ahh, yes, the caliber 5000/pellaton on the portuguese is one of my favorites. i've been eyeing the perpetual calendar myself, too bad it's basically eyecandy for me until i get out of school. i've seen people selling the portugese for ~$5000-$6000 near mint condition on a few watch forums, you may want to check those out if you wish to save a grand or two for basically a new watch!

have you also looked into other brands in the same price range? you can get some really beautiful nardins or audemars at that price range (gently used, or course), i tend to favor the artistry of those over the more conservative iwc's...if i want conservative it'll be a patek for a dress watch and mid-range for everything else.

Got it last Spring Break, not bad for a first/starter watch. A step up from my Fossils from my younger days. I really love watches, but being 18 they aren't really a high priority on my list.

I look to adding another one to my collection come my birthday or hopefully if I get a job and have some money to blow.

I love watches. I have owned some decent pieces but had to sell them not too long ago. But I have kept my baby...always.

Wordy - is that seiko premier a kinetic drive? i see the little rating thing on the 9-12 o'clock side, which is typical of seiko kinetics. usually seiko will have kinetics somewhere on the facedial, but it just says automatic...so maybe it's just the reserve power from the automatic winder? you tell me


The movement on this watch is SEIKO's 6R20 automatic, it is not kinetic. As you look at the back you will notice the mainspring is wound by an oscillating weight. Most Seiko Kinetics/quartz have a tiny generator driven by an oscillating weight. But yes, has a 45 hrs power reserve.

i see, thanks! i've always liked the kinetic series, i've always wanted one but now i guess is a bit late with the eco drive already out.

I've checked some forums selling the watch but if I can get the dealer to sell it for near the around the same price range, although it's going to be difficult, I would rather buy it from them and establish a relationship for the future.

I've checked out Audemars but their Millenary series is a bit too plain for me and their Royal Oak series just isn't doign it for me. To be honest for the price of Audemars, I rather get a Hublot Big Bang. At least with those I don't have to worry about getting it banged up. I have this thing about black watches and I can't resist the Hublot's all black BB and ICE. I'm also considering Zenith, for some reason I just really like the complicated faces their watches have, their skeleton watches are nice too and it's pretty easy to get Zenith on a discount.
