Re: Watch caseback remover

squishy ball, or some tape rolled in a ball (sticky side out) is very effective for screwbacks.
A small case knife or pry tool like the yellow one above is good for snap on casebacks.

Maybe get a little bit of gasket grease for when you put the caseback/gasket back in.

Re: Disabling Tapatalk

I actually never use tapatalk or browse from a mobile - I sit in front of a desktop almost everyday.

Re: Seiko MM300 - Bracelet or Strap?

Crafter blue for sure. I actually like how it uses the original clasp, as it kinda balances it out a bit.

Re: Solid Offering From Crafter Blue

^ I have found the scent to fade over time, and smells much much less than the vanilla Isofrane that I had before.
Iso used to give me a headache actually.

I may have to try one at some point.
I also loved my SBBN015 Tuna, but it was just a bit too big, so I found I wasn't wearing it that much.

A cheap(er) alternative to this Breitling Chrono (which does look very nice) is the new Hamilton Intra-Matic.
That's the one I'm waiting to see.
Saw this on facebook today..

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

Fitment take 2: I think I can see how this works now, or at least speculate. The bottom of the top white spacer fits over the "factory" grey spacer like a shroud. It then narrows to fit closer to the movement. There is a bump on the side of the spacer that fits in a groove of the case to locate the ...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

To answer a few questions: My caseback does not state bph. Yes the movement has the grey Seiko spacer attached, then the white one is just placed on top. It just sort of fitted in the gap, and came out easily. The white spacer does not look custom made, it has a bunch of slots and notches that don't...

Oh I agree for the most part. I generally dislike most micros for this kind of reason, but have dabbled a couple of times in the <$500 price range and enjoyed what I have got. I think I paid less than $500 for this watch, and that is the level of expectation I have for it, just like an equivalent Se...

Re: Wrong Movements Installed in Unimatic U1?

I think an improved spacer is the easier way to solve the problem. As per the Dagaz video, the 9015 mvmt fits very nicely, but then I would have to deal with dial/hands/crownstem not fitting. This has now turned into a practical exercise for me, rather than theory, so if anyone has experience or ide...

It sucks, because I really like it.

It is a very sought after model (I regularly get asked if I want to sell it), but I would actually feel like an asshole trying to sell it at this point.

The plastic spacer seem like a cheap solution to an obvious production issue. Having said that, Unimatic have now produced a few thousand watches.
