The thread title says "what's your favorite watch?" and he responded. I see nothing wrong with that.
Let's see. He said "overpriced Swiss watches". You can draw your own conclusions.

"most overpriced Swiss watches". I think it's fine..because there are such things as overpriced swiss watches.

I and many of my friends had the Casio Twin Graph AE-20W when we were in junior high school 30 years ago. We purchased at Consumers Distributing for about $50. We loved them. They seem to have become collectors items, used ones sell on eBay for $150.

G-Shock Gulfmaster GA-1000B, I have it for 8 years. Better than most overpriced Swiss watches. I have been fan of Casio quality since childhood when uncle gave me his as gift and since 1994 only owned Casio G Shocks.
8yrs? gulfmaster? i thought they came out these two years or so. lol.

Speaking of the Gulfmaster .... it just so happens that the new Gulfmaster Q1000 v2 has I high failure rate, so buy from a AD. Nothing but bad stuff here http://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/proble ... 082-2.html

I purchased a GWN-1000E v1 last summer from a non AD dealer (watchzon.com). No issues with the watch thank god, but the treatment Casio is giving on non AD purchases is terrible, No AD = No warranty, even when the issue is a know production flaw. makes me seriously doubt an other high end casio purchase, that is before waiting 6 months to see what type of issues watchuseek members are reporting.

I can't lie, that limited edition is grossly overpriced for what it is/whats in it. Myota 8215, mineral crystal, coated stainless case (instead of bronze), 100m WR.

For less money you can have a Squale 20 Atmos or Steinhart OVM with the ETA 2824. You might even be able to get into a bronze watch with a Miyota 9015 for that money.
