    Do RM designers get paid by the function/colour/guff they put on each dial I wonder?

    Maybe working on the theory- if you have enough monkeys bashing on enough typewriters one will eventually produce a novel?

    So this 'Timepiece Gentleman' thing is interesting... one less douchey watch salesman is no bad thing.

    Just picked this story up today as well. I had never heard of these guys before, but having watched a couple of their videos it doesn't look like anything I'd ever be interested in. I feel sorry for those that have lost money, though. And they absolutely have - having recently raised $2m from their subscribers to fund a new store, you'd have to be a bit naive to think anything other than these guys have done a runner with the money and all their "on consignment" stock.

    It takes many years on waiting lists (if you're lucky) to get your hands on watches these guys pick up every day. Another reason to believe that watch scarcity is mostly nonsense. These guys get their watches from ADs that make more money selling to flippers than to watch enthusiasts at retail. Watchmakers are allowing and even enabling this industry to thrive.

    Holy cow! How can it be so cheap? If TAG is looking to charge 10k for the Carrera within two years, Zenith need to up their prices soon so customers know and understand Zenith is a more luxurious name.

    Yes, this just shows that TH's "accessible luxury" moniquer is becoming a thing of the past.

    Another useless, unreadable dial:

    I don't know how old a model this is though.

    This is quite nice, do they do it on a rubber strap? I'm guessing not.
