second hand

  1. Watchmaking
    Hi Guys, One of the reasons I love mechanical watches is seeing the second hand sweeping. I plan to buy a watch that I love the design but the watch doesn't have the second hand. So can I add an aftermarket second hand to it? All the best!
  2. Dive watches
    Hallo, I need advice: without any apparent reason (I wasn't even wearing it) the second hand on my Momentum Deep 6 Vision got stuck. T he watch works regularly, the problem is just about the second hand. Is there anything I can do without having to take it to repair? Any help is really...

    I've seen questions like this before, but not one exactly like this, so I'll ask for help. I acquired a Seiko SQ4004 from a respectable online auction. When it arrived, I noticed a small crack in the glass, and since the auctioneer automatically puts $50 insurance on every watch, I got my money...

    Dear All, I'm considering buying a second hand Cartier watch for my gf. I have my eyes set on a Cartier Must 21 however, I have found that for a few hundred dollars more I can get a second hand Cartier Panthere (both the round one and the square one.) However the Panthere I have found are older...

    Dear All, This is my first post so I apologize in advance for any kind of mistake I might make! My gf is finishing her PhD and I would like to buy her a nice second hand Cartier watch. My budget is at most $1,500 (given that I'm a student my self at the moment) so I went looking for a watch on...
  7. Officine Panerai
    Hello experts! Newb here. I've seen a great PAM00104 for £3750 ish in the UK (independent jeweller) with box and papers. 2007 model and in great condition. I understand this is a modified ETA movement. My questions are: 1. Are these models well-regarded or should they be avoided? I'm guessing...

    I am looking to purchase a second hand tag heuer, as mentioned above. The watch costs £1295 from any reputable retailer. I've seen it second hand for £750 (already got it lowered to this price, can;t get any lower!) The watch looks absolutely perfect! The only problem that I could find is that...

    Hello I recently just purchased my first rolex datejust, I bought it second hand from a reputable online store. My previous watches from them work fine (omega de ville and cartier tank). my rolex went dead after just 2 weeks, the store claimed that they did check prior sending it out. The year...

    I've seen references to setting the second hand on mechanical chronographs, but I haven't figured how to do that, if possible. I've got a Chrono Callisto with a Caliber 11 movement. Anyone help on this?

    I have a Seiko analog quartz table clock. It's like 30 years old and it has a smooth sweeping second hand. The battery lasts for years and it's always been running. Perfect. What are the reasons to avoid the sweeping second hand with current technology? It should be easy to do. Do you know any...
  13. TAG Heuer
    Hi Everyone, Doing the usual, pulling crown out to 2nd position and pushing the pushers doesn't seem to move the second hand nor either of the registers. Any ideas on how to reset the second hand to the 12 o'clock position? Thanks!
  14. High Accuracy Quartz watches
    After a few decades collecting Swiss watches, I bought a Grand Seiko Spring Drive during a recent business trip to Tokyo. I was amazed at its accuracy, superb finishing and classic legibility. This whetted my appetite for more, and I spoke to Minidriver, who told me about his Chronomaster...
  15. Casio G-Shock
    ​Got a nice new Gshock Aviation GW3000-bb but am outside of the automatic timekeeping calibration area. Managed to set my home city (which was hard enough) but the second hand is 10 seconds out. Anyone know if it possible to reset the second hand? Cant find anything in the manual (although that...

    Hi, I am in search for a watch with a perfect continuous second hand. It doesn't really matter whether it is an automatic or a Quartz, although a Quartz will likely be less expensive. I have searched on the Internet and also placed this question on a dutch watch forum, and until now I see...

    Pretty soon I'll be visiting Manhattan for a few days. As a watchnut, I won't pass up the chance to look a nice souvenir :-d Does anyone have tips on a great spot to shop for a great watch? I like the Swiss mechanical brands and my budget is up to 1500,-. Second hand is not a problem. Websites...

    My Omega X-33 Second hand just started acting erratically. It doesn't move for a little while, then jumps back and forth 1 second, then stops again. I replaced the battery, then reset the time and synchronized the hands to the time. Any thoughts? Thanks

    This may sound simple-minded, but I would like to get some feedback on the subject. I love the look of chronographs and generally use the stopwatch function a couple of times a week. But,...I also love seeing the large second hand move when I glance at the time on my non-chronographs. So...
