Re: Alpina date alignment - opinions sought

Watchmaxx responded saying it is aligned "to allow for 2 numbers", ignoring it is off to the left with 2 numbers as well.

Pretty disappointed by that response tbh. I don't mind debating warranties, repair costs etc., but that is disingenuous.

Re: Alpina date alignment - opinions sought

Yeah it's in that niggly bracket where the cost of the watch means repairing or returning internationally is disproportionately expensive. Finding a competent and reasonably priced watch-maker where I am might be a struggle. Also no response from Watchmaxx, which is disappointing. Shame because ever...

Re: Alpina date alignment - opinions sought

Just following up on this whilst I wait for watchmaxx to respond. I've pored over loads of pics of this watch online. It does appear that there is a tendency for the date wheel to be slightly off-centre to the left. Not always, but common enough to spot if one is looking for it. Mine appears to be p...

Re: Alpina date alignment - opinions sought

Yeah, I've sent them an email to see what they suggest. They are not an AD, but have a warranty and state they will carry out repairs. Pretty standard, but sending it back, whether for return or repair, is going to be a costly exercise and I won't get that money back. I'd rather get it repaired at m...

Alpina date alignment - opinions sought

Hi, gang, I've just - literally - taken delivery of an Alpina Alpiner Quartz from Watchmaxx and, right out of the box, the date window jumps out at me as being out of alignment. It was set to "2", but I've run through a few other dates and all appear to be shifted off to the left. What do you think?...

Re: 2020 New and Upcoming Releases!

If, like me, any of you missed the Kickstarter for the Reise Resolute, they've just released a couple of new colours on their site and also seem to have some of the grey and olive green in stock. USD 329 for Jan 2021 delivery. https://www.rzewatches.com/collections/frontpage Very tempted by these bu...

Re: PREORDER: Kickstarter: Rhodus Watches - Skull Diver

Is it me or has there been a recent uptick in watches with the reversed triangular indices?

I quite like the look, but they suddenly seem to be all over the place.

I rarely say this, but I wish they did a no-date version.

Re: New watch box and State of the Union

Cheers, fellas. I'm in Dubai, which is something of a shopper's paradise so you can usually get most things. The exception seems to be tools and DIY stuff, simply because not a lot of people do that here. (Houses are mainly concrete and fairly new.) There are a couple of big DIY stores but most of t...

Re: New watch box and State of the Union

Eterna Kontiki Diver (black). It's next to the Eterna Kontiki Diver (bronze) and you'll also see a blue one in one of the drawers.

It's fair to say things got a bit silly in one of the Ashford sales events...

New watch box and State of the Union

I thought some of you might be interested in this. TL;DR: tracked down a discontinued tool box to use as a watch box and here are some pictures of the current collection. For a while now, I've been looking for a better way to store my watches. Previously, I had them in the safe, which is a bit of a ...
