New Baltic: You were right.

For those who said a non-limited Tricompax. You were right. 馃憤

A very pretty watch, certainly, but there are too many other tempting things for me that I'd rather spend 拢1.5k on at the moment.

Anyone doing the preorder?

Very competitively priced, but I have to say, if someone is looking for a panda, it鈥檚 pretty good looking and the specs back it up.

You're right. Very nice specs 馃憤

It's a good looking watch, but nothing about it stands out from the pack imo.

I know it's like comparing apples and oranges, but as I'm currently looking at Dan Henry due to @chronotriggered recently throwing its temptation into my path, I think I'd rather have a 1964 for 250 USD聽

Not guilty.

I told you it was a watch. So did @chronotriggered

I even went so far as to as it was a Baltic.

No flies on us two you know.聽

True. I did say it was a watch. It鈥檚 uncanny鈥

This is beautiful. But as stated by @horologuitarist 聽above, it doesn't really stand out with the all the other tricompax releases lately. I want a Baltic watch at some point though, and this really nice looking.聽

I think it's great Baltic is taking the Tricompax design and releasing a non-limited edition with both the panda and reverse panda designs. It keeps the Peter Auto limited edition special, but offers the same design and quality build for all who want one. I think the price is a fair price.

The Dan Henry references are great examples of a modestly priced quartz alternative that are built really well and look fantastic.

When it was released a couple of years ago, I plumped for the 1962 Racing Chronograph with the Seiko VK63 mecaquartz movement...it was very reasonably priced at $285...
