Re: Kobold article on Time Zone

Regarding the “fakes”, I was told that after Kobold and Fricker parted ways, Fricker assembled Soarways and sold them out the back door. They were indistinguishable from one sold by Kobold because Fricker had also assembled all of those. The only thing that made them fake is that it wasn’t sold by ...

He owes or owed a large sum to fricker that was unpaid.

And that was direct from fricker.
Yeah, they told me that years ago as well

I believe the crux of the author's post is the "rule" that says if you buy the mold, it is yours. I believe the author is misguided in this fundamental aspect. There is no "rule". There is only your contract with your supplier and your ability to enforce said contract. First, I find it very hard to...

Good to hear from you Todd. Let me know if you have DLC buckle for my DLC CD1. I had one done here in Australia.

Since I have been quiet on the watch front for quite some time, I thought a quick note here as a little update is on the cards. The costs of producing watches have been hard with the Australian dollar and inconsistent sales. As many of you know, I have a CNC machine and was working to produce the ca...

Re: JSAR Bezel ?

Has anyone ever removed the bezel on a JSAR? I sold one to a guy that is saying that the bezel isn’t working properly. I’m skeptical because I’ve never had an issue with it before, but I guess it’s possible. Looking online it appears to be a wire and spring mechanism, but I was curious if anyone ha...

Re: Worn and Wound, first US Made Nato maybe?

Props for USA made, but fail for a $42 price tag. I'm not paying that for a Nato. Thus the problem with made in the US. We don't want to work for free. I try to buy US made wherever possible, but I definitely pay a premium. Just as an example I have 3 pairs of New Balance made in USA running shoes,...

Re: IWC Tribute to Mark XI - It's Official

I think Marcello C was one of the first micro brands to use the SW's. I owned some that were almost 10 years old with Sellita's in them and they ran excellent. I honestly have yet to have a problem with one of them. ETA is a different story though. The SW-300-1 cost me over $300 USD each, closer to...

Re: Sea King microbrand, yes another one.

Apart from the design aspect That watch in the OP, if they use a Sellita 200 then it sounds like good value. I do not know exactly what the SW200 costs, but for the SW300 I paid on the higher side of $300 USD each, so assume they are a fairly similar cost. Now I dont know their other costs, but even...
