Actual Public Forum Threads

Postby TemerityB » April 13th 2017, 6:52am

Every other watch site makes me wanna gouge my eyes out with a caseback opener. From the WUS "Public Forum," where watch repartee goes to get lanced, drained, and impacted with gauze (all verbatim):

Poll: What kinda caseback do you prefer >>>

The real dead zone for watches is between $1,500 and $3,000, isn't it?

Any Cap America or Sipderman fans out there?

Watch with most wrist presence?

Your watch with an action figure!!
(I was gonna respond to this one with a picture of a beater next to my dick, but then I figured it would have been redundant.)

Jumping in water with a watch?

Poll: WATCH BOX ORGANIZATION THEORY - post your pics and thoughts

The WUS Public forum is a madhouse. Truth be told, it's better enjoyed from a distance. I comment there sometimes, either to infuriate some Invicta fans, or to help whoever went so badly astray in terms of choosing the place to ask about identifying their vintage watch. I try to limit my presence there to a minimum, so that the place has as little influence on me as possible.

A few weeks ago, there was a thread in there, where a guy has raised hell about his Panerai 8 days- that after 3 weeks (of constant wear, regular winding every three or four days) it's off by three minutes, and he doesn't know what to do, and he's thinking of returning it.

Long story short, the arsehole didn't do his maths- the watch was running at a fairly consistent rate of about +7 seconds per day, which is well within expectations for a non-chronometer watch with a very small balance (three barrels need some space), and actually, it's a rate more than decent for such a movement.

It reminded me of that old anecdote about a guy, who went to a pharmacy with a prescription for suppositories, and the next day, he comes complaining that they're not working, and they're bitter. The thread ran for quite a few pages, mostly a chorus of idiots shouting "Return it! Return it!" Well, that's the Public forum.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
