In Dire Need of TLC, Before and After Chronograph Movement [WatchRap]

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Off-topic Question! Does anyone here know of a German watchmaker named Thiesal or Thiesen or Tiesal or something like that? I was trying to help someone at a party, determine whether the eBay watch they had purchased (all steel, 42 mm, crystal back, $200) was an authentic German watch or a copy.

    What is the best way to determine whether a given watch is a phony or not? (I feel this is an important question for the host to answer, in general terms, too)

  2. Hi, and thanks

    I was hoping you would recognize by brand name alone. It was a watch I only saw for a few minutes on the wrist of a tall, leggy blonde I was macking at a party recently.

    If I see her again I will ask her for more info. All I know is that the brand was “Tiesen” or “Tiesan” or “Tiesal” or some set of phonyms like that.

    Really appreciate your help. Having some watch knowledge helped me nearly land this babe and I am not out-of-the-running yet.
