I have several watches from Long Island Watch; great place for Seiko watches.

Question: what do you think of the new automatic movements that cannot be wound at the crown--you have to move the watch or just wear it. I have so many automatics I wind monthly, I don't like holding these and just shaking them for 2 minutes each! thanks for your response! Nan's Time

Not new at all. This is a common trait in some of Seikos most used movements, most notably the 7s26/36 which are used in Seiko 5 watches and a great many of their popular dive watches.

I'd like to order a pizza to go with no anchovies.
No anchovies? --- you've got the wrong man. I spell my name "Danger".

I checked this site and I certainly liked it as prices were reasonable for different brands I'd like to purchase.

Long Island watch seems very reputable. Did not buy there several times. Because I found the watch cheaper elsewhere, with free shipping thrown in.

LIW is the best retailer in the US for Orient--prices very close to OUSA and great service. OUSA has a larger selection, though. If the same watch is available from OUSA and LIW, I'll get it from LIW, even if the price is a bit higher.
