Nov 11th 2010 9:09PM Not even going to bother responding to the comment about my name - that is irrelevant in nature. I don't assume that people in Kentucky live in an particular high or low state, but rather that they have a short term history of having a government that gives special incentives to companies to open up manufacturing plants there. They are not alone in this.

Thanks for the comment. It has been very unclear what ETA will or will not continue to offer into the future. I do understand the difference between the movement kits and the completed movements. Getting movements in the watch industry is a pain - this I know. So are finding decent watch makers out there to fix watches like you. While this article might not be able to predict exactly what ETA will do in the next year, it's role is to put people on alert that something big is going to happen and it will alter their business models. Thanks for your contribution. Take care.
Nov 22nd 2009 6:34PM I agree with you that it look bigger, but these are stats straight from Charriol's site. So who knows?

I appreciate your (hopefully) well intended response. It is true that from a marketing perspective Herman Miller does tout the Setu as chair for group uses such as in a conference room - but that is so not to impede upon its more dedicate desk chairs. My personal discussions with Herman Miller revealed that the Setu is not only suitable for desk or task use, but a good fit for that role when people enjoy the comfort of the chair. You don't need to be an industry expert to grasp these concepts. If you are more concerned with the marketing and sales perspective of the chair industry, then this is the wrong article to look at anyway. Thanks again and take care.
Oct 27th 2009 11:55AM Hey that is a good point. Cadillac feels they are owed something for being a sponsor, and Luxist, like anyone else, needs sponsorship to keep doing what we are doing for you. Seiko watches are Japanese, so are Lexus cars - so I think my point is clear, and would be lost if I used Cadillac instead. Plus, I am not saying anything bad about them, which sponsors tends to be sensitive to. Thanks for the comment.

Yea, I know what you mean about use of the kimono, but the Black Belt site said they modeled it after kimono fabric... so I was just following their lead!

The black and white tones do share similarity with the A. Lange & Sohne Datograph, but there are too many little points that are dissimilar. Such as the 12 o'clock indicator that is actually a twelve and not an "outside date" display. Plus, the which subdials have white areas that are physically together, not apart as in the Datograph. I had a slightly larger image to look at and am pretty sure that wasn't the watch. Thanks for checking it out though.

Come on, the watch has its charms right? You gotta like it just for the cool looking machinery on your wrist. Maybe not a runway model, but it has intrinsic mechanical watch appeal. Still, your opinion is always appreciated.

Who said I wasn't interested in the sport? I think it is fun to watch. True me know the deep satisfaction of a log well chopped. And if you can't laugh at competitive wood chopping what can you laugh at? Take care!
