1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I would say the same of the U.S., Except for RGM. And I don't even think that he has a Tourbillon, and is that Chinese thing even authentic.

    That thing is hand-made by Kiu Tai Yu himself (which is why there are so few pieces made), and it is just as good as any of the watches made by the independent European watchmakers.

    I swear, I've logged in more times in the last week that I have in the last 6months.

    Good point. Two of the most celebrated, prestigious and expensive watchmakers in recent years aren't even Swiss: FP Journe of France and A Lange of Germany. The technical complexity, engineering precision and aesthetics far exceed comparable offerings from Patek, Breguet & Audemars, IMHO. Check them out: FP Journe and A Lange & Sohne
    Not to be contentious, but F.P.Journe is firmly ensconced in Geneva, Switzerland, where all of his watches are made. You'll see that on the very first page of his website.

    I am a marketer's nightmare and am not some curmudgeon; in fact, I am probably younger than you are.
    Curmudgeonry has nothing to do with age; I have been a curmudgeon since my teens. [​IMG]
