    Credor day-date GMT, the crown on the top right sets the independent hour hand when pulled out. And the movement isn't so bad to look at either! Based on the old 52xx movement architecture, this movement line is now largely discontinued as it made way to other more modern movements from Seiko.

    In Berlin with the family.

    First a tribute to Mad Dog. I tried to convince my wife to stop for coffee saying something about all these DD photos at the forum (everytime I mention OF she looks so tired::confused2::) but she wouldn't. She would rather go to the Starbucks so naturally that was what we did.

    I was however allowed to snap one of her for the forum.

    Now double dogging it by adding Speedy Gonzales to my Illinois Bunn Special Sixty Hour for today. @ChuckMK23 (who is also wearing his Speedy Gonzales) was a most kind host for a small GTG as well as cooking dinner for my wife and I at his residence...thanks again, Chuck! :thumbsup:

    Which service center was this? Had a similar frustration with Dallas Tx on my Montblanc a couple of years ago. Took them three trips to get it right.

    Sorry to hear that they do the same "quality" job also in their other "service centers"...

    CARTIER BENELUX & SCANDINAVIA

    Email: cs.amsterdam@cartier.com

    Richmont service center in Amsterdam Is responsible for "screwing up" my watch. It was sent there twice and the latest "beginners error" was corrected by my local AD. The local AD has their own Cartier trained watchmakers, but are not allowed to service watches with more complex calibers...My watch has an basic chronograph movement by Frédéric Piguet (1185) used by other high class manufactures like AP, VC, Blancpain & Cartier. As long as I have owned mechanical watches (my Pascha from 1999), part of the experience has been that you have been able to talk to your local watchmaker about your collection and the service needs. Now that part has been mostly taken away (not by Omega) and you are left at the mercy of an anonymous corporate giant who only cares about new sales and offer poor and unprofessional aftermarket service... Do they understand how much they hurt their precious brand value ?
