    Russian watches
    I have been seized with the desire to own a second-hand Soviet era watch. You can pick these up on ebay for ridiculously low prices. And I've been quite taken with the look of Slava watches - especially the civilian day-date ones. I prefer civilian watches to military. However, my (limited)...

    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?

    Public Forum
    First of all, forgive me for flooding the forum with my watch n00b questions. I tried searching the forums and internets and couldn't find any definitive threads started on this topic. Logic and deductive reasoning would suggest that the following applies: 1. More complications = more moving...

  10. How reliable are your mechanical watches?

    Public Forum
    Reliability here is defined by constant performance. It doesn't matter how accurate the watch is (I got a warning from a mod once about mentioning precision vs accuracy, but I assume you know what the difference is). Outside interferences like shock or magnetic field can come into factor. For...
