    Laughing Hello and FC - World Timer

    Hi all!

    This is my first venture into non-antique swiss watches, and the first watch and accessories I bought (I had a $5000 budget) were (and should arrive this week):


    a Frederique Constant World Timer with a Blue Dial (FC-718NWM4H6)


    a Frederique Constant ANALYTICS tool


    a HIRSCH VISCOUNT WATERPROOF ALLIGATOR LEATHER WATCH STRAP IN BLUE


    (I will post pictures asap)


    -------------------------------------------------------------------


    My vintage collection contains a few Cartier womans watches, a Philip Patek, a Rolex, a Seiko, and a Bulova.


    I will add pictures as I can, and will try to make posts on sales or buys I have recently done!




    Any recomendation, or opnions would be appreciated!




    Regards,
    Brandon

    I think you will find the FC's to be of good quality and dependability.

    Their blue dialed models really glow and I think you should be happy with your decision to buy FC.

    Post pictures when you get them please.

    You are getting a nice watch and strap. I also would think you saved a share of your 5k budget which is a nice plus as well.

    Once you have the watch bug, any leftover funds will be ready for the next purchase!

    Good luck.

    Re: Hello and FC - World Timer

    Just got it today, however I received the white not blue dial by mistake so I will have to return it, however I am not sure since the white dial with blue accents is growing on me, and it would mean I dont have to wait till next week. However here still is a picture of it, by hirsch strap is arriving Thursday so I have that to wait for aswell!

    So I messaged the store, and decided to keep the white dial at a discount, since I thought it would look better on my blue hirsch strap then a fully blue dial.

    Nice looking watch. Be sure to post pictures after your strap install.
