    I'm a complete novice when it comes to watches, but I wanted to see how much I'd miss my Smartwatch if I gave it up for a mechanical. I got an automatic and really have enjoyed it, but there are two problems with it that I wanted advice on. I'm happy to look at another watch (famous last...

    A friend is visiting in the not-so-distant future and I want to show her a really good watch video to get her to understand what's so cool about watches. She's very artsy so I know she'll appreciate a macro shot of a well finished movement. My current pick is the 3 reasons why FP Journe is next...

    I just won an auction for a Stowa watch on a whim (my first real watch! ) and I don't know anything about it. Can anyone offer information? Is it hand-winding, automatic, quartz?

    It's been a year with my Seiko 5 Military SNK809K2. Lots of compliments with it, was affordable at $40 from Amazon and worked great. Around 6 months after the purchase date my watch started speeding up by minutes. Sent it in to Seiko and they fixed it up. Now 6 months later, my watch is speeding...
