  1. Archive: Reference Articles, FAQ, & Model Guides
    Hi, Just wondered if anyone can offer any advice/guidance on the following. The pushers are sticking, which seems fairly common, usually down to the hardened rubber seals. I took it to the local watch repair guy, who initially informed me that the seals were rock hard and needed replacing. I...
  2. Russian watches
    Hello there, here is my thing with my vintage Raketa Big Zero. I got the watch a couple weeks ago from my friend. The watch kept time pretty good, until recently. I play drums occasionally and I had Raketa with me, while I played (I just realized everything right after). What happened, I...
  3. Seiko
    Once again I find myself shopping for a Seiko diver and am drawn to the 009 and or 175 for looks and price. I know the 175 is for the US market and the 009 the world and other than some Malaysia markings on the 175 for US customs compliance they are the same......or are they. Is it possible the...

    I thought I would write a quick review about the Watch Tuner app available for iOS devices. For a while now I have been doing my Russian mechanical watch regulations the old-fashioned way- adjust, wait one hour and check the time, adjust and wait another hour, adjust and wait 24 hours...
  5. Watchmaking
    Hi everyone, maybe you can help me. I have a Sinn U1 purchased in early 2015. This was one of the first U1s with a Sellita movement. I am unsure whether this is an issue or something to be expected from this movement. What happens is as follows:- After you unscrew the crown and leave...

    i have had my vosotok amphibia for one year. it was fairly accurate when i purchased it, yet most days the past few months i wear my damasko da-36 black. so i was a bit dismayed to find my vostok losing 26 seconds a day. then i did some snooping and found this post by pacifichrono...
  7. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I've been trying to get a pocket watch regulated (using my own nifty Android app <cough, cough> self-promotion: WildSpectra Mobile, available on Google Play), and I'm having a very hard time with positional variation. It's a relatively economical little Arnex watch with an unadjusted (and...
  8. Seiko
    I plan on purchasing a Seiko Monster off Amazon and a watch adjustment tool on there as well. I know the most popular are the SE link removal tools which are very inexpensive, but are there others (again, preferably on Amazon) that are possibly more effective for Seiko's pin and collar system...
  9. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I own a Lord Elgin Automatic - caliber 760 with 30 jewels. The watch keeps excellent time. On the movement is written 6 adjustments. I wonder if Elgin used some accuracy standard similar with COSC to adjust the 6 positions. Does anyone knows what were the standards they used?
  10. Affordable watches
    First time I've posted a thread, so be gentle. I've seen some recommendations on adjusting bracelets (specifically dive bracelets with the diver's extension) in the past, but I thought I'd provide a little knowledge and hopefully help someone out on the site. I own several Seiko divers...
  11. Omega
    I just got a new Speedmaster "40 Anniversary Moon Landing" watch and need to take some links out of the bracelet. I researched the forum, but didn't find the answers I was looking for. I have successfuly used a pin-pusher tool to adjust bracelets on other, non-Omega watches. This bracelet...
  12. TAG Heuer
    Hey all, I just bought a used WAB2010.BA0804 that was 'serviced' before being sent to me, but it's consistently running 1.5 minutes fast per 24 hours. I read that a watch only needs to be regulated if the watch is fast/slow by different amounts each day and that it needs to be adjusted if...
