ernest, do you honestly think it costs more to make a Calatrava than say, a Sea Dweller?  And if it does, do you think that accounts for the $7000 difference in price between the two watches?
Do you think it cost more to make a SD than a Seiko ? And if it does, is the difference of $4000 or 35 times more?
Actually it does cost more to make a mechanical Sea Dweller than a quartz Rolex, which I am assuming is what you are discussing.  The Grand Seiko Spring Drive is about the same price as the Sea Dweller FWIW. BTW, I never said that a Rolex, or any high end watch, was a good value.
Stop with your grand Seiko. The equivalent by Seiko of the SD is the diver's 200 which is at 250$ Why are you talking about quartz? And? Where did I said you said such a thing?

Êtes-vous dans l'amour avec moi? Vous continuez à me discuter.
Do you like my cufflinks? Stunning. Aren't they? Nice with my watch

Les cufflinks sont gentils. L'homme les portant est dans le goût douteux.

Among watch aficionados Grand Seiko is known to be one of the best brands. Seiko sought to produce a watch that is superior in every way to any Swiss watch. Most of their best models are not exported. Vintage models are beautiful. Sometimes it's good to look beyond the label. Note there are hard core collectors: seiko forum

As you can see the watch is not as small as you think it is :

My streategy = to buy different : - shape (oval, square, rectangle, circle), - different metal (white gold, pink gold, steel) - different color of dial (black, blue, grey, champagne) - different brands (Omega, Patek, JL, Cartier, Boucheron, B&M) - different strap (steel, bleu croco, black croco, brown croco, black box) In order to be able to match my clothes my watches and my cufflinks. I guess without a nice watch, it is impossible to be well dressed as something is missing...

Ta guele esti d' fif mon tabarnack... I can't say that in english so I'll say it in French. You probably didn't learn those words at Sorbonne however. Anyways guys, why are you still arguing with him? I read the first 6 pages then skipped ahead to the 17th, and nothing has changed. You're just fuelling his obsession with controversy. Just let him rot in the corner, as long as HE knows that he's a fraud. No point in wasting your life trying to convince someone that they are something they themselves know better than anyone else.

Actually I was heavily involved in import performance prior to this job and was doing some professional drag and road course events. I do dive as well, but I don't think it's necessary to dive to wear dive watches. I personally wear sport/dive watches most of the time because I like the look, regardless of their intended purpose. I'm not saying the Patek is too small but even midsize watches are small on me. My original 1986 Tag F1 looks like a toy on my wrist. Of your watches I like the JLC the best.

Thanks for coming, now you can go back from where you come... Are your all 50 messages as interesting as this one or have you made a special effort for me?

But you are not the center of the univers. You can judge a watch without imagining it on you. Just the watch. Not you.

Indeed but at least not wear it with a suit as you look it looks tacky. For casual with a leather jacket it can be nice. With a suit it looks like a farmer who is dressed up to go to church...

Umm, I'm not imagining myself larger or smaller than I am, small/midsize sport watches look small on my wrist, it's not that hard to understand. I evaluate watches on whether I personally like them or not. I don't think we're covering any new territory on this thread, so I'm done. You have a nice collection of watches, go enjoy them.

I know I need a sport watch for casual, may be a Rolex GMT but with leather strap

O, so one's amount of messages is indicative of the quality of their posts? Figures. A dumb uneducated pleb like yourself invariably values quantity over quality.
