Nice watch Geuzzz. I have quartz, automatic, and manual wind watches. I prefer automatics. I’ve been a watch fan since I’m a kid. That’s more years than I’m willing to admit Smile

Thnx! I actualy also have one manual wind steinhart pilot, but I almost alway wear one of my automatic divers. I like the “tool watch” feel of divers most.

My favorite watch is an ETA 6498-1 manual wind in a titanium Lum Tec Combat B1; I posted an image in above post.

My Seiko Monster is my favorite. I had to send it back for repair after a year of ownership. Got it back and it was running over 2 minutes fast a day! Brought it to a local jeweler, and he got it within 3 seconds a day. I love this watch!

Also the lumpy strap is really Nice on Seikos (heavy). Google “Seiko lumpy” for inspiration.

Geuzzz, I’d love to mod my own watches, but my vision, and the steadiness of my hands isn’t as good as it was when I was young.

Bought one to my wife some years agi. Not used anymore, she does not like to adjust the time every now and then…

I don’t mind adjusting it once a week. I’ve got several automatic’s, so I’m used to it.

Mee too. I adjusted the spring from the movement but it didnt hit the spot after several attempts.

Now she has my “better” Sea-Gull as everyday watch. It keeps enough good time so not too much of adjusting….

That picture is way too big, but it is a cool watch.
Edit: picture seems better sized now.

Yes sorry about the original size, I’m still figuring out how this forum works Cool
SKXs are very cool watches that work well with most straps and bracelets. It’s too small for my wrists on bracelets but this thick nato “widens” it

I’m missing my watches cuz we’re moving and they are mostly all packed up Sad

But I am enjoying the pics here. This thread helps me get my watch fix Silly

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

Just a tip for mechanical watch guys.

I found a free app on the playstore called wildspectra mobile lite wich gives real time monitoring of the watch beats, i was able to regulate the seagul movment in my parnis, i then started a test on october 2 and my watch is still in the same second, crazy, it looses a second during the day when i wear it and gains it at night when i put the watch down on it’s face.

Fantastic app.

There is a saying on several of the watch forums I frequent, “Friends don’t let friends buy Invicta”. That said, when I first got into the hobby, I did enjoy them. They were gateway watches, similar to the cheaper flashlights that used to excite us.

I have used this app or a similar one and I agree it is very cool.

It uses the phone microphone to listen to the beats. It can calculate the beat frequency. It does a live graph of the beats vs time so you can also see if it is in or out of beat (equal time between the ticks).

Yeah they were looking cool at that time and I like big watches. I used to have 3 invicta watches, one of them is automatic and the rest are big sporty type. Sold them all about 4 years ago.
