    Haha
    I actually keep very few watches, and usually not for long, but this one is special. About the panda, it's one of the 2 or 3 that I kind of regret having sold...

    i really think you can put these up against the all time great chronos

    and the unicorn gilt examples and the ones w/ breguet #s are truly OMFG watches

    I feel like the majority of M95 and M90s that I’ve seen out (whether for sale or in a private collection) have very sharp cases. Does anyone feel the same way? It seems odd (in the best way) that we dont see that many totally botched or rounded lugs.

    I have been thinking the same thing, they tend to hold their form well, or that type of buyer didn't wear as much, as hard, or polish.

    Threads like these reignite my long love for these, but also make me kick myself for putting them off in pursuit of others when prices now make 2447 Carreras look like bargains.

    Question for the owners, how do they wear compared to say a 2447 Carrera, Gallet Multichron, etc? I mainly ask due to their relative thickness.

    i think they wear very well . . .similar to a carrera from my perspective

    can't go wrong with a 2447. . also all time great chronos but to me beyond the 2447N they don't scale the highest heights like a good movado with kris hands

    the gallets are larger i think

    There are many other M90/95 styles that haven't even made it to auction. I would be curious to see how much those fetch. The prototype model I have in mind could go for $50k+. I also heard of a chronodiver in mint condition being sold for above $20k

    I am typically not into chronos but the M95 just does it for me. I was thoroughly depressed when I learned of the price range, though. Bite the bullet and get one now hoping the exuberance continues?

    Although expensive, I think they are still undervalued if you consider It’s a borgel case (think Patek 1468), patek-style pushers, multiple incredible dial options, kris hands (preferably, but others available) and respected movement. It has all the ingredients of a watch that will have lasting power. Finding them in good shape is a challenge as you might know

    Are the first generation (reference ending in "38") cheaper than the third generation? Are there specific styles within the first generation that are valued higher than others (aside from condition)? For example, with a radium Arabic dial of first gen, is price pretty well correlated with condition, or are there other elements to consider within that subset?

    Hope those questions make sense. I've come across a 1st Gen arabic dial that seems quite high. I can post some pictures, but also just trying to understand generalities.

    565 type cases and Breguet numerals are generally the most valued. Then the other FB cases and things with interesting dials (multicolor scales, interesting layouts, etc.), but hard to give more hard and fast rules. And definitely can't say much more about a specific price without pictures or what the 'high' price actually is. I paid up for mine but was fine doing so because of the case, dial condition, and attractive aesthetic.
