Lol. Still spouting stuff without checking are we?1.2 billion watches were sold in 2013. Swatch's revenue was $8.8B. Rolex's was $4.5B.That's a lot of watches sold for "not many people" to wear.http://www.statisticbrain.com/wrist-watch-industry-statistics/US sales were $7.2B in 2012 and up since the 2009 low.http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-watchs-time-isnt-up-2013-07-01The GPS sports watch category was estimated to grow to $1B in 2013.The global watch market was...
No, it's not about principle since they did not invade your privacy. At worst it's junk mail or an unsolicited gift that ended up in your mailbox.Perhaps you should look up what privacy means in a dictionary.
Because they are facts. It is a fact that the industry says that 5mm watches are thin and not average. It is a fact that most watches are thicker than 5mm. It is a fact that many watches called "thin" by the watch industry is thicker than 5mm.These are all fact easily confirmed by googling or simply following the links i provided.This is false. it is not "much" thicker given that it is within the average range for watches.This is false. The smaller watch is on the lower...
Given that it was a one off gift your scenario has little to do with reality. The only one that needs to engage more brain cells before posting is you.And giving everyone a free album has zero to do with privacy. If they gave you an album from your favorite band then THAT would be an invasion of privacy because somehow they know what bands you like without asking you.
And yet every watch maker and every watch site ends up providing the same guidelines (+/- 1mm) on watch thickness despite your claim these categories don't exist.It is the industry's opinion that 5mm is thin and not mine.It's like you arguing there is no industry categories for laptops and 17mm is an average laptop because you own a MBA and that 24mm (the unibody MBP) is thick while 40mm desktop replacement/uber gamer laptops are just silly.Stating that 17mm is average for...
Lol.A) industry watch thickness categories are not opinions to agree or disagree with. They just are. "5mm is thin" is simply true. "5mm is average" is simply false.B) your opinion that the apple watch is too thick is of little merit when you don't know what is considered thick or thin.
No he is not. The VERY thinnest watches are 3mm. They cost more than many cars. Very thin watches are 5mm.I've owned watches for 40 years. So what?Here are links that say the same thing he does:http://www.watchstation.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?storeId=34054&page=customerCare_sizeCharts&nav=leftNav_CustomerCare&catalogId=23503&langId=-1http://www.amazon.co.uk/b?ie=UTF8&node=345146031http://www.fossil.com/wcsstore/Fossil/html/en_US/sizeguide/watches.htmlFind...
In case there is any doubt - the worlds thinnest watches:   Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon - 4.8 mm   Vacheron Constantin Calibre 1731 - 3.9 mm   Piaget Altiplano 900P - 3.65 mm   Arnold & Son Ultra Thin Tourbillon Escapement - 2.97 mm   http://www.watchtime.com/blog/5-record-setting-ultra-thin-watches/   5mm is an ultra-thin.
 5mm is an ultra thin.  You have been consistently wrong on this point.  The very thinnest watches (which are also in the 5 figure range) are in the 3mm-4mm range. The Piaget Altiplano is 4mm in diameter and 3mm thick and is the thinnest watch in the world with mechanical movement and lists for $33,000.  The Jules Audemar Extra Thin is 6mm thick. What he quotes is correct.
 The large majority of $350 watches are quartz watches with batteries.  Even the eco-drive ones.  It is not that likely in several decades you'll find that kind of replacement battery anymore.  Automatics and manual will last several decades...if replacement parts are available and you regularly service it. 25-30 years is the rule of thumb for quartz watches with jeweled movements with some notable exceptions like the Grand Seiko who's first service is recommended at 50...
