Hello all,

I just joined the forum and did not see a Newbie section, so I thought I'd post here. I've always loved watches since I inherited my grandfathers Elgin pocket watch when I was 11, and my father gave me a Seiko which he bought on a trip to Japan, at about the same age.

One of the main things I am looking for is a fairly accurate, relatively inexpensive watch. My Seiko was Great! It was of early 1970's vintage and purchased by my dad as a present for passing my open water SCUBA test when I was 10 or 11. Unfortunately, that watch came off of my wrist while preforming an aerial jump in a Ski area. I spent hours walking up and down about 100 yards of the slope looking for it to no avail.

I just bought a LumiNox Diver Professional 8400 in December, (after being thoroughly disappointed with my Invicta purchased 5 years ago), because I had heard that they were a good watch. It does not seem to be the greatest. It has lost about 34" in the last two days, and seems to fluctuate between -15" and - 25" per day. Am I expecting too much, or is this acceptable? Is it possible to find a fairly accurate watch, +/- 30" per week or month for less than $2000.00? Help!

Also, I sent my dad's old Bulova Oceanographer Snorkel Automatic to Bulova for repair about 20 years ago, and they told me they no longer manufactured the part needed to repair the Automatic winding mechanism. Does anyone think it is possible to have it repaired and have a suggestion as to where I could send it?

Thanks in advance for your help, and I look forward to enjoying the forum!
