  6. NOMOS Ahoi Datum - Water Damage - $2500

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    I bought this NOMOS Ahoi Datum second-hand, although it originally comes from Watchbuys, an authorized dealer for NOMOS watches. It is in great condition - minimal signs of wear (it is only a year and bit old). I've been debating selling it for a while, since I've been somewhat strapped for...

    Jaeger-LeCoultre
    I recently purchased my first JLC a Grande Taille and whilst stopping my son from running out in front of a car I slipped and my beloved 1 month old reverso hit the deck with me on top of it. It received two 'dings' near the crown and seemed to have survived the fall rather well. I checked the...

    Watch Deals, Feedback & Reputation
    So I just recently bought my first G-shock, a Mudman GW-9300-1JF. After much searching, I found a great deal on eBay.

  14. EEEK!!!...Damaged Date Mechanism CAC111A-BA0850...Just How Bad???

    TAG Heuer
    Hello everyone. I've done plenty of research in this, as well as other forums, before posting about this. I've found more than sufficient explanation as to how, and why, watches get damaged when adjusting the date within a few hours of midnight. I totally get that, and understand it. But...

  16. Have I killed my tourbillon?

    Chinese Mechanical watches
    This story begins as many do with my fiancee and I going to a pub. On the way back home we were caught in the heaviest rain I've ever been outdoors in. Transferred my phone and wallet to my fiancee's purse but totally forgot about my poor watch. I blame the Cooper's brewing company for this...

  18. Atomic G too much sun?

    Casio G-Shock
    Hi Guys - New here - Hello! I recently bought a GW-M5600 and the other day thought it would be a good idea to 'top up' the battery by placing it on my windowsill in a lovely sunny day. Came back an hour later to a VERY hot watch (especially the metal back!) and an LCD that was almost totally...

    Casio G-Shock
    I have one or two cheap, no name batteries laying around. It is advisable to use them in my G-Shocks? Are they able to cause damage to my watches, or they just have smaller capacity. What are your experiences?
