    All these watches look so amazing, but if you own one, do you wear it for special occasions only?

    The best way to enjoy a watch is to wear it on your wrist. Unless you're working on the car or doing something like rock climbing, where the watch can get deep scratches or a smashed crystal, i would just wear it and enjoy it.

    Z3c - Any idea if it'll be produced? The only thing I found said "early 2011," which has obviously passed us by. I was hoping it would be available without the bomb timer script on the secondary dial, too...

    Cody,

    No idea, I am sure Roland might know more. I am considering a Bathys 100F so I called him to see what they have in stock..

    Respect the design, but my eye is constantly drawn to the branding rather than the dial. Supwitdat?

    This thread needs more Tissot's and 24-hour watches.

    Check out this Tissot Navigator Seastar T-12 from the early 70's.

    I just got a Reactor watch, they are super burly dive watches. This model is the Titanium Trident with Tritium Tubes and SuperLume. Its really light and perfect for riding.

    That's a somewhat rare watch. It's also a 24 hour watch and will mess you up telling the time on it untill you get use to it.

    In the silver dail, that watch brings high $$!

    Hey all you guys that are not wearing you rolexes and such,

    That think keeping them in the safe is the best thing for them.

    IT'S NOT!!! The movement is a little motor, it needs to run.
    Think about a car, if you didn't start it and drive it but once or twice a year
    would it work properly?

    Being in the watch trade myself, I have had, and worked on many of the watches on this thread.
    Most a good, some better than others. The seiko divers are very underrated IMO; The cases are beefy and movements stout.

    Omegas are the same way, as are Rolex!

    When you talk about Rolland Murphy= RGM. You are talking about the BEST watchmaker in the world. That fact is not in question!

    Anyway, great thread!

    BTW; How is it? That I can work on and repair watches, and I can't fix my bike? Very strange, but so true!

    JR

    Thats a pretty opened ended question.

    What would you like to know!

    There are some pretty extensive sites that go pretty deep in it.

    The 2 sites mentioned on this thread both have sub-forums on watch repair. Time zone and Watchuseek.

    The macro on the camera I have doesn't work well enough to shoot the actual repair. Sorry.

    If you have any questions, I will try to answer them, the best I know how.

    LOL,
    Ok, I'll try!

    IMO, or on this forum, atmo;

    The most awesome piece I have ever worked on was a solid gold presentation Omega Speedmaster #23.
    What makes this so awesome? There were only 30 ever made. They were given to the Apollo astronauts in the program, after we got back from the moon.
    To say it was rare would be an understatement. As I was looking for a part, Omega contacted me and asked about the owenership of the watch. They wanted it for their musseum.
    The owner did not sell. It made me proud that the owner trusted me enough to work on this piece of history.

    Most of the VERY complicated stuff, I sort of pass on to a very good friend of mine. Who as taught me more about fixing watches than I really wanted to know.
    My friend Ken is a true MASTER.

    But back to me. I have worked on a few triple date, triple register, moon phase chronos. Mostly ElPrimeros, or lemania movements.

    Anything more than that, I just send to my friend. That would include ant min repeters or multi complications.

    BTW; The two easiest to service, again atmo, are Rolex and Patek Philippe. As long as you can find parts.

    helps,yes?



    Now why can't I get my bike to shift right! I can fix a watch. A bike can not be that hard. lol!
    Sad but true.
