    Watch magazines

    Anyone subscribe? I get SalonQP mag - it's excellent. I often jump straight to the auction section and drool over all of the "just within my price range but not really" vintage pieces - some real bargains to be had. I learn so much more from reading them than I do online - I think it's the how the medium is presented. This month all about zenith's incredible fussed and chain system, and the history of Sinn.

    Watch magazines

    A few Dutch Magazines, the German Armband Uhren and WatchTime on the iPhone/iPad.
    Also SalonQP somehow the december issue is not available yet.

    Best to me is Armband Uhren.

    I have the November issue. It's quarterly, isn't it?

    Edit: every 2 months apparently

    I have no idea! I don't pay for it - I'm not sure who does actually. Google says 40 quid for 6 issues. https://www.alliance-media.org.uk/QP...promotion=QP14

    Whilst I very much embrace technology (I'm glued to my phone) I still enjoy an analogue magazine.

    I couldn't agree with you more -- the experience of browsing through an actual magazine is very enjoyable. As a practical matter, though, I know myself too well -- and those single issues suddenly become stacks and stacks that I am always unwilling to part with. So, for the sake of domestic tranquility, it's the iPad version for me.

    Yeah - I end up throwing mine away eventually - I'm an anti-hoarder. If you're saving cash with the e copy then that's good as well.

    I subscribe to QP. Visiting Germany recently, I was struck by the magazines available. Wish we had that selection in the UK.
