    In my opinion, watchmaking is equal parts technical ingenuity and creative craftsmanship. The technical ingenuity is often hidden, with incredible complications and gear train designs, whereas the artisanal skills are shown off through intricate dial work. When you think handmade enamel dials...

Not sure if my eyesight is getting worse but I'm one of those that want to set the time in perfect sync hitting the markets perfectly to the T.

    On some watch dials I see the jewels written as "17 камень" but on others as "17 камней". I studied some Russian in school years ago, but not enough to know if this is simply a minor difference in wording, or, if one is authentic and one is a fake. Thoughts?

    Hi everyone! I finally brought in my old Doxa to get it serviced. After receiving a new mainspring, and having removed quite a bit of rust, it's back up and running quite well. It also had among other things, a damaged crystal that was replaced, an random crown that was replaced, as well as...

    Hi all, trivial question: I have a case fit for an ETA2824 that the seller says it's compatible with dials 28-28.5mm in diameter. Do you think I can get away with a 27mm dial? Or do you think that 1-1.5mm difference will be enough to show up at the dial borders? Thank you in advance!
