I don't think I ever responded to this...Except the seiko, I don't have any of the affected watches anymore. And I agree with you. I still kinda think the magnetic field thing is bunk. But, I haven't found another explanation. And there was a period of about 20 years where I only wore (or even thought about) my Seamaster and wore a fake rolex I've had since I was a kid when it was in for service. So, I haven't experimented much.Lets get to the bottom of this:
1) What watches are affected?
2) What are the symptoms?
Yeah. Your pics are part of the reason. It looks like countycomm is selling some more SR-35s in a few weeks if I don't want to track down a used one. And as much as I like the super-minimal SR-3, I also really like the maseratti-ish symbol. And apparently at some point they were upgraded to hacking and hand-winding movements. Which is good.As an owner of 2 Maratacs and a Steinhart, I don't think you'll go wrong if you give them a try.
