Re: Borrowed design article

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...

Re: Aegir is still here

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. The CSIRO is a government department and just so happened they are the only people in the country who do DLC. Sent them two buckles and waited as long as you would expect a government de...

Aegir is still here

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...
