  • Date acquired 12/28/10

Quick notes and overall review

Finally found an affordable used RGM, from their Pilot line. ETA 2892 movement, nice white-on-black hands, no date (alas), 38mm of sporty dress watch on an alligator band.

Interestingly, drster was also selling an IWC Spitfire, from their flieger line, with the same movement (IWC 30110). That one was an extra thousand dollars, for similar condition! Quite the brand premium for IWC vs RGM.

Note that the used price is half the new; surprisingly poor value retention. Look for a used one, or be prepared to lose on reselling.
