Default Timepieces

I received some requests for websites that sell homage watches. While I have a few that I keep in my hip pocket, I thought I'd post links to a few others here.

http://alphawatchusa.com/_catalog_88/Timepieces

mostly Rolex and Omega homages... but their "Carbon" is an original, and pretty sexy.

they sell a little of everything here...

http://tauchmeisterwatches.com/

not homages, but some pretty beefy WWII type divers.

I have an Alpha Carbon on order. Most of these watches use cloned 6497 movements. I have a few Panny Radiomir homages from one of the sites I sent you, and while the fit and finish are not stellar, the movements are robust and keep good time. I lose +/- 10-12 seconds per day... which s about what you'd lose with a genuine Panny

My brother left/forgot/gave me this before he moved to Jakarta. I assume it's a replica.

Yes... but a very good one. Pannies, whether Luminors, Radiomirs, or Subs, all have automatic movements. The face would not say 'automatic' on it. If you are buying a Panerai, you know what you want.

You also have an obscene amount of disposable income...

Some nice pieces... but I never got into the whole 'jump hour' style, which seems to be the majority of stuff on the vintage page.

Styles similar to this...

I'm more partial to divers watches and Panny/U-Boat style timepieces.

Got my eye on this one when my gub'mint check comes in.

Finding a decent 1k rated watch for less than $500 is like winning the lottery.

I found this company while looking for some strap replacements. I've been looking at them all morning. The engraving alone is worth the view...

Amazing shit. I wish I had about $2-3K to blow on one of these.

People that spend 3k on a watch baffle me.

Even that baffles me. Unless the watch also does other things besides TELL TIME.

What about someone who spends $5k?

I'd ask the same about your huge TV. Does it do nothing that a 19" Zenith can do? The tech behind it is the same. It shows moving pictures.

The same principle applies to my watches and your electronics. A $5k watch tells me the time as well as a $50 Timex...

It's mechanical art, Rob.

A 19 inch Zenith will not work with the technology I use (HDMI, Bluray, etc)

A watch is a watch. But I will agree that some of the watches are artistic.
