Sorry, I am just getting a little irritated with this silly man. I do not mean it personally. However, I am against this guys watch knowledge.
FREDERIQUE PIGUET, you should know it or what means you do not know what you buy (as some Cartier/PACHA had a Piguet....)

Ernest, I have concluded that you are just a pathetic Frenchman, and there is no point to pursue this any further. If you want to argue, then do not do so with me, whilst making childish comments on Diamonds. Moreover, if you were of a decent social/economical standing, and a European as you claim to be, I am sure that you would share my views on Diamonds. Notwithstanding the fact that you judge a watch by whether or not is has diamonds, instead of its looks, is really telling you something. Explain to me how knowing who has made my movement, is more important than knowing how it works, which you clearly have absolutely no idea about. I too could make immature comments on the French, but that would not be me. I too could make comments on the French in business (hence the closure of all my French operations) (not that I believe you are French) but that too would be childish. I am still eager to know what a PACHA is? About your FP, firstly it is not written on my Pasha, so how should I know, secondly, do you want me to waste my time on finding out rubbish like that? Secondly, WHAT IS JEAGER?

Now I write the same post in your english ernest, i am knowing that you are sill and french being. so i cannot go on. if you are wanting to be argue, not with me if possibnule, you keep saying little things on the subject of the diamond. it also is that you see only the damond and not the true looking of the watch. Tell to me now, that it is movmnets which is more importanmt in the knowlgede of such, that hoqw it operates, because you sont know taht. i can also be stupid about french people, but i am not soing such an action. i can also make comments of french in firms, so i close all my frnch companies. but i still cant see if you are the true french, because i no it not. i want to know waht PASHA is about FREDERIQUE PIGET, ]name is not on my PACHA so how can i know, wasting time is not with me, number two what being is Jaeger Le Coultrre

Gentlemen, I implore you, please cease and desist with your point-counterpoint attacks. Nothing will ever be resolved. May I suggest that this matter be dropped in favor of greener pastures? Jon.

Ernest, May I also say, from reading your previous posts, I have realised that your argument is based purely on jealousy.

How do you managed to buy such expensive watches? I want to take the same way.
Also the fact that you call Vacheron lesser known, provides great evidence of the lack of knowledge which you have. (Oh dear, my English is deteriorating to the level of yours.)

Okay, I'm not the moderator, but I think that this thread should end here. When the invective starts, it can't go anywhere but down. Let's make a gentlemen's agreement to not knock others' poor language skills (especially when the other party is clearly not a native English speaker), masculinity (diamonds can look pretty damn good on the right guy), or socio-economic standing (I know a guy living on disability who is a prince, and a fairly well known Hollywood player who is a complete and utter asshole.)

I own this vintage Heuer Camaro, which looks great and keeps better time than any of my other mechanical watches.
Wow, that's a bitchin' Camaro. But seriously, very nice watch. What is the quality level of the old Heuers? Comparable to anything?
To answer the question you raised before the food fight started, Heuer has a long association with motor sports, so I can only assume the build quality of the older models is quite good.  They generally use a Valjoux movement, which is a very reliable and easy to service workhorse of a movement.  I have been very happy with my watch.  Of course there are maintenance issues with a 30-40 year old watch, but nothing that a competent watch repairer couldn't handle.

Is that more Expresso?

Cartier is first, and foremost an haute joaillier in the same vein as the other ateliers who produce watches like Boucheron, Chaumet, Van Cleef & Arpels. Their ventures into watches was that they wished to expand their luxury offerings, and that it was a reaction to the growing chicness of timepieces. As to who created the first wristwatch it is a somewhat debatable point but many state it was Abraham Louis Breguet who was commissioned by Caroline Murat, sister of Napoleon, and the Queen of Naples to create a wacth to be worn on the wrist. And yes Dufour certainly creates a fantastic watch which is completely handmae, even the buckles, and screws. However there is a waiting list for his Simplicity watch. Much like an alligator Hermes Birkin for the watch connoisseur. Or Berluti's. Is this not a nice way to wear diamonds?

OK Guys- let's knock off the mud-slinging...

We might cut Ernest some slack: he really can't help that he is consumed by envy.  If you look back over the several months that he has graced our company, he has on a number of occasions taken exception to statements made by others.  I guess I somewhat rankled him over a thread that had to do with the number of shirts purchased yearly.  Ernest becomes very defensive when claims are made by others that suggest that they have something, namely money and privilege, that he lacks...and which I, too, lack in any substantive quantity.  I've learned that the best way to deal with Ernest is to not deal with Ernest at all.  Kalra, when you said that Ernest's motivation for being nasty was envy, you hit the nail on the head.  I've given my two cents only because this was a good thread gone unnecessarily bad.

You are wrong... I respect and like rich people because they are often intelligent, so I am NOT jalous at all I just want to know how they manage to become rich and try to do the same thing. WHAT does show in this tread I may be jalous ? I would'nt wear watches with diamond . NOT even if you PAY me to wear such a watch and give me it as gift.
