  1. 6 O' Clock Crown

    Watchmaking
    Our design has a "vertical" face, taller than wide. "Portrait" mode? ))) We are looking for a quality quartz movement, 3-hand, with its stem at the 6:00 position. So far, we see only the Miyota 5Y30 - 5.5 x 6.75' ' '. Can any of the seasoned folks here suggest another option? Regards, Jay
  2. Ordered a watch from Meranom 70 days ago and it's still in Russia.

    Russian watches
    I keep asking them for a refund and they tell me to keep waiting. I tried to call Paypal and they don't answer the phone due to the coronavirus so I filled out a form, which they sent to Meranom who will ignore it. Never again.

I can only turn the bezel two or three clicks at a time (and this is while applying substantial pressure). I have multiple dive watches and none are this...

  5. State of Quartz Swatch Quality/Accuracy 2017 Onwards

    Public Forum
    Hi, As I can see according to the latest couple of years, Swatch has become more of a 'Fashion' brand, seemingly focusing on quantity over quality (please correct me if I am wrong). With that said, I wonder what is the state of their quartz movement. Is it accurate? Is it going to last a good...

  17. Warranty Claim and Return Rates for major watch brands

    Public Forum
    Very interested in finding out if there is any data available on watches similar to the JD Power or Consumer Reports on automotive reliability: for every brand of watch, how often is there a warranty claim? I would imagine much of this data would only be available from the brands themselves who...
