I'm pretty sure I've never given any clock related tips, I'm a total analphabet when it comes to watches. I only own 3 watches, and only really wear one of them regularly, it's a pretty basic old Omega (vintage from the 40s). I do however have some real watch geek friends who I turn to whenever I need to get a watch serviced.
I'm considering getting a new watch next year. Most likely an Omega Speedmaster, for no other reason than liking the design.
