I wrote before the review in subject is helpful somehow but I didn't mean to be flattering when I wrote MF could do something similar but much better.This review seems to consider parameters I personally don't care, it seems to be worried about the outfit that best fits with the watch. Pictures help a lot but the analysis remains superficial, there's lack of depth (thinking movement, finishing and everything really matters).
You come from nothing, you go back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!

Reading the review, however, gave me the impression that the points that really matter to me - as a devoted fan - were covered perfectly and balanced.
dmath Wrote:Great thread about a great watch. In my opinion, the Chrono classic is a grand slam. Is it overpricd? That's a very tricky question. In some sense, any watch that can't be purchased at the corner drugstore is overpriced because that watch will keep time as well as an IWC or any other luxury watch. We all know very well that timekeeping is only part of what gives these watches value. We buy them, I think, because of what they say to us and for the pleasure that wearing them gives us. We buy them with our hearts, not our heads so trying to apply logic to pricing schemes is rather pointless. A watch doesn't have a single value -- that is something determined individually by each of us. To me, the Chrono Classic is absolutely not overpriced, it is worth every penny of its substantial price tag. Others will feel differently. Note that I wrote "feel" rather than "think" because make no mistake, thinking isn't really involved. Just my humble opinion.
