Qui audet adipiscitur
I read the article. He didn't endorse the whole line. Just the Arc watches - and only from the standpoint that they are good value for an automatic movement watch. That's the way I took the article.
When I saw the article originally I skipped past it to look at something else. Now I want to pop some popcorn and watch the shade rain!
I like the design and I think they are good looking watches. While they don't appeal to me beyond their looks (given the other options), I'd buy one for someone to whom they appeal.
I do not have a watch collection - I have an accumulation of watches
I never paid MVMT any attention before. Taking a quick look just now I have to ask...
Don’t the watches seem a bit overpriced for what they are?
Writing an article is an endorsement now? He talks about how it is a good gateway for people to get into the hobby and even says who he believes the target audience is.

The cringe level on this thread with the whole "Hodinkee have been paid off by MVMT" narrative is pretty disappointing for a watch enthusiast forum. So a popular brand amongst the mass population has finally introduced a mechanical that might get its customers into other mechanical watches, and they actually look pretty good in appearance, for what they are. I wouldn't discourage a non-watch enthusiast from it if they really liked the design.
Yeah, reading the article, the tone is positive but a little patronizing. That’s not uncommon for them when they move under their usual price bracket.
When I first saw these watches, I thought they looked surprisingly OK for l being MVMT - although a little bland. I would not get them, there are so many more interesting watches for that money. Any review like that (sponsored or not) should not be the only basis for an informed purchase, just an additional data point.

So, does this mean Hodinkee will change their name to "HDNKE"???
