What features does a expensive winder have over a cheaper one?
18/04/2024 - 13:57
In that case the independents may not be able to service the new movements. The only thing I don't like about Rolex is they have a monopoly…

Thank you for the information, very insightful. Interesting on timeframe. Rolex have increased their suggested service timeframe to 10years…

Great info. Would independent watchmakers be able to access parts from Rolex? I've heard they have been restricting access to keep a…

When you say not good for the watch, would that mean when it is finally serviced, it needs parts to be replaced? Would the same parts need…

Good to know. And yes, any excuse to use the words rectal, rectum, anus, anal, butthole etc is a good enough reason.

I've always wondered when you should service a watch. My automatic is about 15 years old now. I wear it most days, so it only runs out of…

Why features would a more expensive one have? And what difference does a $10k+ watch make?
18/04/2024 - 09:52
I wouldn't bother with an winder. Probably has much hassle to put it in every time you take if off than to set the date even it runs out of…

For some reason I thought you were asking for the ones for food. I was going to recommend a Thermapen. I'm not sure the Infrared is…

True that depreciation is valuable. Still remember, you're losing money on depreciation. It's not free. All things being equal, an old…

I don't think property will double in the next 10 years. There's only so much the prices can go up based on current interest rates

pretty sure it's at least 3km/hr

You were probably doing 115. They take say 3% off plus another 3, for errors.

True. But why are you cracking it so often? I'm not so sure they are 'A+++ Quality'
