I received for my birthday a really wonderful present from mum and dad. They gave me a Pionier Dublin watch. I have certain tastes for watches but my taste for the grandiose skeleton pieces has not yet been acquired. It is a really pretty watch but the price tag is very shocking (~$500) and the movement wasn't finished. I don't know what the movement is but the fact that it is held by plastic within the case angers me - the dial says that it is made in germany seems to indicate just that, that the DIAL and only the dial is made in Germany. For $500, one can get a really good Tissot/Invicta auto chrono/Stowa? or highly finished Seiko. Does anyone have a clue what the movement is? And can we create a more informed audience - the fact that Pionier can get away with it is eviscerating. They even claimed to hand make the piece.
