    New watch, my family clubbed together and bought this for me this Christmas. Was genuinely surprised.

    Out of curiosity I'd looked to see if DELAG had made any specific watches for their crews, but couldn't really find any information on the subject. However, Point Tech do have a Zeppelin themed range of watches; of which the one that I have is the LZ129 (Hindenburg.)



    If anyone's interested in reading first hand accounts about airship travel, specifically on LZ127 and LZ129, you'll want to find a book called; The Golden Age of the Great Passenger Airships: Graf Zeppelin and Hindenburg by Harold G. Dick. It is a great read and explains exactly what it took to fly these ships.

    Saw a lot of those Zeppelin pieces and other bits of more well known German watchmaking while I was in Munich and I was genuinely impressed. That's a very nice gift!

    The post-service shiny case and bezel annoy me because I like my tool watches to have a "well-worn" look. It was nice and scruffy before service but my grandpop took such little care of it that it was mechancally buggered.

    When it finally died and I gave it to Rolex, they acquiesced to my request not to polish it, but insisted that some parts would have to be replaced and those come from the factory with a polished finish. At the time, I was told only the crown, bezel and caseback would be replaced, so I figured that wasn't so bad. When it came back with a new case entirely (with no increase in the quoted price!) I was pleased because, hey, insane value, but now I have a shiny ****ing watch that I have to "break in" all over again and until everything evens out, the newer parts will continue to stand out.

    That's actually why I don't wear it too often. It took the new year for me to decide to just wear it, warts and all, and get the scruffy look going again.

    I know, they're what the rest of the watch world call oversized. :D

    I've just bought a Seiko SKX007K. I couldn't see the point for paying for the J version when they have the same internals.

    I've got a watch from my father in-law, can any of you guys tell me what model is it? there isn't much writing apart from "Omega", "Automatic Chronometer" and "Swiss Made". The watch looks very simple without any extra dials, only has a date counter.

    Also, it stopped last night. Is there anything I have to do to keep it running? I take it off when I get home, and at the office it's coding so my wrist doesn't do big movements. Do I have to swing it a few times before taking it off in the afternoon?
