Rolex is a godsend to the watch industry. Are you thankful to Rolex for the watch on your wrist? Or are you a churlish ingrate?

I have Rolex to thank for my Grand Seiko SLGA015. Like many GS, the SLGA015 has a subtle dial that from a distance looks like a simple matte black dia...

Oof!  You're right!  That does require quite a bit of winding to change the date!

Yes...  a watch winder would be nice!

No need to put it on a winder.  If you don't mind setting the date and time if its power reserve runs out, then no point in having the movement continually running.

Just make sure to never use the "quickset date" function between 10pm and 2am, and you're all good.

  1. No, no flyback.  Like, what Chinese rep maker is gonna invest in developing a flyback chronograph movement???  It's a fake 7750 Asian clone movement.  And it sucks.  The rotor is noisy, and I'm sure the watch will last exactly another 10 minutes before exploding
  2.  I'll DM you the website if you're really interested, but you shouldn't be.  The website I got it from is the website I've gotten like 50 reps from.  But, it's a whole to-do.  Like, you gotta email with them to find out what's in stock, what isn't, it's a pain in the butt to buy from them, then you gotta wait like 12 weeks for the watch to arrive...  It's awful

Only do it if you're doing it for the laughs.  Otherwise, Chinese reps (other than Rolexes) feel utterly janky and horrifying in the metal.

I don't even buy reps as gag gifts anymore.  Instead, this year, I'm doing this:

This Christmas, all my co-workers have officially become lords and ladies.

The year before, everyone got one of these: Squatty Potty The Original Bathroom Toilet Stool, 7 Inch  height, White : Health & Household

Saw this on the wrist of my co-worker...

Type XXI 3817 | Breguet

Breguet Type XXI 3817, with day/night indicator at 3 o’clock, 12-hour totalizer and date at 6 o’clock, small seconds at 9 o’clock, central minute totalizer, with “flyback” functionality!!!

Oh, wait...  my bad.  Not the watch I saw on his wrist.  What I actually saw was a Chinese rep of the Breguet Type XXI 3817.  How do I know it was a rep?  Because I bought it for him.  He said he wore it to a wedding recently where there were a bunch of hoity-toity DC political types, and he got some compliments on his gorgeous timepiece!

Check out M Mirage branded watch rolls on Amazon.  I've found them to be very nice.

This really chaps my hide!  Tag is definitely stealing Seiko's IP here!  Doesn't Seiko own the patent on misaligned chapter rings and bezels???  Seiko should sue!

HotWatchChick69 commented on How not to wear a watch (basically just an excuse to share some cool photos) ·

I wear mine on the outside of my dive suit all the time...  especially when I'm washing the car or doing the dishes.
