    What' the implication of this? Your Tag, Rolex, Omega, Tissot etc watches are on the inside all the same!! What makes them a Tag or Omega is just the make-up on the outside. However, the movement is what makes a watch special.
    While you may not bother what's running your watch when you buy a 200$ watch as one may consider this as a fasion accessory, I'd imagine to be different for a USD12'000 watch. You may want to make sure that for that kind of money you get something special and not the same movement that can be found in a watch for 1/3 the price... otherwise what are you paying those $$ for? Like when you buy an Ferrari you want a Ferrari engine inside and not a Fiat....

    Don't fancy the date window of the Merc SLR McLaren showing 3 dates. Have the Grand Carrera series already launched here? Got the Heuer (without 'Tag' on the dial) Carrera re-edition. Looked at Fortis? Just bought a B42 Pilot Pro. Considered the B42 Official Cosmonaut but find it a tad big for my wrist. Feast your eyes on the coming Tempus - The Temple of Time exhibition.

    would any of our opinions may not carry any weight in ur final consideration? mayb should oso ask a few of ur gf.
    yes.definitely would.

    my gal friends all said the calibre 16 is nicer.and since they dun really know cars....i guess it being a 722 limited edition means nothing to them.

    I'm a guy, and I don't like the car...
    Looks like Jiam Tao Lo Tee (French Bread).
    BMW Z3/Z4 also looks like Jiam Tao Lo Tee... and I don't like them all.

    ... and I'm not anti-Jeanie... unless Jeanie looks like Jiam Tao Lo Tee.

    "limited edition" is 1 way to fleece d well heeled, like bump up d value. y not getting something more endearing rather than follow trends since u paying a tidy sum?

    Based on a local horology mag I have, the list price of the Merc SLR is S$7,300. Bundled with both steel and rubber straps. Limited to 3,500pcs.
