Just order: one hand, two screwdrivers and loctite… !“ Who came up with ...

Re: Bracelet resizing?

Hi all - I used the tip provided by Bahnstormer_vRS and resized my first CW bracelet. After the experience I can 100% recommend everyone use that technique to make it a thousand times easier to remove the screws. I learned the hard way that even as you work removing one link, you need to heat the br...

Re: 1 watch vs a collection

This is subjective. Obviously! And there are so many different perspectives: Have one or just a (small number) few but higher-end watches. Have many, but more lower-end (or be filthy rich so you can afford many higher-end). How does one feel about the watch complimenting / going with the outfit (not...

Dumb question: How do you warm it up? Soak the bracelet in warm water before unscrewing?

Thanks.

Re: Clearance has started

How likely would it be to find a C63 Stainless Steel bracelet in Clearance? I'm assuming not-too-likely. :(

Re: Number of Watches in Collection Question

Hello Everyone! I have been collecting for about 2 1/2 years now and need some advice on number of watches in a collection. I currently stand at 17 (4 nice quartz and the rest are auto) and if I fully execute my strategy I will be at 31. This does not include a few Casio's I have laying around. As ...

Re: Number of Watches in Collection Question

Just curious: 1. How many watches are in your collection: 2. Do you have a strategy or just buy what you like? 3. What is the best number to have in your collection? 4. How do you manage your yearly purchases? I’m more a wannabe collector than a collector, so take anything I say with a grain of sal...

Re: Bracelet resizing?

Indeed, the double screw system leaves something to be desired (and from a technical perspective not sure I understand the benefit v. single screw systems). fwiw, single screw systems are really easy to resize on your own, and as others have posted here there are benefits, especially if you are pic...

It is, and it will. Sorry :lol:
Thanks (I think?). Your laughter makes me think you know where I may be heading. :o

Re: Sale Live

I promised I would post a pic of my C65 Aquitaine once I received it. Came in the mail a couple days ago and I had it sized today. PXL_20230114_211909939.jpg Love the look. I was considering the green C65; went with the blue. Both I think are spectacular. Just need to order a small enough screwdriv...
