I enjoy reading the reviews and ogling the pictures of all of the high-end luxury wristwatches on Hodinkee
. Is there an equivalent magazine for less-affluent wristwatch enthusiasts? Those of us in the sub $1K price range? I would prefer a well-written news and review site to a forum of collectors, but if there are some forums of with exceptionally high-quality pics and reviews I would be okay with that.
How do I buy a cheap fake Rolex outside of New York? [more inside]
I recently bought a pocket watch (photos: one two three
), and I was hoping to find out something about the company that made it. The brand is "Three Stars" and it's supposedly Swiss. I can't find anything searching because the name collides with a lot of things (including a line of wrist watches that seems unrelated), but am I missing something? [more inside]
From 1967 until his death, my dad wore a perpetual-movement stainless steel watch that my mother gave him when they got married. He always said it was an "incognito Rolex," and I've recently learned that there might be some truth to that. Watch-loving MeFites, can you help me discover my watch's history and teach me how to change the date on its face? [more inside]
I have a Molnija watch with a busted mainspring (picture of front

I recently received a Pulsar watch as a gift that came with this manual
. I can set the time and date, reset the stopwatch, etc., just fine, but I can't get the watch to actually start. This is my first dress watch, so I'm wondering if there's something so painfully obvious that the manual doesn't even mention it and I'm just missing it. I have a job interview in a couple hours and a functioning watch on my wrist would be lovely, so, any help from more experienced watchwearers out there would be appreciated.

Looking to purchase a handful of reasonably-priced ($100) pocket watches, but would like to see/check them out first, so am hesitant to use eBay. I really like old Molnija watches
but I don't see anyway I could get a handful in the next couple of weeks. I also like the Swiss Army pocket watches but don't like that they are close to $200 and don't have plated covers. Where is a good place to go check out some pocket watches (western and central Pennsylvania if possible)? Are they even sold in stores or does one absolutely have to get something like that online? If finding such things in a short window (must be purchased in next week and a half) is going to be an incredibly low-probability event, then does the hive mind have suggestions for other interesting and semi-permanent gifts for men?

Looking for a watch that tells near-perfect time, doesn't require winding or battery replacement, has a comfortable band in hot and cold weather and will last at least 10 years. It just needs to show the time and preferably the date. It's either got to be something very special, or at the lowest price which meets the above standards. Style and uncomplicatedness a bonus.
