  1. Watchmaking
    I am looking for a recommendation. I need a trusted watchmaker to fix a 40+ year old Bulova pocket watch. I would prefer to deal in person, if possible. Hence I am particularly interested in skilled folks who reside in eastern Oklahoma, or in metro areas such as Kansas City or Dallas. I will...
  2. Omega
    A while ago, I was lucky enough to purchase an Omega Seamaster Professional Cermaic Blue 41mm Co-Axial for dirt cheap. Around $1500. No box, no papers.The caveat was the seller said some parts may be replaced. I thought at that price it may be worth the gamble. I got it, it looks great...
  3. IWC
    Hello. I just got my IWC Portofino two weeks ago and I realized there was a fine scratch on the watch dial. Although it is hard to see under direct sun light, it is quite noticeable when I pay attention to the scratch. Should I take it back to the IWC shop and demand it to be fixed? Or is this a...

    Hi So last night I visited my grandparents for dinner. We somehow ended up talking about watches and my grandfather bought out his collection. A lot of old broken quartz watches he used to wear on the farm, but two caught my eye. One was a vintage citizen mechanical that he got when he was 15...

    i recently received a Casio Edfifice EF-547D chronograph and i loved it. however i noticed that when i got it out, the minute subdial was pointed at 1 minute. i tried adjusting it via the fast forward mode (pull crown out, hold down 2 o'clock button), but i must have done something wrong because...
  6. Casio G-Shock
    I recently bought this Casio G-shock GA-300-1A. Really like it though I see the digits are too dark and even with the watche's light I can not see them (though I can see everything else inside the watch) if I'm in a pitch black environment. Is there a way to make them lighter? Thank you!

    Hi, the easiest way to explain this is through a photo. As you can see the outer time shows 3:21 but the inner time (red aeroplane) points to 15:00 exactly. There are only two ways I know of setting the times on this watch. 1) pull the crown out one click and only the hour hand will jump one...

    Just put in this watch a model LC1038 in for a battery change and when I got back the chronograph start button at the top is not functioning and instead the button that use to be the stop/reset is the start and now also it cant be reset?.

  10. Seiko
    Hey all, New here with a question and couldn't find a solution in the search function after an hour. My Seiko Arctura Kinetic Chronograph does not work. Holds perfect time and the second hand does NOT do the 2-step. I can click the top button all I want and on a VERY rare occasion, usually...
  11. Pilots' & Military watches
    Hi, I recently picked up a 1945 Elgin A-11 and am considering restoring the watch. the watch to my knowledge has two issues; the lugs are very worn and I wouldn't trust them and it is missing the second hand. I have never fixed a watch before, but was wandering if anyone could point me in the...
  12. Breitling
    Hello all. I have already asked this question over at another major Breitling forum but figured i'd try my luck here as well as i consider this "home" I have obtained a Breitling Super Avenger A13370 manufactured in 2011. It has a factory diamond Bezel. The watch came into my establishment...

    Hi, I got a cheap mechanical pocket watch off of Ebay. It worked fine for about three weeks, until I dropped it. It still keeps good time, but now it randomly stops a couple of times throughout the day. It's stem wound/set, and whenever it stops, all I have to do to get it started again is to...

    Hi I've recently acquired a beautiful (IMO) Kienzle hand wound wristwatch. It has a relatively simple movement. Unfortunately it stops after a few minutes after I wear it and needs a jolt (shake, tap) to start it again. After a few minutes it dies again. But it works perfectly fine sitting on...

    So i just bought an Invicta DNA watch, and when i was attempting to set it, the crown came out with the long piece that goes inside the watch, but the watch kept running as if it were still inside. When i pushed the crown back inside it stops and lets me set it, as if it was out. So basically...

    First time poster; I bought an orange bezel, black rubber strap Battallion III second hand for about $40, which ran fine for about two months until last week, when the second hand began to stall out or twitch for a half second before proceeding. I had the battery swapped, which only slightly...

    The other day my Seiko took a nasty knock. Long story short, both springbars were bent out of shape and the case came clean off the bracelet. I got new springbars and had it repaired at a watch store in my break, but now the hollow end links rattle like crazy against the case of the watch...
  19. Digital & ABC watches
    Has anyone ever used a local jeweller or someone similar to repair a Pathfinder/ProTrek? Is there anyone here who might be prepared to take on an investigation, if not an actual repair? Given the technical skill around, evident from various posts down the years, I wondered if there was an...

    Hi. Does anyone have a fix for a badly-kinked resin strap? I don't want to bend it against the kink in case the resin splits. Would heating it up in hot water help at all? Thanks.
