It is VERY COOL!!! So glad I was able to start this ball rolling again! It had been dormant after a false start in '07 by another member here, so I am glad we were able to see this one through to the end! Never would have guessed it was going to be a year long journey but I knew it would take quite some time to make it happen the right way!

Man, if Chris and RKD had not come on board with me this NEVER would have happened! Thanks guys!

Thanks Chris! Can't wait for Monday

Question for you. Automatic watches like this, Rolex, etc. Is it better store them on a winder or let them run down and sit in the box?

I'm talking about storing for weeks at a time. I have a Rolex but I suspect it will go into storage when the 928 watch gets here

Just curious what you think the best storage method is to keep the movement in the best condition on this kind of watch where one might swap them out every few weeks.

Having them on a winder is very convenient. Switch the watch and it's all set and ready to be worn. No need to fiddle with the crowns.
Having to unscrew them and screw them back down incorrectly will affect the longevity of them.
I can't tell you how many crown I replace on Rolex, Omega, and Tag! It's amazing.
If it is done properly, there will rarely be a problem.
If you are careful you shouldn't have a problem or need the winder But they are kinda useful when in a rush and you want to switch the watch.
But with the 928 watch, I haven't had to switch it
I wear it daily...really! I even wore it to a wedding Saturday.

I think I broke it already, the winder won’t go back (or should I say stay) in the closed position.

What the secret to keep this thing in… mine keeps popping back out?

It should just screw down. Gently push down while screwing it in.

I see.. push in and turn (as in several revolution still it stops).

I wasn't turning it enough so it would stick in for a while them pop back out later.

Little more complex than my Timex.

Thanks!

Kurt,

Don't feel bad, I got the deployant clasp and had to call to get directions on how to use it because I was afraid I was going to break it!

Ha! I had the same problem. Plus I couldn't get it unscrewed in the first place.

I felt like and idiot... called Chris 3 times or so.

ok, I just got mine & it's truly an awesome piece of watch art! & 928 art too!! Thanks Chris!!

I still feel a bit naive, but somewhat less so just reading the above posts. How do you get the crown open to adjust the time? I tried to pull outward, but was afraid I'd do damage after it didn't relent with fairly strong tugs. Does it unscrew?? I have been a Seiko guy up to now so I have lots to learn. And I thought I loved my new Kinetic Seiko I got from Santa!! Wooooo Hoooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

OK thanks. I'd heard that too, that manual winding of this watch type was hard on the crown and stem but I suspect I'll be wearing the 928 watch exclusively at least for a while

Just waiting on the truck
