Watch maker in Ohio does custom work. You design it, he makes it. If you use readily available parts, it's very reasonable, and you get a one of a kind design.

Most of the parts are off the replica market (as in Xray's case being PAM inspired), but he won't do a "replica". Kinda a cool way to have a unique watch and not have it be a replica, if that offends you.

On the order of 10^-7 actually, so much slower than that.

Isn't that basically just a Panerai Replica without the brand.I swear I've seen that before. With the Swiss 6498 Handwound movement and Superlume.

PM 335Xray. He bought it from a watch maker in (i think) Cleveland. I was hangin out with him tonight, he had it on, looks pretty good with the custom leather strap he has for it.

Still rockin an oversized (45mm) Fossil Chronograph right now, its "stuntastic"... i promise.



I am planning on buying a vintage Chronograph in the near future though. Probably something like this 1940's Rolex.






My Dad had a few Breitlings before he passed away so I'm sure I'll end up getting them from my stepmom one day soon.

I actually snagged two newbies before the April 1st price increase. Their watches are going up 12-16% which is just crazy and pretty much pricing out average income earners like myself.
Long story short, I sold a Pam 24 to help pay for an engagement ring and promised myself I would get another some day. My AD had a 12 month no interest deal, and with a kid on the way, I figured it was now or never so I hopped on 2.
They are great investments and my advice is to buy limited production models. Often times the Historics (base models) are the most desired.
I ended up buying a Pam 240 which is a new model this year. It's a titanium Marina with date and tobacco dial. Limited to 1000 pieces, and a gorgeous looking watch if you can find one.
The other watch I got was a 219 which is a left handed base model limited to 400 pieces.
Make friends with a sales person, tell them what you want, and get on a list. The best watches usually never make it to the case since they are spoken for once they come in.
Good Luck!
