  2. What is up with Raymond Weil!!!

    Public Forum
    Why, if you're a middle sized watch company, can't you match the date wheel to the colour of the dial! I'm getting a good deal on an RW, but the date wheel not matching the dial is annoying!

  4. Do you always keep your date complication up-to-date?

    Public Forum
    Just out of curiosity, when you wear watches with a date wheel, maybe even something fancy like a perpetual/annual calendar, do you always make sure your date is accurate, especially on months with less than 31 days or when your watch needs winding?

    Public Forum
    Hi. I am new here. I just got a new Citizen Eco-Drive Watch. It is a B620 Caliber. I was adjusting the date (this watch only has the date, no day or year). It was around 10:30 PM.

  6. How is the date wheel fixed?? Rolex 1065 movement

  9. Waltham watch date wheel problems

    Hi, This is my first post to watchuseek. I took apart a Waltham watch to reset the set lever. In order to do that I had to remove the hands and dial. A small part fell out that keeps the date wheel from moving. I replaced this part by pushing it against the spring and screwed the cover plate...
  10. Speedmaster Date Wheel color

    I just purchased a used Seamaster Pro (2541.80.00). I sent the serial # to Omega and they (actually) responded within 36 hours and confirmed the watch was a 2541.80 and originally sold in 2003. I also took it to a local jeweler who opened it up and said he did not find any signs that it had...
