This is a cool thread. I love watches as much as I love cars. I have owned several watches since I was a kid, but have been very wearing them now. The ones that I currently own is a Ricoh Automatic. Don't remember the model number as it was a watch my dad bought for himself several years ago. It has a Japanese Automatic movement and never needs a battery or winding. It has a Day and Date column at 3 o'clock. Will post a pic of my watch once I get it.

Wishlist -
Rolex or Omega

Default Shipping from Amazon.com to India?

Anyone has ever ordered a watch from Amazon.com and got it shipped to India?

I want to buy this watch from Amazon:

Tag Heuer Formula One Mens Watch WAH111C.BA0850

Name:  51GKaLxvEL.jpg
Views: 1329
Size:  35.6 KB

Is $1,025.00 a good price for this or is there any other online shopping malls I need to be checking?

Any special things to note, when I ship that to India? I am planning to give my office address here in Trivandrum, Kerala.

@Clevermax I did buy books from amazon and it was delivered through FedEx in good shape. The only thing was that my shipping cost turned out to be more then the cost of the two books.

Tag does sell locally did you check the price here.


@ JKDas ther's a picture of the Timex Expedition you mentioned in the previous page. Its a black one though.

Thank you. No I did not check the price here locally as my town doesn't have a Tag dealership. I think one is there in Blr, right?

Grew up looking at those smuggled digital Casios but ultimately fell in love with Timex. One from the Ironman series was my favourite, which i had to part with few years back. A Casio datbank came as its replacement but i could never welcome it into my life. It always remains locked being never used. I miss my Ironman.

Default How do I adjust the month?

Feeling little stupid, but I have to ask, how do I change the month in this watch?
Isnt that semi circular dial on the left for month?

Its a Citizen AN3420.

In my defence, the box just had the warrenty card, no user manual. Google too was not able to find one. And I dont want to feel like a dork going over to the watch store to ask the store guy. So, plz help.

Thanks!
