Title: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on February 15, 2007, 03:47:18 PM
Mahilig ka ba sa relo?  bakit?  ano ba meron sa relo? 
Is it a necessity?  Status symbol?  sign of achievement?
for collection?

sir Lex, for me all of the above! hehehehe... ;D it's an achievement owning watches  with watch heritage. it's a collection and an investment because it appreciates over time. 2 cents worth lang... :D

oo nga Yey, precise movement of each cog and part in that tiny machine is an engineering marvel!

...altho i havent worn one in 4 years na, rason ko dahil my CP serves as my watch na and cguro a matter of lifestyle na rin.  i only wear a (sports) watch when i need to time my activity lang.

ako mahilig din sa relo. namana ko yata ang hilig sa lolo ko. but not too old and expensive. di kaya ng powers. ayoko ng de baterya, at any given work week i wear an automatic time piece. pag feeling playful saka ko na ilalabas yung mga plastic na de baterya..like my swatch...nasaan na kaya yun? ganda pa naman, me palakang naka smile. pinahiram ko sa isang taong blond blue-eyed, di na binalik sana maalala nyang ibalik!
for many years i wore a tag na automatic na junior sized, mukhang wala na kong makitang ganun these days but i still have it. these days i wear an oris.

a few years back, ang alam ko lang na relo, rolex, omega, oris, tag...etc.. when i went to taiwan last 2005, i bought a japanese watch magazine, because the cover was an omega speedmaster, ganda eh.. lo and behold, my eyes were opened to the world of watches... ang dami palang ibang relo!  magaganda, malalim ang history... 

kakaiba ang relo... dati akala ko ang automatic watch umaandar dahil sa pulso ng tao hahaha... hindi pala! may mga ibat ibang springs and balances pala yun na automatically nawi-wind ng rotor na umiikot habang gumagalaw ang relo sa kamay mo... amazing!

in an episode of 60 minutes the old geezer there talked about watches. he said that a $20 watch can tell time as well as a $500 one. it could be true but not for me. i like watches more than other forms of jewelry. i actually call it a timepiece and not simply a watch.

paging nelyo! paging nelyo! share your passion about watches here man!

nelyo oriented me about his watch collection and what a watch is really all about... in fact i bought his pilot watch recently and i consider it as my first "real watch". galing kasi mag sales talk hehehe

when buying a watch, it's like buying a car or a VESPA. you have to know its engine, history of maker, etc etc. just like a vespa, every watch has its own story 'ika nga....

LEX, same here.. akala ko din ang automatic, pulso lang ng tao nagpapaandar  ;D

what I've learned from watches and riding..

- preferably digital (ana-digi the best)
- must be shock-proof (think g-shock and ironman)
- lightly-colored digits on black background for greater visibility
- should be cheap (in case you're knocked unconscious and being looted)

in other words, leave the rolex, panerai and iwc at home

this one's nice: the Casio G-Shock G-300KRT for the Kawasaki Racing Team

I was exposed to the world of watches at an early age.   My dad was a manager of the Omega shop in Makati in the early 70's yata or even earlier pa.

He would bring us to the shop pag weekends and all I remember was that his office was dark haha.  I wanted to go out and play on the Carabao statue along the brickroad (?) arcade nun.

Sadly, I never inherited my dad's passion for timepieces.  I know he has a collection of old Omegas and a few Rolexes but I'm not really sure which.  I borrowed an old Omega Seamaster from him one time and it quickly became my favorite.  Very slim watch and the bracelet was like chain mail, a really good looking watch.  It's still with him (I hope).  I'll try to borrow it one of these days and get a good photo of it.  Or better yet, coax him into having me photograph his collection.....pati na din yung antique coin collection nya.

Me?  I have an old Tag which was my Dad's gift to me during my HS graduation.  Still going strong, though needs cleaning daw.  And my Mickey Mouse dress watch hehe.

Yun na yun.

With me it's more of a fascination, imagine being able to own something from an era/time way back.  I started by collecting Omega Constellations then it led to anything Omega.  Then I decided to collect Military watches so I started buying Elgins, Gruens, Hamiltons then this led to anything American.  Then I started with pocket watches, I'm fortunate to have some railroad pocket watches and one made in 1898.  Imagine that! I own something from 1898! The railroad pocket watches are interesting, since train engineers had no way of communicating with other trains and stations, they needed an accurate time piece to avoid being late and any accidents.  A railroad pocket watch is synonymous with todays chronometer.  Pocket watches are definitely a thing of the past.  Anyway I have a couple of Heurs before they became a Tag, an early Explorer 1 and a Bubble back Rolex, a couple of GPs.

I stopped collecting/buying when I started going crazy looking for a Gruen doctors watch, an Omega wind up chrono moon watch, an Omega RAF military watch, a military IWC, a USAF Breitling, a Patek or Omega perpetual, a Patek Calatrava, a Paul Newman Daytona Rolex, an Omega military pocket...hehehe crazy.

If I may stray a bit boss Bimbo. Yey is right there is something about old classics.  I own an American made bellows camera and a Nikon F2A and Im still looking for a Leica.  I recently bought at a bargain an early model Superposed Browning its an over and under shotgun with engravings, leather case and all. This model was the last firearm and only shotgun that John Mosses Browning designed. Browning has stopped making this model. Sobrang ganda I dont think I can fire it!  There is something about vintage/old school craftsmanship, the bottomline back then was the bragging rights that an artisan made the best, nowadays everything is mass produced and the bottomline is the pay at the end of the day which is why you have recalls, defects and lemons. Sigh! The Vespa keeps me grounded  :)

galing ng collection ni sir johos!  :) 

some swiss watch brands are indeed very expensive. there are the entry level, mid brands and the more exotic expensive brands like patek and vacheron. some swiss brands uses the ETA movement (a company that manufactures watch movements) and sometimes upgrade the movement to incorporate it to their own design. the more expensive brands have their own movements like Audemars and JLC. the latest news is that ETA will no longer sell their watch movements to swiss watch brands.  ???
some swiss brands are new in the market but command a very high price like frank muller, chronoswiss, hublot etc... because of winning awards (i.e. most complicated movement or design of the watch) during the baselworld which is the oscars of horology. it's nice to learn more on the different swiss watch brands heritage.
just my 2 cent worth... :D

Interesting news about ETA Randy. A big bulk of todays contemporary Swiss watches use this movement.  Thats why I prefer the early ones.  I almost bought a hunter pocket watch Vacheron Constantin engraving and all.  A hunter pocket watch is the one that has a flip cover like a clam phone.  Anyway sayang I didnt buy it I was too snooty thinking that the best pockets were only American made.

I met some collectors of high end stuff Audemars, Breguet, Muller, Patek... ang gaganda! I met someone who had a high end collection and he has two of each! One to keep mint and the other to wear. Crazier than me! Huge investment! On the other hand I met the President of Toyota Motor Philippines, his daily wear is a high end but he has an interesting collection of low end Swiss watches.  I've seen an interesting collection of Mickey Mouse watches in the US and and met a Filipino Doctor in L.A. who has all the models of Swatch brand new from the very first model to every new one that is released!

Buy what you like so you enjoy it right away. The ROI is secondary.  Remember the adage of investment of buying low and selling high.  So sometimes that rare low end can be interesting.

Post by: randypogi on February 17, 2007, 07:23:03 PM
wow!  :o a vacheron constantin pocket watch! sayang it slipped away....

i agree with you (sir johos) that the best pocket watches are made in america because it was mainly used by train/railroad people. some collectors based their collection by categories or function/design. some collect all chronographs other collect all heuer (pre-tag heuer) watches as an example. some even to an extent have a large collection of 'swatch' watches.  :)

I would just like to share a story about a timepiece that I got from my dad this year.

As a kid, I remember my dad using an old pocketwatch which he always boasted belonged to my lolo. He was using it as his daily timepiece and one day I noticed that he was back using his old Rolex all-steel Oyster Precision. I remember asking him where the pocketwatch was and he brought it out and said he dropped it and has been deemed irrepairable by a a watch repair shop in Escolta. It was in bad shape. The hands were all mangled and the glass cover cracked and separated from the watch already. That was that and the watch was put aside in the family safe to be forgotten. This was back in the early 70's.

Just last year, my wife was gifted with a pocket watch by my mother-in-law who visited Switzerland. For some reason, I remembered the watch that my father used when I was a kid. I gave my dad, who is now 87, a call and asked about it. He said it was in the safe. I asked him if I could have a look and he reminded me of the shape it was in. I went to my dad's house and looked at it. Boy, was it in bad shape! As I mentioned, the hands were mangled and the glass cracked and separated from the watch already. I took it home and started to tinker around with it. I started to wind it and I was shocked to hear a ticking sound! I looked at the second hand and it was moving! It was alive!!! I was staring at it in disbelief and my heart sank when I saw the hour and minute hands cut and bent out of shape. I placved some calls to some watch collector friends and was directed to call a schoolmate from the Ateneo, Rani Jalandoni, who had to study watchmaking to maintain his over 300 pieces of Omega collection. I brought it to him and he was amazed at the condition of this over 90 year old time piece. He said that it didn't even have to be taken apart for cleaning and all it needed was dusting. He replaced the hands with what he had and got a new glass cover for it.

The pocket is an 18K solid gold, 21 jewel Howard Pocketwatch (photos attached). It was built sometime between the 1900's and the 1930's when the company was still in existence. My dream now is to be able to bring it back to its original state–hands and the glass cover. Thanks to PenManila, I now have a place where they might know where I can have this done. Salamat po, Mr. Butch.

Railroad watches... pretty interesting..

i picked up one watch catalogue from a local watch dealer .. the brand is BALL .. i believe the history of the watch company dates back late 1800s when americans were building their railroad system...

Anyway, their watches look nice.. they have these gas powered lumes, ang liwanag! hehe... i saw a couple displayed at edsa shangrila hotel... ang liwanag nya talaga sa dilim...

johos, very nice collection!  are you still wearing all you watches? or just keeps them safe in a wooden watch box? hehe dami eh  ;D

Nice pocket watch Yey! Now if you can find a vintage pocket watch chain, that would complete the look. I use to go around with a pocket watch complete with chain  ;D My collection isnt extensive nor that expensive as it seems, as I said you dont need to buy alot, just have some interesting pieces. Lex nakatago in a safe place.  I dont have the watchboxes that constantly move your automatics, I found them expensive, pang bili ko nalang ng ibang relo  ;D.  My daily wear is just an early 70's Rado Purple Horse automatic, the days are in Spanish, got it dirt cheap, it looks like a Rolex sa biglang tingin, so even if it gets stolen I wont feel bad.  My sports watch is a Seiko Dive Watch  ;D infact I would like to buy a Suunto  ;D.  When you're riding I think its easier to read a digital watch. I just have a couple of Seamasters and Constellations and an 80's series 2k Tag at home. Once I learn how to upload, will upload some of them  ;D.

ang advice sa akin ng omega service center dapat continuos ang movement ng isang automatic watch. kasi kapag nag-stop may tendency na mag-dry yung lubrication ng movement which can affect yung precision. so it is better to put it in a watch winder however medyo mahal ang price ng isang winder. IMHO.  :) well, i guess it goes to all watches with automatic movements.
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on February 19, 2007, 09:35:34 PM
randypogi, yep yep.. you're right... automatic/manual wind watches need to run constantly to prevent the lubrication from drying...

i don't have money to buy a winder... sobrang mahal nun! ...so i just wind my watches everyday to keep them constantly running... hehe... everyday, i see to it that i spend a few minutes winding my watches... kumbaga quality time na din with them hehehe...

so guys, if you have watches that slow down, or even stop once in a while, you may have to bring it to the service center to check the lubrication and also some other parts may need replacing...
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on February 20, 2007, 01:25:07 PM
advice ng omega service center is to bring your omega watches for servicing/lubricating parts and checking the accuracy of its movement once a year and its for free! kung may parts na papalitan then may bayad na.  ::)

sir lex, nakabili ako ng winder at P14,000 pwede 4 watches ang ilagay naka sale pa yun! P25,000 daw ang actual price! whew! kahit naka sale price mahal pa rin...
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: johos on February 20, 2007, 02:45:02 PM
Randy mura yung 14K!  The issue of auto winders is controversial.  I have the Quiapo style thingy that spins around, yung stainless na parang ferris wheel ;D I hardly use it though.  Some watch collectors who don't use autowinders claim that anything mechanical that runs forever increases the wear and tear of the piece and since what I own are early models, I tend to err on that side of the controversy.  Some collectors believe naman on what you and Lex agree upon that they should constantly be running.  I know one collector who has his collection regularly serviced kahit walang problema.  To each his own talaga. Randy what does your auto winder run on?
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on February 20, 2007, 04:46:46 PM
14k for a winder...?  4 watches.. ok na yun ah... i think a single watch winder nasa 5-7k ata...  anyway, i still enjoy winding my watches almost everyday... so tipid tipid muna haha...  :D

Re: movement ... you have a good point there johos.. pero you have to choose between wearing out some part against drying up the lubrication... hirap no? haha... pero sa tingin ko, parang vespa din... you might as well use your vespa than keep it in your garage.  Pag hindi masyado gamit, medyo hindi maganda condition ng vespa...... sa relo, drying up the lubrication would eventually lead to greater extent of wear on some parts... so ganun din.. paandarin mo na lang...  :D

some watch companies suggest to have the watch serviced/overhauled every 5 years.  The overhaul will include changing of some worn out parts... hindi ko alam kung ano yung mga yun hehe... testing for water resistance should be done every 2 years... if used in water most of the time, yearly check for water resistance is a must... so depende sa gamit mo talaga...

omega service is superb! ... galing ng service center ng omega... i sold my bro-in-law's watch last year ata, we met there (omega service center, glorietta) and have the watch authenticated, nawala na kasi yung documentations nung relo... walang bayad yung authentication... walang reklamo, walang tanung tanong... very good!

Post by: randypogi on February 20, 2007, 05:16:18 PM
i bought the winder at lucerne and it runs on 220 volts. i bought the winder upon the advice of omega service center to keep the watch moving constantly. advice nga sa lucerne is to have the winder repaired sa kanila in case na masira. the winder has a 3 minute rotation with 1 minute rest. automatic na because some expensive winders can adjust the number of rotation per minute. the winder is already 2 years old. masakit pa rin shelling out 14k for a winder! hehehehehe  ;D
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: nelyo on February 21, 2007, 04:08:12 PM
Good job Lex, finally you started this thread. There are two schools of thought on the use of the watch winder. In terms of maintenance issues & long term reliability, R&D teams of several prestigious watch houses believe that the weakest link of any automatic watch is the rotor winding system. A place where most wear & tear takes place. Following this line of thinking will make you conclude that putting your investment on a winder will not yield the best results. Personally, I am partial to maximizing the power reserve of my watch before I put it on my wrist or the winder. By doing this I can rotate & maximize both the use the winder & the watch. This will also alert you if the power reserve is still under full potential. The question now is, what is the most optimal, reliable, durable, accurate, easy to maintain, service & regulate & a relatively maintenance free basic movement. Of course quartz! Kidding aside, it really depends on how much you can afford to spend for a watch & the emotional attachment you have on a particular timepiece. Here’s my two cents worth of advice to my fellow Vespinoy’s who are on the hunt for the best automatic watch. Pang harabas & within reach is the Sinn 756 duochronograph with DiaPal escapement (heavily reworked Valjoux 7750). Sinn uses synthetic diamond pallets that need no lubrication over an extended period as compared to rubies. What makes it even better is that the watch case & bracelet is hardened to 1200 vickers (also available in PVD finish) which makes it almost scratchproof. It’s just like buying an Aston Martin for the price of a Japanese sedan. If money is no object, then the JLC Master Home Time (calibre 975) & JLC Master Compressor Dualmatic (calibre 972) is your best bet. Both models have in-house autotractor escapements. Autotractor escapements are virtually maintenance free because it uses Ceramic Zirconium Oxide ball bearing mechanism for the oscillating weight & the coupling lever ensures reliability of the winding mechanism without lubricant. OOOPS…tigil ko na baka san pa mapunta ang usapan. Word of advice lang…constant exposure to this bisyo can cause severe marital distress! Nyahahahaha ;D

so there is greater wear and tear on automatic watches because of the rotor?  How about manual wind watches?  Are they better? Mas matibay?

To wind or not to wind ----

If you keep on using your collectible (or keep it running indefinitely), mas maaga talaga malalasag.  Pero well oiled naman ang mga pyesa.  (Parang GRO ano)

If you dont use it (or keep it running), di nga malalaspag, baka matuyuan nga lang.  (Bakit ng ba mas mataas and incidence ng cervical cancer sa mga madre?)



As in a lot of things in this world, its always a compromise.  And the better compromises ay yung binagbibigyan parehong school of thought.  Thus:

- Start with a good piece para di madaling masira

- If you don't need to keep it in time (as in you don't use it often), wind it up to full once in a while, just to let the lubricants circulate (ala putting your SUVs in 4x4 mode once in while).  Wearing one collectible once a week (Sundays for me) works as well.

- If you need to keep it in time, buy a watch winder.  Set it on the least amount of windings necessay to keep it on time (after much trial and error).  If it doesnt have adjustments and runs on AC power (calling randypogi), experiment with a Timer to get the appropriate on/off sequence.

Other things you can do:

- If you can't buy a winder ask your alalay to wear it for you (ala Sharon);

- Give some of your watches to your wife (at uso naman ngayon yung women wearing mens watches) para may kahati ka nang nag aalaga.  You can always borrow them back anyway.

- If you have difficulty maintaning your pieces, pa ampon nyo nalang dito  :)

Lex,

Here are helpful tips for proper care & maintanance of both Mechanical & Automatic Watches. ;)

By following a few simple and easy points, you will insure that your watch will be reliable for years to come.

1. By the nature of it's components, the watch is mechanical. It will not be as accurate as a quartz watch and it is not as tolerant under certain circumstances. You can reasonably expect that a mechanical watch will run fast or slow several minutes per day. Colder and warmer temperatures may affect the timekeeping temporarily.

2. Do not overwind or force your watch. Just wind it slowly until it is enough to get the watch started. If it is an automatic (rotor) type, or if manual, wind until you feel it stop. Do not force the watch past this point, as doing so will likely damage the mainspring or stem, both of which may be costly to fix.

3. Similar to automatic, a mechanical watch will require periodic service to maintain it's optimum condition. A service includes a complete cleaning and oiling and should be performed at intervals of every 18 months, sooner if the watch will encounter dusty or damp environments regularly. Be sure to use the services of a qualified service technician, experienced in the care and maintenance of mechanical watches.

4. Unlike quartz or battery operated watches, a severe jolt or dropping the watch may cause damage to the fine mechanisms inside. Excercise the care afforded to any timepiece.

By following these simple steps, you will be able to prolong the life of your watch. Most of all, wear it and enjoy it.

Interesting post Nelyo! When you see the rotor you really get to think that it is better for it to stop once in a while, it looks so delicate.  They say even a vintage car can be properly stored for years, then filled with oil, filled with gas, put in a new battery then started.  But a vintage car used as a daily drive will definitely breakdown.  It really is up to you, different strokes for different folks. Tama si 1x a compromise is in order.

The post of Randy re. ETA possibly stopping their providing movements to watch makers as I mentioned is also interesting.  That might make some models interesting to own. Something like the last piece made by so and so watch company that has an ETA movement.

Learning alot from of you guys! Very passionate about this hobby ;D.  Ako, like I said, stopped already.  Before I even reached the point of studying watch repair. The best I've done is to clean the movements of wind-ups and assembled some automatic Seikos.  Before, when I acquire a piece (depending on the model and if it needs to be done) I open the back, take off the crown, pop the movement out, take of the arms if needed to clean the dial and clean the case.  Like I said tumigil na ako kasi nakakaloko but of course a nice looking piece still gets my eye.

Lex, re. IWC sometime ago when I was still crazy, I saw a vintage military model that was owned by a consul to the Philippine Embassy in Vietnam, ang ganda, and it had the words French Foreign Legion engraved at the back.  Interesting piece but not for sale  :(

Anyway keep on posting!

If it's difficult for you to get a GF to wear your automatic, place it beside a constantly vibrating thing like an electric fan.

Mere vibration will not "wind" most automatics.  Might even cause lossening up of parts.  A gentle swing is required.

Should you want to use your electric fan, try hanging it (carefully and securely) at the bottom of the cage via S hook and let the fan head "rotate".  :)

If it works for you, may winder ka na, may sampayan ka pa ng mga reloh  :D

that's a good idea... done it myself... pinasuot ko muna sa gf ko yung isa hehehe nagustuhan nya actually  :D patay!  :P


Yun lang!   At least mababawasan na yung maraming tanong or reactions na mga tipong "reloh nanaman!"; "Masusuot mo ba yan ng sabay sabay?";   ;D


Seriously, a shared hobby can be a blessing at times  :)

nelyo: nice post.. thanks for the tips! i'm not really into vintage watches... medyo bago lang ako dito and im fascinated with the watch world...

re: newer automatics, i think they have already placed a clutch in the design, this will prevent you from overwinding the watch... when you reach the maximum tension, you will hear a clicking sound indicating maximum tension.

johos: that IWC is nice.. vintage ah... what i like about the company is that they still have parts for old watches.. yun ang pinagyayabang nila, so marerestore mo pa din kahit sobrang lumang iwc timepiece, of course, medyo mahal siguro hehe

we really need to take of our automatic watch(es).  :)

charge to exprience:  biglang huminto yung relo ko. so i had it checked sa service center. nung binuksan nila, they showed me na nabuhol yung spring sa isang wheel (i don't know the name of the specific parts). they asked me kung bumagsak daw? i said, i can't recall. anyway, it cost me P8,000 for the repair/service.

after the experience, that was the time na bumili na ako ng watch winder (brand: WTE)  ;D

charge to experience sir lex.  ;D

sir johos, according to international watch (iW) magazine dated September 2005 p. 53 last paragraph in an article on Louis Erard brand reads:

"also nearby is Soprod SA, the renowned timepiece-engineering firm that reworks
mechanical movements, develops sophisticated movements and modules and, recently, makes its own movement and, recently, makes its own movements. Louis Erard utilizes the Soprod for its 1931 collection and may possibly add a newly develop in-house Soprod movement to a Louis Erard collection. Spinedi (CEO/owner) is working with Soprod in anticipation of the 2008 deadline for firms like his that utilizes the Swatch group ETA movement kits. After that date (when Swatch will halt such third party deliveries) he'll supply his company in part via Soprod."

with this, swatch group will no longer supply its ETA movement to other brands which are not under the swatch group of companies. with the result of mergers and buyouts there are congolmerates or group of companies (swiss watch brands) within the swiss watch industry.

i can only list a few group of companies and their brands:

1.  swatch group - breguet, blancpain, omega, rado, tissot, the swatch brand,
                          longines, glashutte etc.

2.  LMVH (louis vittion) - tag heuer, zenith, dior watches, chaumet etc.

3.  Gucci group - boucheron, gucci etc.

4.  richemont SA - cartier, piaget, vacheron constantin, A. lange & sohne, JLC
                          baume & mercier, montblanc etc.

if what was written is correct, then the following brands not under the swatch group should look for other sources just like the brand Louis Erard. some are already making their own movements.

the following brands and models uses the ETA 7750 movement:

1.  fortis b-24 cosmonaut chrono
2.  tag heuer aquaracer
3.  brietling  chrono cockpit
4.  ball watch hydrocarbon chrono
5.  eberhard chrono champion
6.  graham swordfish
7.  iwc ingenieur chrono

to name a few...they are priced differently but they have the same ETA 7750 movement. how come? its because of marketing of the brand! well, i'm not an expert.
just my 2 cents worth...IMHO  :)

regarding ETA movements being used by other watch companies:

For some companies, they highly modify or rework the ETA movement before putting it in their watches... what they do is to buy the ETA movement then diassembles it, change some parts according to their specifications and rebuild the movement again... according to IWC yan.

Sir Lex,

Where do you have your watches maintained and cleaned?  I need to have my Rolex Oysterdate serviced. It just stopped for no apparent reason.  Its a manual.  It was a grad gift from my dad.

Not too comfortable having it serviced with the Rolex shop.

Many thanks!

Horhe,

I have a friend who's business right now is selling reconditioned vintage watches. I have gotten several pieces from him and so have other Vespinoys. Just last week, i had a my brother-in-law's Rolex Oyster Precision reconditioned by him. It came out very nice. He comes highly recommended. His name is Jet Salta and you can get in touch with him at o9179842293. Hope this helps.

You might want to try out direkyey's recommendation.

But if you want to have it serviced by an authorized dealer, you might want to try Washington at shangrila mall, edsa.  My sister had her rolex serviced at washington. Ganyan din, huminto na lang... They recommended cleaning and lubrication.  They asked 5k for the service plus cleaning/polishing of the whole watch.  Watch came out like new heheh.. galing!

"what are the top 5 brands/watches in the world?"

naku?! ang hirap niyan tanong na iyan....very subjective at depends kung anong criteria ang gagamitin. popularity? number of watches sold? design? technology? brand heritage?  ;D dami pwede criteria to consider. IMHO.

Post by: nelyo on March 02, 2007, 03:27:39 PM
Mga Tol...naks parang si Robin & Mike D. ah, masagot nga ang tanong ni Karlo. Para sa akin lang naman, heto yung mga relo na palagi kong napapanaginipan kahit gising ako. Although having a trust fund to your name (Gaya ng iba dyan...) does help deepen one's portfolio of watches, you don't need six figure bank accounts to start investing. Putting money on the right watch calls for an understanding of whether demand will outstrip supply for a hot brand & an even hotter model. Big-brand manufacturers including Panerai, IWC, & Audemars Piguet, are pretty safe bets. This is particularly true for IWC watches that feature their in-house 5000 series calibre, Panerai Historic or limited edition models & AP's Royal Oak Offshore watches. Kaya kahit isa lang sa mga to puwede na mag end game lalo na sa suweldo ko!  ;D

1. A. Lange & Sohne - Lange 1 (Because of its refinement & flawless engineering)
2. Audemars Piguet - End of Days Royal Oak Offshore (The Holy Grail of sport watches)
3. Panerai - PAM 217 Marina Militare (for its rugged & robust feel)
4. IWC - Big Pilot (for its practicality- 7 days power reserve with pellaton winding system)
5. Roger Dubuis - Golden Square (The only watch brand that has the bragging rights to receive a Geneve Seal on all their watches...tinalo pa ang Patek)

1)  Panerai (because of italian descent at italian naval history...hehe at syempre ganda)
2) IWC (history at accuracy ng relo)
3) Rolex (it's a rolex)
4) Patek P.  (dahil sa ad nila na "You never actually own a Patek Philippe, You merely look after it for the next generation" .. yabang! hehe)
5) Audemars Piguet (lalo na yung sa F1)

2)  Rolex (especially the old models!  ;D)
3)  Panerai (because of the italian navy heritage and design! malayo pa lang alam mo na na panerai  :D)
4)  Vacheron Constantin (250 year old heritage!)
5)  a TOURBILLION watch any brand!  ;D

Post by: johos on March 06, 2007, 10:06:39 PM
Hmmm interesting, top 5 I would like to have.  It would probably be something rare or with historical value, something not just anyone could have. John F. Kennedys Omega, Paul Newmans Rolex Daytona, Steve Mcqueens Heur, Jacques Cousteaus Doxa Dive watch or his early Submariner, Einsteins pocketwatch...hehehe panaginip.  For reality purposes siguro it would be a vintage Patek Calatrava or vintage Patek Perpetual Moon.  Back in the 90's these two models could be had for as low as USD2500 to a high of USD4000, the exchange back then was 25 to the $, dapat bumili na ako! ;D

An interesting piece you might want to add to your collection (which I regret I dont have) is the Marcos watches.  There are three models with the side view of FM, the FL and both of them. It has a windup Swiss movement. The rare one is the FM model because he didnt just give them away the way the FL did.  Sayang when I started collecting it was just being sold for as low as Php600 now it runs in the high 4 figures.

Randy sino po gumagawa ng movement of Bulgari and Tiffany?  There is this very smart/elegant contemporary Tiffany that I like.

Sir Johos, for Bvlgari majority ang ETA movement base tapos inaayos (improving it) nila according to their specs.  Example: diagono professional GMT model movement is an automatic dubois-depraz caliber 312 (base ETA 2892-A2). majority of chronographs uses this ETA base.  for tiffany, hindi ko alam kung sino ang gumagawa ng movement nila. by the way, i'm not an expert in horology. mahilig lang hehehe  ;D

found this watch while browsing mobile review.. a watch built by sony ericsson and fossil's partnership that will alert you if someone is calling with matching caller id, when you got a text message, manage mp3's in your phone all via bluetooth wireless connection.. it will even alert you if your phone is out of range.. kinda heavy nga lang at 182grams.

sulit yung CALIBREna magazine at P275 pesos! kasi yung iW magazine costs P700.00!
mas marami pang laman at mababasa ang calibre magazine. i recommend all watch connoisseur yung WRISTWATCH ANNUAL catalog/book. very useful! it describes the specific watch including the movement and the price (estimate) is in USD$. yung WATCHES INTERNATIONAL catalog okay din to have however the previous editions yung price of the watch is in swiss francs kaya you have to convert pa sometimes no price at all. pero both catalogs are very usefull. it describes the history and watch heritage of the following brands advertised. IMHO.  ;)

lalo na sa rustan's... parang alak, aged! hahaha.. jk
napansin ko kasi sa mga ibang watch shops, magaganda mga sales agents nila... pero sa rustan's makati lang ako nakakita ng mga oldies... hehehe  :D

randy, maganda talaga CALIBRE magazine.  Ang lucerne din may annual magazine na binibigay .. nakakuha ako dati. ok din sya kaso mostly mga relos na binebenta nila although ok na ok din mga laman... but nothing beats the calibre magazine... tama ka, lucerne glorietta na ang may hawak ng panerai ngayon, dun ko nakuha.

Yung 2007 Baselworld and SIHH shows ay this April na... parang car show ito ng mga relos.. dito nilalabas yung mga bagong relos ng mga watch companies... kaya expect mo na after april, ang gaganda ng watch magazines!!!!



Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on March 10, 2007, 08:35:15 AM
lex, according to silver vault binitawan daw nila panerai kasi if they order the requested models majority ibang model (slow moving) ang pinapadala sa kanila kaya daw hirap nila mabenta kasi hindi yun ang hinahanap ng watch connoisseur. ang selling price ng panerai sa lucerne is less 30T compared to silver vault price. gulat nga ako!  :o may isang panerai pa natira sa silver vault pero they are selling it at a discount na which is still higher than lucerne price.  ??? dati nakatangap din ako ng annual ng lucerne but nothing beats calibre magazine. ang kapal at punong puno ng mga articles compared to iW magazine.  :)

Post by: lex on March 11, 2007, 08:46:32 AM
randy, malamang yung natirang panerai sa rustan's eh yung 40mm panerai na nakabracelet (metal) ... medyo maliit ang 40mm sa panerai, pangbabae usually ang 40mm o kaya sa sobrang payat na wrist... mahal din pag nakabracelet at you will miss half the fun pag nakabracelet ka.. part of owning a panerai is the strap changing experience... mapaleather, rubber, velcro, nylon strap pa yan hehe... im not really sure ah, pero parang yung bracelet models ng panerai hindi agad agad napapalitan ng strap.

May nagregalo pala sakin ng Watches Int'l magazine dati... catalogue yun ng mga watches, alphabetically arranged... heaven! hehehe... excited na nga ako sa next issue ng CALIBRE! kelan ba lumabas 2nd issue? quarterly ata labas ng issue eh
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on March 11, 2007, 08:30:28 PM
sir lex, i prefer steel bracelet para wala ng palitan. kasi kapag nasira yung rubber or leather medyo mahal if you are going to replace it w/ an original and you will order it pa sa retailer where you purchased the watch kung walang stock. sabi sa silver vault, sometimes it takes 3 to 4 months para dumating yung order ng strap or steel bracelet.
kung wala ka pa nung wristwatch annual 2007, i recommend you buy it. meron pa akong nakita sa fullybooked sa the block sa sm north edsa. for me mas maganda compared sa iW catalog. i have the 1st edition ng iW catalog (2000), 2003 edition and the 2005. interval ko binili kasi baka wala naman ganoon bago sa watch industry. pero after having the wristwatch annual 2006, i stopped buying the iW catalog. hinanap ko nga baka may back issue pa nung 1st issue ng calibre magazine. wala ako nakita. anyway, i'm also waiting for the next issue. sulit kasi yung Php 275.00 pesos! sikat na nga ang panerai especially sa showbiz! hehehehe...dati there was a time bvlgari ang sikat sa showbiz. marami ang naka bvlgari diagono. ngayon panerai na!
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on March 12, 2007, 02:30:33 AM
will check out the 2007 wristwatch annual... pero sa tingin ko kung bibili ako, later this year pa... para kasama na yung mga new watches na lalabas this april sa Baselworld at SIHH...

Ako naman, dati bracelet gusto ko lagi sa relo... kaso napansin ko medyo masakit sa wrist lalo na pag natutulog ako na nakarelo, nagmamarka sya pag nadaganan. Then sinubukan ko leather straps, ayun mas comfortable para sakin. So ayun, straps na ako lagi... problema nga lang, kumbaga may shelf life lang ang leather straps.. lalo na kung ginagamit mo palagi at sa ating tropical weather, lalo pang compromised ang leather. 

Regarding availability, sa panerai madaming gumagawa ng straps na third party.. Usually mas maganda ang third party straps.. mas radical, mas nag-e-experiment, mas may character kaysa sa OEM straps.  Availability is not a problem, kaso o-order ka online. Pinakamalapit na nagtitinda sa HK.

Ang gandaaah ng PAM111 with the sandwich dial! Ricky Reyes naman ako ngayon ;D. I must agree with Lex on the strap, replacing the strap can change the overall character of the watch. By simply replacing the strap can provide you with more options other than its intended use. How much & where did you get the SC strap Lex? Ganda, sana maka bili din ako (PM mo nalang). Kung meron kang extra bilihin ko nalang ::) Meron magandang after market strap kaso lang medyo stiff ang price…Mario Paci! There’s also an upside on having a Panerai with the oem bracelet. You can put on the strap on these models because the horns locking mechanism can accommodate both strap & bracelet. This option is not available to Panerai models with a strap.

OEM rubber straps should hold up as long as the steel tubes are inserted. Tubes are designed to dissipate tension from the stress points. Kaya Lex, wag kang matakot sa patid sa pating lang kasi masyado makislap yang suot mo. ;D

testing sa beach.. hehe  :D
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on March 18, 2007, 08:31:32 PM
just double check that the crown is fully closed when swimming especially sa dagat. i read an article sa lucerne magazine written by francis kong (motivational speaker who love watches) about his brietling that he wore swimming sa beach eh hindi niya na pansin na na open ang crown kaya pasok ang sea water sa relo at kinalawang agad ang loob. how delicate pa naman ang movement tapos kinalawang.  :'( kaya everytime i swim sa beach with my watch i double check and see to it that naka closed ang crown kahit naka screw-in type crown. mahirap na... :)
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on March 20, 2007, 01:00:40 PM
re: water resistance... tama ka randy, dapat nakascrew-in lagi yan... although, nabasa ko dati, na sa "0" position (hindi naka screw-in) water resistant na din ang relo pero mas protected pa din pag naka screw-in... ayoko i-test yan hehehe... no way!

Regarding water resistant testing... make sure to have your watches tested for water resistance once in a couple of years.... Nasisira din yung mga seals ng relo through time... especially kapag laging exposed sa water, sweat, other liquids... kapag ginagamit palagi sa water activities, once a year check ang kailangan.

straps/bracelet naman: syempre the bracelet is recommended for water activities.. walang problema yan... for those who don't like metal bracelets, a rubber strap would be an option.  Just make sure to rinse the rubber strap with fresh water after using in swimming pools/oceans..  ang leather, avoid contact with any form of liquid. masisira kaagad... pero kapag nabasa accidentally, air dry lang... wag ibilad sa araw... fast eveporation of water would damage the leather.

Nice watches!  By the way I saw some pretty CARBON FIBER straps for Panerai in Komehyo, Nagoya.  I also saw some nasty looking Alligator Panerai staps, not the smooth shiny kind but the pointy, harsh leather.  The top part of the alligator was used, not the belly.  Pricey though at Y30,000

matanong ko lang mga horologists friends: there are many innovative Japanes watch brands today, palagay nyo ba in a 50(or more) years time they would be as "pagnanasaan" as their European counterparts now?  meaning- will their design be as classic (relative of course) as the Panerais?...

i dont want to preempt your kasagutans but i'd like to think of Toyopets and Fiats.  :)

Post by: randypogi on April 05, 2007, 01:08:20 PM
sir corliono, i agree yes! remember seiko has its kinetic movement and citizen its eco-drive.  both famous for those technology. seiko has release their 40th anniversary seiko 5 limited model. nakabili ang kapatid ko and marami raw ang bumili sabi ng seiko. i guess their are plenty of seiko 5 enthusiast. citizen released their perpetual calendar eco drive which was feature in iW magazine. citizen is entering into the complication category of watches. we do not know after 50+ years...IMHO mahirapan lang siguro ang mga japanese brands to enter and really penetrate the high-end swiss watch market because of watch heritage watch connoisseurs are looking for. i believe japanese brands are targetting the mass market. when i was a kid my father gave me his seiko 5 automatic (circa '74) then later on i gave it to our driver as a gift. isipin mo kung nasa akin pa yun...33 years na??? hehehe it was a square white face seiko 5 automatic. classic na yun!  :D ;D

corlioni, hindi pa malawak ang kaalaman ko sa mga relo pero as long as maganda ang movement ng japanese watch, eh siguradong tatagal yan ng maraming taon basta alaga ang makina, at siguradong magiging kanasa-nasa yan balang araw... maganda ring makita mo muna yung history ng watch line na pipiliin mo... usually ito ang makakapagbigay sayo ng idea kung may future ba ito o wala... kung bago yung linya, medyo mahirap masabi kung papatok o hindi...

naalala ko din, unang relo ko, seiko na divers watch... yung orange yung face, all steel... hindi ko na maalala kung nasaan na... sayang, sana nakeep ko yun...  ;)

The brand Credor, a high end division of Seiko? are priced at par with some Rolex and Omega Watches
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on April 09, 2007, 09:45:14 AM
yup CREDOR is the high end brand of SEIKO to enter the 'SONNERIE' complication category.

a sonnerie is a minute repeater like a tower clock - sounds the time not at the will of the wearer, but rather automatically every hour or quarter hour. - wristwatch annual 2007

iba ang craftmanship ng mga ganitong relo at konti lang ang gumagawa (gerald genta). according to calibre magazine the credor sonnerie was launch at 2006 baselworld (the oscars of horology) tapos super limited to 5 pieces! sigurado ako nabili na ng mga collector and watch connoisseur. IMHO. seiko has their spring drive technology din.

citizen has also entered and released their high end model during 2006 baselworld.

MINUTE REPEATER!!!...  this is one interesting feature of a watch, imo.  Isipin mo, may tunog na bell or gong sa hours at quarters yung mechanical watch mo... naimbento ito long time ago para malaman mo yung time kahit sa dilim... of course ngayon may glow in the dark na hehehe...

Ito ang isa sa mga dapat magkaroon ang isang collector... punung puno ng history ang minute repeater feature hehehe... very very interesting!

April na! .. ano kayang bago sa watch world!??!! ... Pasensya dahil ang balita ko lang eh sa panerai hehehe... magkakaceramic radiomir case na... matte black ceramic... bagsik! ...

Hehe.  I was showing Ton my watch last night.  Its an Omega Geneve and it was a pasalubong from my mom when I was still in high school, or about 35 years ago.  It still works perfectly although I don't really get to use it that often.

Guess that reveals my age...

Hehe.  I was showing Ton my watch last night.  Its an Omega Geneve and it was a pasalubong from my mom when I was still in high school, or about 35 years ago.  It still works perfectly although I don't really get to use it that often.

Guess that reveals my age...


sir dennis! that's nice! ... naservice-an na ba yung omega nyo? 

pal, tagal na din ng tag mo... meron ako tag pero nasira... naiwanan kong hindi nakalock yung crown, ayun pinasok ng moisture... until huminto na... quartz yun, f1 chrono ata yun... watch ko nung HS pa... pinaquote ko repair sa watchwork, alimall, cubao halos 11k gagastusin...  :o  halos presyo na yun nung watch dati hahaha... natanggal din yung isang button for start/stop, papalitan yung dial/hands kasi medyo nangitim na... ang daming gagawin parang pinalitan na yung buong relo  ;D 

kahapon napadaan ako sa lucerne, may isang maingay na lalaki, very annoying, nagmumura mura pa, naghahanap kasi sya ng relo, gusto nya ng limited, binigyan ata sya ng audemars piguet na limited edition... nagcocomplain!  ang dami naman daw ng 1000 pieces for a limited edition!... limited edition daw ba yun, eh 1000 pieces ang ginawa... gusto kong batukan... hahaha...  ;D  1000 pieces sa buong mundo.. isipin nya kaya yun hehhee...  anyway, wala lang... ciao!

sa tingin ko kaya nagcomplain at gumawa ng eksena dahil sa presyo ng audemars! kunwari lang na ang issue is the limited edition. hehehehehe... ::) ;D

sakto, i got my tag for 11T in 1991 !
it was my first (only) expensive watch.
nung nasira siya, instead of fixing it, the dealer replaced it with a new and better unit.  :)

hahaha, malamang nga defense mechanism nya lang yung ingay nya hahaha  :D...

pal: 
lakas mo sa dealer mo ah! ...  ;)  mga 91-92 ko din nabili yung tag... nasa akin pa din sya.. kaso malamig na bangkay na... hehhee... i will need to have it fixed soon... sayang naman..

Baselworld / SIHH is coming! ito ang isang bago ng iwc .... square face da vinci... im not sure if it would appeal to iwc enthusiast but the square face is a welcome addition to their line up ... bagong itsura... dig nyo ba ang square face watch?

guys, some news from baselworld:

rolex released a new yacht master II chrono watch deviating from the typical rolex design after 20 years.  ;D

(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/rolex_yachtmaster2-thumb.jpg)

just like the daytona model walang date at yung magnifying glass.  :) sa tingin ko magkakagulo mga rolex connoisseurs once meron na dito sa atin niyan. ganda ng design din!  ;D
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on April 16, 2007, 03:51:56 AM
ouch! ... im not really a fan of the YM ng rolex... yung bagong design medyo lalong hindi ko type... this is a very bold move from rolex... nilakihan din ata nila yung diameter ng bagong YM... very busy dial, imo.

but with rolex's marketing, im sure this would be a sure hit... we'll see!  ;)

Wow at last may nakita rin akong mga watch enthusiasts dito sa pinas. Well I have a radiomir panerai black seal and it cost me around 200k (bought in Singa.). Medyo mahal kasi limited to 1500 pieces lang. At first maraming times ko pinagisipan kung eto or Rolex submariner bibilhin.. But the end, i find it's all worth buying/ :D

Nga pala guys since mga mahilig din tayong lahat sa watches, I found a watch community na siguradong magugustuhan nyo. Bago lang eto pero cool dahil forum to para sa mga pinoy watch enthusiasts na kagaya natin.

Visit nalang kayo and makichat na sa mga fellow watch addicts. Click the banner below

nelyo, ang usapan sa presyo ng black radiomir eh around 6,400 USD daw... pero may nagsasabi 4,400 USD... being ceramic and bagong labas, i would think 6,400 USD would be more accurate sa presyo...  lalabas daw ito around august or september this year... ipon na!!  :D

crusoe... thanks for the link... welcome dito! ... nice watch! i am actually looking for a black seal before i got the radiomir base... kaso the bases really rock my world! hahaha gustong gusto ko kung gaano kapayapa yung dial ng base... walang second hand... you dont live by the second, kumbaga relax na relax ang buhay hahaha...  although syempre i would like to have a couple more panerais (in my dreams), but the 1950 case na at yung 47mm na...

here's a pic of my radiomir with 1950 vintage strap (strap works):

thanks lex. at first medyo naconfuse din ako sa bibilhin ko either go with a more recognized brand ROlex or Panerai... Well I found Panerai watches to be a real beauty talaga. Rolex are very typical na kasi and baka tanongin kapa..  "Bro is that real ?! " hehehe

tanung lang mga boss,, yung radiomir ba tska luminor regarding lang ba to sa pagiging glow in the dark na ilaw ng relo? pati ako naguluhan sa tanung ko ah hehehe
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on April 22, 2007, 09:16:17 AM
sir karloloko, baka ang question mo is "what is the difference between a radiomir and a luminor base?"  ;)

i can only answer in terms of appearance.  radiomir has an oversize crown compared to luminor patented protected crown.  the pins that hold the straps are different.

for more specific answers...calling lex...your inputs are needed... ;D :D ::)

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on April 22, 2007, 11:13:16 AM
hehe randy picture na lang para mas malinaw...

karlo, sa kaliwa yung radiomir, yung luminor sa kanan... magkaibang model line yan ng panerai...

(http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b89/leximp5a5/DSC00283.jpg)

radiomir = 45mm diameter, cushion shape body, strap wire
luminor = 44mm, trademark crown protector sa kanan ng watch

mas kilala yung panerai sa luminor line kasi yung crown protector, pero sa history, radiomir talaga yung nauna... "radiomir" , kasi dati ang ginagamit, radium bromide, a radioactive compound that glows in the dark...

you could actually see the difference of the dial of the radiomir and luminor... larger talaga yung radiomir, even the font size... but amazingly the radiomir wears smaller on the wrist... mas maliit sya tingnan than a smaller 44mm luminor...

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: karlokoloko on April 23, 2007, 01:27:01 AM
ah ok so masmodelo luminor bka masmalakas na yung pag ka glow in the dark nya:) hehehe tnx mga chong 
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: crusoe812 on April 26, 2007, 04:18:03 PM
at saka ang issue ng mga lumang luminous chemicals parang nabubulok sya.. if you can see mga vintage watches specially Rolexes and Panerais. pansinin mo parang nag dedecay yung luminous substance nya...

depende sa model tinio... pero hindi malayong may used na 200k... historic base model before the price increase nasa around 198k, depende sa discount.. mga around average of 170k yan .. but now, nag increase na price, im don't know kung magkano na...

ferrari by OP, around $6,700 plus pataas... do the math, at 47.50 pesos / $1 hehe... ouch!  ;D

hindi lista na utang ah... lista na pa-reserve hehe

eh mahihirapan pa rin sila to get one.  500 watches lang ang release
per model ng ferrari watches sa buong mundo.  ::) IMHO  :D

try mo muna sa lucerne ... nakakatakot bumili sa hindi authorized dealer... anyway, if a fellow paneristi got a watch from the taiwan seller already, then i think that would be ok... but if not, nakakatakot.. i wouldn't give my hard earned moolah hehehe... great choice!!!

of what size are those....my wrist is i would say regular lang 6 1/2 so what size would u suggest?? gusto ko medyo long tail siya...........tnx
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on May 25, 2007, 04:33:35 PM
chief, standard ang size ng strapculture straps... 120/80 mm.
for your wrist size, i would say na medyo may tail na yang size na yan sa iyo...  sa akin kasi 8" size ng wrist ko, hindi long tail... but i really prefer no tail, kasi baka sumabit lang... for your wrist size, tamang tama lang 120/80 i would say... but if you prefer longer, siguro 130/80 would do the trick... you better email the company you're ordering from with regards to the long tail... sasagutin ka nila...

alright! congrats!!!! 

you're rolex will have to rest for a while now... pagpahingahin mo muna sa kahon... hahaha... when i got my panerai, nafeel ko na i've found my match... pahinga muna yung non-panerai watch hehehe... as in since i got my panerai more than 3 mos ago, panerai lang sinusuot ko...

Re: manual winding... when fully wound, 56 hours ang power reserve nyan... although 56 hours ang reserve, i wind it everyday.  Kumbaga bonding time namin ng watches yung pag wind ko... hehe kabaliwan ba?

don't get scared of overwinding it... when it's fully wound, you will feel that it will stop... hindi mo masisira yan...  also, wind it with the lever open ah, baka kasi hindi mo i-open yung lever, masisira seals...

when cleaning, just polish it with the polishing cloth na kasama... but occassionally i give it a bath with water, soap, and a soft brush (yung pang infant)... remove straps first before doing this

On scratches, it's inevitable... magagasgas talaga yan...

Don't wet the leather straps... konting pawis is ok but water sports, better use the rubber strap...

Post by: lex on May 31, 2007, 10:09:32 AM
pretty much straight forward naman pag-alis ng straps... screwdriver lang... pero may trick mga paneristi yung tape trick... nilalagyan muna ng tape yung mga lugs para hindi magasgas yung polished steel pag dumulas yung screwdriver.. hehehe..

sir horne, don't buy sa ebay. class AAA+ replica has waranty & COSC certificates included that looks exactly like the original papers.  napaka mura niyan for 75K. 
mahirap ma-ripped off with your hard earned money.

mark, first time ko narinig yung 'toywatch' brand.  checking sa website niya,
it is a new line of watches designed in italy and the movements are made by citizen.
the price ranges from USD$ 150.00 to USD$ 300.00.  These watches feature stainless steel bezels, mother-of-pearl faces, and many feature clear acrylic wristbands...which can make you look like you're only wearing the face - not a whole watch!
The watches are water resistant to 100 feet, have a one year warranty.  The clear acrylic watch with pink mother-of-pearl face and crystal.  it's being heavily advertised sa states right now having endorsers like oprah winfrey, paris hilton,
jessica alba, etc...check their website to see who are the others wearing the watch.

well, IMHO it looks like a rolex cosmograph daytona.

rolex daytona
(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/RolexDaytona116520.jpg)

with the price and design, it falls in the category together with swatch.
it has no distinct design unique to the brand (compared sa technomarine).  its a combination of rolex daytona (some designs parang typical bezel design ng divers watch) and technomarine in design (hybrid) hehehehe... with the list of 'who's wearing toywatch', they rely on celebrity endorsements to market the brand. the brand is currently new, we don't know if they market the brand correct then this may follow the 'technomarine craze' that took the world by storm.  IMHO.  hope this help.

Panerai article on Men's Vogue magazine, Aug 2006

Threads
War Machines


Panerai is the watch that might have changed the outcome of World War II—and lately it's been turning ordinary men into timepiece obsessives.

(http://www.mensvogue.com/images/clothing/2006/08/21/clar01_panerai_watches.jpg)

If the Italian military had not switched sides to fight alongside the Allies in September 1943, watch collectors would probably not be so passionate about Officine Panerai. They would still be impressive timepieces, beautifully crafted and distinctively styled, but in the service of Fascism alone precision is harder to love. Originally made for Mussolini's commandos sailing mini-submarines into Mediterranean harbors, Panerais are now found strapped to wrists of men struck by the watch's distinctive sapphire crystal face, Arabic numerals, and half-moon crown guard.

These watches are owned and loved by a select group of purists around the world, making it hard to classify the atypical Panerai fanatic. To them, the watch is both an instrument for measuring time and a witness to heroism past. The proud faces often are an inch-and-a-half wide, so the watches are not to be worn lightly—literally or figuratively. Collectors of these watches, known as Paneristi, range from the mildly detail-conscious to the obsessive, versed in every aspect of mechanics and meaning. No one watch is that different from the next in looks or performance. But because they are totems of masculinity and signifiers of taste and status, detail is everything. The Radiomir models, for instance, take their name from a special blend, now discontinued, of gamma-ray-emitting radioactive materials. The numerals once glowed in the ocean's darkest depths.
For some years now in Europe, Panerai watches have been part of the uniform for the man set on a precision course for the blonde at the bar of the Cipriani. In America, thanks to Panerai-wearing celebrities like Brad Pitt, professional athletes (the entire defensive lineup of the Green Bay Packers), and politicians, including Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the popularity of Panerai is rapidly growing. Unlike many types of dress watches that need to be in perfect condition to be fully appreciated, Panerai watches look best when they have been scuffed by life.

The modern Panerai man may not spend much time underwater, but it pays to be prepared, and the watch has a good story to tell. "The luxury of Panerai grew out of its heritage and the purposefulness of each detail," explains designer Ralph Lauren, owner of a highly prized Radiomir model made for the Egyptian military. "These watches were not about the latest fashion—they were designed to work in specific conditions. Their form and beauty were secondary to their function; they're rugged, utilitarian, and handsome."

Founded in Florence in 1860, the company has spent most of the last century and a half in relative obscurity, known only to specialist collectors and the Italian military, who even had the watches designated state secrets. (The company made diving instruments and timing devices for the Italian torpedo boats of World War II, and the wrist-worn compasses and depth gauges are still highly prized.) In 1997 the small, fading firm was bought by luxury giant Compagnie Financière Richemont, which has set about popularizing the brand without diluting the value of exclusivity and tradition. "You don't want to spoil the joy of it being a secret," says the company's U.S. president, Philippe Bonay.

At the same time, Panerai is careful to maintain the interest of collectors who are passionate and fickle and, like many men, react poorly to abrupt change. Alter models too radically and purists balk; do it too slowly and there's little reason to purchase anew. To that end, the company produces only limited quantities in two distinct lines: historic (copies of classic designs with manual winding mechanisms) and contemporary (updated classic designs with automatic movements). Within each group, there are only three basic models, Luminor, Luminor Marina, and Radiomir (ranging in price from $4,000 to $20,000). Panerais often have an eight-day movement with a meter to show how much power remains before the watch needs to be wound again; almost all have a crown guard and a locking lever originally developed to improve water resistance. Several times a year, Panerai releases a new model. Several months ago, for instance, the company offered the Luminor Marina 1950 Eight Days, which uses original movements restored to new condition. Every Panerai is stamped with a unique number to indicate where in the schedule its model was produced. Superstitious collectors request models with serial numbers that correspond to birthdays, lucky numbers, or the numerals on a sports jersey.

Jay Pulli, a Department of Defense contractor with expertise in detecting underground nuclear explosions, recommends a new Radiomir model called the 210 that's an exact duplicate of a World War II model. "Go for the contemporary models made specifically to look like the old ones," he says. But there are also other, perfectly prosaic, reasons for the popularity of Panerai—for example, the dimming eyesight of 40-something men. Film producer Cary Woods (Swingers, Godzilla), owner of a base model Luminor Marina, says he's unmoved by stories of valorous Italian submariners: "I just like the look of it, and being 48 years old, I like the size of it."

The rates of accrual are driving the Panerai market into bonanza mode: New models are doubling and tripling their value in the space of a decade. Last spring, Sotheby's sold a vintage Panerai at auction for $43,200—a rare stainless-steel diver's watch from 1938, the most historically significant model to come on the market yet. In that era, as the clouds of war gathered over Europe, the Italian navy realized it had no battleships capable of matching the British fleet, so commandos were trained to do battle from beneath the waves. For that they would need watches, compasses, and depth gauges, and Panerai produced all of them.

The planning paid off: In mid-December 1941, frogmen stuck explosives on the hulls of two British battleships anchored in the Egyptian port of Alexandria. When the ships sank in fiery wrecks, Prime Minister Winston Churchill told Parliament that "six Italians dressed in rather unusual diving suits and equipped with materials of laughably little cost have swung the military balance of power in the Mediterranean in favor of the Axis." The advantage didn't last, of course, but at least one of the watches did.—EDWARD HELMORE

for breitling navitimer, si randy merong navitimer... randy, advice naman dyan!

Ang masasabi ko sa breitling, it's a good brand... Maganda ang history at makikita mo yung detalye ng gawa nila sa mga relo nila... maraming details, like the dial designs, sa bezel may small B logo pa... most of the breitling watches are polished, so makintab yan! ... be careful kasi prone sa gasgas at nakakasilaw  ;) compared to rolex and omega na mostly brushed metal... the anti-reflective coating of breitling is also topnotch!  The clearest AR crystal na nakita ko eh sa breitling... very minimal reflection... very nice!

Tama na ako sa straps ng PAM hahaha... combined radiomir at luminor straps ko mga 20+ na ata ... hahaha.. nakakaloko kasi straps ng panerai... ganda ng strap mo...

if you are looking for a distinct pilot watch design unique to the brand then breitling is a nice choice.  okay din ang IWC.  for me when it comes to pilot watch only breitling and IWC comes to mind.  rolex gmtII were also made for pilots because of the second
time zone function. 

here is my breitling old navitimer in leather.
(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/DSC01672.jpg)

maganda ang pagka-blue ng navitimer especially when i change the steel bracelet
to blue leather.  naging instant dress watch with an attitude. hahahaha... ::)
you can immediately recognize a breitling navitimer because of its slide rule dial design.
actually hindi ko nga alam kung paano gamitin yan because hindi naman ako pilot.
mas gusto ko yung arrangement ng dials and the date at 3 compared sa other
models wherein ang dials are located at 3, 6 and 9 and the date located sa 4.
its too clutered (see picture below)

(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/a2332212-c587-ss.jpg)

yung nga ang napansin ko na masyado makintab ang steel bracelet.  with the arrangement
ng old navitimer sa 6, 9 & 12 position mas highlighted yung "B" logo sa dial.

Lex, new model from panerai! i got the article sa http://www.thewatchquote.com/Panerai-Luminor-1950-Submersible-Depth-Gauge-Reff-PAM00193-No_6120.htm (http://www.thewatchquote.com/Panerai-Luminor-1950-Submersible-Depth-Gauge-Reff-PAM00193-No_6120.htm)

(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/panerai_luminordepthguage-thumb.jpg)

With the Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge, Officine Panerai is marking its historic continuity and reaffirming its great traditions in the field of professional precision and measuring instruments. The first professional divers’ watches in history supplied to the commandos of the Italian Navy in the first half of the last century were made by Panerai, as were the depth gauges which the pioneers wore on their wrists. Today these two indispensable measuring and checking devices are combined in a single instrument: the Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge. The new model from the Officine Panerai manufacture is a divers’ watch with automatic winding and a chronometer certificate (C.O.S.C.), fitted with a depth gauge, the calibration of which is individually tested and certified by an officially qualified establishment, the Swiss Federal Office for Metrology (METAS). Officine Panerai required this certification for this watch, being well aware that any malfunctioning of the depth gauge or its incorrect calibration could cause a situation of grave risk for divers. The result is that the Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge is officially recognised as a professional instrument.

With the instantly recognizable case of the Luminor models, machined from the solid and distinguished by the bridge with the lever device protecting the winding crown, the Depth Gauge is water resistant to 120 metres, 47 mm in diameter like the historic models and executed in titanium, the hypoallergenic metal which is very tough and at the same time very light; contrasting brushed steel is used for the push-piece of the depth gauge and the bridge protecting the winding crown. The latter, an unmistakable sign of identification for the Luminor models, is a device which ensures the perfect water-resistance of the crown by pressing it coaxially against the case, at the same time preventing accidental movement of the hands, thus making the watch capable of facing great depths and extreme situations. The wide unidirectional rotating bezel, also of brushed steel, carries the references for calculating the times of immersion with oval markers in relief every 5 minutes and studs every 15. It is operated by rotating it in an anti-clockwise direction and makes little clicks at one-minute intervals. Also made of titanium is the screw back, cambered and incised with six deep grooves through which the pressure of the water is sensed by a silicone membrane.

The movement of Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge is the calibre OP XV with a diameter of 13¼ lignes. With bridges and oscillating weight decorated with Côtes de Genève and personalised with the Panerai logo, the movement has 21 jewels and when fully wound it has a winding reserve of more than 42 hours. The balance makes 28,800 vibrations per hour and the stop-seconds device, which halts the small seconds hand at 9 o’clock when the crown is pulled out, enables the watch to be synchronised exactly. Every single movement is adjusted in five positions at the manufacture and is accompanied by the official chronometer certificate issued by C.O.S.C. after two weeks of testing. Constructed using antimagnetic alloys and other advanced materials and subjected to a long series of quality checks, the calibre OP XV is extremely accurate and reliable.

Beneath the sapphire crystal 3 mm thick with anti-reflective treatment, the Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge presents the characteristic Panerai dial of military style. The large markers and two large Arabic numerals are covered in luminous material and the ends of the skeleton hands are also luminous. At 9 o’clock is the dial with the small seconds hand which is stopped when the crown is pulled out, thus enabling it to be accurately synchronised. Outside the time display is the graduated scale which makes this model a unique instrument in the worldwide panorama of professional divers’ watches. This is the depth gauge, divided into sectors with numerals of decreasing size and different sub-division markers, first for each metre and later for every two metres. The first sector, from 0 to 20 metres, has numeric indications and luminous studs in relief for each metre; the second (from 20 to 60), has smaller numerals, markers for each metre and a number or stud every five metres; the third (from 60 to 120), has a marker for every two meters. At the end of the scale appears the inscription ‘Off’, which is the resting position for the yellow central hand of the depth gauge with its arrow point.

Unlike the historic depth gauges made for the Italian Navy, which were usable to a maximim depth of 30 metres, the innovative device of the Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge not only measures up to 120 metres, but it also memorises the maximum depth reached in the course of the dive. This is achieved by a sophisticated electronic device, in practice another independent movement, inserted in the case of the watch. The completely mechanical kind of depth gauge was not chosen, since the available technology would not have satisfied the standards of safety and accuracy demanded by Panerai for a professional instrument. The choice preferred represents a ‘third way’, that is a mechanical movement for measuring time and an electronic module for measuring depth. This measurement is activated by pressing the push-piece at 10 o’clock and the depth is indicated by the central yellow hand with an arrow point which moves round the graduated scale.

Pressing the push-piece before diving activates the depth gauge function and the hand moves from the Off position and points to the maximum depth reached in the course of the previous dive. Pressing the push-piece a second time for 6 seconds, the hand will move to zero and the device is in operation. This means that as the dive takes place the hand will indicate the depth reached, with measurements taken at intervals of 1.25 seconds and with a tolerance of a maximum of 20 cm. During the dive it is possible to check the maximum depth which has been reached, simply by pressing the push-piece; after 6 seconds the hand will automatically return to indicating the depth of the instrument at that moment. The measurement can continue for a maximum of four hours (the average length of a dive is 45 minutes), after which the hand will automatically reposition itself at the Off position.

To operate the depth gauge there is a lithium battery, guaranteed to provide energy to the electronic module for 500 hours; however, for greater safety, the Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge is fitted with a device which warns if the battery is approaching exhaustion; when this comes into effect, at the moment the hand is activated it moves very slowly from the Off position to zero, then returns even more slowly to the Off position and all the functions of the depth gauge are locked. In the interests of safety at sea it is essential to have the watch checked at an Officine Panerai after-sales service centre at least every two years, or more frequently in the event of intensive use of the depth gauge.
Completing the Luminor 1950 Submersible Depth Gauge, which this year will be produced in a millesimed edition of 600 examples (the price being 11,000 euros), are two personalised straps, one in rubber with the classic buckle of large dimensions executed in brushed steel, with the logo of the Officine Panerai Manufacture, and, the other a spare one for use over a diving suit (a screwdriver for changing the strap is also supplied).

Lex ganda talaga ng mga straps ng SC kaso i tried to order once and i was told na
walang kasya sakin kung special order naman, medyo mahal siya.Liit kasi wrist ko
yung OEM na 115/75 medyo maluwag pa...I really like that light tan that you have...it goes  well kahit ano suot mo......Heres a pic of my new Speedy sandwich (3573.50)

mas gusto ko itong model ng omega seamaster.  schumacher model in red yung dial and it shows the date in the dial.

(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/omega_schumacher-thumb.jpg)

by the way, what's your location?  did you buy your omega brand new?  is your omega hand wound?  anyway, take good care of your omega because its not that shock resistant.

Nice nga yan randy... litaw na litaw... pero kung magkakaroon ako nito, yung all black, PVD coated ang type ko... para medyo low key, hehe hindi nakakagulat pag nakita sa kamay ;D

(http://www.chatelco.com/dbimg/watch/small/236.jpg)

ano bang status ng bell & ross sa watch world?

Magtatanong tanong nga ako sa lucerne... i think lucerne carries bell & ross... masipat nga kung maganda sa wrist hehe... sabi ng gf ko, mukha daw alarm clock na nilagyan ng strap... hahaha... pero ngayon medyo na-a-appreciate na nya...  pilot na pilot watch ang dating no? parang taken straight from the cockpit hehe.. very nice!
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on July 30, 2007, 03:08:23 PM
alam ko lex marami sila sa lucerne nung nandun ako 2 weeks ago.  however, their design was already copied by invicta! may nakita ako sa the block sa sm north edsa.

the bell & ross is too squarish for me then because of that kaya malapad ang strap niya using leather strap.  your gf is right na parang may alarm clock ka sa kamay.  pero to level off the design dapat nylon ang strap para hindi bulky an dating.

eto ang pilot watch na nasa wishlist ko...hangang wish na lang hehehe....

wow ganda yan... may non-topgun yan diba?  yan yung ceramic case na pilot watch ng IWC... double chronograph ba yung tawag?  kasi yung isang button sa left ay parang independent timer yan na hindi nakasabay dun sa main chronograph... kumbaga hiwalay yung makina... yan ang nagpamahal dyan, at syempre yung ceramic case... beauty!  rayban na lang ang kulang, tom cruise na tom cruise ka na dyan randy! hahaha

It appears that Bamford & Sons has already created PVD-treated Rolex Submariners and GMT Masters and now they have created an exclusive line of black Rolex Daytona chronographs. I am glad that another company has caught on to the black trend in the watch industry. Rolex came out with a bunch of new and redesigned models this year, but for some reason they missed this. Bamford & Sons has created stainless steel IPods and now you can get your blacked out Rolex even if Rolex does not approve, and this one is $19,500.

galing nito! a company customized a rolex daytona applying PVD coating at ang presyo
in pesos ay Php 877,500++  :o :o :o 

isa pa...an audemars piguet for shaq o'neal!  binaligtad nila yung 2 sa 3 para maging
32 (highlighted in red) which is shaqs jersey number!

correct docjun, PVD coating could be scratched off.. ouch! hehe...

Ang dinig ko very sought after daw yung Stainless steel daytona... Ginawa kasi nila parang limited production... kumbaga less than the demand... parang 400k-500k ata daytona... not very sure ...

i visited cortina watch sa singapore.  ganda ganda niya!!!!  well...tingin tingin lang.
the floorspace is big.  ganda ng layout.  they are almost carrying the highend swiss
brands.  kaya lang at that time inaayos yung panerai corner kaya walang naka display.
meron nga watch store opening at that time ang brand is UBoat.  hindi ako nakapasok
kasi busy sila opening their stocks to be displayed pa lang.  marami din exclusive
brand stores dun like AP and omega sa tabi ng cortina watch.  i tried the JLC master compressor extreme world at 46mm.  ang price ay lumalabas na nasa 587T!  :o  less tax of 7%.  at 46mm it doesn't look big sa wrist ko.   ;D

Here is a prototype of the new Nike Amp+ iPod controlling wristwatch. This photo is far from a final version, but it is what Nike has submitted to the FCC for approval. We had some pics earlier this year on some of the new Nike watches, but I have not heard anything new until now. This particular watch operates on the same non-Bluetooth frequency that the Nike+ iPod Sport kit uses. I am sure many iPod owners will be looking forward to controlling tracks from their wrist.

have you guys heard about meistersinger? i have a friend from uk who collects watches ones told me na may future daw itong brand na ito.

http://www.meistersinger.co.uk

malay natin baka maging a.lange ito in the future...

he already bought several watches from meistersinger

MeisterSinger watches are very simple in design.  The single digit numbers are
preceeded with a zero and the crowning glory of their design is the one handed watch.
the price is not that expensive ranging from USD$ 900 - 3,000.  it is basically a young brand made in germany.

sa mga mahilig sa tag heuer...new carrera model!

(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/tagHeuer_grandcarrera-thumb.jpg)
Here is an image one of the watches from the new TAG Heuer Grand Carrera line. There are three different versions: the Grand Carrera Calibre 6 RS, Grand Carrera Calibre 8 RS Grand Date GMT, and the model shown here the Grand Carrera Chronograph Calibre 17 RS. This COSC-certified chronograph features a 43 mm dial, screw-in crown, screw-in chronograph pushbuttons and hand-applied date window at 6 o'clock. The dial is equipped with two rotating systems with Cotes de Geneve treatments and diamond polished facets: seconds at 3 o'clock; chronograph minute at 9 o'clock. It is available with a black or silver dial on a stainless steel bracelet or alligator strap for $4,495. If I had to buy a TAG Heuer right now this chrono would definitely be on my short list. - http://www.professionalwatches.com/

ganda nito!

Nagulat ako nung nagtanong ng tag heuer carrera, ang mahal! hehe... 100 plus k...

uy kumusta?  the 112 is still rockin' my world hehehe... walang recent strap... sa radiomir meron, nakakuha ako ng OEM calf tan strap sa kaibigan...

the closest to your brother's specs could be the Panerai submersible pam24 ... kaso baligtad, brush bezel, polished case... pero skeleton hands, automatic movement... 44mm din...

(http://www.panerai.com/img/2/prodotti/dettagli/1058859802836_vista_1_g.jpg)

If he wants it brushed... pam25 naman, titanium case na... brushed lahat...

Bracelet model ng titanium na submersible, parang may polished bezel at brushed body... hindi ko lang alam yung model.. i will try to find out about it...

Yung pam GMT, parang may brushed titanium case at polished bezel... like this:

(http://www.panerai.com/img/2/prodotti/1058864821288_foto_scheda.jpg)

pam161 yan.. kaso on bracelet and painted dial

Goodluck!

magugustuhan niya yung 161..kaya lang can you swap this bracelet to a leather strap?
Pasilip naman Rad mo Lex, Im also thinking of getting a Rad to compliment my base..i was droolin at the 249 kaya lang medyo hehehe lammona....sabi mo nga e..maybe someday ..someday...cge na makataya nga ng lotto..

To our watch experts, Lex and Randy:

Is the Nautica brand a good timepiece? I know they're into clothings but they recently came out with a watch line. Saw a nice design in Rockwell, kaya lang hindi ako sure kung good buy ire.  ???

What you think?  :)

TIA

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on September 03, 2007, 12:41:33 PM
ed, si randy mas expert sakin... haha...

I've seen the nautica watches... ok naman ang nautica, but these are not comparable to higher end watches.  I presume most ,if not all, of the nautica watches are quartz (battery operated) ... Nagpapamahal / Nagpapalaki ng value kasi sa relo if they are automatic, lalo na yung mga watch brands na gumagawa mismo ng sarili nilang movement. Also the history plays an important role if the watch brand is good. 

With regards to the performance, i guess nautica watches are as good as other watches. just don't expect these watches to last 10-20 years, yung tipong ipapamana mo sa next generation ala patek philippe hehe

Ed, if you want a saling watch, eto na lang:

ML2x5toRX, yes i think you could change the bracelet of the 161 to a strap... but it would be better to check the dealer about this... mahirap na hehee...

Eto radiomir base ko, pam210 on Strap-works Choco Vintage Strap:

this is the watch brand that sponsored luna rossa during the america's cup.  It is
a swiss brand.  medyo dying na siya noon at that time pero when they relaunch the
brand with new designs biglang sumikat!  mahirap nga maghanap ng ganitong relo
dito kasi malakas ang demand konti lang ang supply. this is a dream watch for me.

kung di ako nagkakamali, yun ang pwesto ng mga hands para ma-display ng mabuti yung face ng watch na walang natatakpan na pangalan or anything else that's written on the watch. it's a marketing/sales-influenced consideration.

tama ba, mga expert?

I have been goin back and forth to ORIS shop in Mall of Asia to get a hold of the Carlos Coste Limited Edition Titanium watch but unfortunately they said that the watch is all sold out because it is  limited to 2000 units only

This afternoon I was walking in the  watchworld store in japan and I asked the salesperson if they have the Coste watch and I was surprised when the guy came back and told me there is one on reserve but the buyer never came back for the watch.

I finally had one after months of looking around.  It is 187/2000.  pretty big watch at 47mm.

here is a pic but kinda blurry cos madilim dito sa room

The new Limited Edition Carlos Coste Chrono is probably the nicest watch Oris introduced at Baselworld. This beast has a massive 47 mm titanium case with a a 4.8 mm sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 1000 m. The limited edition version is named after Oris brand ambassador Carlos Coste who is the free-diving world record holder. The dial is very cool with orange accents, orange luminous paint and a black dial with a printed wave design. There are 2000 editions available worldwide for $3195. Pre-order now at WorldLux. - www.professionalwatch

Mga bosing, i mean to offend no one but the reason why watches are displayed at 10:10 is because this was actually the time the first watch was invented. Not yet a chronometer i suppose but a watch nonetheless. Now, if anyone out there knows what manufacturer it was who first made it, i'll buy you diinner in a resto of your choice. Ciao!  :)

i agree with ton!  sa tingin ko rin unang relo to tell time is the sun dial used by the
egyptians.  the first mechanical watch 'water clock' was first invented sa china ayon sa napanood ko sa discovery channel.  so mga guys...mag research tayo sayang din yung

so either or na lang

a)  vacheron constantin

AFAIK Re. Vacheron Constantin, probably Vacheron is older.  Vacheron was the watch maker in a nondescript village if I'm not mistaken.  His watches were just being sold within his village. Constantin was a businessman/marketing man kung baga who saw how Vacheron was making really exquisite pieces.  Constantin started selling Vacheron outside the village and the country and eventually the partnership was formed. Constantin made the brand Vacheron Constantin popular. I was lucky enough to see a Vacheron (hindi pa Vacheron Constantin) hunters pocketwatch in the 90s sayang I didn't buy it non-runner kasi.  Randy, how does the Rolex Steve McQueen look?

PANERAI is in my wish list.  What i have is the Oris Carlos Coste Titanium LE,  almost the same sa bottom ng pic(chrono un).  I found the pic sa net, cant help but share it, ang gande e.

I found 7 pcs of pre owned Panerai Ferrari.........if you wanna get one lemme know.  Meron store dito  sa Japan na super dami ng selection.  One big building, puro watches lang.

Haha parang willy wonka, randy. Sarap siguro makapunta sa watch place na yan sa japan. Mga hapon baliw na baliw yan sa relo.

bry, congrats nga pala sa oris.

ang daming preowned ferrari panerai ah. Alam nyo sa panerai int'l forums hindi masyado pinaguusapan ang ferrari line. Ang mga paneristi talaga mas geared toward the historic look of the luminor and radiomir line. Pero im sure mabenta din ferrari line dahil sa ferrari fans hehe

breaking news!

The Richemont Group just acquired Manufacture Roger Dubuis. Richemont owns leading luxury brands: Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Vacheron Constantin, Officine Panerai, IWC, Baume & Mercier, Piaget, Jaeger-LeCoultre, A. Lange & Söhne, and Montblanc. - via richemont

the roger dubuis watch.
(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/untitled2.jpg)

Roger Dubuis debuted as an independent watch maker in 1980. Born in Geneva, he was literally surrounded by many of the world's leading experts and, thus, it was natural that his interest in timepieces and his entrepreneurial spirit would lead him to establish his own manufactory in 1995. The popularity of Roger Dubuis is growing steadily as the world becomes familiar with the elegant craftsmanship that is the hallmark of this young company. read more

Special Features
The partnership between Roger Dubuis and Carlos Dias resulted in the establishment of this fine company. The idea was to create watches based on tradition - but with an eye to the future. The original name was Sogem SA, changed later to Roger Dubuis.

Among the company's special features:

The Roger Dubuis Horloger Genevois has been granted the honor of carrying the famous coat of arms of the City of Geneva. This recognizes a manufacturer's compliance with the strict standards set forth in the seventeenth century; the mechanical movements of the watches have been assembled in the Canton of Geneva and strict technical requirements and standards are maintained.


though a young brand with its technical/mechanical innovation, won awards and was granted the honor of carrying the famous coat of arms of the city of geneva.  every dubuis watch is hand made and always in limited edition.  prices ranges from $15,000 to 100,000++.  they have almost the story of frank muller watches.

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on October 05, 2007, 02:35:57 AM
lex, wala pang post si mr. new watch owner?

anyway, below is a $100,000 panerai tourbillion! a whopping Php4.5M!!!
presong isang bahay at lupa!

(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/randypogi_photos/untitled3.jpg)
Panerai used the exclusive P.2005 calibre movement in creating their latest wristwatch, the Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT. This movement and watch were created entirely by Panerai in house. The tourbillon is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback and there is a small dial on the front dial which rotates every 30 seconds to indicate the tourbillon function. The other small dial on the right rotates every 24 hours and indicates AM or PM. This is one of Officine Panerai's most complicated wristwatches to date. If you really like this watch you will have to come up with a little over $100K and they are limited, so act fast.

Yesterday, I saw a shop in the outskirts of Funan selling pre-owned watches. What caught my attention is the Panerai PAM 195 Luminor Marina in PVD coating. And it comes with an elephant skin watch strap. Hmmnn.. so someone killed an elephant for that watch huh!

And by the way, checked at the back and it is watch number 112 of 200! WTF?!?! Panerai only created 200 units of such a beauty?!

About the price?

hehehehe...

sekwet!  ;D

anyways.. guys, how safe is it to buy watches like this in a second hand shop? considering the price, it's really very hard to have a very pricey mistake. there is a PAM 25 there sitting on the shelf selling for $6,830. (times 30).
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: docjun on October 23, 2007, 08:18:16 AM
The watch is good alright, but the value is scary my friend. What makes it more scary is where you'll get it from. If you plan to collect it fine, but get someone knowlegable enough to check out the timepiece just to be sure. Serial numbers should pan out with the official data book, previos owner/s. Was the watch declared stolen? Stuff like that, hey opening the watch won't be a bad idea right? For that price i'd get me a pre-owned rolex for more assurance of value. That being said and you still want the watch.......what the heck, buy it!  ;D

I checked the authenticity of the watch and the shopowner guaranteed that it's not a stolen set. There is something that is even more scary that what you said docjun.. you know what is it?

Nb, did you get the pvd? Sorry im using a phone to surf kaya hindi ko macut yung address ng pic. That's a great watch. Pvds are very sought after model kasi wala nang production nyan. Maganda ang panerai kasi very limited lang ang production per year ng mga models. Around average of 1500 pieces per model a year lang. Some models mas madami pa, some fewer pa. Unlike rolex which is making hundreds of thousand watches per model per year. Kaya madami kang makikitang nakarolex pero bihira ang panerai. Congrats! Sulit yan. Welcome to the dark side hehe now strap hunting naman haha
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: noblewolf on October 23, 2007, 03:28:43 PM
hahaha! thanks much! a bit heavy nga lang compared dun sa longines prestige ko. yeah it's a pvd. hindi naman gaano gasgasin ang pvd. pero i've heard from some paneristis na mas mahal daw ang pvd coating kesa gold plating. totoo ba yun? actually may gasgas sa may bandang gilid pero hindi dun sa extent na lumalabas yung kulay nung ilalim. as of now kuntento muna ako sa strap. it's an elephant skin strap. tama na muna at baka sa kalye na ako matutulog nito. ala na pambayad ng kwarto. hahahaha.

meron ako dvd compilation about panerai. convert ko na para sa phone ko kasi nakakabaliw panoorin e. it's about the evolution of panerai. and you can see how they do this piece of beauty from the piece of sheet metal. sayang share ko sana sa inyo kaya lang medyo malayo tayo e. hehehe..

Badtrip lang availability. Sa u.s.a. pa umuorder.

last night while with some friends here.. someone offered a wristwatch for just S$450. it's an antique working wristwatch, the leather strap is quite a mess already and the guy said his father gave it to him but he don't know how to appreciate it.

THE WATCH IS A 1949 VACHERON CONSTANTIN GOLD FACE GENEVE 18 JEWELS WITH SELF-WINDING MECHANISM!

sabi ko kunin ko ngayon..mangungutang lang muna ako..

called him this morning..actually just now.. and he said it's already sold for S$300!

wahhhhhhhh!!!!!

kaya lang may preference talaga ako sa relo, yung tipong bagay naman sa lifestyle ng vespa rider, medyo rugged, kasi kung naka VC or patek ka, hindi bagay sa vespa hahahaha... sour graping lang po... sino ba aayaw sa patek o vc...?

the paneristi pricelist is quite accurate... with the buying power of peso ngayon, medyo bumaba siguro presyo ng mga relo sa lucerne... sino bang nakadalaw sa lucerne lately? hehe matagal nako hindi nakakadaan...

its no USD lex. its SingD. so it's cheaper. it's not a class A replica. I can assure that. kasi even my singaporean friend na rolex enthusiast guaranteed that the watch is genuine. the fart has a lot of vintage watch. now he's texting us that he's selling a vintage 1960 patek and breitling. but now he learned his lesson na. too bad.  ;D  the guy is just on his early 20's and seems that he doesn't know anything about the piece of gems he's giving away. so i told him not to post any pics anywhere. not even on ebay. hehehehe...

will post pics soon..

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on October 28, 2007, 01:38:08 PM
ML2x5toRX.. yung 112 luminor base is still with me pati yung 210 radiomir base...

Wow! you bought a 210?  sabi ng kakilala ko na dating paneristi (ngayon nasa VC lines na kasi sya haha) kapag nagradiomir ka na, true blue paneristi ka na kasi bihira yung mabighani sa radiomir... usually sa luminor naaattract mga interesado sa panerai... dahil na din sa characteristic bridge sa crown...

Good choice on the radiomir... the radiomir is more comfortable to wear especially inside a dress shirt kasi yung luminor pumupunit ng cuff yun sa kapal ng watch hahaha... yung radiomir, mas manipis.. mas malalaki yung numbers...

Pam88 ayos yan! ... may isa tayong kaibigan dito sa vespinoy naka88 din... nice looking watch, im just concerned about the white hands and the white second hand ring, hindi ba nakakalito sa pagbasa ng oras kapag nagkatapat yung white hands at white background ng second hand ring?

nice vintage strap on the radiomir... yan ba yung Ammo strap?

NW, wow ok yang mga vintage watches na binebenta.. mas ok patek.. nasa linya pa din yung itsura... yung breitling kasi iba na itsura ng mga watches nila ngayon... mura yang patek hehehe... ayos yang nakilala mo ah hehe...

wow watta wonderful watches right there!

yup lex..wala na sa hitsura yung breitling. pati nga yung vc nasa line pa rin yung design ng dial nya.. sayang talaga yun.

anyways ganda ng radiomir mo lex.. photogenic! hehehe...

ganda ng newest addition ng radiomir 10days gmt platinum. 45mm case hewn from polished platinum. ganda! 50 sets lang ginawa.. siguradong aabot ng milyon isa nun.. hehehe..

guys how do you this gracebros watch? parang torbuillion style


Gracebros Men Watch, Luna Phase, white Dial, automatic 100% NEW!

- Diametre without crown: 30mm, thickness: 8mm

noblewolf, mukang you are now hooked or bitten by the watch bug?! hehehe...
anyway, it's the first time i heard the brand. though it may be affordable, you invest on a timepiece for its brand heritage and later on you can sell it higher because of the resale value or give it to your next generation (patek famous line). you will never go wrong with good brands.  ;D

Dami christmas gift ni Daddy D!!! may PX2 na may PS pa!!!

Am starting my own little collection, thanks to Grandestan, medyo na-boost yung nasa safebox ko.  Am thinking of getting some more... and am torn between self winds, manual winds or battery operated ones.  I guess my question is in terms of longevity, which type should i go for.  Will it ever happene na yun battery, for example nang isang watch, nagiging obsolete and wala ka na mabibili after 20 years? Sayang kasi if you buy a nice expensive watch na battery operated and after some years, di mo na magamit kasi wala na battery.

Thanks

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on January 31, 2008, 04:29:06 PM
mostly yung mga collectors self-winding (automatic) and manual winding watches ang kinocollect.  Ang battery operated kasi hindi masyado mataas value, although may mga battery operated din naman na mataas ang value... like mga rare old swatch watches, mataas presyo nun sa mga auctions...

Problem with battery operated watches, may chance na magleak yung battery, naku delikado yun sa movement ng watch.. nakakasira.

personally, i don't want to invest in a battery operated watch (quartz) kasi mas bilib ako sa self winding or manual winding watch kasi ang power nung watch, nagegenerate sa mismong movement ng watch.. galing eh, no batteries required, less pollution, less gastos...

congrats sa newly acquired timepieces! Pics naman!  ;)

that series...masyadong lang mabigat saka super thick compared sa 25  24 saka 199..its the Blue Bomba...

Sure, this is the same model as the one I'm wearing now...

I got this in a shopping mall in KL, Malaysia for about 11 or 12,000 pesos I think.

What can I say about my Seiko 5, hmm...metal strap quality is so-so as I get an irritating squeaky sound from the metal bracelet. But aside from that, sulit na sulit naman sya and I like its sporty look. Pangharabas ren kung baga hehe. Kakahinayang kasi sumuot ng Swiss watches for everyday use and sumasama loob kung magasgas.

Ang hindi ko lang gusto dun sa 8 days IWC Ingenieur, inalis na ata nila yung anti-magnetic case nung movement ... eh yun yung pinagmamalaki nila sa ingeniuer... oh well, to accommodate the bigger 8 days movement...

Hmm...less than 2 years ago, nakakuwa ako ng brand new Sea Dweller for mga 190k. New Submariner should be mga around 180k lang that time.

Siguro pwede mo pa tawaran ng konti :)

ryan is right! tawaran mo pa kasi yun yung price at 160k selling is when he acquired it nung 2002.

tawaran ang alin po, bnew or preowned?

there's always a risk in buying preowned.. unless kilala mo yung nagtitinda at alam mo kung paano inalagaan yung watch...

brand new sub nasa ganyang presyo nga talaga ngayon... yung 160k is just about right dito sa atin... buti pa sa timezone site, makakabili ka pa ng sub ng us $3200 kaso US sales mostly...

If you have extra money, go for brandnew.  Ako if im buying preowned, i would go for vintage subs.. yan pangarap ko kahit 16800 lang na naninilaw nilaw yung hands at markers.. late 70s to early 80s production... very nice!!!

....Lex, salamat sa kind words, ganda talaga ang 25 with the waffle dial and Ti case, i actually considered that and the 243 because of its 1950 case...I had a 212 if you remember and the 1950 case is so comfy to wear...i tried the 25 but the titanium case seems to light for me and got an offer for a mint 199 i cant passed...in the end masaya ako sa naing decision ko....any new pics of your 112 and 210?

Thanks!  I haven't seen a PVD pam in the flesh... sana makakita someday... yung ginagawa ata ng mga paneristi ay yung DLC (diamond like carbon) coating, parang PVD... mukhang maganda naman... kaso mavo-void ata warranty pag ganyan...

Painted dialed 112 ata series G or earlier... pero pam 0 (logo), painted talaga yun, may old panerai logo ka pa hehe.. sige balitaan mo kami dito pag sure ka na sa DLC project mo hehe.. cool yan!

nice one francis... iba na kulay ng vespa mo? sorry hindi na ako nakakasama...

anyway, i'm selling a watch:
baka may interesado:

I'm selling my Dievas Kampfschwimmer. It is used. In very good working condition, still under warranty (March 2009) from Gnomon Watches.  I bought it straight from gnomon.com.  Mineral crystal and body has few hairline scratches which is inevitable... ganun talaga pag mineral crystal at polished s.steel.. but basically the watch is in great shape... Feel free to setup a meeting for inspection.  It has an aftermarket Dela Penne 26/26mm leather strap (around 7.5k pesos value).  A very nice aftermarket strap, it's butter soft! You get it for Free! The original unused strap still with the package.  Includes the outer box, inner polycarbonate box, watch pillow, hang tag, warranty card.  Priced at 25k pesos... Selling to fund other interests :)  Thanks!

share ko lang din kahit fraction lang ang presyo sa mga relo sa thread na ito. hehehe. i was walking around ION Orchard area last night when I saw this watch on its glass enclosure, sabi nung salesman, it can also be a phone... lagi kase naiiwan phone ko sa bahay.. nakiusyoso konti.. ended up hearing a tiny voice "daddy take me home!"  ;Dtoinks ;D... and the rest is history. it's amazing how the touchscreen phone and it's usual standard features, video call camera, and a 3.5G speed capability stuffed into a circuitry as small as the diameter same as the length of a simcard and about 7mm thick stuffed into its stainless bezel. and yeah, at least it also tells time.. hahaha

Nice piece Jamboy, Sinn is famous for their case treatment up to 1200 vickers. Tegimented steel makes this case literally scratch proof. I will pick this watch over a bell & ross any day.

Wear it in good health :)

There is no Authorized Dealer for Sinn Watches in the Philippines. There were rumors some two years back that Lucerne will carry the brand due to the smashing success of their U1 & U2 line.

The closest AD in the region is Sincere & Hour Glass (SG, KL, & HK). Although there are a few people in the watch community that I know of who are openly selling Sinn as gray market pieces. Prices in this market is very competitive, they offer deep discounts & somethimes even outsell the AD abroad.

The model I like best among all ranges is the Sinn U1 (Black Ghost) Hour Glass Limited Edition. I saw this piece from a friend a while back. This model goes for 95K to 120K range depending on who is the re-seller.

Hope this helps...

sa mga vacheron collectors.. may pinapabenta ung friend ko na singaporean dito.. a 100+years old piece that stood the test of time. :D

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v728/Promethus/L1030305.jpg)

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v728/Promethus/L1030238.jpg)

"You are looking at a real piece of horology history from one of the Holy Trinities of Swiss Watch Making.

A 100+year old piece from Vacheron Constantin.
Original High Grade movement with Patented Regulator
in good working condition, Original Breguet style hands and Original Enamel Dial
in it's original condition with no restoration.

Based on it's serial number, this watch is made probably between 1900 -1905.
It's originally a Pocket Watch that have been re-cased into a Pilot watch case
with big Onion winding crown. Lugs are 23mm+. fits 24mm with no problem.

Horology have come a very long from a century ago, but it's classics like this, that defines it's Journey, History and Heritage. Classics will always be classics, it's style and presence will always be Timeless.

The & from Vacheron & Constantin was dropped and officially became what is known today as Vacheron Constantin in 1970.
The first boutique in Geneva was opened in 1906, which means this piece predates the boutique.

Case: Steel. 45mm without Crown. 52mm with Crown. Snap close back.

Dial: Aged Creamed Colored original Enamel Dial. Sub Dial Seconds @ 6.

Movement: Low Beat Manual Winding VC in-house manufacture with Patented Regulator. Patent Date Jan.8.1884.
Keeps very good time with about 30hours Power Reserve. This is a very sturdy movement and will only gain to benefit from a routine servicing from an experienced Watch Maker.

Strap: A 24mm used Rios Black Aliigator Style Strap will be provided. Fits the theme of the watch nicely.

It's hard to come by old pieces like these in a nice case with all it's parts intact and original. Alot of others in the market have been either Franken or have their dial restored. Worst of all, of recent years, alot of Pieces from Russia / Bulgaria are actually fakes made to look very much alike. Due to the lack of exposure and knowledge, victims have been known to pay big bucks for them. I am not an expert, but this have been authenticated by VC collectors.

Potential Owners Take Note! Watches like these are not meant to be exposed to water and shocks!"

anybody know this watch?

Post by: randypogi on July 20, 2011, 05:53:14 PM
nb, stay away or let go of the offer.  first, its a quartz movement therefore hindi tinatangap mr. tumbunting.
second, locman (made in italy and not a swiss brand) has no brand heritage and third, questionable ang resale value. 

sana kung rolex pa yung swap offer then go for it... ;D IMHO

Haayyzz.. Too late. Its in my hands already.. :(

Nung nakita ko kase, may bumulong sa akin ng "take me home daddy..". Nagustuhan ko yung weight despite its size, and it feels more like a heavier wristband kase nakaconcave yung cover sa likod.

Anyways, parang pumatak lang ng 1/3 of the amazon price basing on the price of my merchandise..

Is it bad?

poliboy, been loyal to CASIO G-SHOCKS for the longest time, but decided to get the SUUNTO CORE because of the ABC funtions.  kailan pa kaya magkakaroon ng G-SHOCK na ABC????  di ko type and PROTREK!  anyway since CORE and VECTOR are pretty much comparable in terms of functions, here is my feedback.  in terms of ABC funtion, reliable naman sya.  nagamit ko na sya on my hiking adventures.  yong depth meter di ko pa nasubukan, di pa ako nakaka dive!

workmanship, i find the CASIO more superior compared to SUUNTO.  my GSHOCKS are made in thailand/malaysia? while my CORE is made in china.  aesthetic, mas type ko ang porma ng GSHOCKS than SUUNTOS...  most GSHOCKS are cheaper than SUUNTO CORE/VECTOR...  pero, nagsisi nga ako for buying CORE...  i should have just continue with my dream of completing MASTER of G series...  :P

BTW, just got the atomic RISEMAN, kaya lang di yata umaabot dito sa manila ang sync signal!

Tops, is the Vector made in China also? It seems that quartz timepieces are apparently popular now for divers. Use to dive in the mid 80s to mid 90s, been dry for more than a decade. Anyway I used an ever reliable Seiko Dive Watch, lost count of how many logged dives I've had with it, also had a Doxa which I eventually traded with an early Explorer I. I used the Seiko more often. I was paranoid to dive with a quartz thinking that it might run out of batteries while on a dive.  :)

doc, not sure if VECTOR is made in china...  but my CORE has made in china in the box and "design in finland" at its back...  with my dive buddies on MOSQUITOS and STINGERS, ginagawang fashion statement itong mga suunto dive instruments!  :D  napabili tuloy ako ng core and only to noticed, iba na ang craftmanships compared to those titanium/steel suuntos...  with suuntos focus on consumer market, looks like they shift their manufacturing to cheaper location like china...

agree on seiko divers.  got three of them already, pero napansin ko lang pag nabuksan na ito, expect to have it repaired again in 1-2yrs?  still i like its classic look!

Thanks tops, never thought that it could be used as a dive watch as well. maporma kasi kung sa maporma eh, but i will relook into the Gshock, marami lang din kasi fake na nagsilabasan eh. will try to make sure muna that its made (vector) in finland and not in china..

The G-shock and the Vector are quite popular right now in the battle fronts. Going back to the Suunto brand, when I was actively diving, my compass and depth gauge was a Suunto, back then it was a rare brand unlike USD. They were known for accurate maritime and geological instruments.

Be sure to set the home time to HKG, then ilagay mo sa bintana around 12mn to 5am, magsy-sync yan, esp. kung nakatira ka sa medyo mataas na lugar...

Anyway, to bosero, my gxw-56e synced the other night while i was sleeping, 4:02am. 2nd floor, near the window, and the gshock on my wrist. May pagasa ang atomic gshocks dito :)

Diameter of bezel: 42.5mm
Diameter including crown: 46mm
Thickness: 13.5mm
Lug width: 22mm

lex, meron din SKX 007 in rubber strap. advice ko is to buy SKX 007 in jubilee bracelet then
just buy a seiko rubber strap.  mahirap kasi maghanap ng SS bracelet if ever you change your
mind to change from rubber to SS bracelet.

you the best discount.  look for beth or cindy.  or masmura ng mga PHP200.00 compared to time trend megamall is time trend sm manila c/o ma'am elena kaya lang ang layo kasi ng sm manila. yung sa akin is an SKZ329 (all black).  nakuha ko sa time trend
sm manila ng PHP7k tapos nagpalit ako ng zulu strap.

yung 6105 is a seiko divers vintage model.  mahirap ata maghanap niyan.  actually naghahanap din ako niyan.
masmadaling maghanap ng 6309 seiko divers (vintage pa rin).  below is my 6309 seiko divers.  all orig from dial, hands (patina), bezel and bezel inset.  sabi nga ni C mukha daw pagod na yung relo kakabigay ng oras hehehe.

tops, automatic or quartz?  you can bring it to mang andrew at makati cinema square near unique vision 3rd floor(?) ata.
madali naman kasi maayos ang seiko.  or you can bring it to any seiko service center kung malayo ang MCS from
your place.

randy, salamat!  madalas yata don ako sa glorietta seiko service center.  lahat ng divers ko automatic...  naka tatlo(?) seiko divers na automatic, at napapansin ko after 2-3yrs kailangan ng pa repair...  then after it was serviced, less than two yrs lang, repair ulit?  just my observation on my those watches...  pag tinamad na akong dalhin sa sevice center kaya bumili ako ng bago...  now that the 3nd watch is down, 3rd service na kung sakali...  nag iisip tuloy ako, should i just have it as paper weight then get the 4th seiko divers???   ;D

ganito ba talaga ang automatic watchs?  parang may hangganan ang mechanical parts?   ???

BTW, i got my first seiko divers as a gift from my parents when i graduated high school!  kaya, more than 2 decades of seiko divers automatic loyalist na!   ;)

i don't know about divers watches na automatic - but i used my oris big crown for 8 years straight without it needing any repair. but then i don't use it to dive. yung tag ko din na matic from '91 never needed fixing. until now umaandar naman when i use it.
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on September 13, 2011, 05:25:46 PM
usually ang recommendation ng mga manufacturer is have your automatic serviced every 5 years. 
impossible ata for a seiko divers to have it serviced 2-3 years?!  ???  IMHO.  ang seiko parang vespa sa tibay
ng mechanism and marami din aftermarket parts if you want to customize according to your taste.  ;D

you've got PM tops.

Post by: atumali on September 26, 2011, 09:58:02 AM
On maintenance of mechanical watches, they need to be overhauled every 4-5 years assuming the one who did the work is competent. The reason for the frequent overhaul is to clean the mechanism and lube it. Regulating the watch is also included in the overhaul. I have a 70-year old dress watch that I had services in the US. The watch was so well regulated that it does not lose a minute in a week.

Speaking of Seiko's, anyone want to part with their Grand Seiko, preferably the 60's or 70's vintage? :)

And heres another one a 3month old Gs sleeping in my watch box....

Eminem is wearing a white DW-6900NB-7JF G-Shock in his new music video with Dr. Dre. The video is for the "I need a Doctor" track. This watch came out recently in Japan, and it will have a US release in March. So if you want to buy one, you should be able to pick up one of these watches soon at the usual retailers.

They called it G-shock mirror face ;)

@lex & nelyo,

ang alam ko sa SBDX011 (tuna) & SBDX001 (marinemaster) are japan domestic models (JDM).
the JDMs are available for domestic market (japan market only) however there are sites that carry the models.

check the following:

seiya
higuchi
chino
chronograph.com
bodying.com

you'll never go wrong with this models!  ;D

Ako wala alam sa relo. Puro mumurahin lang di gaya ni Nelyo bigatin.  :P

Pero on my personal experience I bought a CASIO watch at ebay. May Barometer and altimeter para sa MTB. Mas mura ko siya nakuha compared sa local price of the same model sa Time Depot.ebat price was around P3300 inclusive of shipping at my provincial address with no additional tax. Local price is P6999. Malaki difference kahit 20% off.

Ok yan corrine! Kaya lang baka mahirapan ka hanapin, at baka mahal na kung makakita ka... yung hype kasi hehe... anyway, pwede din yan sa freezer hehe... re: frogman, ok din naman, medyo mahal kaso yung GW200 series, discontinued na yun... ang frogman ngayon ay yung GF1000 or GWF1000 (atomic) ...

re: frogman GW225, it's translucent, if you are a sneakers addict at mahilig sa jordan shoes, yung glorious gold parang sole ng jordan 11, nagyeyellow sya.. i dig it, i like it! pero baka sa iba isipin nagmumukhang luma.. here's mine:

gusto mo ba white gshock?  try mo tingnan muna yung GA100 at GA110 na white.. baka mas gusto mo kasi mas malaki at may analog/digital display... also the GA120 try mo tingnan, it's patterned from a motorcycle kaya mas bagay sa mga riders ;-)

Di ba may G-Shock analog ang design? I find it easier to take my patients vital signs with a second hand kasi. I know meroon dati but never got around to buying it.

Doc jojo, nakalimutan ko may sky cockpit nga pala (may second hand)... ang mahal kasi nito kaya nawala sa isip ko hehe

crappy camera... sorry. 

anyway, here's my contribution to this thread. 

Omega De Ville Prestige Quartz.  34mm case, quartz movement.

I know everyone's into the XXL cases and hyper complicated movements these days, but what can I say, I like the classic look  ;)

The best part... it was given as a gift, and that's the most important reason for wearing a watch.  Thanks :-*

Yes calling chief Randypogi San ba may pinaka murang bilihan ng seiko watches?
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on October 11, 2011, 06:15:10 AM
@ryandude, punta ka sa time trend sm mega and/or sm manila (near manila cityhall).  mas mura sa TT sm manila
by PHP100-200 vs TT sm mega.  pero hassle going to there sa sm manila and they will give you a generic box for the watch.
check TT sm mega if you like to meet cute salesladies (cindy). 

TT sm mega - 0916 4568940 look for beth
TT sm manila - 522 8855 (landline) look for ma'am elena

@doomzday, you have to see the sea urchin in actual.  maganda sana siya pero yung crown niya is too small.
anyway, magbago pa isip mo niyan when you try and see the seiko's in TT.  by the way, you can also check HOURGLASS on
the 2nd level near the bridgeway (mga kainan) at sm mega.

 samahan kita if i'm free ;D

will surely visit TT when i get back.

G-Shock gurus! I have a G-Shock which I won in a raffle more than ten years ago. It came with a leather band with orange stripes which I hated and stripped with acetone, hehehe. I also remember getting a new pair of straps for it which I got from the G-Shocks disributor's office in San Fransisco, Del Monte in QC but after one crash, the strap got messed up and I had to put the ugly straps on. Well, I know the this watch is in working condition but I haven't used it for more than 8 years. Dahil lang sa thread na ito, naisipan kong hanapin at akin nga itong nahanap!

I want to have this cleaned and serviced and put a new strap on, where do I do this? From what I remember, this has 2 batteries. And can someone help me identify the model? It says G-Shock GMX OPM. Maraming salamat po.

Strap na nalansag. This used to have orange horizontal stripes.

yey, dalhin mo sa time depot...  kung papalit ka ng battery, they will have it cleaned na rin...  at dahil lumang model ito, mahirap makahanap ng casing...  but the least time depot can do, sukatin ang lapad ng strap, baka may mag kasya...  dahil matagal na rin ito, baka LCD nito lalabo na?

i have a friend in SG who ordered a pilot Stowa.  it took 3 months bago nya nakuha.  halos maiyak-iyak daw siya.  he thought na scam na sya.

@ chief lex yes I agree but this model is DW-290. ;)

Ethan hawk likes casio yung ibang gamit nya sa mission impossible is MR-G model... ;)

Tagal kong hinanap tong model na ito kakaiba kasi yung shape nya retro talaga. Parang hawig sya ng GAUSSMAN master of G nung 90's era!

this is the Euroscoot 10th Anniversary watch courtesy of current President Leo Soto.  this may not be as expensive as other watches posted on this thread, but more importantly, it marks 10 years of riding and friendship.  the face of the dial has the same checkered pattern as the original floor tiles at 2211 years ago.  the strap has the tread pattern of a scooter tire as you will see in the pic below.

Matagal ko na gusto itong Orient Mako XL (black) ... had the chance to pick one up...  Ito yung Orient Mako XL ko on an Army Green Panatime Zulu Strap with PVD treatment.

Tama ka Barnz, nagiiba yung dating ng watch kapag naka-Nato/zulu strap ...

Pinapakinggan ko din yung rotor ng seiko, ang pino ng sound hindi katulad sa orient na may konting garalgal.  Pero both Japan movement naman, mas smooth lang yung tunog ng Seiko rotor.

salamat barnz sa lead to gnomon!  nahanap ko rin at nabaliw ako kapipili ng natos!  di ko pa napalitan ang strap ng orange...  hopefully no hassle using that free tool given to me.  i still have to experiment how to shoot a watch using an slr..

the newly opened panerai boutique.  it's so classy, all the sales agents are wearing coat and tie... although, the store is empty with no customers.

malaki kasi ang difference corrine eh, saw a dievas here its selling at around 40k, while the parnis and marina goes for as low as $100 hehe mejo low budget boy tayo eh, just wondering lang on the build i suppose. looks pretty damn nice din kasi eh rather than getting a fake one.

Pinaganda Lang poliboy yung word na HOMAGE pero still a fake watch na kumukha ng top brand watches.

Kaibahan lang dinila copy yung brand name yung buong look Lang ng watch.
but I heard nga na maganda ang homage watches.

Na sayo ang decision chief.

hi paul, do you really like to style and build of the PAM?  they say the homage sometimes have miyota movement but i doubt it.  usually china ang movement.  i just recently took the plunge to this hobby and my first acquisition is a steinhart aviation gmt.  german made with swiss ETA movement with a price cheaper than oris.  very good for a entry watch.  try to check out the prices sa GNOMON watches website.

goodluck on your quest.

Barnz, ok ang Mako sa babae, kaya i-pulloff yan... muntik na ako mapabili the other day, mas maganda itsura ng mako kaysa sa newer version na "ray" ...

i bought a Mako for my dad, a black one at TT Megamall.  They were out of the blue ones kaya I'll get one some other time. I almost bought a Seiko Atlas with the yellow hands but i felt that it was too chunky for my taste, and parang di ko magagamit yung compass nya. My officemate got a Mako XL :)

Sad lang to know that 22mm pala lug width ng Mako eh i plan to use my Natos pa on it.  But all of my straps are 20mm :( I'll just use them on my rolex.

Tnx barnz for the offer, raincheck na lang. Mukhang di ako makakadalo sa birthday ni Philip Cesar kasi same sked ng Xmas party ni mr cu. Baka manalo ko ng raffle ahihihi.

Thank you lex! I will get my own orient soon. Actually I also checked out the orient star gmt but it's not something I'm looking for now.

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: doomzday on January 03, 2012, 10:35:48 AM
posted 250sgd and was able to haggle to 200 so around 6.6k php.  no box, with manual and certs, no longer under warranty plus the seller threw in a bond zulu, extra original bezel and glass and the oem SS bracelet.  the installed bezel has some minor dings and the glass is not 100% clear so i need this to be changed. 

not bad for 6.6k coz the going price in PWC is around 10k for used BFS's.  the singaporean knew about filipinos going nuts on the BFS.  hehehehe

From 2LMX facebook page!

Thank you all for your compliments and messages.
The price of the Reference One by 2lmx - ultimate horology is US$ 1,000,000. The subscription and booking will start on January 2nd, 2012, at US$ 250,000. The balance (US$ 750,000) is due before delivery / pickup of the timepiece.
Reference One by 2lmx is a very complicated instrument to make and therefore we would like to focus on it and complete it from start to end within the next 6 to 8 month.

+1 for Orient on dress watches. maganda mga designs, there's one na me power reserve.  you can check out Fly's thread in the marketplace sa kabila for prices. ganda talaga ng pagka blue ng MakoXL mo.

lex, very nice nato! sharing mine for today, ang labo ng pic from my BB

C, ano yang orient mo?  had to run and had quickie lunch in megamall, then visit TT to say hello to cindy...  pinahawakan nya sa akin ang GMT at open heart orient...  two interesting and very nice time piece!  :P

fly's pricing is sweet.  high probability its orient!  :o

thanks lex, pinakyaw mo na yata lahat ng sieko at orient divers!  and love your photos!   ;)

tried the asprey nato, but got itchie...  decided to take this red ZULU from NATO Nation Manila and so far so good on my seiko divers!

yeah tops, asprey NATOs are so annoyingly itchy.  mura nga pero di mo naman magagamit.  binalik ko sa SS yung orient mako XL ko though medyo out of rotation sya since i got the BFS hahaha.  goodluck on your quest for a dress watch.

lex and corinne... nice watches on NATOs!
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: lex on January 05, 2012, 04:33:29 PM
Salamat sa inyo!  Ang gaganda ng watches nyo on Natos!  Kumuha din ako ng Asprey Nato, so far ok naman sya sa akin... Corinne, tama ka, maganda ang blue dial ng Orient pero yung orange dial nila, hindi masyado maganda... Pag Orange, Seiko at Doxa talaga ang OK!
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: silver2tone on January 05, 2012, 06:02:40 PM
hi tops,
unfortunately wala pa kong Orient - my heart did not leap with their Orient Star GMT, baka yung retrograde pa hihihi. there's Orient CEX, but quite small that has a power reserve meter and I saw a chrono (quartz unfortunately) but looks so handsome with a cream dial.
the watch on that Gnomon G10 red on black 18mm nato is a speedy reduced :)
Ditoy's natos are very nice - daming kulay, if you don's stop yourself you'll end up with so many.

12k plus lang dati sa Seiko nung lumabas even cheaper sa ibang distributors, the "hype" jacked up the price :/

i got mine at a good price - di pa ko nahirapan maghanap sa stores :)
tama si lex - this might have some value better than acqui price in the future - kahit na just to beat inflation.
same story with my Amazon.com release of Citizen eco drive sport - 500 USD na sa ebay hahaha. The spork too has an insane selling price today.

Ang maganda lang sa gulfman yung titanium materials, pero yung fit nya sa akin hindi masyado ok... parang hindi shoot na shoot sa wrist ko... but ang pinaka-worst fit na gshock sa akin ay yung dw9052 .. the rest are ok naman.  What gufman yung nabenta mo Corinne?

G9100 yata iyon lex, in orange. type ko yung functions, color, etc but tama ka - parang di maganda ang lapat sa wrist. i like the fit of my seiko le 233.  kung di nga lang sobrang bigat ng spork, suot ko din sya lagi :D

want to share my FFF on brady sailcloth strap.  since randy showed me a picture of this watch, i told myself i had to have it.  got the watch with the help of charlie (sabroso) who bought the stock seiko 5 for me from a PWC seller.  got the dial from yobokies in HK and the strap from todd of bradystrap USA.  btw, mang andrew of MCS changed the dial at a cheap price of 300 pesos.  finally eto na sya...

lex, hirap maghanap ng vintage seiko. mukang scarce na...dami kasi collector
or even so they sell it abroad kaya lumalabas na mga rare seiko dito sa atin.

a scuba pro 6306 can fetch as high as PHP 50k.

6105, 62mas, tuna 600m etc...punta ka ng MCS. ganda mga seiko vintage in display.
baka yung iba eh for sale.

Friends, I'm selling two watches and I'd like to offer them to you first before posting on the other forum.

1. Blue BFS - watch needs no introduction :) I had the glass replaced and scratches buffed out. Looks new now. Price is 11k. Comes with metal bracelet and box82 leather NATO of your choice from my collection.
2. Black Samurai stainless steel - no metal strap but instead comes leather steinhart strap. Price is 10k.

Watches come with seiko manual and warranty.

Please send me an SMS or PM

Sorry if it - I wanted the people active in this thread to see this first.

Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: randypogi on July 27, 2012, 08:58:26 PM
hehehe...hindi naman ako collector.  ;D

yung iba alam ko nagpapagawa talaga ng mga display furnitures for that.
meron mga watch winders na cabinet type which also serves as a display purpose.
kaya lang super mahal yang mga cabinet na yan.

however, siyempre kung mahal (i.e. rolexie or patektek) ang collection mo mahirap nakadisplay sa sala
at uso pa naman ang "akyat bahay" modus.  just to be safe nakatago then you can bring out in
an attache case in case friends and relatives are interested with your collection. 

hope this helps... ;D

@iceman, seriously seiko is an excellent brand!  nice models with good craftsmanship.
you will encounter seiko priced like a rolexie and even find a vintage seiko divers being sold at PHP 120k.
parang vespa din ang seiko, you can have it mod or customized because maraming aftermarket parts.

pwede mo siyang gawing submariner type.

mas balanse kasi ang dial ng walang date, maganda sa mata... mas hindi busy ang dial at yung pagiging practical o tamad, hindi ka na magcocorrect ng date pag walang 31 yung month... hehe...

Uyy sub no date, I like! Actually yan ang kinuha kong watch last year coinciding with my promotion. Agree, mas balanced and clean looking ang no-date. If you rotate watches, you need not adjust the date prior to wearing. I keep my 14060m on a winder para laging ready to wear :)

yung akin nakatago lang kaya di ko magamit agad agad. nakakatawa dati nung bata pa ako, dumating yung point na kailangan na ipaservice yung watch. akala ko 500 pesos will do. i asked my father where pwede ipaservice. sabi niya sa washinton shangrila. so i went, pinaservice ko... nung hiningi ko yung receipt nagulat ako!!! wow... hehehe!

I got it from Lucerne sa Rustan's Shangrila. I think they are the only ones bringing in Poljot here in the Philippines.
This piece was cheaper than a seiko so ok na din. :)

Can't wait to put so leathers on this piece  ;D

yes!  although comparing to swiss, germans and italian watches...panget ang design nila.  just like the kgb komanderiskie watch above, chrome ang finish (ang kintabb ehehe) and the straps are useless daw.  pero with the price for an automatic watch and the movement is in-house, i am tempted to try it.

Depende po sa relo. Rolex has an authentication service, takes 2 weeks and costs money. I've purchased 2 Omegas, but I only did informal authentication via the ladies in the 6750 service center.

i'm not sure kung may authentication ang TAGs sa pinas but you can arrange the seller to meet up sa Tag Heuer store and ask the advise of sales personnel at the store.  ingatz ka dyan sa F1 bro, madaming peke coz it's a popular watch.

well, with that - pwede mo pa tawaran!! :D
 is that a quartz or automatic? authorized repair centers tend to overcharge and recommend replacement of parts kahit di pa kailangan. based on the look - medyo bugbog, bezel needs to be replaced, and probably the glass too. you can look for a better specimen or even look at brand new pieces!
Title: Re: Watch talk! relo.. relos...
Post by: doomzday on January 25, 2013, 09:49:23 PM
it's a quartz corinne.  halos kamukha ng red dial na F1 CAH1112 which is a gift from my wife.  kung di nya lang regalo, malamang matagal ko nang nabenta.  hehehe.  sa price nya, ang dami nang pwedeng bilhin na automatics. 

i agree with corinne, mike. unless the guy drops the price... better walk away bro.  abang abang ka na lang ng good deal sa PWC.  sa 29k, madami ka nang mabibili na watches.  automatic pa :-) ... or G Shock sympre.  hehehe

No offense sa mga tag heuer owners but I'm not really a fan of the brand. Medyo mabilis maluma ang designs nila, pero may mga magagandang designs naman.  Tapos hindi matibay imho.  I have, (i don't know if it's considered an F1 design already), a quartz chronograph from the early 90's. Siguro around 1992 ko siya nakuha, a few years lang, nasira yung bracelet, then natanggal yung isang pusher. Then pinasok ng moisture, until it died. Anyway, i took a picture of my watch, it may appear large pero maliit yan :) pati size nya naluma.

lex, ganyan na ganyan ang nag-iisang tag heuer ko. blue color bezel and face.
i got it in the early 90s also. it came with a blue diver's strap and a metal bracelet .
siguro mga twice na akong nagpapalit ng vital internal parts over the years.
i estimate that i've had it about 20 years na. it still runs and i use it practically every day.

according to nani, this is the senna F1 model.
super classic na.

hehe ngayon lang ata ako naka-contribute sa thread na 'to ah...

pero gusto kong kumuha ng bagong luma na seiko, yung military-style ang face with big numbers...

Hi pal!
I know what you mean about big numbers - naku hirap na to tell time for me, nag tatanggap na ko ng eyeglasses. Ok yung seiko military but the automatic movement of that is kinda quirky. I bought a citizen Eco drive na military style with big numbers and very nice lume in amazon at 130usd. An Eco drive is a quartz that may never need battery changes.

ya lex, i-revive mo, sayang...

corrine, i also saw an ad for the new seiko kinetic that looks good. nice face & big numbers.
ito yata yung katapat ng eco-drive ng citizen.

i hope the seiko's not too expensive hehehe...

Hi pal,
These kinetics, they need more attention than the Eco drives. My premier kinetic, it has to be worn frequently to charge it up.
