I’ve almost pulled the trigger on an Oysterquartz many a time, but my hesitation is you’ll want one recently serviced, and ideally a late model full kit. It also ticks Super loud.

There is some fascinating history on Rolex and their quartz movements; apparently they had a prototype perpetual quartz that would have been amazing. Part of me hopes they resurrect it in a new 38/39mm thin Oysterquartz. A kid can dream...

Has anyone noted their resignation but then was able to be talked into staying? My firm is doing everything to try to keep me and it’s really making me question if I should leave.

I recently heard someone talking about working remotely and having two full time jobs. It was viewed as taboo, but seemed to be something a lot of people are doing. Neither company was aware the employee was working another job. Could someone who is working from home successfully pull this off? What’s the down side?

Hello Bosses,
I have been in property management for 20 years, primarily managing low income housing. I have worked for 8 companies and have been with my current employer for 6 months. I have left positions in the past when I begin to feel stagnant or when my experience is not valued. My reason for “job hopping” as many would see it isn’t because I lack the skills to do the job but because I put in 1000% and do not feel I am fairly compensated or my hard work is recognized.

Went to a tourneau and was about to splurge on a pre-owned sub. Asking price was $10k and as someone who doesn’t know much about Rolex, was surprised to find out that a new sub retails for $7.9k! How?

People were talking about the Seiko cocktail time in here, just got in the OG, SARB065. Wow that dial is really something, Seiko is great at that. It’s not quite Grand Seiko or anything, but the finishing on the markers and handset is very nice for a $500 watch. It’s a little thicker than I like for a dress watch, and I hate the way the strap looks, but I get why Seiko-philes love these.

I came across a Brietling I really like at a decent price point (1.5k) on r/watchexchange. What types of questions should I be asking about the watch? I’ve asked why he’s selling, how long, and I’m planning on asking for box/purchase papers etc. It looks to be in good shape from the pictures and priced under what I’ve seen on Chrono24 for the same piece. The seller has been very active on the subreddit and sold other prices and seems to have good feedback
