This pseudo brand of watches, and I say this because although they try to sell as being a brand with good designs and packaging, no more than just that good front as is basically another Chinese brand of affordable watches (as I like to call me ) cheap or as others would say but this time with a little more careful image but do not be fooled by her lest pagéis more than they are worth, let’s look a little more closely at its features:
MAKE AND MODEL: Infantry Handwinding

The topic to be discussed today is a bit complex and not all watch fans feel the same. Many watches resemble each other and drink design many brands that make other, today we will address these differences at least from my point of view but you know that you can leave your comments footnotes.
This week I will do the review of the Hamilton Khaki King, watches of this brand are highly regarded by watch enthusiasts as it is a brand with a large catalog and a very good quality offering their products at prices not too high to be Swiss Made. This model has a look pilot that I love, since I notice him I was behind him until I could get my hands on him, besides the look has the distinguishing feature of the date and day at 12. This watch is made quite famous thanks to the actor Hugh Laurie (Dr. House) used to take, at the end of the review I put you some photos. Let’s review its features before continuing:
MAKE AND MODEL: Hamilton Khaki King

I will discuss trick there is to lengthen the life of a mechanical watch, either string or automatic. Everything is for your mechanical watches have a longer and less visits to the watchmaker life. Not a Decalogue because it has 15 tips, but it is always good that know and if you have a moment to dedicate it to read it.
– Never move the needle back to put the clock may damage the mechanism date.
Today I present a newcomer, the truth is that it is a watch that was in the spotlight and that for some reason or another was delaying its purchase, it is a Heinrichssohn that pays tribute to Deep See.

When watches start to accumulate, have no one to buy a watchmaker, and when full it planteas you buy another and how they are not cheap … I tell you what I did. Having completed my first watchmaker with 10 units, I raised buy another but seeing the big stores we all have in our city, and which I will not say the name to not make them more publicity, it became clear that the price paid was not down in any case of 20 euros, then I saw this idea in a forum watches.
Today I leave another Parnis watch, in this case of manual loading, which I love, that romanticism to wind it every day is something that fascinates me. As I commented in the last post to acquire those you can find in sites like Manbushijie, Dajiwatch, etc. once again you can find in the post Recommended sites affordable shopping. This model is sold with sterile dial like the one we come to present, either labeled or Garton Parnis that often brands that tend to market these watches. They are watches with a clear military inspiration, are so- called pilot watch or fliegers , and is because the pilots of the former fighters of war had such watches with rather large numbers and this type of arrangement on the dial. These are the features:
MAKE AND MODEL: Parnis 44mm Pilot
