  1. Bought my first mechanical watch, changed the date when the hour hand was between 9 and 3... did I just break my first real watch?

    Public Forum
    Hi all, As the title suggests, I bought my first mechanical watch: the C60 Trident Pro 600 mk3 38mm. I wasn't aware that the date must not be changed when the hour hand is between 9 and 3. The date turned over correctly when I did it this way however. After that, I tried changing the date a...

    Seiko
    WHAT: As I'm sure many people reading this post have found out, the Sekio G757 has a problem with its screen losing contrast or dying entirely over the years. WHY: I noticed that for my G757s, the contrast would get progressively worse every fifteen seconds, but only when the seconds display...

  5. Most you've spent on a watch that you knew had problems before you bought it

    Affordable watches
    Just bought a vintage longines that I already knew had a problem. I was prepared to pay a bit more for it, but not a lot more. So I searched for a thread on this subject, but nothing showed up. What's the most you have paid for a watch that needed a repair? I'm not talking about a service and...

    TAG Heuer
    Hello people! So my 1887 has not even been a year since I got it. Recently, when I was wearing my Tag, the watch suddenly stopped. I wore it with no problems the day before and I winded my watch this morning. But suddenly around 10 am, my watch suddenly stopped. I don't know why and I tried to...
  8. You would think companies do better QA checks

    Public Forum
    I want to tell you guys about my journey with a Revue Thommen's Specialties watch. I first jumped the gun on a jomashop doorbuster sale. When I received the watch, I immediately asked for a return label because the watch was not new (I mean it was aesthetically but something was fixed inside)...

  10. Mondaine Giant Ultra Black - interior on angle?????

    Public Forum
    I bought this a year ago and has been worn pretty much every day since, therefore minor scratches on the metal exterior, although nothing to explain why it would move like this? Would this void the warranty? Anyone else had this problem or know how to solve this issue/how much a repair would cost?

    Russian watches
    Hi guys, I purchased an Amphibia from Meranom a few weeks back and just picked it up from the post office a couple of days ago. I did quite a lot of research before buying it, so I was really excited! I opened the package and of course tried to wind the watch. I shook the watch to try and start...
  12. WTB - Your broken Invicta 8926

    WTB - Wanted to Buy
    I'm really just after a case with bezel and crystal, but if you have a complete watch that's not running I'm interested as well (I have a spare movement to be used). Scratches and scuffs are fine, assuming it didn't have an accident with a blender or go sliding down the tarmac.

    Seiko
    (Pic borrowed from the web) First post on this sub-forum! Hey all! I've had this watch for a good two or three years now. I don't wear it anymore, but when I noticed the battery had run out several months ago, I went to have it replaced at a local department store. I recall that when she...

    Public Forum
    HeY guys! I'm new to this site and I got a quick question for y'all...was this purchase good in your opinion? Not looking for a value or anything, but do, in your opinion, do you think that 130$ was good for a 1925-1926 (can't tell, the engraving in the back is pretty blurry) Rolex watch, in...

  17. Is my watch broken?

    Public Forum
    I'm new here, and I'm really worried. I just bought a mechanical skeleton Rotary (Rotary Gents White Case Watch - GS02521/06 | Rotary Watches) from a high-street retailer, and I think the staff member who wound my watch didn't really know what they were doing and may have damaged the mechanism...
  18. Replacing Main Spring

    Watchmaking
    I'm not the Hulk, I have no idea how this happened as I am an engineer by trade and like to think I have a modicum of mechanical sympathy. However I have managed to snap the mainspring on my Tissot Seastar. Does anyone have a good lead for sourcing a replacement or even getting it fixed at a...
