  1. Seiko
    Hi all, I just recently got my SARB035 back from the authorized Seiko service center where I had the original case swapped for a new one (owing to the original having case imperfections) only to notice that the replacement I got is also poorly finished. If you take a closer look, you'll notice...

    Hallo to everybody! I would like to share an easy and cheap way to put a Nato/Zulu/tissue strap on a Vostok Neptune. Maybe it's not the best way, but if you, like me, don't have sophisticated instruments or money can be a cheap solution!b-) Here it is what you need: Pay attention that lugs...

    Hi everyone, I just purchased a Steinhart Ocean Vintage GMT – I'm super, super, super excited for it to arrive in the mail. I noticed the watch does not have lug holes drilled through the entirety of the lug to make for easy strap changes. I'm a fan of this system, and I was wondering – is...

    Hello everyone, please excuse my newness. I just picked up my first automatic watch off ebay...Probably payed too much, but I really liked the looks of this guy and I suppose I owed myself a present. My only problem is I can't find much information about the line, specifically the band lug...

    Hi everyone, I have the following problem: I have got a Fortis Flieger automatic, 595.18.158.1, a watch i love. Now i'm missing a part for it. I believe it is called lugpiece or spring cover or someting like that, it's the part that covers the spring in the end of the bracelet. I have been in...
  7. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hello, I have recently come into possession of a 1930s ladies Rolex from a relative, in original condition (except the strap). Unfortunately when I tried to get the strap replaced, one side of the lug came off. Needless to say I am extremely worried and am wondering if it can be soldered back...
  8. Dive watches
    Even after years in the watch world, I've yet to buy a proper dive watch. A lot of divers these days seem to have big, blocky cases that are extra thick. I'm looking for a smaller case diver (40mm or less), with a relatively traditional, somewhat slimmer case, and big lug holes. A domed sapphire...
  9. Orient
    I can't explain why, but not only do I like the convenience of lug holes, but I like the look too. If anyone has pics of their Orients with them, let's have a look. Mine don't have them.

    I just bought the SNE107 from Amazon and have yet to receive it, but was wondering in the mean time if anyone new the Lug to Lug length of the watch?
  11. Straps & Bracelets
    I have a watch with a strange style of lug (an Orient M-Force actually).. where it looks as though it would fit a 22mm strap, but when you look at the underside of the watch, the lug spacing is only 18mm. That makes an 18mm strap look way too small, but a 22mm isn't possible to attach. The watch...

    I'm looking for a good tool to remove the lug screws on my Prometheus Ocean Diver and just to have on hand when I need to remove lug or bracelet screws. I want something to make the job easier, especially when there is Loctite applied, and I want to avoid scratching the watch at all costs! Has...
  13. Prometheus Watch Company
    I've read of the issues regarding removal of the lug screws on the Ocean Diver, and it seems like the best method to loosen the LocTite is to use a soldering iron to heat the screw. However, how do I know which end of the lug is the screw end, and which is the bolt end? Also, has anyone ever...
