1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    All trash. I can't believe you are considering knock-offs. You haven't been in these forums long, and it appears you have misread what they are about. They are about style; style obtained from the self confidence you bring as well as what you say by what (and how) you are wearing. Wearing a knock-off time piece reveals a whole lot more about your character than you might think (or even want to admit).


    This is dangerous territory. Cheap is a relative term. If you're looking for a quality vintage timepiece, you are unlikely to find one cheap. You're question indicates that you not knowledgeable about vintage and used timepieces, so my advice is to save your money and buy new from a reputable dealer; you're more than likely to get burned.

    Thanks a lot. Yeah, I'm a newbie in watches and wanted to understand what made some of the vintage watches on ebay so cheap or what made some of them so expensive.

    ETA are Swiss movements. A speed master for 1.4k-1.6k and datejust for 2.5k? I hope you're talking euro because I've never seen prices like that in US dollars

    I have the same watch (and I love it). I kept the OEM Nylon Strap on mine, but dig the nato as well.

    The watch can be found sometimes on overstock.

    The first watch is safe and versatile but boring. Watch 2.

    I doubt your credibility as a "snob" mainly because you sound like you're repeating whatever you've been reading in watch snob articles on askmen.
