Where to buy watches
We got a snappy admin, all my good posts get moved and turned into sub-forums. So let's try another: over the years I figured out where to buy my watches. I will share that with you (well, maybe I'll keep a few sites to myself), maybe you will share some with me.

Go local, as in national (handy if you know your languages) go to Ebay Kleinanzeigen - Germany of course.

Russian watches are dirt cheap - but any good?
Well yes! I just got me a Luch 2209 from the 70s. That movement inside is just 3 mm thick. This hand winder is pretty accurate too.

But, to just get into more detail, below you can read more about some - not all - Russian watches; central will be the most frequently asked question, "Are they any good?” I will try to write a short guide. 

First of all, in many cases don't expect a level of finish/construction higher than Swiss (or Swiss-branded) watches. Russian watches

The most robust watches are quartz
As the title states, quartz is way more robust than purely mechanical watches. The less moving parts the better right?

Accurate Time System Casio watches (ATS)
Well, we are all slowly being ushered into the smartwatch age by several brands - you just can't stop this. But then, it all started with quartz and lcds in the seventies and do you own any of those? Of course you do.
So, there you go, make the one extra step... I am liking the Edifice series.. solar, Bluetooth smartphone link for the ATS, WR and chrono. Maybe a bit expensive at 300 USD?

Vintage Chinese watches
Well I took up the challenge, seeing if there is something to Chinese horology - and there is! This below is from a Wiki page...

Radio controlled watches overview
After doing some research I found that there are not many brands that offer these atomic time watches, let alone the different time zones like Europe, Asia, America etc.. And then there are different terminologies used - multi band atomic time, radio controlled being just two of them.

So lets start the list; I found several less established brands to be easily found: EurochronPrecision, Bering, Maximilian, Braun, Danish Design and Skagen; of course

Vintage watches are ideal for women
I will make this short and sweet, just like my lovable real life self. I found that vintage watches, which are usually sized at 34 to 36 mm, are just perfect for my wrist. They are also perfect for my wallet as I can get them cheaply, they do make a lovely combo with any leather strap you  might choose. So, vintage is unisex!

Ball watches for women
What I do like about Ball is that they always include a female sized watch for many of their models, like the Fireman. Shouldn't they be just called "Firewoman" - I am sure there are ladies present in the firemen corps right?

Sea-Gull retrograde watches
The reversal of time becomes reality

[attachment=1280]

Retrograde mechanism refers to jumping back to the starting point after having reached the end, making its movement a reciprocating motion different from the common circular motion.
Traditional watches always move in a circle around the center point. As early as 1794 Abraham-Louis Breguet made a pocket watch with retrograde date display. E. Koehn exhibited his own retrograde second hand patent in 1892. Ever since 1903 when Giov
