Default Hey guys

Long time lurker here. I finally started a profile. I’ve loved watches since I was a young man and maybe it’s my Swiss lineage, but I love me some time pieces. I have 25 pieces currently, mostly low end and entry level stuff. I’m looking to learn more and begin procuring better watches moving forward. Hopefully I can learn a thing or two and make knowledgeable decisions with everyone’s collective inputs on this forum. Regards to all! V/R, Sticky

Default Bloopers and two boxes on my porch

So last night while attempting to change the batteries in a snap back Skagen I realized I am not properly equipped for snap back cases. Never had a problem getting them back on before. When brute force didnít work I attempted to tap it on with a small plastic tipped jewelers hammer. Didnít work and when I flipped it over I realized I had tapped damn near every hour indice off the face. 😬 oops! On a better note I have a Deep Blue defender 40mm and a Ball fireman storm chaser pro to unpackage when I get home. Canít wait!

Coming here and becoming a Watch Freek can be detrimental to your wallet.

It's like coming to your 1st AA meeting and everyone has a beer in their hands!

Interesting and varied bunch you have there.


BTW, a snap on caseback should be pressed back, preferably with an appropriate tool, failing which you end up like you did. Hope you get it sorted.
