Re: Enjoyable harmless hobby or expensive addiction?

The more stuff you own, the more stuff owns you.

Re: Luxury watches...worth it?

Mechanical watches stopped being a necessity and became a luxury when quartz watches became generally available at low prices. As an expression of human creativity and love of art and beauty they are priceless. If they are that then i agree, if they are the same old eta 2824 or seiko/myota auto kno...

Re: 10x the price... Worth it?

Nope. For one the Oris is stuck on an Oris strap, no choice. 2, money loss is far less on the Orient come resale. 3, once its been on the wrist for a few years you forget the quality and the original purchase price and just appreciate it for what it is....something that tells the time. 4. You can ma...

Re: How Careful / Paranoid Are You About Wearing Your Best / Most Treasured?

Sold all my prissy, luxury crowd pleasers due to having a toddler and being a biker, just can't wear them without devaluing them or feeling like they can't take the punishment. Why? Is your toddler a watch thief? :) And what does being a biker matter? The watch will be tucked away under your bike j...

Re: Wagstaff Watches

The only British thing is maybe the logo. The watch itself is an uncustomised model picked out of a Chinese catalogue for anyone to sell under their own name.

£95 makes this very expensive for what it is and how cheap you can get other stuff exactly like this.

Re: Quartz grwatch suggestions (not Christopher Ward)
