Don't think you'll be a target if you wear a Timex or Bolex.
Or a JLC or Glashutte Original for that matter. Very few brands have the recognition that Rolex. One of the reasons I don't own one. That and the fact tham I'm poor :(

I have several of them and nobody notices them. I think that it is super overrated to think people will notice if you have one.

can quartz watch last 50 years if I only change the batteries and take care of it? When does the movement just stop?

I love Steinhart. Pick up from Gnomomwatches and you can get it in 2 days. With 2.5 years of warranty!
Which Steinhart model did you buy? Did you buy online and ship to Canada or pick up in US?

I am wondering is there any physical store in GTA sell their dive watch

Thanks

Yep only fellow WIS or AD's notice. I use to work in a very public setting and no one noticed, nor did the execs. As I've said before, if you show up to work with a shiny gold Michael Kors that will get attention 100%. No one buys a Rolex to get attention.

Just had it shipped. I picked up their exclusive 39mm ovm. Came in two days from Singapore to Toronto. They also put lower value for duties, only paid $36 bucks that includes 20 or so dhl fees

They have many models in stock. Steinhart is top notch in build and finish. Beats other Swiss watches 2-3x the price

I can attest for this. Never got attention for my sub, which I sold and put the money back in kids resp. Now I just enjoy a steinhart, certina, Citizen, tag and few other micro brands

Gem Bijou in Simcoe Place next to CBC building. Great folks to talk to about watches.
Nice! Sam's a great guy. Bought a bunch of watches from him when he was at TD. Now the store is too far away!
