Re: I think I'm DONE with Sellita movements

My second CW, a Sealander 36mm came with an SW200-1 and it’s +15s/d on the wrist. It’s the first mechanical watch with which I have to be careful screwing down the crown since it tends to cross-thread. To prevent this, I think I have it now down to pressing firmly in before rotating. I have long ha...

Re: BumbleBeasts with broken wings. Incident Analysis, and attempt to find Root Cause.

It's always out by 4 seconds as well. If CW did its only final checks before shipping and find an issue, then they could send the watch back to Switzerland for fixing and another official QC sign-off, couldn't they? The point is that since final QC is in Switzerland the pre-ship QC procedures might...

Re: BumbleBeasts with broken wings. Incident Analysis, and attempt to find Root Cause.

The only variable that is glossed over in your writeup is the possibility that the watch indeed did reset to 12 when it left CW. That opens the door to a couple of other questions: 1. Is the packing enough to prohibit the hands from moving in shipment? 2. Is there an issue with the shipper that they...

Re: The JOMW Watch. Erebus Origin.

The hour hand is either too short or too fat. Make it 0.25mm narrower or 1.5mm longer as the current proportions don't work with the seconds hand. I see what they were trying to do here. Typically with that hand design the minute hand is a different color to further differentiate the two. When they...

Re: FLE 2023 Launch Announcement

missF Let me tackle these one at a time. I'll throw in your last question too. For myself, I didn't really think about straps at all during the initial dial phase. To be completely honest I wasn't 100% sure I was going to get one for myself as the project was forming up. Once I saw the mockup on th...
