  3. Rolex Datejust 41 vs Datejust 2

    Can someone link a DJ41 please
  4. Steinhart Ocean 44

    Pepsi looks like it's trying to be something it's not. Almost abit brash. I'd go for the understated black bezel
  5. Steinhart Ocean 44

    As much as I like the Pepsi bezel I voted black as I think it suits the style of the watch better.
  6. Buying a date just 41

    The 41 has a thinner bezel and smaller lugs. Currently not repped. Unless completely anal, no-one will know the difference between the two. As a rule BP are better for Date-Justs/Day-Dates

    how about the A4130 movement - what would your thoughts be on this?
  8. Buying a date just 41

    What’s the difference? How can you tell one from the other?
  9. Steinhart Ocean 44

    The spare bezel sounds like a good plan since it is the only real difference. I was originally thinking Pepsi but then I considered that I have a Seiko 7002, SKX009 and the SRP021 which are all a Pepsi bezel... but wait those are Seiko not Steinhart so I am not going to let that influence my decision...yet...

    I've not been around as long as Greg, but from what I've seen, more often then not when stories like this pop up, there's 1 of 2 causes -- either the person bought the cheapest watches they could find, or they did something to damage the mov'ts. Given the watches you outlined and the costs all-in, I'd have to think you might have bought crap to begin with, hence why it didn't last very long. My starting point advice for all folks new to the hobby is to buy high-end reps for your first purchases -- you can't buy the crap reps that most members here would never touch, then base your view of the hobby on that stuff. Just for context, a good rep these days runs for 220-250 pounds -- I get that's not cheap, but you are getting a higher level of quality for that extra cost. In terms of reliability, I'd suggest getting a hand-wind Panerai. It uses a 6497 mov't that you'll need to wind every few days, but the mov'ts are darn near bulletproof.

  19. FedEx, UPS or DHL into Canada?

    Yup. Decided it's not worth it and I'm not going to order the watch because of the shipping methods It was going to be this one... http://www.legendwatch.cn/segull-st2130-movt-modified-sbdx001-44mm-dimeter_p313.html If you switch the currency from USD to CAD the watch actually gets about 3 bucks cheaper lol.

  23. Hello from the UK

    Sorry when I say UK supplier I think he orders them in as took about 2 weeks to get to him. I will take a movie of the movement though. To be fair the guy was honest but I will double check it's a V6, it's just my fault in assuming all watches were the same quality. Will take it on the chin and try and get the markers sorted [emoji13] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  27. Dead Panerai and other reps

    Hi Greg, what's the movement likely to be in my two Panerai. The site sells an MM76 which is the only automatic movement. If I can find an equivalent I'd like to have a go at replacing it with a better movement. The case and dial I really like so if I can repair them I'd like to go down this path plus there's a personal satisfaction in the achievement. I appreciate they are a budget rep but I feel it's worth spending some money resurrecting them.
