Tudor is a brand under Rolex that is meant to be more price accessible. Often referred to as "the poor man's rolex". Kind of like the VW equivalent of Audi, except that Tudor are directly based off Rolex models(unlike VW/audi or honda/acura which is the other way around). Quality is pretty good, but they are still expensive..I would personally rather buy an authentic pre-owned Rolex for the same price.

IWC are awesome, I love them. Again, most of their watches are using ETA movements. The IWC Portuguese is one of those timeless pieces that will always be cool and probably one of the "must-have" chronographs for a lot of collectors.



I'm not sure what ETA actually stands for, but it is the name of a swiss company that makes movements, though they are now owned by Swatch(who pretty much has a monopoly over most of the watch world).

The mm is just the diameter of the dial (face). There is no relation between size and quality, just personal preference. Get whichever size you like and looks good on your wrist. I have pieces from 32mm up to 44mm, but I have small wrists so a big watch would look funny on me.

hope that helps!

thanks again for the informative post !

I am assuming all the brands listed above run on chains right ? or still battery?

chains are better right ?

"run on chains"? Are you serious?
Like a pocket watch, good sir?


Seriously though, it's called "mechanical" watches. And watches that runs on battery uses Quartz movement.

Your questions about the Tissot, Tag Heuer and Longines. In my opinion Tissot is the lower tier out of all three. Tag however has wide range of models ranging from Tissot price bracket to Longines. There are few Tag models (Aquaracer 500m and Carrera) that I would like to try in the future.
As Redlines mentioned earlier, there is a pretty noticeable difference in the finish of $1k+ Tag models compared to the Tissots.
As for Longines I only like the Hydroconquest model as the other ones are all too elegant for my taste.

Finally the mm sizes are usually measurement of the watch case excluding the crown. Depending on your wrist size but I find anything over 46mm is ridicules and the sweet spot for me is 42-44mm.

Many brands make both mechanical and quartz watches. Quartz are actually much more accurate and reliable than even the most expensive mechanical on the planet, but there is nothing interesting about the movement. If you just want a watch to tell time, then there is no shame in going quartz.

where do you guys go to service your watches? I have a seiko 7002 that I want to get serviced, it runs but the power reserve is only a few hours after I take off the watch. It even dies when its on the winder. Also I want to get the dial relumed. anyone local does this?

Seriously, do you not have access to Google, eBay, Costco, or a mall?

Your question is ridiculous, it's like going on a car forum and posting a one line question: How much do cars cost?

Breitlings range from about $3k to $400k. Tissot starts at about $300 and goes up from there. Virtually every manufacturer offers mechanical and automatic.

You need to narrow stuff down a ton more.

I have taken my watches to Time & Gold and they did good work every time.

Top 10 Most Expensive Breitling Watch Models - TheRichest

"And, the top spot goes to the Grande Complication model. It is not the typical wrist-watch as it is a pocket watch with an eye-popping price of $280,700, thus the name: Grande."

So $280,700 USD plus exchange rate and taxes, you are looking at about $345k CDN. My bad, I should have said $350k haha.

Thanks for coming out.

Mark

Haha for what it's worth, I totally just guessed at $400k and karma just threw me a bone. It just doesn't really matter what kind of watch it is, at those prices you are basically just paying for the value in the diamonds, etc. so the sky is really the limit...

It's a good watch with a solid movement. Longines calls it a calibre L688, which is based on the ETA 7750. The 7750 is reliable movement that can be found in tag, omega, brietling and a tonne of other chronographs. It's a good watch, what's the price they are offering you?
