I get the scratches off with Maguiar's "Scratch X" paste. Got it at Walmart. Works wonders on my vintage Rolex crystals.

Sorry no picture, I pawned it in Philly for $50.

Those are nice. I had one a while back and hated to sell it, but the guy had to have it.

I had an O&W V-7733 for a brief period:



I really liked the watch when I looked at it online. I sold it for a couple of reasons, but mainly because it was a bit small for my liking.

The O&Ws have a reputation for being a good value, and with that I can't disagree 100%, but they are a bare bones watch. Most of them are actually sold w/out bands, or with fairly cheap bands, depending, and they have no frills associated with them (i.e no nice box, papers, etc...) Also, the fit and finish is not the nestm but, again, what one would expect for the price. All in all this may not be important, but I honestly think you get what you pay for in this case; if you want an expesnsive mechanical watch, that is what you will get in all regards.

I assume you will be getting this from Howard Marx over at West_Coast_Time?

Nice. I've had a Spacematic for ~a year now and I really like the looks of and wearing the watch, but have had a few issues with it. First, the crown/stem came out and had to be sent in for warranty repair at the end of last year. Next, when I got the watch back, there appear to be some scratches on the case that were not there before, and there is also dust on the face/inside of the crystal that was not there before either.

I am in the process of trying to contact the warranty facility (not an easy task...) to see what they say about this.

That said, I have been looking for a chrono and have been leaning towards the Spacematic Chrono, which has the same mech. as yours. How does yours keep time? Overall impression, especially compared to other options (if possible?) Also, where did you get yours from?

Linzi,

I don't know just what type of guy's your into, but here's how we roll in the North Country. Snatch one of those Hundreds and hop a bus North.
