If you read the history, epos is entitled as an Artistry In Watchmaking... which is not their claims... but it is given to them.

But they are underrated... many people don't recognize the brand & some watch seller also not familiar with the brand. They made an amazing job decorated the movement. For movement concern... no problem with that.  There are using ETA. Hand decorated & I can say the finishing is mostly par with the other Swiss brand more than 10k.

It just a question whether you like it or not. If you like it, just buy it. For me? Yes. It is a good watch. :thumbsup:

For me, i think epos watches are good too.
I agree that the finishing is better than alot of other watchmakers and their price point is really tempting.
If you see the watch that your friend selling suits you, and the price is right.
I would say go for it...  :Cheers:

I already saw the 3369. I would say it is a very nice watch indeed. I love the way the presented the movement  :-*. They know how to show their movement very well.  :thumbsup: The see through caseback is very large for us to see &  appreciate the beautiful movement. The 3369 is using Unitas 6498. Other model are using Unitas 6497 same as PAM is using.

when buying a watch, never expect it to appreciate in value at all. Buy it because you love it.

HI Ballaviator.

Epos watch is crap!!!! Expensive and not popular. Those uncle and aunty at pasar malam will think you wear some toy watch. DEsign wise, I can't stand their design. Ugly.....

So, dont buy it.

Psss.... what is your friend contact please.  :laugh: I like to give him a call. Tell him cash ready.  :D

i own 3 epos myself,an epos ref 3369, ref 3390 and ref 3397.all are great bang for the buck and their movements are well decorated for the pricepoint..so if you like it,by all means buy it..because its you $$$ not anybody else..and you only live once..dont regret not buying it!!

Hi, congratz on ur new acquisition. Saw some Epos (and fondled them of course) and i m impressed with the finishing for the price. Comparable even  to Tag which are costlier.

Regarding the ticking noise, i would like to share my experience with my Maurice Lacroix MP7048 (the skeleton dial with hand-engraved silver deco). When i first wore it, it makes so much ticks that i can even hear it when i were driving. Missus kept complaining of the ticks. I hav to keep it in the box to sleep in peace. Brought to the AD, they said its due to the natural design of the exposed movements (modified ETA, i think), ticks can't be avoided. So gotta live with it. Hope urs can be corrected coz its really annoying for an expensive watch.
