just got this back (http://imgur.com/a/UUW2Q) from being serviced by Rick Littlefield of piecesoftime.net. I couldn't be happier with it. There was a big dent on the clasp, hence the photo of the re-finished clasp. 1968 GMT Master.

not my picture, i have one of the 2nd to the left watch. had it since high school. won't let go of that one either.


haven't bought a watch since these guys. been thinking of changing it up and getting a g-shock so i don't mind if it gets scuffed up and all that.

also had a cartier bracelet, that one got stolen.

Nothing. Never got into fancy watches and wore cheap ones. At one point invested $500 in a Swiss chronometer which I thought was plenty for a watch, the chrono stopped a few days after the warranty expired, the repair was supposed to be more than the buying price and I just had enough. Now I don't wear any watch.

That sucks. Rolex wanted $1200 to even look at my GMT (this was my Dad's, and I have all the papers and packaging for it), and I doubt they even would have worked on it, due to age. Funny to walk around with this much money on my wrist, though. I bought a new Citizen Eco to wear while this was being worked on, and I plan on continuing to wear it most days...

now that I have my GMT Master back, I plan on getting a leather or cork strap for the Citizen. I also need to find my Seiko Kinetic, which is somewhere... Once I get my MBA, I hope to get myself a vintage Speedmaster, Paul Newman Daytona(or maybe an Explorer, if I can't find the PN Daytona at a decent price), or El Primero, as a congratulation gift, but I'll probably just buy knives. :)

Usually at least one purple rubber band(or up to 10) from an asparagus bunch if I'm working the line.
It just gets me in the zone.
But only then.
It starts to cut off my circulation, veins a' poppin', and it irritates my carpal tunnel.



I gave up watches a long time ago. It's against Health Code now, and all my nice ones just got ruined working in a kitchen.

if ever you're in my country i can introduce you to a guy that fixes expensive watches for a living. he's trained internationally (switzerland, hongkong, malaysia, etc.) and does all kinds of expensive and rare watches. he has clients from all over that come to the country just to have watches fixed. there's this japanese dude that comes here just to bring over a ton of watches for him to fix, comes in twice a year and brings over a dozen watches to fix. he works for cartier here but works on other watches on the side.

he can get you a good deal on repairs. last year he went to a seminar in malaysia to be trained for certification for other brands of watches and he ended up teaching those dudes what to do. surgeon's hands don't even compare to him.

Citizen Eco Drive Blue Face Titanium 100 WR.The trouble with battery watches in the ocean is when it is changed no longer waterproof.Paid 200.00 for the Citizen Titanium over 10 yrs. ago.Surfed,Kayac,Swim I cannot believe this watch is still going strong.I figured the Solar proccessor has a life span I wonder how long this thing is going to last.Body & Band are Titanium so it is faily lite as well.Best watch I have ever owned.

how the frig do people wear watches in the kitchen? i wouldn't even wear a cheapo timex one it would drive me nuts. i do tend to wear the blue wide rubber bands from broccolini bunches though as it's fun to pull back and let go repeatedly. the sharp pain is satisfyingly stress relieving during service.

re: burns, i have so many they just look like birth marks. and as soon as one fully heals you get another right i the same $#@$#@%#@%@# spot!!

It cracks me up seeing kids these days w/o watches in the kitchen.I'm told it's not cool anymore and that cell phones are a much better means of tracking time. Hmmmm- reaching into my pocket multiple times a day (100x ish?) just to only tell time seems itiotic to me.
I've worn a watch to work for over 25 yrs and on the off day i forget to strap it on i feel utterly naked and lost. Ironicly the same feelng as forgetting my cell...

As for rocking the rubber bands- I'm sorry guys but once recces time ceases to be a part of our eagerly awaited shoolastic regimine,they gots to go. Extremely unsanitary and unsafe. (Unless you wash/rinse them regularly in which case by all means- rock the rubber around your wrist).
And yes,the same can be said for watches, but at least they tell time and date and I'm not always asking the guy next to me for this answer.

And as for the ubiquitous arm burns, try exhaling before you open/reach into the oven/PLACE protiens into the hot pan. There comes a time where you just say "seriously? That was f*ckin stupid"

Lots of Eco-Drive love! My daily each is an Eco-Drive that I've had for about 10 years. I'm at work, and this is my work watch. My wife bought it for me for Christmas, because she saw me eyeing it up:

It had been years since I wore a watch, not because I didn't miss doing so, but because I had trouble finding something that I liked, that I could afford, and that would hold up.
I just recently found a good deal on a Lum Tec Super Combat B2, and it's been well worth the wait. Very legible and simple dial, perfect size for my wrist, but lightweight thanks to Ti, simple hand-wind ETA movement (I actually enjoy winding it every day), fantastic build quality, and as the name company suggests: amazing lume.
It's also been my first introduction into Nato style straps and I'm hooked: most comfortable style of strap I've ever worn. It came with some really well made ballistic nylon ones that I use if it's going to get really wet and dirty, but I also just picked up a dressier shell cordovan nato by DaLuca and it feels sooo good.

non is right or wrong. however normally most wears the wristwatch on non-dominant arm, and why, well common sens. just less risk to scratch it etc.

but some watches is designed to be worn on the left arm, the winder on non digital watches is positioned for wearing on the left wrist.

I had an Eco Drive and loved it, then one day the stem pulled out when I was changing the time or date. Would have been just as cheap to buy as new one as have it repaired. Decided to go for something a little more girly:

http://c.shld.net/rpx/i/s/pi/mp/16772/410735607?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hudsonmayor.com%2Fi mages%2F41urpaHavPL.jpg&d=6d23453f6164f6d89be1776665c530afadb09a2d


Sorry that I did. The darn thing is hard to read without hashmarks for the "in between" hours, there's no second hand, and I never know what day it is without the calendar on my watch. And you can forget reading it in the dark. The only problem is that it keeps good time and keeps running, so I can't justify replacing it.

Dave that sounds like a plan. I have a knife in the works from Randy and when it is finished I will make a road trip to pick it up and stop in your area. This won't be until probably this time next year though but I will keep you informed.

Wear a Sea Dweller sometimes, but usually wear a g-shock. If im in the office i take off the Rolex and use it as a paperweight. I had a IWC Mark XII a couple of years ago and traded it in on a Breitling. I will probably pick up another one this year because I miss the simplicity and lack of name recognition.

my stainless Tudor looks just like Dream Burls. i love it. i bought it at the time because it was less expensive than the same stainless Rolex. same watch. i just took it in for a new face, and tune-up. cost me $500.

came back brand spanking new..and then i reached into my engine compartment and put the tiniest scuff on the face. should have done the crystal..damn!!

now i love it!! i rarely see Tudor here in the states. i think they quit selling them here.

I had my Rolex cleaned once (in 20 years) and was amazed at how much it cost. I think it was $500 also, but they did an amazing job. Even the bracelet looked like new. I don't wear it every day these days. Mostly when I go on vacation because it's built like a tank and I don't have to thing about it, even swimming.

(so she cant kill me). i think i want to sell it and buy 3 stainless ones for each of my siblings. matching ones for all of us kids.

my tudor rides in my gun safe. opening it is a pain. so i dont wear that either.

on my wrist is a $299 Casio Pathfinder. i friggen love this thing. i sent it in for a repair. i have had this thing in motor oil, deer guts, my compost pile...it lives a rough life. atomic time keeping, so it is syncd perfectly. i am very outdoorsy. last time i wore my tudor deer hunting, a deer heard the bracelet jingling and ran away.

while this casio was away for repair, i bought a $100 analog casio from costco...the inexpensive watches get more play...i wore that thing on a 10-day backpack trip. it was awesome.

You can get watch storage units/boxes for self winding watches that move so they keep the watches running. Not all that expensive and less $$$ than repairs.

That's unfortunate however they do make battery operated models or better yet just schedule the watch for all perils on your homeowners for about $20 a year and stop worrying about it. I don't have any more difficulty setting the time on a Datejust than any other Rolex. I've had one stop a few times. Just shake it or wind it manually and then you are back on track.

When I turned 30 my parents wanted to give me some nice present and they came up with an idea of good quality watch and knowing how picky I am on my stuff, they gave me some money and so I had not other way round than look at high quality watches. I got quickly surprised how much these lovely buggers cost :) After quite some search Oris Chronoris caught my eye and that is what I got. Today - 5 years later - I still wore it daily (with exception when doing sport or some harder manual work). Yes - Seamester would be lovely, but I would not be able to justify 4x the already high price I payed for the Chronoris.

P.S. Those cool leather gloves are as close as I ever got to actually buying a motorbike (the 'small' HD Sportster would be my choice). I still have the gloves ... and the dream :)

Nice Luminox.

I don't wear my watches nearly often enough. When I have the opportunity, I go for the Omega Seamaster. White dial over stainless with 18K bezel. I also enjoy a Bulova Precisionist and Hamilton Jazzmaster.

When I count how many "shigs" are in my watch box, I wonder if I shouldn't have stopped after the first though.

I've gone through many watches, had my grail watch at one point, a Sinn 656, but needed funds so I sold that off, loved that watch.

The nearest that I have come to the look is this Invicta 16330 diver watch, it keeps excellent time, has incredible lumen and is really inexpensive. I had replaced the metal band with a nice padded leather one from DeBeers and also added a deployant clasp as well, so total $ of band and clasp about doubled the price I paid for the watch, but it's worth it for me.

The lumen, if I hit it with a flashlight before bed, will last all night, it won't be as bright as this, but it will be readable hours later.

I deplore watches that large. The 42mm Hamilton Pilot Daydate is nice, however.

Is 46mm really that big? Seems like 42 is pretty normal to most. Do those 4mm really make the switch from perfectly good to gaudy ridiculousness?

I agree that some have gotten a bit nuts, but those seem to be like 55mm fashion watches (Nixon).

I'm a big guy and I have ~8 inch wrists (varies a little with temperature). That Speedy is 42mm, and is a nice size. Assuming that we're talking about round watches, a 42mm watch has about 83% of the square area of a 46mm watch. That's not including lugs, crown, etc. To put it into perspective, a person who is five feet 8 inches tall is 83% as tall as somebody who is seven feet tall. A 46mm watch is a lot bigger than a 42mm watch.

I might just be weird. Lots of people seem fine with watches that large. I have been wearing a 40mm Rolex since I was 25 years old (through no effort of mine: it was my patrimony after my father offed himself), and before that I was wearing a 38mm Seiko Kinetic. The 38mm-42mm range seems about right to me, because of it. My Datejust, at 36mm, seemed a little small at first, but then I saw how well it slipped under a shirt cuff. My 42mm Hamilton Jazzmaster seems a bit large, but it's also a thick watch due to the Valjoux 7750 movement (which is the same reason why my Fortis Cosmonaut, while only 38mm, is a chunky watch, as it has the same movement). Anyway, I would try before buying, with regards to big watches.

I really do think you should look at the Pilot Khaki Day Date that I linked to. If I had an open spot in a watch winder (and if my wife wouldn't kill me if I bought another watch), I'd pick one up, myself. Maybe in a couple months. ;)

I had a 45.5 planet ocean and it just wasn't me. It was a fine price and I felt compelled to get something before heading home for the holidays. Ok I do have a 6" wrist but even if I was a LOT bigger the thing was simply out of line IMO. I thought it couldnt be that much bigger than 42mm, too, you know. I was wrong.

I too do the 40mm thing now and think it's perfect for just about everyone. A little bigger, sure. Smaller? sure. But 45mm just doesnt look right unless youre Shaq IMO.

When in comes to size of a watch it often comes to me that the big ones just use the size to allow the designer more play and make the watch to stand out more so you can make 'a message'. Sure - there are people with large wrists who may enjoy waring large watches, but most of us look strange with 45mm+ on our wrist. For me (arguably a guy with girly hands) the size was (OK, after price) the main limiting factor when choosing the watch.

An obvious exception are watches for divers.

My trusty and faithful circa 1991 quartz Tag Heuer finally gave up the ghost a few years ago:
26452

I happened to be somewhat flush at the time so I replaced it with a similar but very brightly polished Breitling Chrono Cockpit:
26451

and, still feeling flush (cuz I stopped buying knives and stones), a Navitimer followed soon thereafter:
26450

I think the Tag was spec'ed at 32mm, the Cockpit 38mm and the Navi 43mm. People talk about how a watch can 'wear' larger or smaller than its nominal face diameter would indicate and these two B'lings illustrate why: the face of the Cockpit is 38mm but the outer bezel puts the overall diameter of the watch very close to the Navi's.

The B'lings are considerably heavier than the Tag which took longer to get used to than the increase in size.

Another size factor to consider: my eyes are so bad now that I can't read anything on the damn B'ling dial faces without reading glasses. The Navi's circular slide rule doesn't get much use anymore but I can make out the hands and hour markers so it's at least still functional as time-telling device. :wink:

I like Seiko Automatics a lot.

I bought a Seiko Cocktail Time for my B-I-L's birthday, which is a little ways in the future (found a really good deal on it brand new, straight from Tokyo), and the few times I've taken it out of its package and looked at it, I've wanted to keep it.

You can also see the corrosion on one of the dials that suggests that the watch was wet, at some point: I elected not to have that addressed, as it would require either removing material from the dial or replacing the dial) and had a nice Italian made vulcanized rubber strap put on it. I got it for cheap, and originally thought about selling it to fund something else, but it's grown on me. Even when on snug, as it is in the photo, it's very comfortable, as the vulcanized rubber has a bit of give. Maybe I'll wear this for a while before I decide to replace it. Right now, it balances out my Fortis Cosmonaut on a clockwise rotor in my watch-winder.

The bracelet that came with it, which had a deployment strap, didn't have a fine enough adjustment to fit me, and I can't wear leather bands due to allergies, so I had minimal choices.

Off topic- but are you left handed? Or do you adhere to the non dominant hand wear? On the same topic, how many of you guys wear your gear face down? A buddy of mine years ago insisted it was the 'gentlemanly' manner of wearing a wrist based timepiece. I tried that style for awhile, and really didn't care for it. Just felt weird having the extra mass on the inside of my wrist. Tried the non- dominant hand wear as well, and my natural inclinations wouldn't allow it.

EdipisReks
03-02-2015, 01:06 AM
No, I'm super right handed. I wear a watch on my non-dominant hand. I only wear watches face up. I have some watch acquaintances who are older, mid 60s to mid 80s, and almost to a man, they wear watches face down. I find it weird, and I almost never find a picture of a watch worn earlier than 1935 or later than 1955 that shows a face being worn on the inside of the wrist. For whatever reason, I think it's a generation thing. Most of the watches I own have screw down crowns, so wearing on either wrist isn't a big deal, as you have to take the watch off to set the time, regardless. This Hamilton is an exception, as it's not screw down, but I still prefer to take the watch off to set the time.

The face down thing was something I'd entirely forgotten, until I watched an episode of the excellent Aussie tv series 'Rake'. There's a scene where the camera zooms in on him checking his watch, and it's worn face down. Which I hadn't noticed till then. But I couldn't stop noticing it after...

Off topic- but are you left handed? Or do you adhere to the non dominant hand wear? On the same topic, how many of you guys wear your gear face down? A buddy of mine years ago insisted it was the 'gentlemanly' manner of wearing a wrist based timepiece. I tried that style for awhile, and really didn't care for it. Just felt weird having the extra mass on the inside of my wrist. Tried the non- dominant hand wear as well, and my natural inclinations wouldn't allow it.

Non-dominant, face-down. I got the face-down thing from my father. He may have gotten it from his father.

I've tried switching to face up multiple times but it feels wrong. Sort of like brushing teeth with the other hand: it can be made to work but why bother?

Too, think about this: you're holding a beer in your watch hand and someone asks the time. If you wear face-up, you need to pronate your forearm to read the time and might spill beer on yourself. If you wear face-down, then you supinate to read time so any spillage hits the person next to you. :D

Forgive me if this topic has been discussed before but I'm curious what other pro cooks wear for a watch in the kitchen. Mostly I'm curious why you wear it, beyond just aesthetics what makes it particularly suited to the harsh conditions and demands of a working kitchen.
Currently I'm wearing an Aristo automatic pilot watch on a "shark" metal bracelet. It's easy to read easy to clean and pretty durable. I also like that it has the minutes around the dial which helps me when expediting. Also date display is a must when writing labels all day.

I always wore my Rolex 16600 in the kitchen. It can take any beating I can give it, and more. I love the aesthetics of it and it will last for my lifetime plus some. I got some other stuff that I can wear for formal occasions, but by far the watch I wear the most is my trusty 16600.

It had been years since I wore a watch, not because I didn't miss doing so, but because I had trouble finding something that I liked, that I could afford, and that would hold up.
I just recently found a good deal on a Lum Tec Super Combat B2, and it's been well worth the wait. Very legible and simple dial, perfect size for my wrist, but lightweight thanks to Ti, simple hand-wind ETA movement (I actually enjoy winding it every day), fantastic build quality, and as the name company suggests: amazing lume.
It's also been my first introduction into Nato style straps and I'm hooked: most comfortable style of strap I've ever worn. It came with some really well made ballistic nylon ones that I use if it's going to get really wet and dirty, but I also just picked up a dressier shell cordovan nato by DaLuca and it feels sooo good.

Justin0505 I have a similar model, the B3 with carbon face, Lumtec's are such an underrated watch. This and my Bathy's are my go to daily beaters. Love your strap, where did you pick it up?

The new apple watch would look great on my wrist. Unfortunately, it is bare.

my new daily wearer. Still not sure on the bracelet for everyday, I'm looking for a good deployment rubber strap at the moment.
