    Re: The Kirium Club

    Hello,
    My first post... Since I was 18 years old, I've wanted a Tag. They've always been a bit out of my price range. On a whim, my family and I visited a local pawn shop (for the fun of it), and my wife finds a couple Tags in the watch case. She calls me over, and one happens to catch my eye. A Kirium WL1112 "Professional" with a black dial. Now, I'm not as cultured as most on this site are. I have a couple Swiss watches, and a couple decent titanium watches, but not a Tag... But I've shopped them online, and for anything I would put on my wrist, I was looking at spending $1000+. When I tried on this Tag, I was sure it wouldn't fit... but amazingly, it fit perfectly...

    The pawnshop had the price listed at $250, and after some negotiations, I got them down to $200. The Crystal looks perfect, but the band I slightly worn (most importantly it's running and appears to keep the time just fine).

    Questions:
    1- Is this a decent price? What's this watch worth realistically?
    2- Is there anything I should know about my watch? Reputation? Movement issues? Etc...
    3- Is there anyway to get the manual? I got nothing with the watch. No box, no papers. (the pawn shop is reputable, and assured me it's a real Tag).

    I'll try to tapatalk some pics. :) Thanks for any help you can offer me.

    Very nice watch, a good deal I recon. U have a first edition. Box u can sourced form Ebay. As for what its worth I find that Kiriums arent as popular as what they where 2-3years again but that said if u decide to sell it again u will recoup all ur money. Condition shouldnt bother u to much mine look just as worn as urs, after some work it looked like new heres a pic.

    Thanks for the feedback. What did you do to polish your band? I found my watch was very dirty. I took an older Sonicare brush to my watch (with jewelry cleaner solution) rinsed with warm water. Tons of grime came out from various crevices in the band, and then I used a silicon polishing cloth lightly (made for stainless firearms). I wasn't sure how much polishing I should do...

    I use water sand paper, I start with a 400 grid then if I want a brushed look I go to 600, it I want a polished look I go all the way up to a 2000grid, it takes a little longer, just note that it wont look 100% like the factory finish but it close and alot better than being all scuffed up

    Hi All
    Just thought I'd share my favourite watch with you time aficionados. It's my Kirium F1. I absolutely love it, it's my most accurate watch. It actually keeps up with my Skyhawk Atomic watch which is amazing. I'm sure it has a super quartz movement but I really don't care because it has always ticked all the right boxes for me.
