  1. Grand Seiko - Is it "mainstream" yet or still "niche"? When, if ever, will it become synonymous with Rolex, Omega, patek, AP?

    Grand Seiko
    I think in terms of quality it certainly deserves to be amongst the big swiss brands. In terms of design, innovation, finishing, new products, I can't think of a more exciting brand than Grand Seiko. Yet many people still have the mental barrier of associating GS with "Seiko". Grand Seiko has...
  2. For Sale Seiko Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs watch

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    For Sale Seiko quartz watch. These were gifts from the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I have had it for several years. It appears to be unworn. I think all it needs is a battery. I didn’t want to open it up. The case, dial and strap are in like new condition. Sold as is with box...
  3. Omega Speedmaster Date 3513.33

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    This has been sitting in my watchbox basically unworn for the past couple years. It's an absolutely gorgeous watch with a beautiful guilloche dial but I just never really connected with it. I think I just prefer divers. I am the 2nd or 3rd owner and do not have the box or papers and the...
  4. Join us for Japanese Whiskey, Sushi, and G-Shocks this Saturday!

    Casio G-Shock
    While we originally planned for this store event to be an opportunity for G-Shock fans to meet G-Shock inventor Kikuo Ibe, his visit has had to be postponed due to health reasons. (Read more on that here.) Rather than cancel the event, we are continuing with a G-Shock event that will show off...
  5. EMPIRE SEIKOSHA Early 20th Century Pocketwatch; Need Help with Identification!

    Seiko
    I was given this SEIKOSHA EMPIRE Pocketwatch as a family heirloom. The time period this was manufactured should be sometime between 1880 and 1934 (the last year EMPIRE watches were in production, as according to the Seiko Museum website). I would include the link, but I'm not given the...

    After much though i've decided to give selling this watch a whack. The watch is in great condition the bracelet is basically new as it has been used mainly on the rubber strap.

  14. To European Buyers: From where do you buy your watches???

    Orient
    It's been a long time since I am searching for a decent and with good prices store, located in Europe, selling (mostly) Japanese watches (specifically Orient). It seems impossible to order anything from outside Europe without been charged with nonsense delivery fees and/or customs. It seems that...

  16. ETA 2824/2892 vs Miyota 9010/9015 - have the Japanese caught up to the Swiss?

    Public Forum
    Just curious. I'm really interested in a H20 Helberg CH6 right now and was going to hold off until they offer it with an ETA movement (which it seems like they're going to do based on the poll they're currently running on their site - bottom right portion of the page if you're interested) but...
  17. Incoming: Cota Japanese Microbrand Watch

    Public Forum
    My Cota watch is here. This is a fun, interesting looking, and not expensive ($335) sun and moon hand wound wrist watch. Each handmade Japanese Cota watch takes about two months to make. When mine arrived I was not disappointed in the slightest. It's a 40 mm watch that fits well on my 6 1/4...
  18. Is Citizen still for the people?

    Seiko
    Hi All I've recently become interested in Citizen watches. The original philosophy behind the brand is fascinating. Since the quartz revolution, mechanical watches have become much more the territory of people like us (who spend valuable time talking to people we most likely will never meet...
