    What you just said doesn't make you a snob. It means you like "swiss" watches. You are a snob if you look down on someone who likes something different.

    Hang my self when I get enough rope. (It's a Tubes lyric, from the mid 70's; song's called "White Punks on Dope". Enough said?)

    Do you have a reason why? Are the Germans and Japanese not meeting some criteria?

    How about the truly excusive high end watchmakers? Roger Smith from England for example

    I was for about 25 years - Rolex, Breitling, Longines, Omega, Tag, Zenith then I met Japanese Seiko higher end and quality Citizens & Casio MasterG's & rarely looked back - different aesthetic, different philosophy, hard to pin down, but really enjoying Japanese. Now I only own 2 Swiss: a Breitling & a Tudor.

    Not me. I put the "hor" in horology. I like 'em all! Swiss, German, American (vintage), Japanese, Russian, Chinese. If they make 'em, I'll try them.

    There was a great video interview with Roger Smith and he showed off his own Rolex Explorer that his wife bought him and he treasured, and he commented that one of his watchmaker team collects lots of GShock.
