Re: Hand winding

It's always a good idea to contact customer service, that way CW can note potential troubles with a batch of movements and you have a record of the issue in case you have problems in the future.

Re: Why wouldn’t you wear this watch?

I'd wear it if the hands stood out more. I recently decided that I needed to be able to tell time with just a glance at my wrist. Disregarding the difficultly for actually telling time, I think it makes for a great piece of man jewelry.

Re: What's Wrong?

Thank you all, my "obsessions" do tend to ebb and flow over time. I also tend to be a bit excessive in my collecting. Sometimes it's the quest, that that makes makes the obsession fun. Unfortunately, when I overdo it I end up with a pile of stuff that ends up depreciating in a corner. :sho...

What's Wrong?

I've only set one of my quartz watches back since the fall back from Daylight Savings Time. I haven't worn an automatic either. I've only been wearing my G-Shock. Does this humdrum for watches happen occasionally for watch enthusiasts? Or is it just me?

Re: WatchGecko and CW collab?

Although different, it gives me the same type of vibe as the Breitling Superocean.

Re: Nothing more, nothing less...

I wore my Blancpain Trilogy GMT 24/7 for 8 years. It felt like a part of me. I did, however, put it in my pocket if I was going to put my hand in a position of risk. Ultimately, the Blancpain gave me a quiet sense of confidence . In the years I've been knocking about this forum I don't think I've s...

Re: Steinhart Barrique

The black wings on the sides look like plastic to me :thumbdown: They aren't. They are PVD steel. This is just the latest version of this watch. They have made many versions of this case usually with a skull. I have seen some of these for sale from time to time. Here is an example. https://www.artw...
