    Sell Milgauss + AT for the Geophysic

    In a bit of a dilemma. I love the new JLC Geophysic, but the only way I can afford it is by selling the Milgauss + Aqua Terra Skyfall from my collection.

    Given that the JLC is a limited edition and is getting harder to obtain, is it worth the sacrifice?

    AT:


    Milgauss:


    Geophysic:

    Is the JLC a nice piece. Yes i'd say very much so.

    Is it worth sacrificing the very popular Blue skyfall (rare old style AT) and the Milgauss? Nope, not for me. Too much of a sacrifice in my book.

    No.

    Both the Aqua Terra and Milgauss are distinctive and versatile watches. The JLC is a bit plain, generic at best, and confused at worst. Such a dressy look, ruined with that vintage lume that looks as out of place on that watch as Betty White at a Kanye concert. Is it a sport watch? It's too dressy. Is it a dress watch? It's too sporty.

    The sport watch is a tough segment to do well; it requires gymnast-like balance. And in my opinion, the JLC can't stand on the balance beam without falling off.

    Limited edition or not, the JLC just doesn't work for me. I feel like you could probably get a similar aesthetic elsewhere for less, and on a watch that isn't as confused as the Geophysic.

    As much as I try to like the geophysic,I still prefer the dial of the milgauss you own,at least it knows its identity as a sport watch,not sort of hermaphrodite like the geop,it is limited for a reason...I guess

    If you could sell only the Milgauss, I'd say go for it. That could be easily replaced down the road. The AT is not so easily replaced, but it would be easier to find than another Geophysic.

    I like the looks of the Geophysic and would love the opportunity to jump on one. The one for sale on the other forum looks like an attractive price.

    No- I don't get the lume on the JLC either. You have a couple of keepers there.

    Not for me it isn't. The JLC is nice enough, but it doesn't 'light me up' in any way (I don't get the lume, either).

    I agree, keep what you have. Both are very nice watches.

    The geophysic is overpriced in my opinion. I don't really care about limited editions so there you go. Even though I'm also not a fan of either the milgauss or the at, still...I wouldn't do it, if I were you.
