    i have question.
    i got the impression that, in the vintage watches industry,
    un-retouched, un-polished items attract more attention than the so-called mildly-polished ones.
    is this true?
    Hi Doc.
    As long as it gets proper service/maintenance, they perform accurately, like a new watch naman po.
    And itís true that a watch has higher value if itíall OG - all parts are as manufactured and if the dial is unretouched and case is unpolished. I have a Tudor Submariner I got from Japan for example that I got for a lower price than it would have sold because they replaced the tritium and applied new lume to the hands.



    The dial is unretouched and still retains the Tritium but the hands have been relumed. This could have sold at 2x the value if the hands were not re-lumed. I donít mind naman so I still got it. The lume is helpful at night. Besides, i like the small case size of 36mm vs 40mm for the Rolex Submariner. And I like the understated elegance of this Submariner. Sabi nga nila sa ad nila years ago:
    Ď (Tudor is for) the man whose purse may be modest, yet whose aspirations are high.í

    The Orient Bambino is an excellent value watch. Well-designed. I just wish they had smaller cases for smaller wrists. Meron ba silang 36-38mm? Would consider getting those. Parang 40-41mm ata kasi yun sizes nila.
    I find those sizes too big for my wrist. Parang 36-37mm yun best for my wrist, esp if dressy yun watch. Pag divers, I can wear 40mm, sagad na siguro 42mm (SKX007, for example). Pero i like 36mm divers as well. Like this 36mm Longines Legend Diver on a 19mm Forstner Rivetted Bracelet:

    I like a divers watch similar to this one. The JLC Polaris is only something you could wish for but that Longines Legend is a good buy for around 2k USD. For less than 1k USD, you could opt for the Certina DS PH200.

    Nakikita ko nga iyong mga ads na mga ganyan ng mga modifiers" sa carousel at shopee/lazada. Pero totoo iyong watch repair lang sa palengke ang tumira? Galing din ano [emoji4]

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
