    A simple question that appeals to all of our different biases: does the weight of a watch correlate directly to the perception of quality? For some people, a heavier (and in many cases, denser) watch gives them the feeling that the watch is of a high value, and in the opposite, the lighter a...
  2. Breitling
    Hey WUS members - relatively new member here, but long time Breitling fan/collector. That said, I have some older pieces that have been solid over the years, but lately a lot of my newer pieces have been having issues. Am I just having a streak of bad luck, or are others seeing quality issues...

    https://www.finwatchstraps.com Makes one of my favorit straps. High end leathers & excellent craftmanship. They age beautifully and hand made in Finland. Goes really well with Omega vintage watches. This is the latest one. Highly recommended!

    Hello, as the title states I am looking for shops where I can buy straps within the EU - because of tax etc. it has to be within the EU as I live in Denmark. Do you know of any good quality watch straps that can be purchased within the EU? :) I've bought a few straps from cheapestnatostraps but...

    Hi, I apologize in advance to those who may find this question to be old and annoying. I am looking to buy some screwdrivers and other tools to do basic things with watches. Just for hobby level things like changing the batteries and doing superficial cleaning, as well as adjusting bracelets. I...

    I note that many microbrand and mass market, low cost watches don’t have serial numbers, although some appearing as limited editions may have an edition number, e.g. number 201 out of a batch of 500. Does having a serial number mark a watch out as being anything special compared to its...

    I was reading some old threads here trying to gain insights on cases, materials, quality, etc. I read some folks commenting on how it is very subjective and all in our minds. That when it comes to a polished case, they don't see that big of a difference from their kids watches to their more...

    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

    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.

    Just purchased a used Certina DS Action Diver (Visually it's in great shape) from eBay. Everything seems normal except for the bezel action. 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...

    I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong place. I am looking for an affordable brown 16mm bund band for a Marathon general purpose mechanical. I think it would be a great match for this watch. Unfortunately I can't seem to find anything suitable on eBay or Amazon and I've...

    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...

    SOLD Thanks WUS and Buyer! I bought this 556i and a 104, to determine a 'daily' watch for me. I chose the 104 (I have huge wrists). The 556i has very minor desk dive marks on the clasp, you can see them in the photo. Otherwise this watch is mint, and keeps a consistent +4 seconds daily. 2...
