Independents: Thanks so much, Hussam

Indeed, I'm on this site almost every day even though I keep a low profile as a participant. I do my best within the scope of my job description to steer collectors towards "best value" options rather than stuff that might be closer to its ultimate market potential, and that's also how I shop for my

Independents: If only it worked like that!

But I do have to admit this worked out pretty well. A few years ago, I picked an obscure favorite brand, and now... wow. I should start talking up Pagani and Koenigsegg cars. Best, Tim

Independents: Thanks for the support, Nico

I'd like to think that I keep my reviews and web shows pretty factual. Most people who follow me are aware that I like some brands more and others less, but I don't slam or disparage the ones I don't favor. As for hyped watches and brands, I've always been clear about who the underrated names are, a

Independents: All of your machines are looking good

Is the 911 paint-to-sample, or is that purple somehow a factory option? Best, Tim

Independents: FPJ watches WB sells are used items. Journe's AD strategy won't change WB's interest in the brand as preowned watches.

I've recommended everything from Laurent Ferrier to Karsten Fraessdorf to UN as interesting alternatives to cost-prohibitive brands or models, and I stand by that. Collectors should take all options into account before making a decision. Best, Tim

Independents: I've never claimed a watch was something it wasn't

My pitches are positive but factual. I've never claimed an Hublot is discreet or that a Greubel Forsey fits tiny wrists or that a complete calendar is actually a perpetual. You get the facts about the size of the watch, what it does, and -- to the best of my ability -- when the model was made. You a

Independents: Agreed. I don't think people will appreciate LF's finish and overall quality unless they're gone.

Too much prejudice against the "customer" movements from LFDT means people don't appreciate the quality of the finished product. LF might be the finest traditional etablisseur in Switzerland today. I will say that LF made a succession of product planning mistakes with the Repeater, Bridge One, and t

Independents: I have no time for games and any novelty brands that play them

For hundreds to low thousands of dollars, there's a world of cool Longines, Mido, Tissot, Sinn, Seiko, and even Omega and Breitling products from the last 30 years all waiting to be bought and enjoyed. No, these watches won't impress total strangers on instagram, but they will be satisfying to own a
