    On a daily basis.

    If you post, like, or hover a watch pic, they will hunt you.

    I didn't accept their invite; after browsing their website, I wasn't really interested in an Android phone encapsulated in an IWC Portuguesier imitation case.

    The Patek is far more beautiful, but its price makes it part of a very exclusive club.

    Yes the patek is more beautiful. But the price different is...much...in my opinion. Well, i am sure real patek collector wont need to talk about price comparison.
    For me between these two, of course the patek one is better. But the JLC one not far behind and the price make sense. I forgot to mention the rotor of the JLC is a gold rotor. I am starting to think its a better choice than the heuer calibre 7 gold glassdome. Although design wise i like the heuer calibre 7 gold compare to this sector dial.

    Ignoring price, the Patek is far more beautiful and better executed from a design perspective. Actually, that JLC does nothing for me.

    I might feel differently if I had it on my wrist, but that patek does nothing for me at all.

    They were discussing about fake rolex

    But point 7 makes me wonder, are we still using plastic movement holder until now ? Or was it just post heuer - pre biver era ?

    I have developed a fetish for the entry level Seiko divers.
    Great value for money.
    This is the entry level Seiko 5 sports, SNZF17J1, priced at around 130$.
    Had it customized with a ceramic bezel, sapphire crystal, custom hands and a nato.

    While i never like seiko, no doubt a lot of people will vouch for its efficiency, value for money, and not to mention looks.

    You know when sometimes you feel like toying with a new watch but it's not the time to spend or you have depleted your budget?
    These Seikos reveal to be real fun.
