    I think I'm going to cry. Pionier Dublin Watch

    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.

    You know they're going to expect you to wear it all the time, right?

    Unless your parents truly wouldn't mind you returning it and getting something you want, you're just going to have to live with it.

    To the best of my knowledge, and by no means am I a WUS forum elder, I am not aware of the terms "Made in Germany" or 'Hand Made' carrying any special attributes as to quality when it comes to watches. Certain criteria must be met to have "Glashutte" displayed on the watch, and that is the only seal/mark that I am aware of watch-wise that stems from Germany.

    I also didn't know that a guest can post.

    That's probably why we get so much spam.

    Well, hell, I think it's a nice watch. A bit glittery & not something I would seek out myself, but a nice watch all the same.
