But since when did need have anything to do with it? This is Styleforum, dude! And a thread of thousands of pages all about buying mechanical anachronisms. This isn't about need. This is about buying shit we don't need because we look at it by ourselves and say "ha, cool!". And share it with complete strangers on the internet.
I think it's reasonable to put a weird machine that turns your unworn unnecessary watches around to keep them wound while you're able to wear only one of them and keep it wound, apart from when you wind them manually just for fun to feel what winding them feels like, in the same category of fun.
This place is weird. I like it. I'm going to buy another watch. And maybe a winder.post #39157 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:16ampost #39158 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:20am
Well said tifosi and Mimo.
While I perceive winders to be a pointless waste of money for anyone who doesn't have a safe full of perpetual calendars (and frankly, fall short of "need" for those who do) - if they make you happy, by all means buy a dozen of them and go to sleep smiling.
If setting and winding a premium mechanical timepiece is a significant inconvenience to you, then I congratulate you on your spectacularly soft life. Now, go summon your man-servant to brush your teeth for you.post #39159 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:24ampost #39160 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:27ampost #39161 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:36ampost #39162 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:37ampost #39163 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:48ampost #39164 of 4831212/22/14 at 5:49amQuote:Originally Posted by academe
The date display preference is subjective/aesthetic. My Grand Reverso Duo has a similar date display, with a placement at 12 o'clock and I think it works well:
I prefer the 12 o'clock placement to the one at 3 o'clock as is used for IWC Pilot Mark XVII, or the Cartier Calibre. The 12 o'clock placement curves nicely with the top of the dial, and reminds me of an arch or other architectural feature. It also balances out the seconds sub-dial at 6 o'clock, and hence adds balance to the watch.
Academe, nice watch but that get up together with the Filson is crying for a Rolex.post #39165 of 4831212/22/14 at 6:19amQuote:
Just curious: are you saying that the onus is put on the customer to be aware of a company's distribution agreement impositions and as such, an (unknowing) 'violation' thereof can mean that the customer has to pay the 'penalty' and hand over the goods?
