Very cool! I hope the chamfers are crisp and the movement is a smooth sweep 😆

Lol, I have very sweet in-laws. Started dating their daughter as a teenager and 20 years and two kids later I guess they still think of me that way 😆

With a family to support, I don’t spend earnings from my job on watches. I just save my Christmas and birthday money and spend that, guilt free.

It usually means I can buy a cheap digital whenever I want and then maybe a Seiko 5, or I can save for a couple years and get a decent microbrand, which is what I’m doing now.

Gotcha, that totally makes sense. That type of marketing (combined with what they charge) is what turns me off to Shinola. Transparency matters.

I promise I’m not trolling, I’m genuinely curious. What’s the difference between a Dartmouth brand and Lorier (shown in your avatar)? Both are 100% made in China and sold under a different country’s flag. Is it the size of the company that makes it feel different?

I like some of Lorier and Traska’s designs but I can’t pull the trigger because they lean into Chinese labor so hard.

Bracelets- Hot or Cold Weather Accessory?

I am of the mindset that the bracelets get worn in the hot months and replaced by leather in the cold ones but I’ve heard others say the reverse lately. Where do you stand?
