Askmen's Watch Snob has said repeatedly that in his opinion, there isn't a watch that costs between $1k and $4k-$5k worth owning. Granted, that's an extreme view, but I wonder if that means that he would endorse a LUM-TEC automatic. LTs are made in limited series, mostly cost less than $1k, have high components, can be customized at the factory to one's specifications, and don't pretend to be something they're not. The company itself is a small, independent firm with a reputation for outstanding customer service. I read the column regularly and I haven't seen him answer a LT question. Has anyone here e-mailed him about LT yet?
