I have seen plenty, good attitude but still, bragging about things is kinda annoying. His choice in clothing and watches is questionable, his blue Rolls is sick though.

Yes, his attitude is alright. He turns spending $$$ into something very casual, like it's insignnificant pocket money to him :ksc75smile:

Entertaining for sure.

Though, I came across TickTocking on YT and he does some really nice hands on reviews on expensive watches like DeBethune, Gruebel Forsey, MB&F, Urwerk, as well as Patek, Lange, FP Journe. It's worth checking out some of his vids just for the eye candy alone.

I also find Talking Watches / Hodinkee on YT most entertaining as it's famous people that are also watch aficionados talk about their watch collections.

There's also The Urban Gentry. He's cool.

Just be careful with what you take in from these youtubers.

Its funny the ones who are openly associated with resellers or brands I find to be the most honest and balanced in their opinions.

These "independent" ones.. I often have issues with.

My new Breitling has ended up needing some work. It looked good to the naked eye, but once I brought the loupe out and checked it at angles, it needed some TLC. The AR coating on the crystal had a lot of scratches that only showed up under magnification. Luckily being in the detailing industry I have everything I need to get it back to looking awesome. I have spent about an hour polishing by hand only, the watch is about 99% perfect now, but the AR coating is most likely gone.

Watchfinder & Co is excellent filled with good information and insight. It's the only watch YouTube I enjoy, though, they have done some odd things - the whole "how to" series was either a sad attempt at making something for the sole sake of getting clicks or a really long look down their noses at their customers and audience.

Keep in mind that the least expensive Watchfinder has ever reviewed is an Omega Seamaster (or there about): their audience know how to 'wind a watch' or 'set the time'. Those video just look silly and have very low views.

That's a fair point, but we appreciate the effort. Even if a handful of people take something out of such content , that's a win. There are far worse ways to gain viewers.

I like watchfinder a lot but they sometimes focus too much on main stream watch like Rolex I wish they do more patek vc lange or May be fp or mb&f, they have many video on grand Seiko but not Credor where Credor are similar price to GS but the true flagship line from Seiko.

Absolutely. But iFi audio justified above that making vidoes for the sake of mass clicks was okay, they do what they do. They have done some excellent Patek vs Lange videos (their chronos) and have done more Journe than care for already. I agree with Credor, however Seiko has really kept a very tight leash on that brand: so few watches with even lower productions numbers. I've tried to get both versions of Eichi to no avail simply because I'm not a Japanese resident. Basically, I would imagine many of their other offerings are meant to stay on the island so even Watchfinder may not have access.

MB&F, again, very rare birds with total annual production under 300, but certainly a possible brand. It is nice to see Ferrier in a few of their videos but more indies would be very welcome for sure.

A few.
Tach, numerals, pushers, date hand, etc...
But, I'd gladly wear either one. Stunning. Congrats.
