Those yellow gold markers look low-rent.

Good point and well said. I'm surprised the number of manufacturers who use them with a similar effect.

I have a stainless watch with rose gold numerals that is very nice.

Most of the time, they remind me of those cheap luxe-wannabe watches with vaguely European names.

For those of you with more than 1 automatic watches, how do you keep them wound? Do you use a watch winder?

I wind them whenever I wear them

I had an Orbita 6 watch winder and sold it. Wasn't worth it in my opinion.

Most automatic watches you can also wind manually

I take it out of the box, give it a few shakes and set it. Of course easier if it's non-complicated, non-screwdown crown & quickset - but it's a minute at most. That's OK with me.

Yeah, one of my watches has a moonphase, day and date so setting it every time is not an option. Right now I just manually wind it every morning.

zjpj83, why wasn't it worth it? what's your reason for getting rid of it?

I'm considering getting a watch winder but I've heard it could be bad for watches. How, I don't know.

There you have the reason for me not buying a triple calendar moonphase...

...in other words, I understand you.

It was several thousand dollars, and I found most of my watches (other than the moonphase) easy enough to reset if they ever stopped. Plus I could always manually wind them anyway. Then I sold my watch with moonphase and it because a no brainer. If I had multiple perpetual calendars or something, my thinking may be different, but it just wasn't necessary for my current collection.

Me too. Used to wear them in rotation, too, but I've been too lazy to open the watch box every morning.

The prize for cheapest automatic has to go to me. I just ebayed this, I believe, 1975 Timex Automatic.





Yea, not much by the thread's standards, but it's nice, plus the seller just serviced it. Not a bad deal for $22.
