    Hello everyone, I recently purchased a Seiko 5 7009A off of Ebay, and it's working great, but I have a small issue. The thing is that the watch keeps time fine, but I noticed right from the start that the oscillating wheel was a little bit noisy. As the days passed by I realized that the watch...
  2. Longines
    I recently came into a black Longines Hydroconquest ref:L3.642.4.56.6 I read it is supposed to use the L633.5 calibre automatic movement but when I checked in the back the Rotor has L636.5 which is the day/date version. I checked to see if there were any ghost clicks where the date adjustment...
  3. Sinn
    Hello, I've bought a brand new Sinn 556a this week and have noticed that the rotor seems to be a bit loose. Its much louder than my previous automatic watchs but the main thing I've noticed is that I can see the rotor through the display back swinging slightly from the faceside to the caseback...

    I have only modded exterior of a watch (bezel, crown, hands etc.) but never touched the movement inside. I am planning to swap the date-wheel (not overlay) on a movement (2892-A2) and need some advice. I want to make minimum changes so was wondering if it necessary to remove the rotor before...

    Is the sound of the oscillating weight the same in all 7s26 when you shake it vertically? I just bought a new 7s26 from china and replaced the oscillating weight, but it is making the same noise again when shaken vertically.

    Hello all, I've already posted about this on the Heads Up! thread, but it got locked as the new month began, so not sure if it's been missed. Or maybe I'm just stating the obvious (I'm new to Automatic watches!) :-) I bought the Rider M002 Bauhaus-style Watch when it went on Sale to $60...
  8. Glycine
    Hello, I picked up a Glycine Incursore Power Reserve model #3880. I bought it from a consignment store for $50, no box or papers. It was kind of an incredible find. I confess, I did not particularly like this model, but given it's insanely low price it would have been stupid not to get it. I...
  9. Rolex & Tudor
    Hello, I have recently purchased a Tudor North Flag pre owned and became aware that the rotor on it was really quite loud when rotating. If I tapped the watch it sounded like a bag of spanners! It makes a kind of rattling sound. Sounded very cheaply made. Could probably post a video of this if I...
  10. Longines
    I was looking at some pictures of the rotor of the Longines Master Collection Moon Phase, an d I saw that there are two types of decorations and two types of writings. Can you please shed some light on this. Thanks
  11. Damasko Uhren
    Hi everyone. I'm nearly a week into owning my first Damasko, as DA44, but have noticed that the movement is extremely noisy, much more so than any other watch I own. Is this normal? I can hear it ticking sometimes even when my arm is in the down at my side position, but perhaps more worrying is...

    I have a Seiko 5, found from my uncle's stuff and I think the rotor is missing, but I'm not sure. Am I right? This is the watch:

    Hi, I found my uncle's watch - an old Seiko 5 - and I want to know the model, but the rotor is missing(I think). This is the watch: Maybe someone can help me with the exact model number. Thank you!

    I have a Sotwa watch with a Soprod A10 movement and the rotor retaining ring (bolt?) has come loose. It's basically the same part as in this video: , the part that he removes / attaches with the red tool. It is a retaining ring which he causes a bolt which holds the rotor bearing in place...
  15. Omega
    Hi All - I am brand new to this site and this forum, and I am hoping to have some beginner's luck with my first post. For anyone that owns (or has owned) a Planet Ocean 8500 coaxial, have you ever heard the rotor make a squeaking noise when it turns? Is this common? Does it indicate a...

    GoS Watches will introduce a new model at Baselworld 2014. GoS Watches is very excited about the "high contrast" stainless damascus steel for which Johan Gustafsson invented and refined the creation process during the autumn. This gives them another edge (no pun intented) on their previous...

    Ok, So I got a Hamilton Jazzmaster Chrono for Christmas from the parents, and I'm more than happy with the watch. They bought it online as there are no AD for Hamilton in Australia whatsoever, and putting an airfare ontop of an already expensive watch was far out of the question. Anyway, my...

    Today, my Seiko Kinetic ska523' rotor noise got significantly louder. (It's only a week old T_T) Before the noise was not noticeably present: I could not really hear the rotor unless I bring the watch close to my ear. Only cause I can suspect is the fact that I washed my hand on the sink and the...
  19. Chinese Mechanical watches
    Yeah, I was going to buy a Getat Panerai homage watch, and decided to get a Parnis Portuguese Power Reserve first instead as a 'trial' of sorts of these chinese mechanicals. When I received it though I was very less than impressed with the noise the rotor makes and I made a comparative video...

    Yeah so not long ago I bought a Parnis Portuguese Power Reserve homage from manbush http://............com/productshow-336-2.html The link claims that it has a Sea Gull 2542 Power Reserve movement which I'm not that familiar with it. The accuracy I haven't tested yet because I didn't buy this...
