Omega Dynamic Setting Question

June 30, 2006 . by John Biggs

Just picked up this NOS Omega Dynamic… looks real, works well. I’m trying to set the day-date. Does anyone know how to do it? I pulled the crown out to a “third” position, which just spins. Not sure if I’m missing something? UPDATE – So you actually pull the crown out all the way to…

Bathy’s Automatics Are GO!

June 29, 2006 . by John Biggs

Got a note from John over at Bathyswatch.com. Looks like the Bathy’s Autos are a go. NB: They are only making 25 each of each dial color – black and silver – and each permutations of the case colors (silver, black, and UV). It will have a date window—not big date—and run the ETA 2824-2….

So I put a Seamaster Chrono in for some repair with the Swatch Group. Called once in April… “Oh, it’ll be ready in a week. Call back.” Ok. Cool. Call again: June 29th, baby, but don’t worry, we’ve got the parts! Then I call today and they tell me July 19. Seriously. I’m all for…



Exclusive Linde Werdelin Watch Hands-On

June 26, 2006 . by John Biggs

Got a chance to fondle the Linde Werdelin Biformeter and I have a much better idea of what’s up now. Essentially, this is a really fancy watch with a strange attachment that covers the mechanical part and adds a number of digital functions. The wristwatch itself costs about $4,000 for a steel model and the…
