Do watches that retail for less than a tank of gas really need an "imprinted authenticity seal"? Are there Antonio knock-offs floating around?? Really?

Thank you for the kind words, Antonio. The folks here are a real community, I find.
"Professor" - hmm, not so much!

LP: You have my permission. I am ready to hear your comments and you'd might as well post them here!
Sorry I've been absent, personal and family obligations for several days here.
Back on topic: I am wearing a Bulova Precisionist 96B130, see it here:
http://www.worldlux.com/cgi-bin/showpic.cgi?pic=fullsize2.jpg&title=Bulova Precisionist Longwood Steel&path=products/bulova/_watch/precisionistlongwoodsteel
It sort of matches the 96P115 mother of pearl/diamond dial my wife is wearing (http://www.worldlux.com/cgi-bin/showpic.cgi?pic=fullsize2.jpg&title=Bulova Precisionist Longwood Diamond Pearl&path=products/bulova/_watch/precisionistlongwooddiamondpearl ). We are both wearing them because they are our anniversary present to each other!
We acquired them at Macys yesterday because everything aligned to make it easy, and "an offer we could not refuse".
They have an LP model, 96B131 that meets ISO standards for "Watch as a Weapon" with 300M WR. It is big, it looks big and it wears big (I tried it on....) Anyway, according to Bulova:
"....Bulova Precisionist, the world's most accurate watch with a continuous sweeping second hand."
We shall see....

Grats on the Precisionist and your anniversary, Steve! Please keep us posted on your satisfaction with the world's most accurate watch with a sweeping second hand.

I was just getting ready to call you when I decided first to look here. Hope that all is okay, Steve.

I didn't know if you minded if I told others or not and wanted your permission to do so.

What it amounts to, all, is that I had the distinct honor of receiving two Steve's first watch stands. The multiple and the single. As of this moment I have six watches on the large stand and my wife has the small single watch one for herself.

Review: The large stand is T-shaped with arms that equal the length of the base. The base is 3 3/4" wide, while the length is 11 3/4", and the height 5". The cross bar is tilted so that the watch fits with its dial up. The bar will comfortably fit six watches and the base will hold more watches. I'm using the base for keeping two vintage Bulovas, my wedding band at night, reading glasses, and watch tools. It accomodates all of this with ease.

The stand is exceptionally stable, no leaning, tilting, just plain solid. Simple elegance. The only suggestion that I have given Steve is that he give it a choice of three stains (light, medium, and dark). Mine is natural.

The single is more complex. Harder for me to explain. Approx. 5 1/4" high, 3" wide (counting the C-shaped connector), and a 5" base. The watch is situated on the square block. One end of the base is slanted while the end is even. Very unique looking and I wish that I could adequately describe it. Quite attractive. This one is more labor intensive, and yet retains the stability that is so important --- sets off a watch very nicely.

All in all these provide an easily accessible manner in which to store your watches, not to mention show them off. I believe our friend has something here. I like them very much and feel very honored that Steve entrusted these to me. The man does great work.

To you Steve, I publically thank you once again, my friend. Hopefully the others will get to see posted examples of what i have been talking about.

Take care, all. LP

Hi Guys! Wow, I'm gone for a day and so many posts!

Steve: Congratulations on your anniversary and on the Bulovas! My husband and I did the same thing 3 years ago with our Bulovas. Except for what I wrote on my post we are very happy with ours. You two have impeccable taste. I am drooling! And I know how those Macy's deals can be...so I'm sure it was a buy worth doing.

Antonio: you are a hoot! I wish you and your wife were our neighbors! (Can't figure out if and how many kids you have. I know you got "flue" shots...ages?)

LP: My husband is traveling to Oregon to visit his ailing father and he is wearing his Citizen:
http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&q=citizen+E100-S006597+image&wrapid=tlif12873704750901&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=Cre7TKLrN4e4sQPfttCDDw&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CB8QsAQwAA&biw=1020&bih=560
Aren't you and Steve and John from Oregon? And since you are a minister would you say a little prayer...he says it's cold (47 degrees) there! Unlike the high 60's and 70's here in Southern CA.

Doug, thanks to you, I told my husband to do a little research and find out what battalion/regiment his Dad and grandfather fought in in the World Wars (they are from England and my husband is a first generation American). Then I can surprise him with a new strap from the Black Watch Co. to go with his Citizen (did you see the awful strap it comes with in the images?)

Thanks to you all in this forum my level of watch excitement and knowledge in other brands has risen and the horizon widened considerably. And my laughter and smiling also has been uplifted. God bless you all and good night!

Weef

Oh, P.S., E.M.V.C.: I'm over my Tag anger. Ever since Tag and Elin Nordegren divorced Tiger Woods I decided all dishonest Tag wearers would also get their comeuppance. Besides, Antonio is a Tag wearer. I can't stay forever mad at anyone who wears a Tag! But it is interesting that all the Navy Officers wore them...hmmm (are they all delusional sociopaths? Oh no...stop it!)

Weef, where at in Oregon is he travelling to? As to Steve, he is living in Florida. John is in Mass. (not going to try and spell it cold). We come from all over the U.S. and in X's case, England ( he claims that the girls, now old ladies, still speak of my visit there in 1964 --- I believe him). I will remember your husband in prayer. Depending upon how soon the trip is, he may want to ensure that he has something to combat the rain. We are entering that season shortly. Acutally, we should be in it now. Take care, Lady. LP

Steve, congratulations on the Precisionists and your anniversary. My daughter is due in a month and I am wondering if my wife would appreciate a watch. Maybe I can get an "Omega Constelllation" from a vendor in Hong Kong for a decent price.

Hi LP, My husband is already in Oregon just over the California border in a little town called Brookings. Funny you mentioned the jacket, because he did forget it! Thank you for the prayers - very much appreciated. I don't know why I was under the impression you were all neighbors, watching each other's mail...

Doug, why Hong Kong? Did you see the knock-off of the AK Anne Klein I have of the Omega Constellation? http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=484013

Weef, a little busy right now but I'd like to tell you about my kids in a later post ...

Weef,

It is kind of a running gag. Kind of like "Folex" and the "Invincible" watch company.

Weef, the "Homage vs. Fake" path is another one we traveled pretty extensively - see the "Homages vs. Fakes" thread:

Always happy to go there again, though... ;-)

3,

Good choice! Starting to save up for the SeaMaster, here.

Orient on the silicon strap, it is soft on my skin...sometimes I forget it is there! Didn't get the opportunity to go out to macys today to give the precisionist a test drive, hopefully tomorrow...

Good choice 3, there is enough I want right now that I'm waiting till black friday to see if prices go anywhere!

Weef, that little town called Brookings is my next door neighbor. Twenty-seven miles north is Gold Beach, my town. I go to Brookings all the time. In fact, that is where my jeweler is. How long is he going to be staying there? LP

Hi LP, My husband is planning on leaving Brookings early Saturday morning, 10/23. Gosh, how do people on these forums (fora) hook up without the rest of the world finding out their private emails, phone numbers, etc.? I wouldn't want Antonio chasing that poor classy looking young lady who drives a silver Jag from down the street because I was just kidding when I said it was me! (it isn't, Antonio! I drive a Ford!)

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 18, 2010 6:02:16 PM PDT
Don't know that he'd be interested in some coffee, but if so have him call me. I'm the only Popoff (why is that a surprise?) in the book. It's but a short jaunt and I'm usually in Brookings about once a week anyway. LP
