(I know they probably have a wide price range - what is it?)

Brands to stay away from?

My son has a watch he likes. I'll ask him what it is and post a link here.

Re: Watch fetish

You are not wrong there.  A real awesome selection.  And reasonable price too.  Should have not clicked the link.  My paypal account's going to have a work out.  I hope they offer Pay after Delivery so the missus does not see me raiding the account.

Cheers,

And enjoy the wonderful background stories (entirely fictional of course) about some of the watches.

With the Salvo's ,iv'e figured out the wealthy area's shops are more expansive roll

Any recommendations on a quality mechanical watch brand?  Preferably reasonably priced...  lol

Raymond Weil aren't very highly thought of amongst the WUS guys who prefer their $15k Zeniths and Rolexes, but I wanted one ever since a friendly clerk let me try one on in a jewelery store when I was about 16. The Don Giovanni Cosi Grande they let me try on cost $4,995 and they knew there was no way I could afford it. For some reason they just don't hold their value though and about 18 months ago I picked one up for around $700 from the states when the exchange rate was nice.

I love it, auto chrono with a crystal back and the best AR sapphire I've seen on any watch including Brietlings and Rolexes that cost 5 times as much. If you bargain hunt you can get yourself a very nice swiss watch from them REALLY cheap compared with the RRP, I wouldn't buy new but if you can find one under $1k in good condition I'd highly recommend it.

Also pictured is it's little brother that I picked up a while ago, the dual time zone. Pictures are mine, using a manual focus macro set up. No post processing, they came out the camera that way because I got mad skills.

If you don't like square watches then have a look at their freelancer chrono or Nabucco (bit more expensive even second hand) in one of the special edition colours.

Re: Watch fetish

Some serious watch bling cool

The watchmaker that hand delivers its timepieces around the world

When it comes to offering good customer service, many may argue that luxury watchmaker Gronefeld goes a little over the top.

For whenever someone buys one of its timepieces, it likes to hand it over in person - no matter where the buyer is on the planet.

"When we sell a watch we always try to deliver our creation personally to the customer, regardless of where they are in the in the world," says co-founder Tim Gronefeld, 43.

"We visit them and organise a dinner or small event where we hand over the watch."

You might question how a little-known, family-owned Dutch company can afford such largesse, but as its watches cost as much as 170,000 euros ($188,000; £120,000) it can stretch to the airfares.
