Rolex have prodcued dross like this too.
But that one is no way as cool with its fake skeleton dial. Look at the rainbow tourbillion and really study how freakingly cool the true skeletonized movement is, nice touch with the Hublot micro rotor acting as the logo on the dial.
Waste of time Jim, people LURVE to hate Hublot. In fact, they are the new TAG Heuer.
I knoooow, I best keep the Hublot love in the dm's with you and Charlie
I'm not surprised Charlie is a Hublista, you can tell his taste is questionable every time he posts that Pistachio abomination.
Old man, now you isn't be makin sense. You sayin Hublot is questionable taste?
Well... some of Hublot's designs are a little 'challenging' for sure. Like this, whatever it is supposed to be?
I mean I guess you can read the time on it, once you get used to it... the chronograph, not so much
That's funny, I will never look at this watch the same
Breitling have just released
Shelby, Corvette & Mustang Special Edition Chronograph Models.
Blue / Red / Green
Photos or it didn't happen
Not bad from your mate Georges Kern..
I will think about it, haven't decided if I like them or not. If only Kern could leave Breitling so I can become a fan of them again!
Your hate for Him makes me laugh.
Don't ever change Jim.
They look like something from Kickstarter that didn’t quite make it
Great thoughts on the in-house movement scams across the watch industry
Yes, good read. Personally, I don't care much whether all the parts are 100% made "in house" or not, but more important is the fact that it's been designed with a certain quality and performance in mind and then executed according to that brand's specification and price-point. I'd much rather a manufacturer went outside and bought a hairspring from a specialist/expert and then incorporated into their own movement provided that it was for the right reasons and the quality was assured.
Certainly, I don't expect my Tudor MT movement to have Patek levels of finishing, and I was already aware it was a collaboration with Breitling. What matters to me more is the fact that Tudor have specced it well, worked enough on the movement to ensure it's the right quality for the watch and executed it (with specialist suppliers if need be) to ensure good levels of finishing, accuracy and reliability. And I do think that's worth paying a bit more for compared to a refinished, off the shelf movement from ETA.
Maybe the general public at large won't be as aware of all this, but many won't know or care what in-house means anyway.
