Yeah, my Rolex is that way, but my Seiko diver isn't. But if it has to be hand-wound, then that would mean that the movement doesn't have the self-winding feature that makes it an auto--it would just be a mechanical watch.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Go take a look for yourself. Everyone has different tastes. A lot of people like Philip Stein watches, I think they look like epic ****. Same with the Omega Ploprof.

Side note, the Movado Museum was buy one - get one free at the AD in Cozumel. I was tempted, but abstained.

Yeah, I realized that later on and can't chalk that up to anything other than not paying any attention to what I was doing.

May be looking for a watch winder for my iwc. Do I really need one of these? I just don't wear mine nearly enough so I'm a little concerned about the lubricants all pooling up

It's a watch not a car. The only real redeeming feature for a watch winder is if you have a movement which has some complicated features like a perpetual calendar then you'd probably want to keep that running as they can be a PITA to set. Or if you want to be able to grab a watch without having to muck around setting the date/time. (all of 30secs).

Not to mention the extra wear on the watch for no real purpose except to save you 30secs setting the time.

Just bought a Citizen Stiletto series watch with black ion plating. It isn't practical by any stretch of the word, (all black, no backlight or even a calendar) but it looks like pure unadulterated sex (unfortunately the pictures don't do it justice) and I'm extremely happy with the purchase.

It has a smaller face than usual and a very slim case, but a considerable weight which makes it feel very sturdy.

LOL. Come on people... no one is going to say it? I really didn't want to blow up this guy's spot but seriously... Half if not all of these watches are fake...

BR01-92 Heritage is a really really BAD FAKE on here. Look at that strap, it looks more suede than leather and does not have the heritage text. I have the AUTHENTIC piece. The BR01-94 Blue and Phantom? Also fakes. WHY THE **** WOULD A PHANTOM B&R HAVE A WHITE DATEWHEEL? PUHAHA

That AP (Rubens Barichello?) second to last row on the right, and that A.Lange next to it? FAKES.
That Ferrari Panerai, Daylight DLC, and the one that looks like a 112? FAKES
I will also bet my life savings that the last row are all fakes, especially the Hublot Maradona, IWC Top Gun, and Hublot Senna.

So...you're saying...that...some if not all...of these watches...are...fake?

I wasn't sure if that's what you were trying to get across.

I could only speak for the watches I am familiar with. If I was 100% certain all of them were fakes I would've just left it at that. I can't speak for the TAG or Omegas or the Mullers here. I don't know them well enough to discern real from fakes.
