A question to you TZ members out there, I can't seem to locate the page that provides description or instruction on TZ ratings. Can anyone direct me to it?

I spilled hot coffee on my wrist and watch today. Now, according to the manufacturer's website the watch has a WR rating of 3atm, a o-ring crown, and a caseback gasket. I'm assuming the watch would be fine? Never really worried about spills and water before because my other watches have a pretty high WR, so I am a bit unsure of the 3 atm rating.

You should be a-ok!

Thanks Warren. I will be sure to take some pictures of it when it arrives in a couple days. I had to liquidate some things to get it, but I think it will be more than worth it smile.gif

There's lot's that you shoud be aware of ! smile.gif and a good place to start is with reading up on the Mark11 models, here you will see the original dial for the Pilot's Watch - great reading

http://www.markeleven.com/  IWC is a great manufacturer of quality watches

It is my humble opinion that you cannot go wrong with a JLC master series :)

 

Congratulations and wear it in good health!

As for the Longines issue. I think that the poster above had a good idea with the Zenith Captain Elite. The only question I have in regards to that watch is the movement... I am not sure that the Zenith Captain's use an in-house movement. Nonetheless, a lovely watch.

are there certain watches for which they do not? I thought Zenith made all their own movements...they even make them for many designer brand watches I believe.

For some reason or another, and please don't quote me on this, I thought that some of their movements were not 100% in house... I tried googling it, but nothing came up, so I will give Zenith the benefit of the doubt smile.gif. I know that they provide a lot of watches with the El Primero movement, which is in house, however. I will check it out. Regardless, I still think that Zenith is one of the best "bang for your buck" brands out there. Some of there stuff is a bit gaudy, but they have some lovely pieces.

And thank you Cyclon for your well wishes!

^^ IIRC Zenith actually made movements for Rolex.
