  1. BB58 Magnetic resistance

    Rolex & Tudor
    Hello all, While researching one of my potential future purchases, there’s one topic I haven’t been able to find much information on and that is the magnetic resistance of the current BB58. I’m also considering an Omega, either 8800 or 8900 movements which are a-magnetic and can withstand up...
  2. The more things change the more they stay the same

    Public Forum
    plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose Humans are amazingly resistant to change. Note: I said resistant not resilient. This is a spin off from a thread that discussed homage/look alike watches. When we get new watches do we often get derivatives, homages, or even slight variations of pieces...
  3. Water resistance experiences post battery changes...

    Casio G-Shock
    A thought before looking into ordering a Muddy... I'm ok with changing batteries in watches as long as I know I will not compromise the performance of the watch. I have several mechanical and ana-digis left in my collection but I am now down 1 G-Shock. I have my Dad my GW-300 as I was tired...
  4. Silly question, but on Divers and 10ATM/100m+ water resistance, do you always have to pressure seal?

    Public Forum
    Yeah, What I mean by that is if the case back comes off, does that automatically nulify the water resistance until it is pressure sealed again? I ask because I took one of my watches to one of those watch kiosk shops (wouldn't entirely call everyone of the people that work these places...
  5. Are the old Hamilton military issue watches at all shock-resistant...?

    Public Forum
    Logic suggests to me that military watches (even vintage ones) should be shock-resistant to some degree considering the conditions they're built to be used in... but can anyone confirm this for me? The particular kind of watch I'm talking about, Hamilton military issue: (Image borrowed from...
  6. Marathon GSAR's water resistance

    Dive watches
    I just got my GSAR for about two weeks and today I went to a local watchmaker to ask them some questions regarding the crystal sapphire. I also asked them to do the water resistance testing. So the guy took my watch and put it into the machine of theirs. He ran the test three times and my GSAR...
  7. Attach dial feet

    Watchmaking
    Hello! I am trying to attach some copper dial feet to a brass dial. I have tried soldering and also brazing but the connection is very weak/brittle and the feet snap off easily. I have read something on another forum about resistance soldering but I am not convinced that will help…. How do...
  8. Spare seal?

    Casio G-Shock
    I need a seal - not the aquatic mammal, nor the military acronym version (I know what you lot are like...) for my ailing DW-004. As you may know, it recently drowned whilst swimming. I dried it out and got a time display working and tried it again, whereupon it duly drowned again. Well, it's...
  9. Sinn 656 shows 20 BAR on caseback

    Sinn
    Hi everyone, I am pretty new to the forum but it's been a fantastic education for me and you have all helped me a great deal in choosing my new 656, so thank you all for that! When I got my 656 from Neil at Chronomaster (excellent service - highly recommended) I was surprised to see it has...
