    [–] I replaced my old rotting deck. IMeasure 2 points ago * (lasted edited 4 hours ago) in DIY

    I remember a thread way way back (well way back for reddit) where someone documented a deck build. Then professionals jumped in and pointed out how he fucked it up in almost every way imaginable.

    [–] [Identify] Can anyone tell if this is real or fake? Seeing if I should buy this off my uncle IMeasure 3 points ago in Watches

    This watch is obviously a fake but just pointing at the Cyclops is literally the worst way to spot a fake. I have come across plenty of original rolex watches fitted with shitty AM crystals.

    [–] [Omega] Requesting advice on buying a 45.5 Planet Ocean pre-owned IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    If they have a return policy you should be fine. My real concern is the size. That's a hefty size watch.

    [–] [identify] square quartz seamaster my grandfather handed down to me. Says 1320/366 on the strap, can't seem to find anything about it online IMeasure 4 points ago in Watches

    Late 1970s quartz omega. You normally have to remove the caseback to see what the exact model is, but if I had to guess the movement is possiblly a 1342. Just search omega 1342 on ebay to find similar watches.

    [–] [Identify] Rolex Submariner 16610 - fake or real? IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    Rolex Kermit case with a Rolex Hulk dial. If I was a betting man I would say fake, but others here are more knowledgeable than me...

    Plenty of people are going to tell you what you need to know. In short you should get it serviced, but not by Rolex. My plane is literally taking off so I can't type any more!....

    [–] [Seiko] Can any seiko geeks give some input before i pull the trigger on a Bell-Matic? IMeasure 2 points ago in Watches

    I would want to see a receipt of the service. I service these for fun and they are way more complicated than a regular 3 handed watch. So getting it serviced could be difficult and expensive. That said the 4006 movement is one of the best vintage movements in any seiko. I love them!

    I reeeealy hate unpopular opinion threads.

    [–] [Question]: Stripped watch tube and crown repair IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    I would start by setting up an account at and posting your question in the vintage section. Make sure you include photos of the watch and the movement if possible to help them identify the watch and a potential repair.

    Fantastic! Did the watchmaker give you any details regarding what model movement is inside this watch. I have access to a number of the parts suppliers and you would be surprised what comes up on ebay.

    Even better become a member of

    Then post all the pictures in the vintage rolex discussion section and ask for any information regarding the watch and how you would go about restoring the movement.



    [–] [Question] Help with Misaligned Day Function on SW-500/ETA 7750 IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    If I had to guess there is no simple fix and you will need a watchmaker to look what's going on with the day-date mechanism.

    I can hear Rolex watch counterfeiters the world over collectively sobbing because you, yes you, have failed to empart the knowledge that would allow them to make a better fake 1950s Rolex.

    [–] [Identify] My Fathers Rolex IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    I'm not lashing out, I'm just stating the obvious. This is a place for constructive criticism. Just starting that something is fake without giving a reason is not going to cut it here. 'because it looks fake' might be appropriate for a $50 knock off Rolex Sub but this is definitely not that type of watch.

    [–] [Identify] My Fathers Rolex IMeasure 0 points ago in Watches

    I Should have asked. There should be a 4 digit number engraved between the top lugs on the case. You might have to remove the band to see the number.

    [–] [Identify] My Fathers Rolex IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    So you actually have no idea what you are talking about.

    [–] [Identify] My Fathers Rolex IMeasure 4 points ago in Watches

    Also if this is the real thing Do NOT send it to Rolex to restore. They will likely replace the hands and polish the case. You need to find someone that specialises in Rolex restorations. It will need a movement service (might need some new parts) , crystal polish (or replacement), new original rolex Crown and Stem. A new slim quality leather band and you will be good to go. Avoid polishing the case.

    [–] [Identify] My Fathers Rolex IMeasure 5 points ago in Watches

    Could be a Rolex 5062 subseconds. 1950s. The dial looks right, the rolex logo is a bit off, but others here will know more. If the watch is solid gold Do NOT try and remove the caseback on your own or you might screw it up.

    [–] [HANDMADE] First attempt at a handmade watch IMeasure 26 points ago in Watches

    Looks good but the pedant in me thinks your title is misleading. I would describe it as hand assembled and not hand made. But cool non the less!

    [–] [Casio] Not you’re average G-Shock IMeasure 4 points ago in Watches

    Yeah the DW56xx series is an absolute classic design and is perfect for anyone that wants all the features of a G-shock without all the bulk. It's one of those 80s designs that are done right. If this floats your boat then I can recommend the Seiko 7548-7000 from the mid 80s. Amazing quartz diver that's loved by Seiko collectors...

    [–] [Casio] Not you’re average G-Shock IMeasure 12 points ago in Watches

    Sweet watch. Today I'm wearing my original DW5600C from the late 80s. Still looking good after 30 years!

    You need the mode and serial number printed on the back of the case.
