...that Aeromatic 1912 ( and Tauchmeister, among a lot of other German brands, like Trias ) are brands made typically for selling on Ebay. They are not true watch companies - they only have a German address/office, and sell through a lot of different websites ( including Ebay ). A give-away on their website is the following: "collections of exclusive chronometers are avaliable." Chronometers...? They are not produced in Germany, nor put together in Germany ( they don't have a "Made in Germany" onthe dial - instead they have "Limited Edition" as far as I can tell. Yes, they do use good movements ( in some cases the China made Miyota, but mostly Chinese made 22 jewels ) and have quite stunning styling/dials - I do like the design! But be aware that these watches are all produced/assembled in mostly China and other far East countries. A lot of "Limited Edition" numbers is, imho, something to look closer into. Why are they making so many "Limited Edition" models? Clearly to appear more sophisticated and "rare". Notice how they often have a huge suggested retail price, sometimes over $800,00? Why are they then sold for $60-120? Please don't misunderstand me, they are probably great value for money ( I bought a Trias, and it was a nice looking watch, but had a cheap Chinese movement. The dial was nice to look at, but on closer inspection was of poor quality with un-even numerals, hard-to-read date dial and 1-24 hour dial ) and will give you a nice looking watch. I just don't want a good friend of mine, like you, to spend money on something that appears to be, and marketed as, very "high-grade" and exclusive, when it in reality is not. I guess what I'm saying Ed is that I don't want you to be disappointed. I will NOT however hold it against you if you get one Like I said, they look very nice and will probably hold up well.
