Hello everyone. Just wanted to take the time to introduce myself and ask a couple of questions from the members here.
I just came across this website in my search for gathering as much info about Kobold as i possibly can. Most other forums have disorganized and very undeveloped Kobold sections and the level of this forum here impressed me.
About me. I love watches-point blank. Iv owned more watches than i care to admit and have had everything from lower end Seiko to most of the higher end. My current favorites are Panerai, Breitling, and AP Royal oak offshores(the only AP line i would consider).
Anyway the reason im here is because I'm interested in the kobold soarway diver seal in matte black dial. This watch looks awesome. And here is where the questions come in.Evey collector i know and all the jewelers i deal with are all unaware or have no interest in the brand. In fact from most of the people i interact with, if i get the watch than i will be the first to try kobold out. And here are the questions.
1. Compared to other high end watches, how does kobold compare (in feel, wear, and craftsmanship).
2. Are people that own the brand happy with the watch and will they buy another in the future.
Im generally curious and would love it if someone enlightened me. Now remember i never seen one for real nor have i ever tried one on so im completely ignorant. I did some research and chatted with personnel from Kobold and was about to make a purchase but decided to do more research and see what i come up with.
Any help will be appreciated.
