Is there a more popular brand for his and her watches than Rolex? I think not.

Well hers in upside down, I guess the repair center can help with that smile.gif

Looking good! Not sure how that's gun related though.

This past Sunday Mrs. Dino and I went with some friends for a day of Rolex, Porsches, polo and a picnic.  Overall, a fun day.  We had never seen a polo match before, so it was an interesting experience and the horses were really beautiful.  Please excuse the bad camera phone photo, but the lighting that day made it tough to get good pix.

Hooked and already making a list of grail items to start building my collection smile.gif

D-oh, not even a month into owning the watch and I smacked it on a chair and bent the bottom chronograph lug. frown.gif

The bottom lug controls the reset for the chronograph. It still works when I push it, but I have to push it quite hard for the bottom dial (hours) to reset, the top dial (minutes) resets with minimal pressure comparatively.

But at the end of the day, it is mis-aligned and I don't want to risk further damage but pushing it in. I don't think this should be such a complex fix? Do I take it to any jeweller, or does it need to be an authorized Junghans dealer? I tried contacting Junghans but they are slow to reply.

Will I need to mail it in somewhere? How costly will this be?

Yup, it sucks pretty bad when that happens.

It's a very good sign that the watch is still running well, though. I wouldn't worry too much about having damaged the movement by operating the chronograph; the actuator on a 7750 is simply a large flat surface that isn't affected by misalignment of the pusher. It should be an easy and not-too-expensive repair as long as the case threads aren't damaged.

I'd recommend to take it to a local watchmaker to check whether it's simply a bent pusher assembly that needs replacing. If so, ask Junghans if they'll send a new pusher to you or to the watchmaker. In my experience, German companies — at least those that aren't owned by one of the big three congolomerates — tend to be very reasonable about supplying parts. With any luck, a fresh part and a pressure test will leave your watch as good as new.

Cool watch, by the way. Those Max Bill designs are great!

Guys, how do u feel about the 36mm A.Lange 1? One just came out at the pre-own market. Super sexy but this miniature 36mm version any pros or cons? I know its still the same movement. Its in platinum btw..

Is your only concern the size? 

 

I realise that it's subjective and that watches larger (sometimes considerably larger) than 40mm are very popular right now, but I think that 36mm is a great size for a wristwatch unless you've got large wrists. I wear a 36mm Omega every day and it looks fine, in my opinion. 

post #45823 of 48312
If it looks right on your wrist then do it. I have 7.25" wrist and wear 35mm to 42mm and up quite happily, it's all about how the case, strap and style work for you.

I like the Lange 1 at 38.5mm I think.
post #45824 of 48312
My concern is not abt the size per say but the lange 1 itself. Would it be "trying too hard to own a lange 1" at 36mm? Is the 36mm made specifically for the ladies? what would your first impression be if u saw a guy wearing a 36mm lange 1 rather than the org 38mm? Having said so, I've yet to head down and try it on. Will get pictures and then seek ur opinions. It's aka the mini darth lange 1.

I don't have an answer to your question as I don't have experience with said watch, but might I add that the rate at which you acquire new (I include used in there, as well) timepieces is impressive! I am a little bit envious, I'm afraid!

 

For what it's worth, a lot of watches of 36-38mm range fits well on most guys, except the occasional 7¾"+ wrist freak. I'm not afraid someone would give a second thought about you wearing a 36mm watch.
