  1. Surprised this hasn't already been answered and been a sticky on the page. What does the seconds hand do? And tell me, can I find one that meets my standards? 43mm minimum diameter Mineral or Sapphire crystal
  2. SpringDrive is definitely the ultimate movement! I would say a second would be an EcoDrive UHF. Wouldn't that be nice!!!?
  3. What have you got in way of over complicated watches? By that I mean something that isn't easy to set or figure out? I just went through a 15 minutes YouTube video trying to figure out how to change the second timezone and set automatic daylight savings time on my Citizen EcoDrive World Time A-T... Wow what a pain! Lol Second worst I had was the Timex Yacht Racer that I had to give away. Almost too many features and functions. Just too confusing for my simple mind! Lol

    unworn watch collecting

    Nope. Not mass produced watches. Maybe something only produced once and a long time ago, a "one off" an "original". But that's more than just a watch, it's a relic or artifact. Like the first Breguet or Cartier made for a queen or King. Otherwise a watch is just a watch. Wear it. Novel concept here I know, but do you know what a wristwatch was made for? Just curious...

    Heads Up - Seiko Sea Urchin

    @alxbly You've got great taste when it comes to watch and strap combinations. I love seeing your Instagram pics. Most of the watches you own I'd never even consider, in fact I'd avoid like the plague, but your strap combinations make my mouth water regardless the watch itself. I dig your style bro, big time. Good on you for making something from what I'd definitely consider absolutely nothing! Just goes to show you, you can hate the look of a watch the way it comes but love the look with the proper "shoes". The right outfit can make even the biggest loser look like "the man". That's why I don't believe in this racism myth I keep hearing about. Can't get hired because of skin. No it's because you dress like a hooligan.
  6. G-shock... Nice gift no matter what it is I say.
  7. Beautiful watch, just too small.

    I've been enlightened by the Zenith.

    orient price any better deals

    Creation is usually the cheapest I've found.

    got one at last

    Victor is a great brand. Honestly, they offer an amazing bang for buck. I've got one of what I consider their best.

    Salvador Dali

    Dali was an extremely queer bloke for sure, but pretty cool art, a lot of it. And some decent fragrances along the way as well.

    Full lume dials

    There have been some really good ones throughout the years. Almost bought an Orient Star full lume several years back. The one I wanted most was a Fortis.

    Festive Watch Pics

    If I had snow here I could participate, but I don't celebrate bs mythological based holidays, so no decorations anywhere near me.

    Who hasn't got a Vostok.

    Wait... Vostok or Boctok? How did we even get one from the other? Lol another reason to stay away from Russian watches, the absurd alphabet and brutal language. But seriously though, I've always considered Russian and Chinese watches much like Disney watches... Just absolute junk that only newbies who have no idea what they're doing and have zero discerning taste would collect.

    Maintenance Schedule

    I prefer maintenance freedom in my life. I know it's impossible to go completely without... I have to wash, brush, change oil, etc but I keep my life as simple as possible. I view my watches similarly to my cars, I know they'll need some "required maintenance" but they are few and far between and nothing regular, so I'm good with it.

    WIS Sacrifices.

    Pocket money, each and every. I've been blessed with charm and in sales I do very very well. I mean, you've all seen it, I pretty much give everything away. But there are some I'm attached to that I can't just giveaway, has nothing to do with money. All the ones I have now that I'm selling are because of their value to me.

    The first few weeks of a new watch.

    No no no, I drink at home alone, like a good drunk. Going out is for 20 somethings.

    The first few weeks of a new watch.

    Nah. I'm not generally rough on things at all. I'm skinny and exceedingly well balanced, always have been. I have zero issues with knowing where things are in relation to my body. There's a term for it, can't recall it right now, but it essentially means spacial awareness, I have that in spades. Of course when I drink it's a whole 'nother story. Lol I can't lie, I drink every night, and I've been known to whack a few door jams on my way to bed from time to time. This is why I always either change watches when I get home, to something cheap I couldn't care less about, or I just don't wear any watch at all. All my watches are in near perfect condition.

    Most complicated watch you've got

    Sounds like a winner. Lol

    unworn watch collecting

    No real faux pas, just seems stupid and pointless to me. You collect art to look at. You collect watches to wear. That's my take and I'm sticking to it.

    Most complicated watch you've got

    Yeah, that looks the part even! Lol

    Whatever happened to.........

    They're pretty bland.
