Hmmm.... It says Max has been a member since July 15, 2021... Maybe that's the start date?

TwiceTollingClock commented on When you are buying a watch does the movement matter?

I am a neophyte watch collector. But I have been doing a lot of reading. (Including some deep dives into various rabbit holes here on the WC.) And in my mind, no matter what type of movement (quartz or mechanical) it has to be reliable and well thought of. For instance, the Seiko NH35A, or the Miyota 9015, etc. Because when it comes down to it, at least for me, looks are secondary to function. That being said, I try to find a nice-looking watch with a good movement, so that I can have my cake and eat it, too. 馃槑

My two cents--Tudor is a Rolex brand. They pride themselves on precision and extreme levels of quality. There is no way on God's green earth that I would let this matter pass. If you have to go to another AD, I would do so, and let your old AD know that THIS was the reason you switched.

I appreciate your advice, and I will take it under careful consideration. I have looked at Timex before, and you're right, they have a long tradition of building good watches. I really admire their Waterbury line. But for now, I must cut my comments short, because it's after 2:00, and I have to work in the morning. 馃ぃ Goodnight to you, sir. 馃ケ馃槾

TwiceTollingClock commented on Help Me Decide...

The main reason I chose these watches is that I wanted to expand the scope of my collection, to include a range of watches, from inexpensive, to affordable, and up to higher end, very expensive pieces; I did some research, and all of these watches have good movements, which is the true soul of a useful watch.聽

The idea that I had was to find a few more good watches that I could obtain without breaking the bank. My current collection is 3 watches, which doesn't give me a lot of options, in terms of variety. I figured 7 watches would be kind of a "lucky number."

Future additions to my collection will be more expensive, higher-end watches, which will take longer to save up for and acquire. So in the meantime, I could have a few lower-end and mid-range watches to experiment with. 馃檪

TwiceTollingClock commented on How much do you think the build cost of a $5k (at retail) luxury watch is?

I don't drink many sodas; I prefer sparkling water, like Pellegrino. But my kids are another story, haha. 馃槑
