commented on Watch hands ยท

I like dauphine hands, but unfortunately most dauphine hands are for dress watches & rarely lumed. Plus i'm not a dress watch guy.

Since i'm more of a tool watches guy, my favs are arrow hands & sword hands.

Definitely not a fan of mercedes hands & snowflake hands, just not my cup of tea. Guess most Rolex & Tudor are not meant for me ๐Ÿ˜‚

commented on How much extra would you pay for brand heritage? ยท

Speaking for myself here.

My current income can't justify me getting any watches above certain figures.

I respect brand heritage but in the end the main reason i want a watch is for its design, dimensions & features.

So for my case, being the realistic cheapskate i am, i will most likely get affordable microbrand or chinese clomage. Brand heritage is simply non priority for me. It's nice to have (IF i can afford it), but not a must have.

I respect your choice for the middle ground, it's a very sound compromise considering you get a German made watch. I will definitely do the same if i can afford the Dekla, otherwise it's San Martin or other chinese clomage for me.

Fyi, aside from San Martin there's Escapement Time on Aliexpress that also made great type A & type B. I already sold several of them & never got any negative feedback from my buyers ๐Ÿป

commented on Which microbrand have you observed with the best quality in manufacturing? ยท

Spot on with the bezel action ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Another negative with the Ti version is the softness compared to stainless steel. I dropped mine on its first several days when changing straps from about 1 meter high, made a permanent dent on one of its lug's pointy end ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ’€

So just be careful & don't drop it on hard surface โŒ

Based on the watches i personally had/have:

Seiko = not impressed at all

Helm = totally awesome

Want to get a San Martin in the near future, read/saw lots of positive feedbacks about their build quality. I think if we talk about watches that hit above their weight then San Martin should come into consideration.

commented on Being a Watch Peeping Tom ยท

Same here! Just can't hold the urge.

Better than peeping on people, the only risk involved is getting broke due to impulsive buy ๐Ÿ˜Œ
