+1 can never go wrong with a speedy. okay i just saw the explorer on a nato in the last page. do you guys think it works? i have a hard time imagining a railmaster, explorer I, and iwc mark 16 on a nato but for sure t's been done. i just think diver or chrono automatically or cheapie seiko/ timex.

Not saying you'll think it works, but you can see a Mark XV on a RAF and on a NATO strap here and here.

Naturally it depends on the type of watch used with the Nato strap, but if you follow what bhall states above, you'll look fine.

Need some advice guys regarding two watch repairs: First, my Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope stopped turning the date today when I went to put it on. Where would you recommend servicing something like this? Second, I was gifted a Cartier Roadster Automatic that has a cracked crystal and possibly damaged interior. I called Cartier and they estimated me $750 for a new crystal and service. That's complete bullshit IMO. Where would you recommend servicing this high end POS?

Rambo, what city and state are you in?

Do you want a local source or will you ship the Cartier for the work?

Depends on your location for sure, but in my point of view, go to the official service always is better.

The Junghans probably has a Valjoux 7750 movement, the Cartier prob. has some sort of ETA (2892-2?). Both are fairly standard movements, just refinished/dressed up slightly. Any proper watch repair guy should know these well. If the Cartier movement is completely f@{ked, I don't think $750 is that much - maybe you should get it checked by an independent watch repair guy first?

i always wore my explorer on a nato, to me the strap bulked it out a bit. on a side note, dropped my speedy last night onto wooden floor havent timed it yet but it seems to be running fast, also the resistance point when fully wound seems to have gone. anyone had this? is it a major repair?
