Response to Your thoughts on Kobold.......
I bought one of Mike Kobold's first (Professional A) for a very reasonable $1200 total. He used to exclaim how you could buy his very nice watches for much, much less than other fine swiss timepieces.
Mike has changed his philosophy. He has opened up his business to ADs, and his watches now go for $4-6000 (with exception of the Seal). They are nice watches, but I don't know if I would pay those prices anymore when you can find comparable ones for less.
I believe there were a lot of us early supporters who felt betrayed by this. Having said that, I do believe the Seal is his best and most reasonably priced watch. The one I would purchase.
