We can bet on that. ;) [nt]

Wouldn't you if you were them? [nt]

Nope. Long term, they have lost all credibility as an independent watch authority.

They might now become Govberg jewellers or whatever, but what is interesting about that? Just my 5c view. Alex

I have no idea what that means

 By: Brandon Skinner : September 24th, 2019-15:44
But I like your movies👍

I was trying to use the "greater than" symbol between the two... but WatchProSite doesn't seem to render it properly.

BTW, a few shots were fired during yesterday's show: watch?v=F1r3bwrccsI#t=27m57s

Perhaps, on the journalistic side.

But if they can finally have the brands produce things we the collector community have been asking for then I for one am glad they exist.

They still put out some interesting articles, such as the recent one on diving in lake superior.

Also, these Hodinkee editions seem to show watch companies the demand for reasonably sized watches with less text, no date windows and classic styling. So, that's positive. However, I do find the hype around the LEs to be insufferable.

I was texted by my contact at MB Boutique that . . .

. . . it will be "PC," which I took to mean Perpetual Calendar. I'm not in the market but will still be interested to see it. M4

Co-branding is so popular nowadays...

 By: Clueless_Collector : September 24th, 2019-22:59
Like Harrods, Bucherer and I can say everyone wants to be the future “collectible”, just like vintage co-sign PPs today commanding a huge success in auction houses. Fast forward 50-100 years, an auction house will describe this as a rare, collectible piec... 

You know I like to mess and joke around, right?

However, for sure their fat pockets is not going to ours but their own children or grandchildren

No one will really care It's bet for sure but not one I would be willing to place my money on

Maybe a bit ad hominem...

 By: mdg : September 24th, 2019-23:32
...but I hate the way they moderate comments. Anything the least bit critical of a watch being reviewed is omitted (censored). I get it, it’s not my site, but unless you gush over the latest offering, it is ‘eff you,’ It has become tiresome. They really d... 

Looks to be a great movement I hope the dial and case match

 By: reintitan : September 25th, 2019-00:45
These collaboration watches are often times better than what the brands put out by themselves. IIRC, PuristsPro/Watchprosite has made collab watches over the year with multiple manufactures, the most recent being the Zenith Chronometro. Am I wrong? I actu... 

A special UN for WatchProSite forumners would be sweet.

 By: M4 : September 25th, 2019-06:22
A special Sonata or Freak, for example, or a classy enamel dial time only (yes, I have in mind the Singapore Watch Club special edition UN). M4

👍👍 [nt]

 By: M4 : September 25th, 2019-07:11

Indeed. [nt]

It's part of their business model...

 By: KMII : October 2nd, 2019-06:55
So in that sense not really fully we like it might be a secondary concern. I have in the meantime met several people, who are quite happy with the amount of information Hodinkee provides and for whom the limited editions are a safe way to enter. And for ...
