    Time to call it a day.......

    Time for me to quit this forum, if not permanantly at least for a good while.

    Alongside a few other lifestyle changes I’ve taken the decision to cease activity on here. No point in banging on...

    I really couldn't get worried about this. It could be argued that the outer white sleeve has performed its intended duty and protected the green inner box.

    Man, you've got it bad if you don`t like allowing them to stop! They're not like your pet hamster, they don`t die if their heart stops beating.

    I forgot about the hidden date change mechanism, an embarrassing admission considering I`ve serviced this movement before!

    For a watch to stop at bang on 12, with the seconds hand on 12 too, is a huge coincidence, and Iím never happy with accepting coincidence as an explanation for anything. Yes, it can happen, but...

    At some point during ownership this watch would have needed servicing, one of you would've had to pay for that, so just think of it as paying early. A 4 year old quality watch shouldn't suffer...

    Agree 100%, thatís why you needto get your arse moving and try one on. If you like it buy it, if you donít you donít buy it. You cannot evaluate watches from behind a screen.

    Overwinding is a myth, it isnít possible. Mainspring couldíve broken, but thatís unusual.

    Suggest you contact a Rolex accredited Indy such as Bill Rice or Duncan Potter (Genesis).
