  1. Re: ETA will start reducing movement deliveries to competitors

    ETA has always and will also continue to do so in the future: Produce so called " in-house" movements for anyone who wants one, providing the customer is willing to pay and order a certain amount....

    Re: replicas

    A lot of the replica sites use pictures of the genuine product in their ads and sales sites which are different to the actual product they sell. Also, some of the fake watches originate from the...
  5. Re: ETA will start reducing movement deliveries to competitors

    Totally agree, there are some good alternatives out there now. The ones you mentioned in the ETA letter are the Swiss products but there are also a few others in development in Germany and France. I...
  6. Re: ETA will start reducing movement deliveries to competitors

    Swatch Group controls the market; prices are going to go up a lot and they can as ETA is fully booked. They are increasing capacity a little too every year. Now that they are only supplying fully...

    Re: Isofrane arrived

    Looks well on your Ploprof. They are very good quality no question but what makes it worse in my opinion is that they are sold in direct distribution at that price. And the company that uses the name...

    Re: What's the big FUSS

    I had the opportunity a couple of years back to inspect and try on a Patek Philippe Sky Moon Celestial Grand Complication. If I had the spare cash that would be the one Patek I would buy.

    Re: Any Credor fans or owners for that matter?

    Had a chance last year to have a look at these in Japan. This model is particularly very nice and understated. Not like some of the more fashion Credors. Same as on all Grand Seiko their movements...

    Just a bit too big for my wrist though :wink:
  12. Re: KIngston quick and dirties!!! Update...........

    Had no crown issues at all with my Kemmner 007, a very well made watch. Another thing to consider is that crowns should not be over tightened.

    Re: Cost over Quality 'vs' Quality over Cost?

    The Citizen Crystron 4 Mega claimed 3 seconds per year; and the current Chronomaster 5 seconds per year. But only when these watches are worn at least 12 hours a day. And in my experience with the...

    Try to look at it this way; watches are not here to tell time any more. Problem solved?

    Switzerland is a great place for sightseeing and holidays in the mountains; food, efficient and great service, quality in their hotels and restaurants. Its not a place for buying watches or shopping...

    Re: Opinions On Bell & Ross

    They have some nice offerings, not the fashion watches, but they do some very well built tools that show up once in a while at very good prices. I agree that at list price they tend to be expensive....

    Re: Helson vintage 50 fathoms hommage

    I would be very surprised if this was a set up. The issue there is the way this watch (and many others too) are designed and constructed by the case maker and the lack of quality control during...

    Re: Helson vintage 50 fathoms hommage

    Sometimes its better to do things slow and make sure they are perfect on the inside and not just on the surface. Looking at the pictures on WUS it is not the first time I have seen this rather faulty...

    Re: Isofrane heads up

    While the Isofrane is of very good quality no doubt; it is also a big rip off. 1100% mark up in direct internet trading is a rip off in my books and no matter how good it is I would not touch it. My...
