  2. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Firstly, I'd like to mention that I hand polished / brushed the case to lightly refinish it, as it was in bad condition since I won it for very cheap on an auction. I didn't try to refinish it to looking new. I just wanted to give it a little bit of shine. I know polishing can be a touchy...

    A little background: I have no dive watches (yeah I know). A couple years ago I decided to slim and really think about what I wanted to keep and add a few along the way. Currently, I've saved by tutoring and waiting for my AD to give me that call on the 58, although I know that there are many...

    Hi, I saw a Cartier Extra Flat the other day. I was struck by how the dial looked to be really pressed up against the crystal. It looked stunningly good. I saw the same effect on an FP Journe watch on Instagram. As a result, the watch looks like it is full of watch, as it were. I am wondering...
  5. Russian watches
    Hi all, I'm new to the watch world and budget is limited but I find the Vostok watches really intriguing, especially because of the history. Because of this I think I am more drawn to vintage than the new models. However, as mentioned, being new to watches I am aware of the potential pitfalls of...

    Hi everyone, so my little sister got this watch from our dad yesterday and the secondhand isn’t working I think. When I turn the crown it will change the minutes and hours ofcourse, but when I click the watch isn’t doing a thing. I’ve been searching all day long and I hope someone know something...

    Hi all, Before anyone points it out I'm aware of the pitfalls of Watchgang and how they tend to run their business. I was signed up for a Black subscription for 3 watches. The watches I got are fine. Not exquisite pieces or anything but as per normal WG they look nice but might not have the...

    Hello, recently I purchased one of these as an everyday beater. When browsing the forums on here, specifically for this watch, I saw posts for a sapphire upgrade and a hand upgrade which I would do on this one. Now that I know it’s possible, I was wondering if anyone knew the dimensions for the...

    Hi everyone! I'm looking to purchase a Grand Seiko in the near future and have been struggling to make a choice based on my preferences. I'm mostly looking for one with Zaratsu polishing on the bracelet and case, an interesting dial, and preferably a Spring Drive movement (also open to Hi-Beat...

    Hello, basically I bought an skx off of Reddit a few weeks back for 280 bucks. Sadly the seller was dishonest and sold me a different watch than what he originally described. The bezel was stuck, there was an issue with the crown, it was dirty, had a scratched hardlex and case, and was running...

    Hey all, I’m relatively new to WUS and was hoping to crowdsource some advice. Tl;dr....I’m a young professional interested in buying my first piece. I’ve spent the last few months gathering information on the industry and the technology undergirding new releases. I’m really interested in a few...
  13. Rolex & Tudor
    Sorry to bring up this topic again, but I've been reviewing some of the previous discussions in response to various questions in the forum, and was hoping to get some input for myself. I'm considering buying a used Rolex this year. Specifically, a Rolex produced in 2004 (my daughter's birth...

    Hello All, So, I've been eyeing the Defy El Primero 21 for a while. I keep finding myself coming back to it and then talking myself out of it. The reasoning goes that it's too big and thick for my wrist and the bracelet makes it look even larger due to the integrated bracelet look. I have...

    Hey WUS fam, I have recently had my love for Carl F. Bucherer (re)ignited in the form of their Heritage Chrono. I used to drool over the brand when I first started my journey, but always wrote them off as unattainable. As most of us do - I've progressed and realized it is totally doable...

    After a while of googling, I can't figure out whether it's bad to keep a stopwatch wound up and not running? Because if you store a normal mechanical watch, it will just wind down, and it's common knowledge that it's not ideal to keep a watch wound or in a winder for too long, so I'm not sure...
