Re: Incoming Hamilton model 21 chronometer

Cool find, I had one for a while, but was not near as complete as yours. It had an aftermarket box and unfortunately not an easily traceable history. Even after owning one the person I bought it from nor I knew about the screw mentioned...

Re: So Bourdain took his own life...

I know he was loved as was Kate Spade, but I can't help but think that the pressure of being famous has got to be tough. Yeah all are probably envious of Bourdain and his job, but if the show isn't doing well I am sure he feels the stress of staying relevant, as I am sure is the same for Kate Spade....

Re: Do any Rolexes have engraved backs?

Also I would look at if I zoomed in on the caseback whether or not scratches when through engravings to try to see if they were after some of the wear

Re: Do any Rolexes have engraved backs?

I dunno I wouldn't say it is wrong until I saw a pic....there is the royal navy clearance diver submariner (not really issued), but the way it was done I am sure it is possible other groups could do it

Re: Christopher Ward C65 Vintage Diver

Hate the logo and it literally makes you feel like you stole someone's personalized watch...why not change it to CW...heck throw the C on the end and you have another CWC

Charlotte watch spots?

Going to Charlotte, I know there are quite a few members there. Anyone know any good watch spots while in town?

Re: How do you guys delineate between an "Homage" vs. Copy/Ripoff?

Now that I stepped away for a minute and thought about this more, I think the lines are more blurred than many realize. I mean certain watches like the submariner and datejust have "inspired" designs by other high profile watchmakers. Does the size of the company make it legit? Heck Bulova makes a R...

Re: How do you guys delineate between an "Homage" vs. Copy/Ripoff?

I pretty much agree with all the points made, I like the 14060 someone modded into a recreation of a milsub (on another forum). I liked it, but then again I am not going to shell out 150k for a real one (and stay married). But yeah I pretty much dislike most "knock-offs" of watches being made today ...
