So far the only ones I have seen turned out to be jobber or marriage watches. I haven’t seen a factory cased one yet.

Re: An asymmetric Thin-Thin

I like it. I have one or two. I get comments when I wear it. It definitely gets attention.

Re: Buy a Seiko or invest in a Hamilton?

I have a few seiko watches. I do like them. I am mostly an American watch collector. It might be easier for us to make suggestions if you have an idea of what things are important to you. Case material- Stainless, solid gold, gold filled, etc. Movement- Manual, Automatic, chronograph.... Size Shape ...
