Always a good idea to look up reviews for the shops/service centers these days. As mentioned, they're not all equal.
You remember the Big Bambu paper that came with the Cheech n Chong vinyl album?
Maybe it was Santa... Took one look and then didn't even bother leaving you any prezies! #intervensiontime
I still have that ALBUM complete with paper!!
I have a really cool mechanical watch, a Muhle Glasshutte SAR Rescue Timer, but all I ever wear is a Casio. /shrug
I wore it for a year as a daily driver before getting it CLA'd and it kept really good time in that period. It was just so sad that it maintained extremely good time pre-CLA compared to post-CLA.
At this point, I'm wearing a Grand Seiko with Spring Drive these days that's keeping time within 2s/month so I'm not very motivated to send the Longine in. Maybe when I'm done with buying CPKs... then maybe I'll have the budget then. So basically never lol
Sold the Seadweller over a decade ago. Still have an SMP and Omega GMT, but those only ever get worn for formal attire these days. After decades, it's back to a G-Shock (Rangeman) again, lol.
How is your Grand Seiko? I went in their shop here in NYC once and they were beautiful!
I still need to get my hands on a G-Shock but I'm pretty happy with my Garmin Fenix 6X Sapphire for my outdoor pursuits
I love the Rangeman. Mine is a protrek prw-30.
I have the Snowflake and am beyond impressed with it. Not to knock on Rolex but my colleagues and I compared it side-by-side with their Day-Date, Explorer, Subs, Daytona, and a Tudor Pelagos and we all agreed that the the finishing/details on the Snowflake was noticeably nicer. My example also keeps time well beyond GS's spec of 15s/month (mine is keeping time @ roughly 2s/month) and the sweeping seconds hand is so nice and buttery smooth.
I don't know if I can go back to pure mechanical watches unless it's a really high beat. I have a 28,800BPH watch and it looks so choppy next to the Spring Drive.
2 seconds a month is phenomenal
My Mido is running over a minute slow right now. This upsets Mark's OCD. I think a slow watch causes him physical pain.
Yeah it's generally accepted that running fast is better than slow haha
My watch will be running 1 minute slow. His will be running 4 minutes fast. Objectively mine is keeping better time, but not so according to the man with the Rolex...
Although I suppose it could also be argued that the man with a Rolex is keeping better time than the man with a Swatch, even if the Rolex isn't even running. Hell, at least now it's right twice a day. That's better than it was.
His sea dweller stopped at 6:20 a.m. this morning. I wish I would have thought to send him a text at 6:19 tonight, and said "hey man look at your watch! It's telling time again!"
I was wondering if anyone would mention grand seiko. The snowflake is on my list but I fear my wrist is not substantial enough to pull it off. The Grand Seiko SBGY003 has really caught my eye, though.
That Deep Blue has been running fast since I got it, just cracked it open and bumped the adjustment a smidge...all this watch talk had me feeling frisky
