    Do watches stop Dead on a flat battery?

    Some of the “better” makes of quartz watches are designed to keep the right time but only tick every 2 or 4 seconds as an early warning mechanism.

    Anyone tried a Klarstein winder?

    Thanks Dean and everyone else. Interesting stuff So no one has come across Klarstein or their Klingenthal. Rather than splash out £350 for their 12 watch monster, I might try a single one first and see what the quality is like...

    Anyone tried a Klarstein winder?

    I’m considering a Klarstein Klingenthal 12 Watch winder. I’ve not had much luck with winders. They seem to pack up very quickly and I’d really like to get one that’s going last more than just a year or so. This one is a lot of money but there’s no point buying it if it’s just like all the others. Anyone had any exposure to Klarstein winders? Or any really good news stories about super robust winders? cheers

    Ever bought a watch from Switzerland?

    Thanks for the advice everyone! It looks my buddy should travel out there. On the 13th maybe!

    Ever bought a watch from Switzerland?

    Would HMRC sting my buddy for 800 quid in import tax if he were to buy a 4000 quid used watch from Switzerland? it is 10 years old apparently and from a private seller. Seems bonkers to me that he’d have to pay VAT on an old article If the answer is Yes, would it be worth his while to just fly over there without a watch and wear it on the way back?

    Happy New Year

    A Happy and a Healthy New Year to Everyone, and especially to some of my friends out there who like myself have not had the best of times health-wise in 2017. May 2018 be a better year for one and all.

    Great story. That must have smarted somewhat. I am unlucky and never fail to bang my left wrist against something or other when I’m working outside so I have a gardening and DIY watch that I don’t care about. Just a very solid and robust Smart watch not a g shock.
  13. I have tried three questions and several IM’s but to no avail. This member has a watch for sale but has never responded to my seven or eight attempts to reach out with a potential trade or sale. Any ideas?
