Some thoughts:

1.) Fake Tourbillon's look terrible, I'm not sure why some of these companies clutter up what is otherwise an attractive affordable automatic watch with a fake tourbillon.

2.) Vintage restored is definitely the way to go if you don't mind spending the time.

3.) These Seiko Automatics look really good for the money, I can't believe I don't own one.



I have a Tag F1 Chrono as my daily. I just got it back from Tag Factory Resto, as it flooded when I was in a POOL. Lame.

Good thing I got it for free, lol. Company gimme from a merger.


I like watches too much and so I try to avoid looking at them, posting about them, or entertaining their purchase. I don't want to wake up next to a Ulysse Nardin and a credit card bill like a bad one night stand.

What on earth is a fake tourbillon? Are you confusing open hearts with a tourbillon?

Seiko is the Allen Edmonds of watches. I wear both.

At least a Carrera isn't.

Ordered mine off ebay still waiting delivery. (Seemingly quite a decent movement)

I'll let you know.

I really like those gant watches but can't seem to find them anywhere in the us, anyone know how i could get one of them? I tried ordering from the uk amazon site but they wont ship to the us, any ideas?

Some nice looking stuff on that manbush site. Anyone speak to the longevity/quality of those pieces?

I'm liking some of the Seikos posted previously, but somehow the Seikos I see in my local stores are never as nice as the ones you guys post in this thread and others like it.

At any rate, this thread has got me pumped to visit Wako in the Ginza where I can finally see some of these poor-man's Seiko beauties in person!
