Oh man! Those Avengers are wonderful!

He better love it!

I am so glad that you have got into the obsession! Hunting for rare models and deals helps one pass the time.

Are you planning on an Avenger as well for your MBA present?

Or are you still looking at the Omega or Tudor?
Here's what I ended up getting him. Since we're all working from home I wanted to get him something I could picture him wearing on his Harley. He's 10 years older than me and helped pay for some of my private school back in the day so I'm glad to return some love.

As far as my gift, every time I look at the Black Bay bronze I fall in love with it again. I think that'll be the winner.

Very nice!

You are a good brother!

I think I might shit myself if anyone in my family, or life in general, ever got me something that nice.

The bronze is a nice watch. The have a silver version now too, .935 solid silver.

I know the bronze gets a patina with it that some hate and some love. That silver tarnishing would drive me crazy I feel like. I know you mentioned wanting a Tudor with gems on the bezel? Where do you get that done?

Also one more question if you'll indulge me. I could have gotten the watch I got cheaper if I went with a professional dealer from Hong Kong on Chrono24 but I ended up buying from one in England. Have you bought from one of the pro dealers outside of Europe?

So Tudor submariners are the same as the Rolex, and Rolex has made a number of gem bezels over the years. And also, one can have them custom made. It is not as expensive as one might suppose. But there are a number of reputable jewelers that do them.

Many high end watch companies will have the occasional diamond or gem bezel. One has to look for them though. One can have a custom bezel made for most high-end watches. I have a factory diamond bezel for my LE Breitling Chronomat.

==============

I have! I bought the Omega Regatta chrono from a professional dealer out of Japan. Worked out quite well, though import fees add up.
