Mind the gap! Seriously, if you are reviewing a $20K watch can you please make sure the strap is attached correctly? Obviously a bent spring bar as seen in the video.... can you just put in a new one before filming? Surely he must see this, he's not a watch newb!

He will learn the hard way when it falls off and the ceramic case breaks after hitting something hard.

Roy I can see you grabbing this one. 45mm is a tad small for me but I would love to have this one......I'd also love to have the cash that this one costs lol

Beautiful piece. I like the idea of a scratch proof watch.

Very nice watch. Thanks Mike for the vid and more so for the pictures. Hard to tell on the video the blue color.

Hmmm...if I was reviewing and trying to sell a $20,000 watch I sure would make sure it's right. That strap issue is terrible and he even talks about how the strap is integrated into the case, but only on one side I guess...:lol:

Otherwise a beautiful piece, love me some tourbillons.

In my profession I've had some bad days and I'm far from perfect. The difference is when I had mine it wasn't filmed so are these people so perfect in their own professions could throw stones. I'm sure TM could have easily re-shot the video, but that would be no fun for the comments section.

Not trying to throw stones..and far from perfect, but dang, that's kinda bad for a vid showcasing the quality of a watch of that caliber...just sayin' :cheers:

I think what matters are the people who pay for the videos and sign the paychecks. I doubt anyone here is going to be coming to Philadelphia to buy this timepiece, especially from Tim. The sunglasses upside down on top of the head is reason enough to not patronize the dork.

I don't know what's going on with this guy... For me, if you are trying to review/sell a watch you might want to see that the strap is affixed properly and to wipe the watch down. Seeing all that dust is just annoying. You are trying to sell a $20K timepiece for god's sake... Give the watch some respect as Aretha would say!
