Independents: Disclaimer: I don’t do diplomacy,

so with that said, this watch (to my eyes) can be summed up in a single word… junk! Why do I say that, and without any reservation whatsoever? The price is an utter joke. The movement used and finishing is so far removed from the price being demanded that it’s grossly insulting! The novelty is child

Zenith: You can see the marks on the other component that that part slides over.

Something wasn’t right regarding the clearance, and over time, with usage, it’s suffered material fatigue. There’ll be a fair bit of material debris in there, and it’ll accelerate wear on pivots, etc – so don’t even be tempted to continue wearing it.

Hublot: Meca 10, but not in the blue ceramic.

A great watch ruined by making it look like a toy one.

Horological Meandering: Is that it?

Where's the rest of the collection? Maybe you can show us the clothes and shoes too, that way we can tell you what goes with what, and which would be the correct ensemble for this very important event.

Montblanc: Dear Lord…turn the caps lock OFF!!

It’s bad form, since it indicates shouting.

Seiko: It’s a simple quartz movement run by a re-chargeable battery.

The battery is charged by the rotor spinning, but there’s no mainspring nor escapement. Prior to the change to a Li-Ion battery, Seiko used to use a capacitor.

Automotive: Ah, the FT-1.

Superb concept, and gives the impression the designer(s) had a bit of a thing for the TVR Tuscan and Sagaris. Now if only Toyota made TVRs….

Seiko: Not all Langes, mostly just the Zeitwerk...

but the Seiko Galantes really are something very different. Speaking of which, there doesn’t seem to have been anything new in that line, so I wonder if they’ve quietly been retired?

Horological Meandering: Not much at CHF 1500, and I suspect with 90 hours PR,

it’ll be the modified ETA 2824 that Certina and Tissot use, referred to as the Powermatic 80, with its non-adjustable laser calibrated escapement. Looks wise, it strikes me as an ungainly version of Perrelet’s Turbine series.
