This guy did some so-called research and tries to justify buying a Nike watch instead of a 2800 dollar IWC watch to a bunch of watchidiots at TimeZone. I wish this guy good luck!

    I think that guy was somewhat tongue in cheek, but he sure pushed the right buttons. Heresy. Those guys feel that anyone not wearing a mechanical is an ignorant boob (some of their periodic snipes at political or other figures bear this out–do they vote by candidates watch choice? and they think this guy is whacked?)

    I love vintage mechanicals precisely because they are vintage, and have a human,historical context. But their value is that context. Making a new mechanical in today’s world is a futile effort to recapture the past.

    But come on fellas. Timekeeping with springs and wheels is quaint history, but it’s history.
