Recently one of our members contacted Hartmut Richter, moderator of our Zenith forum and asked him if a Ulysse Nardin forum would be possible here on watchuseek.com.

While this could have been a good idea we at Watchuseek believe it would be rather better to create a "high end watches" forum than a UN forum.

Potential brands to be discussed here are:
Patek Philippe
Audemars Piguet
Vacheron Constantin
A. Lange & Söhne
Breguet

... plus a whole load of brands like Harry Winston, F.P. Journe, Christiaan van der Klaauw, etc.

Good idea, Ernie.|> I know quite a few members have some fantastic high-end pieces, so hopefully this new forum will get some serious action.:)

You can post/see Lange & Söhne here, but to a certain extent, these would not be out of place in the German Watches forum.

Although very few brands have been quoted by WatchUSeek admin, the list could easily be extended enormously. Certainly, Chopard & Cartier would feature, also Blancpain, JLC, Girard Perregaux, Glashütte Original, plus, plus, plus..... The idea is to let the forum regulars decide what is high end and what isn't. Someone posting an ordinary Type X brand watch with little finissage on a standard ETA or other generic movement may not find their post "moved to a more suitable forum" but can probably expect some slightly more than sarcastic comments from the general community.

Potential users should also be aware that some high end watches already have their own forum (e.g. Zenith, Omega, Rolex). If you have specific questions on your watches that cannot be answered here, it might be worth posting there also since the people with the greatest know-how will tend to congregate there. This is not intended to scare you away from here - please by all means, keep the posts coming!

I have also missed this new Forum since it started. Would be better if the place was moved, maybe above the "Affordables" Forum?? :-d


I understand that this Forum should cater for both New and Vintage High End watches?
IMO, a High End watch is not only guided by $$, but also by craftmanship, excellence in design etc.
IMO2: Even some base-ETA powered watches should have a space here, if they show some nice modifications.

Just my 2 coconuts.

Sir,
Love your web site :-! :-!

Love the idea of a high end watches forum :-! :-!

Don't get why your home page link to Forums haven't been updated to include all your themes--- <| ---making it hard for the new user to actually find this theme as well as the Clock World theme, Fashion theme etc...

On your home page if you click on the Forums link [between Shop and News] you miss many of the new Theme Forums. If instead you click the upper right larger font Forums then you go straight to the Forums main page which includes sub fora. Only then can you find the newer themes.

Recommend you update the Themes that can be found under Forum and leave all the sub fora under the Forums Main Page....my guess is that you will see an increase in traffic by doing so. KX
