    I have this casio G shock G7900 that I had since the 8th grade (in university now). But the battery died and I decided to get a new watch since I can't afford to have it restored (yet) due to poverty. I'm looking for something cheap that is not some crappy plastic knock off hello kitty one, and...

    Hi, Im thinking about buying the RW Nabucco Rivoluzione. They have made a 2nd gen named Nabucco Rivoluzione ii. But I want the first gen without the ii. http://uhrforum.de/attachments/336535d1323275072-raymond-weil-nabucco-rivoluzione-revolutione-img_1083.jpg IMG_3633.jpg Photo by vlkong |...
  5. Pilots' & Military watches
    Specifically not counting G-Shock, which have built-in shock resistance, or those with fully digital displays like Suunto, are pilots' watches like Navitimer and Skyhawk specifically built to withstand the g-forces associated with aviation? I looked around and there are countless stories and...
  6. Vintage & Pocket watches
    This forum has been very useful so far, but I now have a specific question. I have found a skeleton pocket watch that I like, but I have found a few very similar watches with very different price tags. Open Face Skeleton 730-908-25 - Jean Marcel White pocket watch (Jean Marcel) Katsuboya |...

    I'm looking at getting a Speedmaster (either Pro or Date, haven't decided yet), but I'm worried about durability. I work in the Canadian Oil Sands. In the winter, I'll go directly from a 30 degree C/100% humidity indoor environment to -35/extremely dry outdoors. I'm routinely soaked in...
  8. Casio G-Shock
    Hi everyone, first-time poster here. I am seriously thinking of buying GWA-1100 and have read numerous reviews, the manual and pretty much every non-sale-related thread on this forum that I could find but still I have a number of questions/concerns so I would appreciate some assistance...
  9. Suunto
    Hello WUS, Looking to buy a watch from the current Suunto ABC lineup. Is the X-Lander the most durable of the Suunto watches? Need a Suunto that can handle a little abuse & some rough environments. Not necessarily "G-Shock tough" but in the same ballpark. Thank you in advance.

    Hey all, so my fiancee's dad gave her his old Seiko 6309 that he used back when he was a diver. The thing is in excellent condition and all it needs is a new band. I charged it up and it is keeping excellent time. These watches are meant for the long haul! It ticks louder than my skx007 and I...
  11. Casio G-Shock
    Hey guys, I am new to this forum/website and I am planning on buying the G-9300 mudman. I work construction and need a tough durable watch, something that will not completely erode when stucco or a type of effis gets on it. But there is one thing that I don't like about the watch. The band...
  12. Affordable watches
    Hello WUS members, I have been reading the forums for a week or so in search for bargain timepieces that can add some variety to my daily outfit with style. I have mainly been interested in mechanical watches under the $100 mark and I have read good things about chinese "brands" like Jaragar...
  13. Omega
    I'm deciding between the AT 8500 and Quartz. I like the grey face and 38.5 diameter in both. This will be a watch I plan to wear everyday and eventually pass along, so I'm most concerned about durability, longevity, and ongoing maintenance/service costs. I'm less concerned with resale and...

    Hi Everyone, Even though I love my 1964 Omega Seamaster Calendar, after 3 breakdowns, I've come to the conclusion that I need to buy a durable everyday watch. Naturally this leaves me in a great dilemma since there are so many watches I would want to own. Unfortunately I will only be able to...

    First of all, forgive me for flooding the forum with my watch n00b questions. I tried searching the forums and internets and couldn't find any definitive threads started on this topic. Logic and deductive reasoning would suggest that the following applies: 1. More complications = more moving...
  16. Suunto
    I had a Vector years ago but switched to a Pathfinder due to the rep of Casio for having durable watches (still agree with this,,,G-shocks are DURABLE). I found though that the ABC features on that watch were less than reliable, so I got a Core. I love it and don't want it too beat up at work...
  17. Casio G-Shock
    Today I was gardening (to be honest, not one of my favourite activities, trying to be nice to my wife showing attention to what is important to her :-) ). Anyway, I was wearing Riseman and hammering the pole into the ground. The ax which I used for it accidentally slipped from the pole and hit...

    Hello... I'm just about to buy a gorgeous FM Casa Chrono (8885 C CC DT NR) I like the PVD better, but I'm a bit worried about durability. Does anyone have a FM PVD? Are they durable/scratch easily? If they do get scratched, are they repair-able? On the other hand, would the plain steel (8885...
  19. Seiko
    Calling all you SKX007 owners! Hello all, I know that this watch has been discussed to death, but I would like to know how well it performs in time. So, if you’ve had a 007 for a long time (5-10 years, more would be great since this watch has been in production since 1996, AFAIK) please chime...
  20. Digital & ABC watches
    Though obviously not at G-Shock levels, my Timex Ironman Triathlon 30-Lap seems very well built and put together, yet many people talk about how fragile they are. (Breaking from a short fall, e.t.c.) I don't really get it; the watch looks very durable to me! What're your thoughts on the...
