldier was so surprised he let grandpa choose from the watches he "collected".. Now, this is that watch.. :wink:

    ImpsblePrincess - yes, isn't the watch lovely?? The pink is much prettier compared to the regular pink on the roadster.
