Ethical dilemmas are the least of my concerns when buying a watch. If I like it I wear it.
Yes, Ford was lucky that they had ready developed European sized cars to import to US/ Canada. The Ford Focus came into being In 1998, and was the new model after the Ford Escort ( born in the late 60's)
The other US companies had to start developing from scratch, or rebadge Korean (?) cars
I wear a Stowa Antea and love the company, but I confess to a little discomfort with the flieger models. Not enough to make me think I or anyone else should avoid them--on the contrary, I would like Stowa to prosper. But still...
That said, someone not too long ago in the sales forum was trying unsuccessfully to sell a watch that celebrated a Wehrmacht armored corps. I thought that crossed the line.
Current Rotation: Seiko SARB035, Seiko SKX013, Baume et Mercier Classima
Box Sitters (waiting for repair): 1970 Seiko World Time; 1952 Omega Constellation; 1972 Zodiac Astrographic (Yeah, baby!); Stowa Antea KS (WTF Stowa? Broken after three years?); gold 1950s Hamilton of unknown model; Casio G-shock, the solar/radio model--fantastic watch, just little place in my rotation since acquiring a Seiko dive watch; a boring Tissot quartz PR50 I bought before I knew better)
"Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail." _ John Donne
I am not if it is considered to be Ethics, but I would never buy a watch if it affected my family's lifestyle.
Like buying a Grand Complication PP, and putting ot on my C/c. The interest and repayment would make be a bad Provider!
