  1. Affordable watches
    Today it dawned on me how enjoyable I find a matching date wheel. While at times it's better to have no date at all, I do find myself attempting to reference a date on watches without one while in rotation. It's always nicer to see a date wheel integrated into the dial instead of contrasting...
  2. Rolex & Tudor
    I am currently looking to purchase a GMT or BB58. The GMT is my first choice but I am worried about spending the money on a watch I know has a frequent issue. However, I would not mind if I knew the 2020-2021 GMT’s were free of the issue. I know that’s an impossible ask as we may never truly...

    Hope this is the right forum... My first mechanical watch was a Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H325150), purchased in ~2011. A few tech details: Movement: ETA 2824-2 Diameter: ca. 40 mm w/o crown Height: ca. 11 mm Lug width: 20 mm guilloché dial Date at 3:00 applied, silver indexes...

    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! If a microbrand watch can do it (Vapaus), why can't you? Why would you just customise the rotor, but not...

    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? Would you judge someone for having the right...

    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. I just looked at the manual and it said to not adjust the date between 9:00 PM and 1:00 AM. I am an idiot and I am...

    I am stuck! I disassembled this nice old movement some time ago. I have been waiting for parts and now I am all set to mount the dial and hands. Then I discover there is nothing to secure the date wheel..! See picture below. In a 1570 movement there are flat pieces of metal mounted round the...
  9. Seiko
    Hey guys, I just bought a 6309 7040 off of the bay and I absolutely love the case. However, I would like to mod the watch with a black day/date wheel (in addition to a new dial and a few more things). What are my options to accomplish this? I have multiple 7002s that I have installed 7s26...

    Have anyone noticed the date wheel of Swiss movements like ETA moves in anit-closkwise, where as in the Japanese movements like the Seiko, citizen etc the date wheel moves in the Clockwise direction??

    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...
  12. Omega
    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...
