    I usally have three in my rotation. This month I am wearing my Cartier Pasha. A big watch for a big fella. And the GIANT Steel 30 jewel automatic Hamilton and a big giant Roger Dubuis that I wook out of inventory. (Plus a steel no date submariner that I am wearing for a customer so I can see if it stops all the time as he says. So far, I have worn it off and on for 10 days and perfect time. BUt when we give it back to him he brings it back within three days saying it stopped! Claims to keep it wound and that he never lays it down for for more than 12 hours etc etc.

    Today I have a Bulova Accutron 214 Circa 1964 on my wrist & in my pocket a Illinois Interstate Chronometer 17J HC Circa 1919. Only God knows what I will have on me tomorrow.

    PS JH I don't have a real real Early American watch to wear. The earliest I have is a 1879 Waltham KW

    On this day I am wearing a 14k pink gold bubbleback that I sold a customer about3 weeks ago. He returned it saying it is not running right and that it stops.

    I have been wearing it for two and a half days now. I wear it all day and then set it down in the evening and put in on again in the morning.

    It has been keeping time with my wifes quatz Lecoultre.

    Dang this always happens.

    Couple of months ago a guy who bought a ladies two tone Rolex from us returned it 5 times saying it would "just stop". Our watchmakers would watch it diligently and it never stopped.

    Twice they did this. He returned it eacah time.
    NExt tim ehe returned it my wife wore it for a solid week. It never wavered. Gave it back tot he guy and he brought it back, saying it stopped.

    And get this! He said he did NOT have buyers remorse and was willing to pay for a new movement! I found a like new Steel watch with paper on EBAY. It was like 4 months old. He gave me a few hundred dollars and I swapped out the movement. I sold that steel one with his movemnt and it has not come back.

    The guy with the new movement has come back and said his wifes watch stops! My wife wore it again for a week and it never wavered.

    What the heck is up?

    Maybe the lady's arm is magnetic.

    Today I'm wearing an 18s Elgin pocketwatch ca. 1878. In 2 days it has lost 40 seconds. Not bad for a 125 year old watch. ;)

    Is it possible that some people move their arms and wrists in a certain way that doesn't wind the watch? It would obviously be a rare trait, but that's possible.

    Today, an absolutely beautiful Wyler that I swear is a dead ringer for a Bubbleback. 9 1/2L
    AS 1320 auto, gold shell on a SS base, solid gold faceted bezel. My take is about '55 vintage. One of the very few unique Wylers.
    Regarding the stopped watches: Some people really have a severe effect on watches. I once loaned a perfectly running Mido to a friend who was about 280 lbs at the time. That watch not only stopped running, it was so magnetized that it would race when it did run.

    Mine says Orator Watch Co. VYS is on the balance bridge. Couldn't find that code in Bestfit or is Shugart. Did find a similar movement in Bestfit, starts with an L (don't remember what, and am not home to check). Any ideas?

    I love the Le Coultre Power Reserve in all its variants. It has to be one the top sleepers in the wristwatch world. Great choice.
