GP make their own movements. They are a certainly a less popular brand, which is a euphemism for rapidly depreciating. But noone should buy a mechanical watch as an investment.

Oh man, that sucks.

When you say "winder", what's the issue exactly?

I may be using the wrong terms but it's a manual wind watch where you wind it using the crown, and pull the crown out to adjust the time. Now it only adjusts the time regardless of whether the crown is in the normal or pulled-out position. It will not wind the watch anymore

This happened before, necessitating a $500-ish repair IIRC

How do you guys store and travel with your watches? I have a watch roll which I don't really like for either purpose. For storage, it's annoying to have slide the wide in and out of the sleeve, particularly for my older acrylic crystals, and there's nothing to separate bracelets from the caseback. For travel there's no padding. Relatedly, can anyone recommend a watch winder?

Oakley watch cases and wrap the watch in soft microfiber cloth.

The small ones are hard to find but casebudi works too. The trick is wrapping up the watch in a soft cloth.

Quick and dirty. Trick or treat mayhem with the kiddos. So just a few iPhone pics. Pam 580

I have a Tag Heuer Carrera whose band needs replacing. It was a nice alligator leather that I really enjoyed, but I'm not wanting to pay them like $400 to replace it. Are there other nice leather options that I could explore from elsewhere?

Sorry, but not a fan of FMs.  Generally overpriced and unimpressive.

Yes, and that was his brand's greatest contribution to horology.
