Re: New Kickstarter from Yema coming

I have a superman with Yema's in- house movement. I like the watch very much and the watch keeps good time although I have not scientifically tested the accuracy. I like Yema watches and particularly like the new flygraf. Was curious about these new watches. Having seen them I like the blue GMT very...

Proliferation of watch brands, Zero West Watches

Is the market for watches expanding because the number of kickstarters and small companies new to me seem to be proliferating. It might, of course, be the Covid effect. The more you test the more cases you discover! The latest to demand my attention is Zero West Watches based in Hampshire. Anyone he...

Re: The Practice of Selling NN as Brand New.

I have in the past bought cars that have been pre-registeted by the dealer. The car is essentially new with only delivery mileage. But I am regarded as the second owner on the registration document. The fact that the car has had two owners when I sell it is reflected in the price.

Re: Yema Flygraf Pilot

Congratulations. I like the watch a lot. I too have been looking at Yema watches. I have a Superman also with the in-house movement. It was this movement which attracted me in the first place. A bit different from the usual ETA/Selita movements. How it will perform in the long term remains to be see...

While not exactly a copycat, is this one merely an homage. 😁

Re: “You and Your Watches” - 10 questions

Galton 321 1. How did you become interested in watches, and when? I have an interest in the history of science and the age of enlightenment. Measurement was an important aspect so scientific instruments were an interest and this led to clocks and watches. I guess it started in my teens. 2. How did y...

Re: C60 Sapphire - New Release

I do not like skeleton watches and reading the build up was determined to dislike this watch. But, instead I really like it. Would I buy one? Don't know. Need to see one in the flesh or least a good photo. I suspect I would love owning it but probably wouldn't get much wrist time.

Re: High School Graduation Watch

Off the wall suggestion. If you son likes motorsport watches and doesn't mind quartz take a look at the Yema Rallygraf quartz collection. But I think they are only online so you may prefer something sourced in th US. I'm assuming you are in the US. There will probably be import duty. I've bought fro...

A new take on the dive watch???

This came into my inbox. Design company produced a new take on the dive watch it is claimed. Must say I like the clean design. Not bad price for a SW 200 powered mechanical. https://www.instrmnt.co.uk/collections/d-series

Re: Accuracy of your Quartz Chronometer?

If you are buying a chronometer, since you are paying extra for the privilege you should expect it to work as advertised. That said if you need to measure time within such tight tolerance maybe you need to pay a visit to the NPL and borrow their atomic clock.😊

Re: Dirty Dozen watches

Thank you for posting the link to the dirty dozen. I was surprised by the number of makers the government approached to supply the watches. There are some illustrious names there. I guess the least known of the bunch is Timor. I tried to find out more about this company but there is not much out the...
