    The look of a JLC Master Control...

    Simply gorgeous, innit? But I don't have the money for this. What are some affordable alternatives? My thread in F71 didn't get me anywhere...



    (Not my pic)

    I have searched quite a bit these last couple of weeks, and narrowing down my preferences, I keep coming back to this look. Its what I want. I used to have this vintage 10k gold Bulova Accutron that had the same basic look and I LOVED it, but it recently got stolen:



    Where can I find this look for like 400 dollars? I know about the Sea Gull:


    But it is discontinued. I'm open to quartz or automatic at this point, silver or gold/champagne dial. Any reputable brands. I just don't understand why this basic look isn't more popular?? Can anyone help me find it?

    I would suggest, as I so often do, a SARB035, at almost exactly your price range



    It lacks the numerals, but it gets the basic feel right, and it's got a solid 6R15 movement to back it up.

    How affordable are we talking? A price range would be helpful.

    Ah, sorry. 400 bucks. My bad.
    How about this? Only a tiny bit over budget.

    It's a good watch. I think it also captures the feel of the Jaeger pretty faithfully while still not being a copy. It's also a good value, so if you like it, definitely worth a visit to an AD to check it out.

    I would save and get the Hammy. You get a 'look' and some quality.
    Or a Seiko.
    Quartz is just blah.
    Unless accuracy and battery changes are ok of course.

    +1 for the Hamilton. It's not a JLC. But it's not a slob either.
