  1. Oh man, if only this watch were thinner!!!

    Grand Seiko
    Guys, I really love this watch. The SBGR061...I love the ivory dial, the blue seconds hand, the 28,800bph, the strap, the overall tech specs, everything. Well, just 13.1mm, it's just a whole lot thicker than I prefer. I didn't necessarily think this would be the case--or I was hoping...

  3. Used oil that was too thick

    Hi everyone. I am a noob in the mechanical watch world. I found a vintage watch with a Swiss Avia movement. I wanted to give it some help with some oil. Not doing my research, I used household 3-in-1 oil. This is too thick and it bogged down the balance and escapement. Is there any way to clean...
  4. Watch Dimensions - what do you look for?

    Public Forum
    1) Case Width. I love the look of many watches and then find that they simply look ridiculous when on-wrist. The modern trend for large watches has gone too far. I often see forum posts from proud owners of a new watch ...their watch is too large for their wrist - but how can you tell them when...
  5. Can a movement be thicker than the watch's midcase?

    Public Forum
    Just wondering is a movement can be thicker than its watch's mid case. If so, how does it stay secure? I imagine that the mid case would need to be thicker than the movement, minus the rotor. Is that right?

  8. Is there any Spring Drive which is less than 41mm?

    From some that I've seen, SDs are about 41mm which is too big for me personally. Ideally, I'm looking for a 36-39mm SD which could be a grail for me and my 6.5" wrist. Is there one out there that I'm not aware of? Thanks! PS: BTW, it's in my opinion that the majority of GS are too thick (some...
