Ok, so I don't have a Rolex or even anything with physical "hands", but does anyone else have a watch with tide charts for hundreds of international locations pre-programmed into it? Very handy if you want to take your Alfa surfing.

Not correct, Quarts R-lex

Hi Crew
By law R-lex is a reg trade mark and thay enforce it!
Rol-x indeed made a Quarts watch! It is a very nice movment with waves and turned and polished egdes.
I ama Materwatch maker and have serviced a lot of them. There Called The Oyster Quarts
The movement in yours the E.T.A. is a 2824- It beats @ 28,000, 4 Hz per second 4 beats per sec.
The photos are some history for you guys some rare Master split timer and other nice time works.

An OQ will definatelly be my next purchase. The movement is just beautiful. They are very "cheap" too. Maybe they'll be the next orange hand explorer....

After reading my post there is a little error. the 4Hz on a 2824 28,800 Not 28,000. No Biggie.
I am alittle out on buying watchs as per modern cost. Is the OQ under $1000.00 yet?
Glad you have seen one . I am Not a R-lex guy unless Chronographs, But there Quarts is 1 of the best ever made for a Battery watch.

You can find them a bit beaqt up at about 800-900 if you are lucky. 1000-1300 you can find some very decent SS models and the ocasional ss/14kt.

Chronos on the dashboard make me happy.

I really would love to get a neat old dashmount stopwatch, but its one of those things I dont feel qualified to even consider.

How should someone educate themselves about vintage stopwatches - how is the market - ebay usually has some stuff, but its ebay...

There's alot of mechanical watches out there. You need to keep a few things in mind. Any basic, non complicated, stainless steel watch over 300 dollars is usually purely jewlery. Vintage stopwatches are a bit different. You have quite a few things to consider, age, quality of build, reputation of brand......Heur i know made some very nice stuff. Go to timezone.com for more info on various brands, ask around about stopwatches and see your responses. Good luck
