    Hi everyone, just joined this community. This is my first ever post and first experience with swiss movement watch. I heard issues with H-50 before, but would never think I would get one right out of the box. I bought a Mechanical Field (H694499616) few days ago from an online shop, and so...
  2. Oris
    Hello, I own an Oris Aquis 400 and have begun to notice some concerning "behavior" as it were. I am familiar with the more widely understood quirks of the movement (jumping hand, ridiculous number of winds needed to charge fully etc.). But I am having some issues I have yet to see discussed. I...

    I bought a Sinn U50 last fall. The stem has three positions. Sometimes when I pull it out for psn 2 or 3 it stops in between, and wont turn anything. Pushing it in and pulling it back out again fixes the situation, but I never experienced this issue with any of my other watches. Is this 1)...

    Hi all, I'm new to automatic watches and just got a Sinn 105 St Sa W. I really like this watch, but I typically only wear it for a few hours per day and many days not at all. I generally don't wear a watch when at home. My problem is that the power reserve doesn't hold long enough between...

    Hi! So i have been servicing a Universal Geneve Polerouter with a cal 69 movement recently. I have encountered an array of issues woth this watch which I have mostly been able to solve. However, there is this one issue where winding is no problem. But when I try to set the time, somehow the...

    My collection includes a few manual winders that I wear quite frequently. I find myself winding them throughout the day, not just once. They don't need it, but it's fun little thing to do. I guess it puts more stress on the mainspring, but if automatics can take it I don't see why manual...
  7. Tissot
    Hello! I recently picked up a Tissot Le Locle Regulateur and I’m absolutely in love with the watch so far. However, when winding the watch with the crown, there seems to be a good amount of resistance when turning it (even when fully unwound). Is this normal? I ordered the watch from...

    So, how long have you kept a mechanical watch ticking in case it was your daily wearer? I guess most collectors have to deal with their watches stopping every now and then, I'm personally more inclined to a one-watch collection, and I got curious. Years maybe? I guess servicing and time setting...

    This is my first automatic watch, however I read the guide and watches some tutorials. When I try to set the time from 2nd position crown - it winds hour hand instead of minute hand. Does that mean the watch is defective? Or am I doing something wrong? Thanks

    Hi all, I just noticed that my speedy's crown quite suddenly started recoiling when winding it. It's not fully wound, so it's not that. Can someone please explain to me, in layman's terms, why this is happening and if it's natural/OK? Is this something that goes away? Please help a new speedy...

    Hi all, I found a Vostok 2414a movement in a regular Komandirskie case in my drawer. There is no rust in it but when I try to unscrew the crown and wind it there is no tension which normally would. There is still those clicking sound by the way. And I noticed on the dial while trying to wind it...

    Hi, As a proud owner of a classic Komandirskie and an Amfibia, I recently got yet another Vostok, this time from Meranom: https://meranom.com/en/komandirskie-classic/vostok-watch-komandirskie-350645.html After about 1 month of (non-continuous) use, I started having some issues with it...

    Just scored this very cool, unique Clinton World Timer with a dive bezel. The seller (on the 'Bay) was very communicative and obviously put some work into restoring the watch, including a "minor service". Everything feels buttery smooth. My vintage watches are mostly hand-wound and I was...

    I received the SARB 033 via UPS, it was running when I opened the box. I wound it about 20 times, set the time and date. I did not wear it and put it in my watch case. It was running before I went to bed, the next morning it had stopped. I am estimating the span of hours from my initial winding...

    Dear WUS I would like to ask your opinions whether I need to get my watch looked it. I got my Black Bay Burgundy 2012 ETA version pre-owned, at a good condition. However I find that it is stopping everytime it is off my wrist for less than 20 hours. I read that it should have a 38 hour power...
