    Schooled, horophile style... I feel I should do an overdue battery change on my own in order to redeem myself

    Since we're on the topic of pocket watches, perhaps some light can be a shed on a matter...

    I currently have a nice Unitas 6498/7 powered, hunter cased pocket watch. I also don't have the funds to go for the near-bespoke offerings of Jaeger LeCoultre, Breguet and Patek Phillipe but am feeling to add another pocket piece to the winder. Is there a pocket watch which is a little more reasonably priced (i.e, ~$5,000>) but does not have a "basic" Unitas movement? I thought I had found one in the Bell & Ross PW1, but alas it is said to house the Unitas movement.

    I know that most people will suggest that I go vintage, and I very well may, but I'd like to know if I have any options for buying new from a dealer.

    Thanks!

    Holy, those vintage skeleton Omegas are insane and ~$1-2000?

    Since I'm very unfamiliar to the mechanical/ winding watches (googling explains some), is this something you can wear everyday without wrecking it/ costing lots?

    What's are some other alternatives within same price range?

    Yeah but those watches are over 100 years old. In THAT shape for that age, thats insane, if I was in better financial standing I`d drop 2-4 times that on one of those. Each of those is a piece of (mint condition) history. Besides; how cool of a conversation piece would those be eh? Considering they`ve been keeping time since before WWI
    I wear my mechanical movement watches everyday at work and elsewhere and I`ve never come anywhere near breaking one. Which includes incredibly rough usage; building & fixing heavy oil pumps that weigh hundreds of pounds; I think its safe to say they get a good beating everyday. Still no problems ever. Most Rolex`s are very very tough as well. They just wont die, in very similar use.
    As far as maintenance; just give them to a watch maker once a year or two, and let him oil them up. Most watches never require much work at all, just simple lubes for all the moving parts.

    Im FAR from an expert as to which watches are the most durable, but there are plenty out there. Hopefully Rage & others can chime in with that. From what I`ve heard the Tourbillion watches are the most delicate. I dont think that should much matter though as you`ll likely never find a new one for under $3k.

    Speedy Pro "57 re-issue" that came out a few years ago as a special edition.

    I've bought and sold this one 4 or 5 times over the years. I find the hands hard to see in anything but perfect light, but it's different enough from the "standard" speedy pro that I can justify keeping it.

    Very nice indeed, Pacman. Does that have a 321 caliber or one of the 861 variants? A great piece which looks good on your wrist, at any rate!

    It uses the 1861 (which came just after the 861, I believe). These were made for a very short time in 2000. I don't think they were popular at all when they were new, as they were priced $400 more than the "standard" Speedy Pro. I remember seeing them sitting in dealers showcases for years after they were discontinued. The last couple of years ,they have become more popular as the vintage look seems to be back in.
