you don't need to spend big bucks on it. Get a watch tool kit from amazon for $10-$20

Enjoy the Rolex...only get worst from here. Im looking to get an AP Jumbo like ///A. Still saving up for one

Hedges,

Congrats on the new purchase. It looks absolutely gorgeous. I can only imagine how difficult the wait must be! Be sure to post up some wrist shots once you get it.

what are some watches that have quartz movement with sweeping second hand?
not sure i want two automatic watches but don't want a normal quartz either
is there a specific term for a sweeping second hand quartz movement?

If you could, cancel that order and get this one:

https://www.wolfdesigns.com/watch-wi...cessory-winder

They have it for $150 until the 21st. Get 2 and you're at the same price, but better quality / support.

Cool
But... why are they so ugly?
I do not like most of bulova's selection

Seiko spring drive also has a smooth sweeping second hand?

I think it was Glockman who said it was massive and took it back. I went to check one out and it was insane!

Nevermind
Seiko spring drives are expensive

I might just go with a cheap automatic instead
