Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Nice looking there. People seem to love horween leathers.

I have been professionally making custom watch straps for over 6 years now. It is quite the hobby.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Does the paperwork numbers coincide with the watches numbers and details?

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

I would guess that you could contact Graham watches about the numbering system.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Ok, so I did some more researching. Is your Graham model# 563? Because as far as I can tell, they individually number Graham's.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Just a quick question...

Does that graham model come with a silver release trigger? All of the panda dial Graham's I have seen come with a black/pvd trigger release.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

The homage watches are very good quality. They use pretty much the same materials and even movements as the originals.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

I wanted to add, that you will also want to pad the partitions of the box. The pillows alone won't be good rubbing against each other.. Bobby has a good idea, but at 16-20 that's a very large box....

There are a couple of them on ebay. Here is one: http://cgi.ebay.com/White-Watch-Winder-Pillow-Narrow-/290419780172?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item439e5e2a4c

I think he may mean a watchholder as opposed to the case itself.

My main features in the one I went for was:

Big enough to hold the watch without hitting the glass. If you like big watches...

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

If you really need one, then don't skimp on the cost for a nice one. The cheaper ones on the bay will work, but are usually loud, and do fail from time to time.

May I ask why you "need" one?

That must be the newest model of Carrera. I have never seen one look like that. Very nice.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

There are a TON of aftermarket selections for bracelet and leather straps for watches. NEVER count out a watch based on it's strap. There is also a really nice custom market which can make the...

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

DO NOT use super glue. The fumes have been known to gum up the movements of watches and cause them not to run.

The better option is a contact cement that does not have those fumes. Or better yet,...

DO NOT use these cloths unless you know what you are doing. This is not your normal polising cloth and can make parts too shiny. If you have brushed links or parts of links, using cape cod will...

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Those are closer to what wolfgang may be looking for. However those aren't true chronographs.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Spinning chrono disks are on very few watches. And those watches are extremely expensive.

The cheapest one I can find is the Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Chronograph Calibre Mens Watch.

I believe...

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Thrak is right on here. You don't really NEED one. To me they are a luxury, which I can do without especially given the cost of a decent one, I can have another watch (or two).

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

That would be either a skeleton or tourbillion type watch. Search for both items and see what comes up. Most likely what you are looking for is a chronograph skeleton watch.

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Thank you, but that's not the exact one in your watch. What I really want to see is the gold weight on the opposite end of the dagger. Yours seems to be countersunk. If that is the case, that is the...

Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Congrats on the new watch. That movement looks very odd. Can you get a clearer macro of it?
