  1. Affordable watches
    Hello everybody, Hello watch lovers, Via this thread I’d like to ask your support on the search for a watch. A sustainable, durable and maintenance friendly watch. Maybe it’s not in the right thread, if so, my apologies in advance. Looking for the following: Arabic numbers or nothing...

    Hello. So I just got a Squale 20atmos 1545 root beer ceramic. Pretty happy with it. While doing some research I found they use the wire retention system for the bezel. It sort of worried me since I tend to be pretty rough on my watches and it will eventually get gunk, sand or mud in there. I...

    Hello all! I've been reading this forum ever since I bought my first mechanical watch ~5 years ago (a Stowa Antea) and finally decided to join. I'm looking to add a second watch to my collection and I think my top choice is a discontinued watch that would have to be bought at 10-15 years old...

    Hi, new to the forum. Found an family heirloom that belonged to my great-grandfather, born 1904. My grandmother speculated he got it from his uncle who lived in America in the 20's. I'm not sure whether watches like this were available in the US at the time, so not sure if that's the case. Any...

    Hi, I have two Aevig Corvid stealth black watches with dead batteries. One just came out of the box today (I was saving it for a special event for my son, he is off to Basic training next week and needed a watch). I have searched the web and cannot find any information on the replacement...

    I'm buying a new Rolex soon and I want to wear it to work (desk job), but I'm scared of scratching it. What are your tips and tricks for keeping your watch looking as pristine as possible while wearing it almost everyday. Thanks in advance.

    I am a happy owner of H38755751 | Hamilton Watch It's time to have the watch cleaned, according to the Hamilton documentation (Swatch Group U.S.) Does anyone have good or bad stories related to using a Service Center maintenance in LA? Thanks.
  10. Casio G-Shock
    So I apologize if this has been done before. I did a brief search, but did not find anything exactly like this. Plus, members are coming and going everyday, so it won't hurt to stay current. I was perusing the FAQ's on the Casio Worldwide website and noticed one (of many) of the questions...

    Hi Fellow WUSkers, I started my collection 7 years ago, amassing 11 watches to date. I've also just hit my service timeframe where one is coming up for service one after the other. I want to know if some of you have experienced this and how you guys dealt with it. It makes me want to cull...
  13. High-end watches
    Straightforward question. Watch is quite okay (there is a pretty big scratch running right through the brand logo on the case that bothers me a lot, and the timekeeping accuracy is not perfect but at the same time not that bad either, etc). However, my stamped warranty soon runs out. I've seen...
  14. Hamilton
    Hello all! I have a 6 year old Hamilton Jazzmaster auto-chrono. The chrono timer dial is misaligned (ill admit longer than i care to share). I need to run it for a minute and stop it to line up the dial. Having said that, it needs to be fixed, and it's time for a movement cleaning and then a...
  15. Breitling Fake Busters
    I'd be curious hear members' sentiments about fakes, as a way to sport the timepiece of one's dreams, day to day, while avoiding damage or excessive wear to the genuine article. I own and especially relish the Navitimer World with a brown Croc band. Although I wear it often enough, more often...
  16. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I own a Universal Geneve Tri-Compax as well as an Omega WWW military watch. Both were made in around 1945 with manual movements. I was told the Tri-Compax is definitely not water-resistant in any way, so even light splashing is NOT okay. I'm afraid even wiping it with a damp cloth may damage...

    Anybody here requested before, or know about whether or not we could ask them to "change" the hand not to a new one but to a different one? For example, I have this watch that has a dauphine hour/minute hand. And I send this for maintenance to the official brand service center in Europe. Can I...
  18. Breitling
    Friend has an approx 5 year old Blackbird Steel. Prudent to get maintenance performed, I'm sure, though cosmetically it is in outstanding shape. Breitling has a basic service for $170 and the complete overhaul for $750. Interested in whether it makes sense to go for a full overhaul at this...
  19. Clock world
    I have a beautiful skeleton clock that has been very reliable until recently. After I wound it this week it will not tick for long. I didn't move it and have checked that it's level several times (the extent of my troubleshooting skills!). When I start the pendulum it swings freely and...
