Isn't that awesome! I am SOOO HAPPY with the way this all turned out! Took a year, but it was WELL worth it! Really QUALITY time piece that is very understated and attractive and gets all the RIGHT kind of attention!
It was a quick year The Italians are doing the same thing to me
I keep waiting and waiting and waiting

Also, how do I get the straps removed from the watch itself? I'm not use to these watches :P
A few questions to try and resolve the issue:

1) How long do you wear the watch? 1 day at a time? Or weeks at a time?
2) How long after you set the watch down does it stop?
3) After it has been in-op and sitting, do you manually wind it prior to putting it back on? (This should be done)

Yes, but only with a PAG-approved derivative..(See Pic below)

+1. Many watch guys are totally against doing this on an automatic yet the watch's mainspring will never reach full 'reserve' potential by wearing it normally (Unless of course you're Boris Becker).

Is it real? I like the hands on our 928 about 10000 times more, and the dial, and the strap, and the caseback.

I get the same thing. My 928 watch gets way more comments than my GMT Pro Hunter or my Seamaster (007 edition cause I am a geek). Anyone can have one of them. Only 100 of us can have the 928 watch!

I'm saving mine for something special, my grandson's 16th birthday. He'll get the watch, and car to go with it.

^^^^^^
OMG!!! What car are you talking about? A 16 year old with an automatic OB that is beautiful is one thing, a 16 year old with an S4 (5spd or Auto...or even an '85 S with either) is probably not a good idea for you, the kid or the car! Don't ask me how I know! I know few 21 year olds (boys mostly) who have enough self control to own a car like a 5.0L or newer 928! I do LOVE the thought though!

James, my grandson is that one in a million boys that will always do the right thing. He 's nothing like his grandfather. He'll be so worried about puting a scratch in the car, that he'll never push it.
He gets his fun out of his shifter go-kart, he knows that he can race like crazy on the track, and that it's the only place to race.

Polecat I hope you are RIGHT! Sounds like he has a better shot at being the one than most for sure! Having a dedicated racer to really push the adrenaline is a good thing and hopefully will help him keep his right foot in check on the street!

Unscrew the crown just until the spring pops it into the 'neutral' position and start cranking away. Usually, a good 20 cranks should get the watch wound up pretty good. Once you're done, screw the crown in while applying light pressure to re-seat.
