Your definitely right that at this price I am picking for looks. However, I'm sure there are plenty of watches around this price that are of fair quality, are durable and can keep time, as well as plenty that are complete junk. I was hoping to get a sense of whether the watches I posted are the former or the latter.

Good call on the poor mans watch thread. I see there is some discussion of Daniel Wellington in there. The opinion seems to be that they're decent quality for the price.

Thanks

Is that due to "security concerns"?

My sentiments as well. I think KW is filling a niche for people who want a simple dress watch but don't care about what's inside the watch or the brand.

Careful, careful. As a proud Southern Italian we do grate at the exaggerated dangers of Napoli. Mostly stereotyping by Northerners. Milano is far and away the most dangerous city in Italy but still pretty safe by North American standards.

Ever seen the documentary Gomorrah or Pickpocket king on Nat geo, it doesn't seem like it was grasped out of thin air.

Canada must have changed a lot since I was last there if you think that Naples > Milan >> Anywhere in North America (unless your comparison is Cuidad Juarez rather than US of A / Great White North).

Well Gomorrah is about criminal syndicates, do we portray all of New York or LA as incredibly dangerous places because of The Godfather or Colors?

Even the makers of PickPocket King admit the editing of the movie (controlled by National Geographic) made Napoli look alot worse than what it is. Yes, theft is a major issue but it is a big city no worse than many others and actually rates as a low/medium threat compared to US cities of similar size. And yes, Milano has a major pickpocket problem too, identical and in some areas worse than Napoli but you rarelly if ever hear of it.

Violent crime directed at the average person is still very low in all of Italy compared to the US and even Canada.

Much of what is said is based on urban legends and stereotyping and I would not want to be the subject of that now would any of you. I am simply saying it is over done with little if any hard evidence to back it up.

Sorry to derail the intent of the thread. Back to beautiful watches.
