  1. Its a wax. You can also get leather folded edges. Have a look at Camille Fournet website - I think they have some videos of how it is done.
  2. I think if you were to compare a top end strap from Camille Fournet et al to a Hiosh or other cheaper brand its not on the same level. You may not care or be willing to pay for the subtle difference, but it is there and some are willing to pay for it if they care, some are not. But as above you are not really paying for material, you are paying for time, investment and craftsmanship.
  3. From everything I can tell - I would think that your belt maker is making nothing or a loss. A few points here... Are the belts hand or machine stitched - the time taken for hand stitching is huge by comparison. The quality of the very best calf, alligator, croc straps is a cut above any belt I have seen for similar money. As an overall item I agree some belts are very, very good, but if you look/feel a small section it is unlikely to be as supple or consistent. Even if your belt makers 'costs' are only a £5 for the leather, buckle, lining, padding, stitching, edge wax etc, then that
  4. This is a real one. The devil is in the detail - if its not detailed and crisp in every way then its not real.
  5. My Navitimer 01 is unreal - consistently +0.5 sec a day.... and yes I do check every day! [emoji2] Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  6. I can't help myself, but the navitimer and speed master must be on the list. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  7. This is a perfect example of how we all find pleasure in our watches differently.... personally they go on the wrist and get worn to death, making me smile several times a day. If you like to view your collection as a whole and that makes you smile then good for you [emoji41] Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

  9. Why not just ask him to regulate as best as he can in addition to the stem repair? Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  10. So we see a big deal made of COSC cirtification, and a lot of people asking score regulation etc... I'm interested in what most people will expect, and what what they feel is acceptable at each price point? For example, I recently bought my brother a Hamilton which was not cosc, but consistently 6s fast on the wrist. I regulated it and it's now consistently between 0 and +2 on the wrist. Some how I also have other more pricy watches which run worse, and much better.... What sort of experience have you had, and do you care?? Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

  12. It's only an issue when the boss asks why you're rubbing your watch on your face.... Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  13. Deployant clasps help a lot... I find clear shoe polish/wax does wonders. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  14. My biggest spend and my current daily wear [emoji2]
  15. I prefer using a deployant, and think they look neater too. However they can be more bulky with thick strap watches. I an useless at doing a normal buckle up with one hand... I'd be to worries about dropping that special watch on my hard kitchen tiles whilst the kettle boils..... Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
