  1. Jaeger-LeCoultre
    Hello there! I recently purchased a used Jaeger LeCoultre MUTM online, and I have a few more days left within the return window. I previously had a JLC Reserve de Marche, sold it, and purchased the MUTM because I like the less cluttered dial (and the indicator on a 40-hour power reserve wasn’t...
  2. Omega
    I wore my trusty Seamaster almost daily since 2000, when I got it for a wedding gift. In that time, aside from getting the clasp adjusted a year or so ago, I don't remember ever taking it in for service or maintenance. I don't abuse it or do anything athletic/extreme/outdoors with it other than...

    This used to be my collection: I was a n00b and my watch collection exploded in a series of fits and starts. Then a zen approach to life and possessions set in and I started noticing the "X no. of watches" posts on here. (I even wrote my own, in ignorance.) The one that really resonated came...

    We've had lots of talk here about slimming down our collections. This serendipitously coincided with my slightly more Zen approach to life, i.e. trying to reduce how much material, physical "stuff" I own. I had an 11-watch system going on which I realized was excessive (to me): · 4-watch...

    Hello, everyone I just recently got my first automatic watch that was actually nice enough to have a manual wind capability. I've heard you can't really over-wind a watch, but that brings me to this question: how can you tell when you're done winding?

    My first post revealed my starting collection, including some of the wrong turns taken between then and now. That, and the support of WUS, helped hone my tastes and enabled me to make wiser watch purchases. But all along I was missing a strategy, beyond "looks nice, cool movement, and I can...

    Greetings! I am a new member and this is my first post. I apologize if this question is inappropriate in any way. I tried but failed to find a satisfactory answer using the search engine, so here goes. I recently bought my first Vostok Amphibia in the 060 series case with the shrouded lugs...
  8. Watchmaking
    I recently bought some old elgin pocket watch movements off eBay. They are of varying sizes and all are early 1900's pocket watches. I've taken one apart and cleaned the parts in an ultrasonic cleaner. However, while I have it apart, I wanted to test the mainspring. It's currently in its barrel...

    My birthday is this month and my girlfriend of 10yrs has been very persistent in getting me something special this year. Supposedly a new phone but I was able to convince her to get me a watch instead as I'm not fond of investing in items which depreciate to about half their original price in a...

    Hi There, Im looking at a Grand Carrera Calibre 6 RS For just under £2000.

    For my graduation from high school, my father gave me 500 dollars with which to buy a watch. He gave me no requirements, save for that it lasts for a long time. I've spent the last two weeks searching amazon primarily, and originally though that this Bulova Precisionist met my criteria very...

    I thought I read somewhere that you can adjust how often your Riseman measures the Barometric pressure and Altitude. If this is true, how do I achieve this? The Riseman has some strange algorithms for adjusting it's settings!:-s Any tips for this and other things I should know? Thanks, Hawk

    Happy Birthday to me! I have been lurking for a few weeks and have bought my first Debaufre and now am on the road to becoming an addict. A few weeks ago I was certain I was going to buy a Citizen Blue Angel in Titanium and went online to find a good price on it. I found what I considered a...
