  1. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi! I recently bought this watch at a market in France and I need some help since I'm new to the watch-world. The watch I found is a Ralco travel watch inside a Louis Vuitton case (I do not know if it is real or not..). The watch has I/43 engraved on the inside corner of the moving lid. The...

    And I'm now convinced she's a keeper. This is in Sequoia National Park btw. It's not White Sands, which is the namesake of the watch, but I still think it was pretty cool.

    This is a long post. I have been collecting watches for several years. My target price is usually under $1000, and I love searching for bargains. Getting a watch at a manufacturer outlet (like Hour Passion for Swatch brands, though Tag and Breitling both have official outlet stores as well...
  4. Affordable watches
    I'm looking for a decent travel watch, that I can take with me on my travels and not have to worry too much if it gets damaged or lost. I have however come to realise that I like watches to be a certain proportion akin to that of a submariner. The market seems to be full of watches that are...
  5. Rolex & Tudor
    Greetings. I (like many others) am on the hunt for a BLNR and on a list with an AD here in Canada where I purchased a Pelagos many years ago. Both my wife and I are looking for a Rolex (BLNR for me and a 31mm date just with precious stones) but not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. We are...

    So prior to Omicron, I had started to consider a trip to Switzerland again, especially after talking to Sven from Minase about Switzerland. It occurred to me that yes, I could plan a long trip to literally hit 10-20 watchmakers that would literally take a month and I'd see nothing else, and...

    I purchased my Speedmaster in the summer of 1999 as a promotion gift to myself. I recently looked at the sales receipt and chuckled when I noted it’s princely sum of just under $1,600…new. Anyway, back than I was assigned to an organization called Joint Task Force Full Accounting located at...

    This December I'll be going to Mexico for vacation. I plan on taking my Tag Aquaracer GMT. I'm going to try and sell it over there because I think I could get a bit more for it there. Before hitting the beach, I'll be spending time with friends in Central Mexico. So I'll sell it there. After...

    This arrived in the mail today. I did away with my watch box when I downsized my collection, and now I prefer to keep my watches in a travel case in the drawer. This makes it easy when I’m traveling and it’s fine on the day to day. The packaging was quite nice and the quality is very good...

  11. Dive watches
    In light of a discussion I recently had online surrounding the topic, "What's Your Adventure Watch?", I thought it would be cool to have everyone post their watches, wrist checks etc while they're doing anything in the WILD! Whether your climbing a mountain, surfing the coast or just casually...
  12. Seiko
    I find myself wearing my Seiko SKX 013 through the airport and on the plane, keeping my one or two other watches that I want to build memories into when I travel, tucked away. I know it's inevitable to bang around a watch in general but I feel like the airport is a torture chamber for a watch...

    There are a number of things that you need to be careful around when relying on watch insurance. Plenty of us will rely to some extent on the Insurance bundled with your credit card. The card companies make bold statements like "you are covered for...." but the fine-print often says otherwise...

    Well, a mini expedition when compared to Sir Hillary's Everest climb. Wife and I visited Glacier National Park this past wk. We hiked 30 miles in 3 days. The season is changing there and the inclement weather made our hikes seem so much more dramatic. We were "in the wild" with marmots, goats...

    Last month I spent 10 days in Honolulu, in a haze of entertaining small children, visiting too many relatives, and choking down maximum sweet bread, papayas, and malasadas. Somehow I managed to find a little time to look at watches, both on the street and in the shop. Here's a hot take. Despite...

    Hey there, Here in Phoenix, AZ there are only a handful of places to go if you want to browse a decent selection of used and vintage watches. Has anywhere visited a shop, either in the US or around the world, that just blew them away with quantity, selection, price, quality, etc.? Where might...

    Relatively new to watch collecting, with an interest in vintage Le Coultre's and Hamilton's. My wife and I will be traveling to Geneva, Switzerland in late September / early October this year. We're looking for fun watch-oriented activities to do while we're there. interested in watchmaking...

    Given that most world timers feature 24 cities representing the 24 primary time zones of the globe, there are numerous options for representing a given time zone. Country of origin/market country and era of manufacture certainly factor into the choices for representative cities. What cities...

    When I was looking for some information on this time piece there wasn't much. So I think my "6 months on the wrist" review can be of some use for someone thinking about purchasing this watch. First, I'll do some specs overview then will share my thoughts and experience. Movement: Kinetic...
