Are there any similar design wristwatches to A. Lange & Söhne ?

Are there any cheapish watches (under £100) that allow you to see the inside workings? i.e don't have a typical cover?

Those fasinate me for sure.

Patek and many independents in terms of quality. GO on terms of style

Beautiful round case. Not a big fan of broad arrows, but this one looks great.

Ah, the ones where you can see all the workings are called Skeleton watches :D

Love the look of them.

 

Look at this one as an example:

Or haha, a more expensive one:

This one doesn't look so bad either:

This also looks different:
 

Android watch

 

You tell me this doesn't look so so kewl. I'm getting one :)

More of a technology question but if I'm going to find some expertise, I think it's going to be in this thread!

I have a Seiko Kinetic ... yes, I know, you're all just about to point me at a capacitor replacement kit. That's probably the answer but I'd like an opinion on how likely alternative/additional issues may be before I try that.

The watch is a 5M63 and my understanding is that it should already have a Li-ion cell, good for 20+ years and with a reserve of several months. I've charged it to the 30s indicator by swinging it rather than by just wearing it. Let's be pessimistic and say it's just gone over the 20s indicator. The watch stops overnight. It started to deteriorate when I'd had the watch (from new) for about 5-6 years and at the time I was wearing it through the working week. Then it stopped holding charge over the weekend. Once or twice when I've pressed the indicator button, the second hand has juddered in place without advancing. After 5, 10, 20, 30s, whatever the charge would have been, it carried on as normal. Is this indicative of anything or just an anomaly?

Any thoughts on it being something other than the battery in the battery-less watch? (What a con that turned out to be!)

Seiko UK just issued a standard, 'send it to us for a once over, that'll be £90 (+shipping), thanks'. No mention of replacement kits or issues with Kinetics. Didn't really address the specifics. Disappointing.

@Klaatu: Your Monaco looks good with the fat leather strap but I still think the strap would suit a Panerai-type of watch better. If you want to use a leather strap with the Monaco a black crocodile strap would be my personal choice redface.gif

Heh, you and every other watch geek I know. Either black croc or a black ralley with white stitching regular_smile%20.gif Some of them are pretty insistent about it.

X2, I have a strap that looks like it on my 90 and love it.

hehe yeah, exactly - and I think it never hurts trying something different. Maybe I am just a bit too conservative when it comes to watches normal_smile%20.gif

I like the big, thick, rugged Panny strap because it's comfortable, to be honest. I've been eyeing gator straps on eBay as they can be found reasonably there.
