I have tried Ercole and was happy for awhile. His service appears to have deteriorated significantly over the past year, and I have no desire to stick w/ him.
Thanks, guys. dw: I've tried Chipp - his trousers were awful. I had trousers made a few years ago from Mina that turned out quite well - sad to hear that their quality / fit has fallen away as well.
Can anyone recommend a good maker of bespoke trousers in the NY area for around $500 - $700 / pair (other than Ercole)? The traveling SR folks do a good job, but they're now upto 1K GBP for trousers!
Ah, gotcha - thanks. I'll leave it open for a bit and then share the make / model.
That's not a tri-compax. This is counter-intuitive, but a tri-compax has four sub-dials.
Sorry, mimo - not trying to be combative, but I genuinely don't know what the above means. The question as posed is simply if the movement in question is well finished (as people say Dufour or Kari or Datographs are).
Thanks, tiger. Anyone else? Much like elsewhere we've got responses ranging from mediocre to excellent, which again leads me to believe that 'finishing' is still a nebulous concept for most people.
There appears to be a lot of (often unnecessary) debate on watch forums on what constitutes good finishing. In my opinion, it's often a misunderstood topic. Take a look at the movement below - one respected watch nerd contends that it's very well finished, and worthy of acclaim. Another bigwig in the watch world has termed it 'mediocre'. I have my own (strong) opinion on the matter, but given the polarizing views, curious to see what the WISs at SF think:
Does anyone know where one can purchase a Hermes watch strap? I see quite a few nice ones on Instagram, but weirdly enough, the store on Madison doesn't offer them.
Hmm,. he mentions MTM and not bespoke?
