loose

  1. Sinn
    Hello, I've bought a brand new Sinn 556a this week and have noticed that the rotor seems to be a bit loose. Its much louder than my previous automatic watchs but the main thing I've noticed is that I can see the rotor through the display back swinging slightly from the faceside to the caseback...
  2. Affordable watches
    Just recieved my Casio Duro, looks fab but found there to be some play in the second hand. This play allows the hand to bounce and dither a little in operation. If I pull the crown out and hack the seconds hand, tilting the watch shows this play to be around 1/3 of a second. A lot of people...
  3. Omega
    Well I have been proud of my Seamaster 300M chrono diver since owing from new almost 4 years now. I had been wearing it in the sea every day for a month in Greece and every evening rinsing in clean water. Then, about a month ago I noticed some steam/condensation inside the glass one morning...

    I've had my SNZF29 5 Sport Dive Watch for about two years. I really like this watch, but it's bezel has never rotated smoothly. Sometimes I could barely turn it. I took it to my local Jeweler for repair. They cleaned it, but the problem came back. I sent it to the SekioUSA Service Center in...
  5. Seiko
    I just received this beautiful watch today and noticed that the wording on the "Citizen Eco Drive" circular logo (located on the case back) was a bit off center. Out of curiosity I pressed down with my thumbs (kind of hard) and tried to twist it to center it - it moved slightly and returned back...
  6. Casio G-Shock
    I have a few great G-shocks that I bought recently but I have been consistently, slight annoyed with. The best fit I can get with the resin band are: 1. Just slightly too tight, kinda 2. A little bit too loose. Well, I'm sure I'm not the first person to have this issue or to find a...
  7. Straps & Bracelets
    Hello everyone :) My new watch, a Hamilton Jazzmaster just arrived. However, as this is my first "real" watch, i've noticed that the steel bracelet is quite long for my wrist and it makes it look loose. What should i do?
  8. Public Forum
    First post from a new watch owner! Yesterday I got a ~€ 400 sub homage from a European manufacturer in the mail. The watch looks stunning, but smells quite strongly of engine grease oil. This smell transfers to my hands and bothers me at night. Is this normal? I would expect Swiss watches to...
  9. Seiko
    Hello everyone, I have recently bough my first Seiko SKX007. I have to say that for what i have payed, I got an excellent watch. I have the K1 version, on the stock rubber band and I think it looks great :-). I do have a question though. I've had the watch for about 12 days and at first the...
  10. Omega
    Sorry if the subject line makes no sense - I didn't really know how to word my question... First, some background: I started reading this forum a few months ago when I was researching Omega in general and then the Seamaster line. I ended up getting a Seamaster 300M Chrono Diver in black...
  11. Watchmaking
    I have a loose Seagull ST1901 (essentially a Venus 175) that wont be going into a watch for a few months or so. I don't have a factory plastic case for it like most new movements come in. How should I store it? Is it possible to get an assortment of those factory plastic movement cases from...
