Omega Speedmaster Perpetual Calendar
UPDATE: Looks as though I will in fact be at the last day or two of SalonQP. For those readers who will come to the event and want to have a meet-up after the event for watch talk and drinks - I will arrange for a time and place after gauging the number of attendees. Please comment below or contact me if you are interested.

The above watch retailers were chosen by me for a range of reasons. They are either very large stores or have a reputation for having quality sales people. Each of them responded as proudly having highly educated watch sales people or at the least have policies that make efforts to educate their sales people. Stores like Manfredi ensure their staff take part in learning activities as offered from representatives of the brands, and most have senior salespeople who travel to the brand's headquarters and visit the large watch shows.
There are similarities both interesting and relatively trivial between wine and watches. Though both are things that people have been spending their lives obsessing over (for 100s of years). Don't make me state how watches, like wine, get better with age. I must admit that wearing a nice Lange timepiece on your wrist while enjoying a good California wine does seems very natural. A. Lange & Sohne had me convinced a long time ago that their watches and work is fantastic. No one really seems to disagree. In that sense they are among the least controversial timepieces I know. The single complaint I've ever heard about their watches is the price - which of course is not inexpensive. At the same time Lange watches could be priced higher. Each piece is hand assembled, finished, and decorated. Each movement is assembled twice, and each watch comes in a precious metal case. That and each A. Lange & Sohne watch is useful. They make few pieces that (assuming you could afford it) would not sit comfortably as a daily wear.
