Hodinkee has a recent post where they ask, what does the sound of the $400,000 Seiko Credor repeater, compare to that of a vintage patek Phillipe or a new Louis Vuitton?

Good question, let’s see!

Not sure who to attribute this to, as I found it online as just an image with no text, but it’s a neat sort of explanation of many terms surrounding the British “areas”…

I have to love a model line that calls itself “Neo 70s” … new models from Orient invoke the design feel (and colours) of days past. Thanks to Yeoman for the details.

Very cool watch, another “mechanical digital”, but with a very neat “barrel within a barrel” mechanism. Thanks to Ariel for pointing out the link on his recent post.
