you're probably reacting to the people more than you are to the straps themselves. they're normally worn by the sort of dudes who leave their shirt cuffs covering up part of the watch in wrist shots, rave about rusty old ebay seikos, and wear thick plastic framed glasses. it's a shame because the straps themselves aren't so bad, but it's almost impossible not to react with disgust to the sort of people who normally wear them.

The last watch I bought was my 7018, which happened to be bought on Y! Auctions Japan. Incredibly risky, total pain in the ass, but the savings over all the fuckers charging $700+ for these things on eBay made its all completely worth it.

That's always the trade-off with using Yahoo! Japan Auctions vs. using eBay. Much lower prices, but much higher buyer risk.

Our watchmaker is doing alright. I saw him recently to service what was my father's two-tone Rolex Datejust, which I'd had in storage and not been wearing for several years. I recently saw some pics of a two tone DJ on leather and really liked it, so I decided to get it serviced and start wearing it.

Your wrist will expand and contract thru the day. Generally if you just set it so when your wrist is expanded it's on the tight side of comfortable that should work.

One way to find that setting would be to set it how you think you might like it, but then if your wrist ever expands so much it's uncomfortable to wear you need to make it 1 setting looser and stay at that setting unless it happens again.

As vintage watches age, many components such as hands, crowns, and crystals may become unavailable from the original manufacturer. Over time and through servicing, many of these components may be replaced by a watchmaker simply looking to provide a finished product for his client. As they pass through subsequent owners and more and more components are replaced with aftermarket replacements or “borrowed” pieces, the watch stops being genuine and essentially becomes a Franken.

How do I get water out of the dial? Right now it's in a jar of rice but that does not seem to really do anything other then just concentrate the water to the center of the dial.

Long story short the fucking idiots watchmakers that I gave them the watch to fix the broken glass did a shit job in closing and sealing it as well.
So now I have water all over the dial (from a dip in the pool), there is actually a drop of water on the seconds hand moving with it with each beat...
I dont wanna send it again, as I dont trust anyone of those fucking jews(actually jews) here to actually do a decent job.

Watch is Orient Defender. Can I open it, remove the crown and dial and just wipe/dry it and put it all back? (I build scale models so I have the tools and precision, yet I've never opened a mech/auto watch before)
Will that be enough? and wouldn't the water sitting there impact the lubrication of the entire movement in the long run?

John Mayer – an avid vintage watch collector who has acquired over 100 exceptional timepieces of his favoured manufacturers – recently sued his L.A. based dealer over ‘counterfeit’ Rolex watches caused quite a stir in the collectors’ community, and also brought to light some of the issues surrounding the business of vintage watches.

Essentially, Mayer found out that several of the vintage watches he owned, which he had purchased from his dealer, contained components which were not ‘original’ or ‘authentic’. This assessment came directly from Rolex, known to be very careful in protecting their image, especially when it comes to vintage collectible models.

For vintage collectible watches, authenticity means 100 percent original parts; this is the key factor that ultimately determines the value of the watch. But, authenticity in a vintage piece may be very tricky to both define and establish.

In the past, Rolex outsourced some of their parts from a number of suppliers, which accounts for the minor variations on cases and dials, found mainly on the most popular vintage Submariners and Daytonas from the 1950s and ’60s. These models can be very hard to assess, but fortunately Rolex keeps very good records that watch experts can refer to in order to determine whether a piece is really genuine.

White on black dial's objectively easier to see, especially compared to that cream shit with hands at a similar light shade. Militaries figured this shit out well over a century ago; hence all the black dials on issued watches, even pocket watches. My brand of autism doesn't allow for lighter dials and I have worn black, or charcoal, for the past 15 years.

The worst is silver on fucking silver. Impossible to see outside at a glance in bright sunlight. Burn your retinas. Even for a delicate dress watch silver on silver annoys me.
