    That's beautiful.. Thanks for posting. Ah, to be insanely wealthy... that's the only way I'd ever collect pieces like that. To own a $50k watch would be one thing, but to own one as rare as this one.. I don't think I could wear it. Could you imagine getting mugged?!! Shudder..

    Lol, agreed.. have there been any renderings of what we can expect the fulcrum to look like?

    After looking at the Robert Maron 6542, the crown looks wrong. The crown seems to be too thin. Possibly it's the photo, but I'm not sure.

    I thought the same thing. Something off with it.

    If it was up to me (and I'm sure I am alone here) I would LOVE to see the key west with the Kingston big crown.

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    Somewhere back in the dim dark past that crown was changed. It's not the standard crown that came with the 6542's , too thin, and as you said, the inner chamfer is wrong. I doesn't even look like a Rolex crown to me, at least not anything I have seen, and I have looked at a ton of Rolex crowns. Another thing, Maron has sold some dodgy watches in the past, maybe they don't know any better, but if they get snookered on a trade, they are sure as heck going to pass it along and get their money back. Before I would buy a gen like this one, I would gladly pay someone like Bob Ridley to pass on it before the money changed hands.

    Yeah, Bill posted a new photo collection on the MKII website, and the last picture is a picture of his Fulcrum. Whether that's the final product or not, I know not, but it sure looks sweet. Still number 4 on my wish list of MKIIs though, behind a Key West, Vantage and 3-6-9 Nassau. See what I did there? That's how I tied it back into the Key West thread :)

    I used to see one of these all the time. Belonged to a Masonic brother who recently died. He was a naval aviator. Had been flying since he was 12. His watch was much nicer than the one pictured. He restored clocks and was a real watch/clock guy.
