Once it gets to a point where smart watches can save you money, everybody will have one. Thats how it was with smartphones. They cost almost the same but they can help you get a job, an apartment, find cheaper gas, keep appointments etc.

agreed. apple watch to me with only a day charge and kinda thick for such a small watch, doesn't do it for me. others have had one or more issues you mention.

the samsung gear s3 is the first promising one to me... 4 days charge, round great looking display, lots of function, doesn't need cell phone...

nice video review... also shows standalone functions

What brand watch winders do you guys have? I am in the market for one. I currently have 3 mechanical (automatic) watches sitting in a 12 slot watch case which houses 7 other battery/solar powered watches. I am looking to collect more mechanical watches in the future (about 1-2 a year) and do not want to quickly out grow the winder as they are quite pricey... perhaps a hybrid winder/non winder watch case is what is good for me?

The first automatic watch I bought right after my undergrad. I still wear it when I know it might get knocked around. A Seiko SNZJ of some model number.

This is the only picture I have of my first edition Seinhart Ocean 2 Premium. I really like the decorated Soprod movement.

I like Speedmasters, but not the Speedy pro, so I found one of the "Weird" Japanese models. I am looking to get rid of this thing for one of the weird Omega Dynamic Chronos.

A cheap Ticino Pilot Chrono that I wore almost everyday for grad school. I love this watch.

On the wrist today is an Alpina 130 Heritage Pilot Chrono. I want to sell this watch, but it reminds my Fiance of me, so she said I have to keep it.


I have had a couple more that I sold without taking pictures. Stuff like Squale, Helson, Stowa, and some vintage pieces. I have maybe 14 more months until I have an allowance for the next piece I want so it is going to be a long time of thinking what to get.

I had a single off brand unit that had two fixed settings, ~400 turns/day either clockwise or counter. It broke after 2 years and then I just began manually winding the watches we have here. If the watches are simple day-date then it isn't hard to manually adjust for the times you want to wear them. The one aspect to that is that if you have a screw down crown, this constant interaction can cause additional wear on the case tube. Interpret that as wear or stripping the threads. Those whom I know like Orbita, check their sale page for deals. The Brookestone versions are mentioned often. You may be replacing lower tier winders every couple years though.
