I’ve been thinking about what comes next for the app. The May (2019.5) release was really big and time consuming. It opened new possibilities for a few extra features and improvements. Also, the recent WWDC and announcements of Dark Theme Mode will definitely affect my work. In June my focus is to improve on the… Continue reading Watch Case- what’s next?
The next version of the app will be number 2019.5 but think of it as a 2.0 with lots of new features, refreshed UI, improved stability (fingers crossed) and with a new price (Free!).

I got the Seiko Spirit SCVE005 in September 2017. Now, more than a year later, I’m still not sure how I feel about the purchase. There are a few details about this piece I really love and appreciate, like its Bauhaus design, the dark-blue accent or a beautiful, silver dial.

I also find out that it is possible to remove scratches with a few… Continue reading That crystal had a rough life
I waited a whole five minutes before I decided to open the watch and take a look at the movement. And yeah…I didn’t stop after lifting the back cover. I didn’t have my tool box with me at that time but I still managed to take off the blue outer bezel and remove the crystal.… Continue reading The initial disassembly.
I was a six years old boy in 1992 when my grandpa passed away. As my dad told me, this watch was grandpa’s daily wearer for years but he stopped using it at some point. My dad didn’t know why and frankly, he forgot about the watch until we found it a few years ago.… Continue reading Only for special occasions.
I can’t say it was an impulse buy, but I wasn’t really planning in advance. I sometimes browse eBay for used Seiko 6138 or Seiko 6139 models but didn’t actually think I will find one worth buying. Somehow, this time was different and after a few exchanges with the seller to make sure that the… Continue reading My first eBay watch.
