    I've had a Tissot for the price they are a very good quality price ratio....

    Next one im getting is a Birks ... they are making their own ones ...
    Et je l'écoute (Joël Bouchard) toujours jusqu'à la fin de son laïus parce que je suis convaincu qu'un jour, il va terminer en nous offrant des voitures usagées à des prix INCROYABLES!

    Me, generally, anything vintage or vintage-inspired.

    In the lower-end, Hamilton (excellent value for money).
    In the mid-range, true manufactures like Zenith and Nomos (again, both excellent value for money).
    In the high-end, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron Constantin, and Glashutte Original.


    I also enjoy searching out vintage Omega and Zenith.

    This jogged my memory about some watches my son got from his uncle many years ago, maybe someone knows something about these, value?
    1) Patek Philippe Genev........... On the back same thing plus #168 & Swiss made
    2) Cartier................................ On the back Cartier, Quartz, Swiss made , Or et acier
    3) Cartier ( Looks like...Mustde in writing ).............. On the back.. Nothing

    He has more but does not know where they are right now.
    I never dreamed that one day I would be a grumpy old man, but here I am killing it.

    Patek Philippe ?

    I'd start looking for it

    The Timex is an excellent FKK watch

    The backlit feature helps in the cabins at Golden Time

    The 3 I mentioned I have in front of me, the rest he will find later, too busy building his car right now.

    I found a store that sells Patek on Sherbrook ( Kaufmann de Suisse ) I will be dropping by this week.
