Alright, I just ordered this Jacques Lemans Men's Geneve Animus Collection Watch.

Amazon says it's a quartz movement but everything I find says it's a Swiss automatic. (going by the model number listed.)

It's a 37mm tonneau shape that should wear like a 44mm.

Alligator strap w/dual deployant.

$286 with the 25% off.

We'll see what comes in the mail.

It's a very nice looking dress watch.

Check it out.

I love that shape...I have several Tonneau shaped watches and enjoy them. Even sent my dad one for his 75 birthday a few years back...one I had purchased in NYC at Trump Towers. My dad loves to wear it to church...says he always gets compliments on the watch.

very nice.
If it comes and is not the same model number listed I assume you will send it back right?
Did you try to email the seller before buying?

It's from Amazon. They've got the 25% off thing going on.

And we all know how accurate their descriptions are.

If it comes as a quartz (like it's listed) it goes back.

$286 is way too much for a quartz.

But if it comes as the Swiss auto and plays as the size I think it will I'll keep it cause it's a deal. (even if it's only the CL-888)

The Jacques Lemans site says this is a Swiss auto with a msrp of $1495 (fwiw)

I hope that you get the auto! :c

In any case, it's a beautiful watch!


BTW: typically the JL auto versions will state something about "Automatic" on the dial . . .
I know what you mean. :b

I was going by the model number given on their description.

I know it's a crap shoot but what the hey.

I actually think this is coming in tomorrow. Geez, took long enough. I could get a watch here from Hong Kong faster. Amazon ships from Kentucky about four hours away. I could have drove down to pick it up.

Isn't that the truth. I think Amazon uses the slowest shipping out there. I'm looking forward to your review of this one TC. Hopefully you get the auto version.
