    I got interested in two Rados, and was surprised to not find a Rado forum. Back in the day my dad owned a Rado and even then they were known for doing advanced ceramic work. When I get interested in a brand I start looking at the full experience including both ADs and service centers to make...
  2. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hey fellow watch lovers, I’ve been watching from the sidelines and I’m pretty new at collecting vintage. I’m in a fixed income so I’m not picking up Omegas everyday. I tend to scour thrift stores, yard sales, and swap meets and find many hidden gems for next to nothing including this movement...

    I'm looking for suggestions for places to purchase ETA, Miyota, Seiko, as well as other movements. (As a side request, I think it would benefit everyone to have a section of this forum dedicated to watch movements.) I'm looking for places other than eBay and NamokiMods, which are the obvious places.

    Hello everyone. I'm a young fella, new to this forum that just got into watch collecting/horology recently after inheriting my grandfather's modest collection of Swiss Watches. While researching online for some vintages, I came across this obscure company called White Star, that is currently...

    I just came across this admittedly rather old article about the use of silicon in watchmaking, and how it has been rather polarising. A quick summary: On one hand, silicon-based movements are indisputably mechanical (unlike say, Spring Drive). They provide tangible timekeeping advantages, and...

    Hello everyone I recently got a Drop Felix with a STP 1-11 movement, and noticed that it feels pretty tight when hand-winding (noticeably more difficult to hand-wind than the Seiko movements I'm used to). Is this normal for this movement or the ETA 2824 its based on? Because this is my first...

    I make a statement / question because I wonder if I am biased, crazy, naieve or do I really notice a difference. I have many ETA movements and many Sellita movements and I just feel the Sellita performs better. Mostly comparing the 2824 to the 200. Examples of my ETA are Glycine and Hamilton...
  10. Breitling
    Ok, well Breitling has a web summit advertised for the 26th. Who's planning to log in and what are you expecting/hoping to see? My answers: 1. Yes 2. I expect a new ladies watch line (the Galactic is dead and GK has been promising a dedicated ladies watch in late 2020) I wonder if we'll see...

    Hello ;=) I'm looking for solar movements watches. Can you please help me ? It maybe a Chinese watch with a Chinese solar movement (is this possible ? i'm wondering if there is a Chinese company able to provide solar movements for watches) Or it maybe a Japanese solar movement (Citizen, Seiko...

    This will be a rant, of sorts. So it goes. I'd love to hear any and all thoughts about what I am about to say. I think it's a topic we need to talk about more. As watch collecting has become more and more popular, and more and more watch collecting info has come from other enthusiast watch...

    I am fairly new to the watch world and have picked up on some basics. I know that their are 3 types of movements in mechanical, automatic, and quartz and I understand the differences between them.I know that there are differences between Swiss, Japan, German, etc. movements. I have a question on...

    Hello everyone and happy 4th of July! There's tons of information about machines and solutions but it's all over the place mixing professional and hobby level info. I'm hoping to get advice on a good choice for cleaning machine and solutions on a budget. In other words, the expense will be just...

    I almost never put something for sale here, mainly because I'm too lazy and because I usually sell at Uhrforum and the dutch Horlogeforum. But with this movement lot, it's better to sell outside Europe as well. So what do we have here? I have a box full of new Seagull ST36 / UNITAS 6497...
  16. Seiko
    Probably a silly question but here goes anyway: I "presume" that the case size is a function of the movement size inside that watch case, but it isn't. The SARB65 has a 40mm case and the SARB035 has a 38mm case. How is that extra 2mm in case size filled? When looking at an open case-back...

    So, there are large numbers of small and micro watch brands out there these days. By and large, they're all buying movements. When there's no data given about the installed movement...that's never a good sign. I'll tend to just move on. But when they do...it doesn't say that much to me...

    Hello ladies and gentelmen, I want to make my own watch. I have a budget of $500. The problem is that I don't know where to begin and how to begin. Where do I get the movement from? Where do I get the dial from? Etc, etc. I am really exited to make my own watch. I wanted to do it for quite some...

    Just curious. I'm really interested in a H20 Helberg CH6 right now and was going to hold off until they offer it with an ETA movement (which it seems like they're going to do based on the poll they're currently running on their site - bottom right portion of the page if you're interested) but...
