Is there a good wristwatch forum...

Postby koimaster » October 14th 2017, 11:22am

Too bad watchgeeks is dead. He sounds like he would have fit right in.

I'm looking at buying a new wristwatch. But there are so many brands that I can't see straight.

I'm looking to spend $200-$300 for an "everyday" watch. I have dress watches, a stop watch, and a Swiss dive watch.

It seems that some have Swiss parts, making a Swiss movement and are Swiss made; some have Swiss parts for a Japanese movement; and some have Japanese parts for a Japanese movement. I'm not sure what it all means. Are there big differences between Seiko, Citizen, and Bulova? How's Skagen (which is what I usually wear now)? I have a Seiko outlet near me that has some really good prices, so that's a plus.

Where can I go to get help from people who won't tell me to save up until I have $4000 for a Rolex?

Thanks

Well, apparently, the site is primarily for discussions about one single model of Fender electric guitars.

I've hung out with my share of musicians - hell, way more than my share - so I can't get upset. More like the daily shrugging of my shoulders I as forced to do for 15 years.

It's even more than that. It's a discussion about Telecaster reissues, so I guess if you own an original, or a Squier Tele, or indeed any other model Tele (I quite like the Aerodyne, although in some extreme "purist" circles that probably marks me out as some kind of hateful cunt), you can bugger off to one of those heathen "generalist" forums that normals go to :D
