Ocean Two Premium? Lovely watches. I had the black version of the original O2 and do regret selling it.

No problems for me. I had a red/white GMT in my basket, then changed mind.

Re: Trident gaining 10 to 12 seconds....

I feel like a lot of people didn't read the post and only read the topic title. He says it gains 10-12 seconds OVERNIGHT.

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

So does anyone know if this rough winding is normal for our movements? This is what my C60 600 mk2 chronometer sounds like- which is the same movement as the Elite I believe. It's exactly the same as every other SW200 / 2824 watch I have (apart from my Tudor Ranger- that's admittedly a bit smoother...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

Went to Uni at Bath. Very fond memories, together with some very hazy memories. I lived in a flat above an antiques shop at the top of Landown Road.

Re: WTB Watch winder motor

Verifying the motor's at fault would be pretty easy though- they appear to be just brushed DC motors. I'd look for continuity between the terminals of a few 10's of ohms. Putting a bench power supply across it (or a fresh PP3 9V battery) should make it spin OK. Nevertheless, these seem quite cheap h...
