Glashütte Original: bracelet quality

Yeah, the translation and ad copy aren't the best but I believe that GO makes some fo the best bracelets in the business, They're solid, well-engineered and durable and that micro- adjustment feature is great.

Chopard: Chopard service

+1 on excellent Chopard service through the Costa Mesa boutique in California. An older St. Moritz and newer Sport 2000 were both back sooner than expected, looking and working as new.

Horological Meandering: tube replacment

Yes, Ball will replace the hands and dial if the tritium has decayed enough (the t1/2 of tritium is 12.5 years, as you likely know). Mine was ~$250.

Piaget: The late, great Upstream

Mine (on the incredibly comfortable stainless steel bracelet) is one of my favorite pieces. The unfolding bezel always fascinates people. No GMT - it's seconds. A great design that is so different from most of Piaget's work.

Piaget: Superb Piaget service

Seiko: Beautiful dial!

I've got the 10th anniversary version with blue dial. It's my current travel watch due to the true GMT feature of being able to set the date both forwards and backwards. Just wish it was a bit thinner...

Omega: A wonderful little collection!

I've always liked the "C" Constellations and have a handful myself in everything from steel to gold. Unfortunately, none have that great fume' dial, though! Every one of them still runs with in COSC specs after 45-50 years.

Horological Meandering: Seoul - forget it

I used to live in Seoul for business and still travel there frequently. There really isn't much of a used watch market in Korea. Some Koreans told me there is a superstition against having another person's used personal item constantly touching your skin. My wife, who was born in Seoul, thinks that
