aBlogtoWatch has been producing some buying guides for eBay, and we’ve got a fresh new batch to share. Now, we know that many “watch people” know the ins and outs of how to buy, sell, and trade watches online. However, more casual or beginning people who don’t have the confidence of experience can find themselves overwhelmed, intimidated, and plain stressed out about the process. We hope our guides, which are designed to answer broader questions about watch buying as well as provide watch brand- and model-specific guides, provide a good frame of reference for anyone on the hunt for a timepiece.

On the heels of Baselworld, we know a lot of you guys saw some drool-worthy pieces. But what if your grail is out of reach and you need an attainable alternative that manages to hold some muster? Take a look at our alternatives to grail watches from Baselworld 2016 Part 1 where we look at the new Rolex Daytona and Patek Philippe 5930 World Time, and then check out Part 2, where we look at some options for those lusting after the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon and Chanel Monsier de Chanel. There’s nothing like getting your hands on your grail watch, but at least there are decent options to hold you over until you do.
Moving on from Baselworld, last time we focused on dive watches like the Rolex Submariner, so we thought we’d take a look at chronograph watches this time. We’ve already looked at the Rolex Daytona and the Omega Watches Australia Replica Speedmaster Professional, but there’s no way leaving out the Zenith El Primero was an option, since it is properly iconic, arguably being the first automatic chronograph watch.
Sometimes the watches we discuss can be out of reach for many watch fans, so we thought this would be a good time as any to introduce our “What’s The Deal?” in which we explore affordable, more accessible models of popular yet costly watches. With that in mind, make sure to check out “What’s The Deal? The Omega Speedmaster Automatic” for Speedmaster lovers who just can’t quite go for the Moonwatch. In the same vein we look at watches that are surprisingly more affordable than a lot of people might guess for a range of budgets. Suggestions? Leave ’em in the comments!
Moving on, we attempt to help prospective watch buyers with questions like “What watch is appropriate to wear to the office?” where we go through office hierarchy and discuss things like how an intern’s watch shouldn’t be nicer than the boss’s. On opposite ends of the spectrum, we take a look at buying gold watches on eBay and also at some of the toughest analog watches you can buy.
The escapement is utilized in conjunction with a free-sprung equilibrium, the favored approach for nice watch movements. Omega’s assurance in the Co-Axial is such that every watch delivered with it is a COSC-certified chronometer, and it comes with a four-year warranty.In 2013, Omega Watches Portland Replica announced the creation of the world’s earliest movement that’s immune to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss, much exceeding the amount of magnetic resistance attained by any previous movement. Many anti-magnetic watches use a soft iron inner case which distributes electromagnetism in such a manner that it cancels the influence on the motion. Omega’s strategy was to design a motion where the essential components are fashioned from non-ferrous materials, eliminating the need for an inner case and providing a much greater resistance to magnetic fields. Omega’s strategy has the added benefits of allowing a date window on the dial, and a screen back. Watches with internal cases can’t offer you these features because each requires a opening at the inner case. In Baselworld 2015, Omega introduced its own “Master Chronometer” motion, which comprised its pioneering antimagnetic technology, inside an all-new watch version, the Omega Globemaster. The brand has since gone on to outfit many other models with Master Chronometer movements, including an entirely new line of Seamaster Planet Ocean versions in 2016.
