  1. I have a gorgeous IWC FA Jones Portuguese in “platinum” that I love so much I bought it a gen strap. I am sad to say that the hand-wound movement started running more than 5 minutes an hour fast. Any ideas? I really, really, really want to fix it.
  2. Hello everyone! Introductions (skip the next paragraph if you want to stay in topic lol :D) Let me start with introducing myself. Im a 30-year-old watch lover from Finland and currently hunting for a quality rep. I own some gen watches and probably could afford to continue buying them gen but have recently built a great intrest towards high quality reps. It all started when my watchsmith explained to me in a bit more detail how modern reps are getting better and better every day! I love my watches dont get me wrong but I also tend to get bored with them and start looking for new "lovers" every year or so. I think it's also worth mentioning that before this post I've been diving through the massive amounts of high quality information here for about 10 hours in the past few days. But enough of this and lets get to the topic! My concern is about the life expectance of the movements inside the high quality reps. I've red some great stickies about the expectations one should have for the reps in general and if I remember correctly getting a year or two without maintenance is generally considered very good for a rep - especially for a A7750. Is there anyway I can make sure I can enjoy my rep for longer? Some posts also mentioned that the movements themselves are quite good but they have been put together in such a hurry that usually they are not well oiled and might be dirty or even rusty! -Do people straight away when they get the watch put them through some sort of light maintenance (oiling and cleaning etc.?) Can you do it yourself or do you need a educated professional to do it? Dropping 300+$ on a rep watch seems reasonable but I'd rather not see it fail in it's first year. Some ppl also wrote that the quality of the movements is also increasing all the time. Are my assumptions mentioned earlier based on a alrdy outdated information? Do the modern versions come with a more realible movements? For my first rep I'm thinking about staying with the super reps or NWBIGs (a very useful post in the RWI clubroom!!!) and many of the watches Im intrested in are using the notorious A7750. The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 SS with black ceramic bezel is my current favourite!
  3. Hi community! I recently joined this forum and already read through, anyway, I'm actually really noob. Now I'm totally interested in buying my first watch. It should be the Breitling Navitimer 01, Black Dial with Sticks. I heard that there are two common replica versions of this watch. The older one has more flaws, but a 28800bph movement. The newer one is said to be copied more precise, but has a 21600bph movement, isn't this really obvious and a big flaw? I'd really like to have a 28800 movement! Is there already a newer version, which has corrected old flaws but also a faster movement and not 21600? So I just found another model on TrustyTime. http://www.ttw-1388.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=16_143&products_id=15405 Info says it has a Nickle Plated Asia 7750 Valjoux movement. I've never heard of "Valjoux", but I heard that the older 7750 movements are extremely unreliable?! Is Valjoux a newer, better version and therefore more reliable? Or is it the same and also not really reliable? What is your general opinion about this watch from TrustyTime? Thank you for your help in advance. Regards JK
