I think when Holt took on B&R it lost a lot of the appeal for me. You have a premium aviation watch brand across from some digital gucci watch display, there is definitely an image issue there.

I am one that does not mind paying a premium for an eta in an expensive case-set, as long as the brand has a heritage or a unique style. As for BR, I would buy BR-02 which can be found "cheap" 2nd hand, but none of the BR-01 or limited etc.

A good compromise is I guess to get a sterile BR style case-set and pop in an ETA. Probably would run around $500 :-)

Looks sleek and sexy. Black on black Rolex Sub is quite the fashion statement
I have the green bezel Sub.. I'd get the black one too if I could afford it.

that bamford looks hot, but would be nice if the seconds hand or something else had colours just for a 'tad' bit of contrast, something like an orange or green milgauss lightning seconds hand

Good looking watch.. though personally the colours are a bit toy-looking for my taste.

Do stores in beijing sell seikos at a higher price than other parts of the world? If so why dont you buy them here in BC?

with any name brands, just go to a authorized retailer and there won't be any fakes.

I know there are several models of the Grand Seiko that were only released in the Asia market.
