I just got my laco type A miyota from monster time recently as well.
Is it $420? I hope the price i see is the final, no more hidden cost added. Mind sharing pic and some on hand simple review? I never own a laco before. Only archimede.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think those brand must be not from Swiss (Germany) as I have not see them selling in the common boutique in Singapore.

I do a random search on Amazon has happen to saw this watch below:

Amazon.com: Hamilton Men's H32656785 Jazzmaster Chronograph Watch: Hamilton: Watches

Any comment?
those brands are indeed swiss or German. Guinand made Sinn watches and if owned by the founder or Sinn watch, well Wolfgang Steinkrüger go read. Tons of brands out there that don't sell in common boutique in SG. obviously u didn't read the link.

well, hamilton is hamilton. they make good watches but U get a undecorated 7750.


This watch look nice. How does Steinhart fair with Fortis?

Nav B-Chrono II with leather strap - Chronographs - Steinhart Watches

Also, how can I purchase Steinhart watch? Just direct online from about link? Anyone has experience on purchasing that from online?

opps! I realized that this watch has no water resistance, can't wear during shower. I wonder why it is so difficult to include water resistant? Even my $30 casio has water resistance.
Steinhart vs Fortis. different price pt, what do u think?
Steinhart U can go thru gnomon or buy online. search there are a few that bought them online here.

all watches has some water resistance. even those spec at 30m they tell u don't shower. know that 100m does not mean can go 100 meters waters with current and movement.

The retail price is 420 but I got a little discount off the price because me and my friend got it together. Review wise, I don't think I can provide any as this is my first watch and I don't really know about the watch. Unless you have any direct questions, then I will try my best to answer!

Watch Water Resistance Information
May I know if we buy online like Gnomon, how are we going to deal with the warranty when the watch is faulty? Sending the watch back to Gnomon for repair?

That is my major concerns when purchasing online. If we purchase watch locally, when faulty, we can at least go back the the dealer or service centre here for their support.
