  2. Best Leather band for 1887?

    Hirsch grand duke is bullet proof
  3. Toro Submariner V5 vs. V6?

    I was thinking of pulling the trigger on one of these too. What are the V6s updates? ie, anyone know what the differences will be between the v6 and v6s? Found the answer to my own question! .... http://www.rwg.bz/board/index.php?showtopic=113200

  5. Better to hide it from the wife so she doesnt say "not another one"!
  6. Q = Rolex Explorer 1, 36mm or 39mm?

    I purchased a 36mm last month with 2836 for my dad. He loved it so much he's getting a gen! Hence it will probably end up on m2m soon (unless i decide to keep for myself) - watch this space!!
  7. The Watchmaker's Apprentice - Netflix

    I like the part when they come across an omega poster stating "the co-axial by omega" and he replies "well they would say that wouln't they" !
  8. Oh no, i feel like another purchase coming on! Have been waiting for this to be reped for a while!
  9. you might as well just flip it and consider getting a second hand gen if you want it to be flawless. Regarding the bezel, this vid on youtube makes it look easy to take the bezel off and put back on straight - he does it in less than 2mins!!: The video shows a bezel being replaced on a submariner - i assume it would be the same process on an omega? but not sure.
  10. Tudor Pelagos Bezel?

    Ive also had a bezel slightly out of alignment. This vid on youtube makes it look easy to take the bezel off and put back on straight - he does it in less than 2mins: The video shows a bezel being replaced on a submariner - i assume it would be the same process on a tudor but not sure. I havent been brave enough to try it yet!
  11. What's on your short list for 2016?

    New year, new watch....or new watches! Just placed an order for another two reps - tracked down an old 36mm explorer (wanted a smaller watch as a contract to my other larger ones) and a portofino (i was also missing a classy formal dress watch from the collection)!
  12. Movement Question

    The lifespan and time required between services also very much depends on how often the watch is 'running'. If the watch is idle for periods as you rotate your watch collection then clearly there is less wear and tear on the movement than if you wear it everyday! Worth giving each watch a decent run fairly regularly though to keep everything lubricated.
  13. The method shown in the youtube clip is what i'm used to from my previous chronos - this approach has worked with great success in my other watches......however, this method does not work on this particular watch!! Its very frustrating! When i pull out the crown and press the buttons (as suggested in the clip), the chrono operates exactly as it would if the crown was in - ie, it doesnt enter recalibration mode, it just starts/stops as normal. Even if i press and hold both buttons for 2secs (as required in certain models) it still doesnt allow me to realign the second hand. I cant seem to find any obvious combination to put the watch into recalibration mode. There must be a simple way to do this, but its certainly not obvious, and isnt similar the more common methods. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated!
  14. Thanks - however, still no joy! The description on the movement states that its a japanese SII O UK63A. I cant find a user guide for this particular spec. (Ive been able to find guides for similar models which advise you to pull out the crown and then hold the buttons down for 2 secs to enter a recalibration mode - these are all methods which ive already tried but dont work!).
  15. Hi all, I have a seamaster PO chronograph rep with a microstepper quartz movement. As with many common chronograph functions, the main second hand should align at 12 o'clock and only starts 'ticking' when you press the start/stop button, and then should reset to 12 o'clock when you press the reset button. The problem i have is that the main second hand is currently resetting at 59 seconds, rather than 12 o'clock (ie, it is misaligned by 1 second). I owned a similar quartz chronograph previously, and it was rather simple to reset. I simply had to pull out the crown and depress the start/stop buttons to shift the second hand back into position. However, with this particular watch, this solution does not work. When i pull out the crown to the time or date reset position and press the start/stop/reset buttons nothing happens. Ive even tried pressing both buttons together, but again this has no influence on either the main second hand nor the sub dials. I thought this might be a common problem and have searched the forum and google but the only possible solutions ive found are to pull out the crown and reset using the various buttons...unfortunately this doesnt work with this particular quartz movement. Any ideas on how to fix this?? Any help would be much appreciated.
