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.
