Watch of Today


mk3

Recommended Posts

Today it is a CWC G10 from 2016 that I got in  bits and without a dial. I had an older T lume dial that looks very nice. The old seconds hand was broken and the hour and minutes hands we also in rough shape and didn't sit especially well on the wheels. These are a fairly close replacement and look much nicer.

The watch of the day for me is my father-in-law's 1957 Bulova Sea King, not be confused with Seamasters of the same vintage lol. After he passed we had it serviced and it runs very well. 

It was given to my eldest son who wore it for awhile until he decided that 32mm was too small for his muscular early-20s shot-putter's "guns" (arms).

I keep it in the rotation on my wrist, patiently ticking away the seconds until he decides that is is cool again; maybe a few decades form now. Then it will return to him.

Today is my Seiko SRP777 model as a 6105 "Captain Willard" homage. Dial, hands, and coin-edge bezel. I don't wear this one during the winter because of the size and it doesn't fit under gloves very well. But I'm working form home today so is gets some wrist time.

Today is the Alsta Nautoscaph Superautomatic re-issue #36/1975. Jaws is one of those movies I can watch any time from any point and I still enjoy it. Peter Benchley was a customer at the computer store I used to work for in the early 80's. He had and Apple ///. Terrible computer but it looked cool. I really like the watch too.

That's an absolutely gorgeous watch and a great story. If I had a diver it would look like that.

The watch of today for today, a snowy Sunday late morning, when I am NOT conducting worship because of a COVID quarantine as we wait for future. test results for my 13 year old, Jake, is my CWC GS Sapphire. 

I started gravitating towards military watches and field watched in general. I was surprised that most were only 3 or 5atm water resistance and I want to be a able to swim with my watch and not worry. 

So while I still iek field watches, I wanted something a bit more "modern" and greater water resistance. Enter the GS Sapphire with the sapphire crystal, screw down crown, and 20atm resistance. Hard to go wrong in my book.

    • Welcome to the WRT forum.   
    • You want pallets   level    with escape teeth, in DD and DU positions. Cap stone limits axial play on fork arbour. Rgds    
    • If you look at the image of the pushbutton you found on eBay I don't see a C clip. It looks to me like it's an entire assembly that screws in. This of course is where it be nice to have access to Swatch group where you'd actually get a breakdown if the part actually does break down. The reality of the fantasy of I can replace my button with no skills or tools rapidly crashes and burns when you probably can't. I do see there's a gasket as a good sign because a lot of times when they screw in they use Loctite and then realistically would have to take the movement out of the case plus if you are doing a really proper job you would also do a dry Water pressure test to make sure the watch is still water resistant if it hasn't been serviced since 2015 probably all the gaskets are shot anyway. Which is why taking it to a Swatch group service center would be the best they have a infinite supply of parts and this is what they do all day long.
    • Yes the expectations of a properly shaped mainspring versus whatever you have. The unfortunate reality of inconsistencies with manufacturing of mainsprings. For instance currently with the American pocket watch mainsprings that I do modern Swiss replacements if they have a slight yellowish color to them I'm finding they all look worse than what you have now. In other words the quality the modern spring is totally sucks versus the old days well hopefully the old days as I have seen some really good spring From the past.  
    • Good to see you didn't need to break and take the stem out in pieces. Everything now cleans in solution of soap water    IN ULTRASONIC. Good luck.
