    Hi folks, I just recently purchased my first watch with a SW200-1 movement in it (Glycine caliber GL224), and noticed that whenever I hand-wind, I can hear the rotor move in the back. Actually, I'm not 100% sure if it's the rotor, but sounds pretty similar to the sound the rotor makes when I...

    Greetings all. I am waiting on my recently ordered Bulova lunar pilot, ref 96B251.This one comes with leather and nato-ish straps. I have read that for some arcane reason Bulova made it incredibly difficult to put a bracelet on this version. and while it´s not a huge deal if it can´t be done, I...

    I'm at a weird place in my watch journey and need some potential suggestions. I've got two watches that have been my current 'collection' for quite some time (Tudor BB58 and IWC Mark XVIII LPP) and have been looking to add a third. I've worked through a Rolex Air King 14000, Nomos Orion...

    What are your opinions and views on this combination? I have finished a few dials...however...due to thickness, mechanical movements will have to be specially made as a custom order. Production times for these "high hand" movement are atleast 6 months or more. There is a Ronda movement in stock...

    Hello everyone. I recently came across a yema watch that really peaked my fancy. To my dismay, it appears the actual company seems to be regarded as the worst thing to come out of France since the “Culte de la Raison”. Jokes aside it seems like they have a history of treating customers very...

    Hey everyone, So I wanted to buy my second watch, the first one being a black ECB-S100 steel Casio, but I wanted to get a sleek and affordable one and I can't make a choice between the Invicta 8932 and the Timex TW2T28000, both entirely different watches. First of all, I chose the Invicta...

    I bought my first mechanical watch, which is an Orient Symphony 3, about 2 years ago and found myself rarely wear it outside of work and school. I love the practicality and the appearance of the watch but whenever I decide to use it, my wrist gets really sweaty and uncomfortable, especially when...

    I don't know if it's bad luck or if my expectations for the watch is too high, but I've broken a fair amount of G-Shocks. My first one I bought at the MCX in boot camp. It died to a rifle butt stock getting out of a truck. My second got lost in the woods as I was putting my pack on after a...

    I've recently found and repaired an original Swiss Army watch. This was before it was branded "Victorinox". When were the Swiss Army watches bought by Victorinox, or at least branded by them? And where does Wenger play into this. If it makes any difference, I've verified that my watch is an...

    I’m looking for a nice dive watch with a caseback that doesn't pinch or directly screw into caseback deforming the gasket/seal. I guess similar to the Vostok amphibia. I have seen the super compressors from Chris ward and farer but don’t know if the screw down caseback pinches the gasket. Reason...

    I have been looking to buy a diver style watch in the $1500-$3000 range. Many of the watches that I love I noticed have some sort of silicon parts in them (or even worse, plastic,surprisingly). I plan on owning this watch for the majority of my life and if things go right,maybe even passing it...

    Today arrived my new Seiko 5 snk807, and as expected (because the seller said it's was only the watch and it's tag) it didn't come with it's box, manual or guarantee card I checked everything that the internet said to check to see if it is a fake or not, everything indicates that is real but a...

    As a quick backstory to this piece, this was amongst a collection of clockworks and dials that my grandfather had collected over many years. This plate, along with the works and dials and parts, spent over 20 years in a safe and I have recently gotten interested in watches and looked at all his...

    Hi all, When the crown of my gwg-1000 is unscrewed and pulled out, it is like the top of the crown tilts slightly to the side, just enough to be noticeable upon inspection. Further, when I push down on the other side of the crown (the one tilting up) it can be moved down slightly. It seems to...

    Close to pulling the trigger, I'm a huge fan of the EP Chronomaster original at 38MM... everything except the lack of hour counter. To me, a more useful scenario would be a melding of the 3600 and 400 with: 60 hr power, normal tachy scale, hour counter, sweet sweet cursive C.O. Primero font, and...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post. I recently bought a Carl F Bucherer Manero Autodate, and I was very surprised with its winding mechanism, as I've never seen something like that and I'm actually wondering if it's expected... I'm sharing a video below. Spinning the crown will make the entire...
