commented on Choose your poison... Tissot vs Bulova ·

I would choose Lunar Pilot. Just because I like Bulova story better and to me it is classier. Otherwise either one is very good.

commented on As an enthusiast, How does your hobby extend outside of buying watches? ·

I have not been a student for a very long time, but I have to support a student so my finances are very limited also. But accumulating watches has not been my primary goal in the last year and a half that I got into this. I bought 2 watches for me to wear so far. But I'm learning a lot about watches by watching videos, taking on-line watchmaking courses, reading books and articles and participating in discussions about the subject. I also started to build my own watches from parts I get on eBay, Ali Express. I have built watches for myself, some members of my family and even donated a 4 of my builds to charity.

commented on Hey, which side are you on? Part 2 ·

I doubt I will own either one of these because there are more interesting and less expensive watches out there. But, if I had to choose, Nautilus would be my choice. I think it is more understated, classier watch. And I like PP better than I like AP.

commented on Which side are you taking? ·

I'm not into dive watches and Omega is my number one brand. But in this case I would choose Submariner because I just cannot stand that extra valve. If SMP did not have that hideous valve, it would have been my choice.

commented on Building watches & accuracy ·

Did you have to regulate those movements yourself or did they come already regulated. I find that I have to adjust them and then they are pretty good. I build my first one about a year ago, and wear it from time to time. It is still very good after a year.

commented on Saw this and had to share it ·

No, I would not.

commented on In which phase are U? ·

I'll be done when I'm done. And I'm not done yet.
