    I think Zenith as a brand is good value as a second hand purchase in the UK (and in the US). The models with the elite movements seem to be especially so, but also some of the El Primeros, with the...

    I've heard that it's quite hard to get hold of and there's a possible delay to get one, but I guess that's SOP nowadays. It's the first GS since the 'Peacock' that I've really liked. I think I read...

    I've always had the impression that Seiko saved their special dials for the Spring Drive and Hi Beat models and so I've always assumed there are small quality differences in other parts too, such as...

    I've not handled a Scurfa but from the look of those last pictures, I do like the look of the case. That is often where cheaper watches lose out, but from those pictures I'd say the Scurfa case...

    Fin seem to have a permanent 'sale' on. I haven't bought of any of theirs but have come close a few times. I did buy a strap for my Mark XV from De Griff straps. Given the relatively short lugs on...

    That's a lovely watch and a great suggestion, but the OP would be very lucky to find one in such fantastic condition.

    For some reason IWC seem to be a brand that people love to bash, particularly with the charge that the same products can be bought for less. I sort of understand this, but don't altogether agree with...

    The same thing is happening with independent brands generally. Patek now is just too pass.

    But as for the original question, I think the Lange is a watch that's really for wearing when you feel...

    Building a brand with ludicrously limited releases to generate hype and demand - it's the new way, and one that puts me off any brand that adopts it. Ming watches have something about them though...

    There's a decent piece from Jack Forster of Hodinkee about the new incarnation of Nivada Grenchen under the heading "The Rebirth Of Nivada Grenchen With New Versions Of The Chronomaster And Antarctic"

    It's true that quite a few watch enthusiasts have heard of Nivada Grenchen, but I have a feeling that that is primarily through the Chronomaster. The new owners of the brand have already re-issued...

    Funnily enough I think the brown limited edition is one of their best yet.

    I agree, their prices seem a little high, but their watches do seem to sell quite well and as you say, you rarely see...

    Beautiful watch but pretty flashy - for me it is now starting to look a bit like a Rolex, which I didn't think was the case with the steel versions.

    I'm happy to accept manufacturing realities too, but I do like to make an informed choice. Culturally, Switzerland is quite a secretive country and the Swiss watch brands are highly secretive. In...

    I'm with those that are mystified by the appeal of G-shocks. Of course for a few people they truly are a tool watch but for many others, they are simply offering a 'look', and are especially popular...

    Yes, there are an incredible number of new watch companies that have popped up in the last few years, and it's not just old brands being re-born. Honestly, I think most of these re-born brands as...

    This looks to be a very nice shade of green and the dial is textured too. I think this is beige lume rather than faux vintage and works well with the green. I'd definitely recommend the 40mm over...

    I think it's a nice watch but prefer the original 3705. In terms of the new IWC pilot chronographs, if you are not dead set on ceramic, I'm told by those who have seen it that the new green dialed...

    Just one other thing to bear in mind as a private seller is that Chrono24 makes it relatively easy for buyers to return a watch if they are not satisfied.

    Some of their designs are pretty hideous but yours isn't. I can't work out if the watch face is mirrored or see-through so that you see your own wrist. I would not be keen on the latter. The other...
