2. Revolution: This is the high-end of watch magazines. Not a technical journal, but not a fashion magazine, Revolution touts itself as a "watch lifestyle" magazine. Probably the best watch magazine in terms of editorial content and articles, this highly polished testament to watch love is a collector's piece in itself. The gem here is the attention to detail when discussing watches or watch personalities. Revolution understands that there is so much more to a watch than meets the eye, and each issue has lots dedicated to defining and discussing questions that most watch enthusiasts have, and cannot get answers to. Further, there are industry news mentions, and editorial articles focused on the more political or intellectual side of watch manufacturing and collecting. Revolution magazine is highly recommended.
For the uninitiated, eBay allows users to score each other with feedback ratings. You either had a good or bad transaction with someone, and more recently you can give people sub-ratings based on more specific factors. In addition to your "positive" or "negative" feedback, you have a little of room to discuss or explain a situation. This is where you will do your more harm, or cause the most damage. Feedback is more or less permanent, and is very difficult to alter or remove. Giving feedback should be done with care, and after you have had a full opportunity to examine a situation and deal with it.

The Japanese market gets so much we don't. Good thing that there are still channels for the US to get most of the goods, even if the instructions aren't in English. The Citizen Chronomaster is a watch that would never be marketed in the US because the consumer interest would not match the costs of distribution. The Citizen Chronomaster is a type of watch that only the wearer will be able to appreciate because its value is all hidden. Seeing the Chronomaster doesn't evoke much. It is a classic and attractive watch with no frills. You would feel perfectly comfortable wearing it to a meeting, to a wedding, or on vacation. No one is going to ask you questions about where you got it. No, this is not a showy timepiece. Instead, the Chronomaster is about being a watch that is supremely easy to live with, and that is the whole point.

The consumer bought the Botta Helios, and Rufus Lin Designs has another happy customer. The lesson to be learned here for the typical watch consumer is to ask for this type of treatment.
