really no right or wrong, really depends on what you value.
I hear you. I guess if you have the money to own a rolly then a few hundred on servicing wouldnt be an issue.





Anyone know what is the best way to fix scratches on a watch's face?

yeah, just like some folks on here upgrades their computer every year using over $2k worth of components. If the watch face is acrylic then you can use poly watch to buff it out, i believe it basically re-positions plastic on the surface and covers up the scratches in doing so.

Reading comments on $$$ servicing some of these watches are crazy expensive. I could buy a decent watch with that kind of money lolz. I guess many ballers are on RFD.
It is and it isn't? Rolex has a recommended 10 year service interval at a cost of roughly $900 let's say. At $90/year doesn't seem that bad to me.

Yes servicing is part of owning any mechanical watch. Some people don't service their watch until something breaks.

I feel the exact opposite - I can't get past the poor design of the big date on the ALS. Not having the leading zero ruins the balance of the dial, and I am also not a fan of that mullion they use between the 2 date windows that tries to hide the fact that the 2 date disks are on different levels. The big date on the GO is far superior in design and execution in my view.

It looks like The Urban Gentry has released a watch in collaboration with Squale.

It looks pretty fugly to me. The red and blue don't match very well at all.
THe dial is actually grey. Check the video in the link. It's not a blue dial. I think it's nice.

LAco's are massive. But they make a reasonably priced flieger.

This one is a 44mm and it has curved lugs compared to a IWC Big Pilot 47mm and straight lugs. I have pretty small wrists and this one fits surprisingly well.

I have a Omega speedmaster professional moon watch, bought it sometime in the early '80's. Think I paid around 2 or $300 new. Do not have the original box or receipt anymore

I see the new ones retail in the $5000 range? Seems to be grossly overpriced, but I don't know. Never wear it anymore. My new casio g shock actually keeps better time.

When selling old watches, do buyers usually remove the back covers to inspect it? Or maybe I should keep it?
