I agree with that, as long as you find a true watch maker! I have found that most servicing centers send your watch off to one of these few gents who are still around (living)! And of coarse it all depends on what type of service is needed!

Poor man's watch thread - Page 179post #2671 of 62292/15/13 at 1:26ampost #2672 of 62292/15/13 at 9:46amQuote:I almost ordered the Steinhart Blue Snowflake because I would REALLY like a blue snow flake but I had some concerns about the quality. I also do not like the name Steinhart. They need a better name to sell more IMHO.
The Squale looks better from what I can see and I like the dials.post #2673 of 62292/15/13 at 9:54amye i like that snowflake too, but I've decided to stay away from Steinhart. I didn't have a bad experience with them, but their QC is inconsistent. Also, I am not a fan of the case/lug shape on the Steinhart. I actually don't mind the name, but detest the logo. Looks like a pineapple. The Squale shark and Von Buren logo are far more interesting. I also like the white border around the date wheel. I plan on eventually removing the cyclops as well.post #2674 of 62292/15/13 at 11:46ampost #2675 of 62292/16/13 at 6:02amQuote:Originally Posted by Ahab

The hands look like one of the Longines dive watches!post #2676 of 62292/16/13 at 6:11ampost #2677 of 62292/16/13 at 6:19amQuote:Originally Posted by WhoKnewI
If I shatter the sapphire on my squale, I am sure i can at the very least find an aftermarket acrylic that will fit. As far as I know, a lot of boutique divers also have standard gauge crown tubes and again an aftermarket can be sourced (MKII has screwed in crown tubes which can be problematic, or at the very least costly, to replace if MkII disappears). Having said that, I am very careful not to strip the threads on any of my crown tubes and haven't had an issues. With regard to the caseback, I'm not sure, but considering my watch will only be opened once every 5-7 years, I'm not too worried.
About those crown threads: In the past I wasnt as careful and it did CO$T me! If the WR is not a big factor for you then I would definatley stay away from screw in crown models! I know there are some models around with 100m WR without the scerw in feature and I believe thats adequate!post #2678 of 62292/16/13 at 6:39ampost #2679 of 62292/16/13 at 2:32pmpost #2680 of 62292/16/13 at 9:54pm
I really like that watch.I can't think of anything similar that would be better in that price range. I guess it depends on your style and what you're choosing the watch for.post #2681 of 62292/16/13 at 11:42pmpost #2682 of 62292/16/13 at 11:43pmQuote:Originally Posted by ant702

the key is to press the crown in, and rotate backwards until you hear/feel a click. that is when the threads align, and then you're good to go.post #2683 of 62292/17/13 at 2:41ampost #2684 of 62292/17/13 at 12:14pm
Thanks to posts like this my interest in getting one of these Pan homages/marina militare have cropped up again. For less than $100 they look pretty decent. I pretty much want to get one really close to this model. There's two similar ones, ones with a pretty standard looking crown, and one with that crown cover that looks like it has a switch?? It's basically just a crown-lock, correct? I've never had a watch with something like that, could someone give an opinion on a function like that, and would it be worth going for for fun or would it be better to just go for the standard crown?post #2685 of 62292/17/13 at 9:46pmQuote:
You right it does look pretty classic! Personally, I stopped buying quartz analog and went straight to digital! But if you like it and its within your budget, why not
