AllTheWatches commented on Benefits of buying at a storefront/AD versus an app ·

I am loyal to my AD for certain brands; IE does buying from the AD help you with allocation pieces? If not, I am loyal to my savings, IE I buy the best deal for very specific watches. 

AllTheWatches commented on I need your opinion! ·

I’d say trade it in. You’ll take a hit, but it does help with the AD.  

If you can, get it on the bracelet.

AllTheWatches commented on Should I intentionally magnetize my watch ·

I would not recommend it.  Given the parachrom hairspring and other metallurgy properties, Rolex watches from that era up are fairly resistant to magnetic fields. Doing so would require a significant magnet which will likely do more harm than good.

Hate to say it, sounds like it is due for a service. You may be able to get a local maker to regulate it.

AllTheWatches commented on Watchbox question ·

Unless it is a 36” Sony Trinitron (IE giant tube tv) you are fine.

Perhaps the Baltic Aquascape series?


 Or the Vaer D5 Meridian (currently 20% off on their site)

AllTheWatches commented on Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pan Am available now from Grimoldi in Italy! ·

Will wait for the much more talented @celinesimon to help with that!  It is a very cool looking watch. 

AllTheWatches commented on Montblanc watches… what do you think? ·

I am a fan of their Heritage lineup. They are making some nice pieces.

Me: I’m done buying $1k watches. Also me: Oooh, Sakura finally has the SBDC167 back in stock. Buy it now. The lies we tell ourselves.
