  1. Morning, With its sterile dial, this late ‘20s or early ‘30s job could have been intended for any of a few end-users such as Services or Ingersoll. This effort is equally silent on its country of manufacture, but as it runs on a 13’’’ Thiel Divina, that country would have been Germany. Regards.

  29. .....yehhhhh Following a fun trip out on Friday afternoon to research my next piece i may have pulled the trigger today....and will probably need enough flowers for the other half to make the house look like a funeral (ironically) So here goes! The thought process. I have 2 sports watches in my Speedmaster and Seamaster (Sports Watch box ticked...dont need any more), i have 2 pilots/ vintage styled watches in my Oris Big Crown and Zenith Type 20 (Pilots/ vintage watch box ticked...dont need any more) I dont like having watches that overlap, id rather have a small but varied collection in style, colour, movements, brands and country of origin. So now im looking for watches on the more dressy end of things. I narrowed my choices down to Glashutte Original and JLC, both brands that i admire greatly, they do some lovely pieces with incredibly high quality cases and movement. Tried on the Senator Sixties glacier blue dial in both Chrono and no date....absolutely stunning watches, the no date was more appropriate for me being a bit smaller, i then nipped next door and tried on a Rolex Datejust.....have to admit i was left dissapointed...it just did nothing for me..i just dont get the hype!. Then went to WOS and tried on the JLC Master series and Reverso. Again, i was a little disappointed, dont get me wrong the watches were absolutely stunning, finishing was incredible but they were just a little too bland for my taste. I think if the Reverso Tribute in blue sunburst was there it might have been a different story. I was just about to leave and on the way out got absolutely sucker punched by a pretty blue thing in the corner.....yehhhh. So when people say that you have to see Grand Seiko in the flesh to REALLY appreciate them, they weren't kidding! the finishing of the dial, case, was incredible. So.....Grand Seiko Skyflake....nice dress(ish) watch, Japanese, Incredible dial, Interesting spring drive movement, a brand i dont currently own and something i havent been able to get out of my head since Friday, despite trying on watches at 3 times the price point from AP, JLC, Rolex.... ...mine arrives tomorrow! Resistance is Futile?....yeh

  31. This is an interesting question which for me is very relevant of the watch community but less so at this forum in particular. I see the rules and themes of the wider watch community reflected here but in a far softer and honest way. I don't see the snobbery here that I dislike elsewhere such as the toxic dumpster fire which is the comments section on Hodinkee where one rarely sees an honest opinion, and the firing squad that is Watchuseek where I think some people would come to blow debating the colour of an Orange. These themes of the community that I see are: * G-Shocks are cool but Swatch gets overlooked * We wish quartz snobbery didn't exist but it does.....and we feel it.....and that's the way it is right now (I hope it changes one day). It really is daft though - even today, if there's no quartz, there's no watch industry - an inconvininent truth (shown less so on this forum as there's a lot of love for quartz here) * Chinese manufaturers pushing out stainless steel automatics for £50 is the Emporer's new clothes moment and we're still in the crowd not wanting to here it * Rolex is a bubble that will burst, but probably not soon due to Asian market growth. It makes no sense that Omega's are cheaper and you could buy one this morning. That will undergo correction at some point The one I really don't understand is movement snobbery? Pride in a high quality piece of engineering is one thing but I really don't understand why Miyota, Seagull, Sellita, Seiko, ETA get abused along the way. Not buying a watch you really like because it have a different movement (which still performs reasonably well) seems bizarre to me?

  33. No way, that is the best dial, it's pure Unobtanium! Meanwhile, because it was ten pas ten, and therefore auspicious for a photo. This is a very good watch, especially now I have changed the hands, it has the vaunted 200m EB factory tested WR, but without the screw-down crown. Probably wouldn't survive the depths safely navigated by the Holton, but adequate nonetheless. Domed sapphire crystal, solid spring bars, solid bar pin buckle, here transferred to a very chunky Geckota strap - it wears more like a bracelet and I give it the little finger gap. It would be perfect if it had 24 hr time on the rehaut, i.e. numerals 13 to 24, like the Holton. There is something going on with the rehaut, with dots on the even hours, and a triangle at 12, but it's a bit too subtle. But good enough to be my daily wearer, and I could happily sell all my other watches. Well, most of them. Maybe a couple, anyway. HAGD
