A couple watch notes: Regarding automatic movements, this is a good link: http://www.orientalwatchsite.com/how-to-start-a-stopped-automatic-watch-movement/
I recently purchased a new Tauchmeister (photos and brief review coming to Herculodge soon). It's my first fully automatic. I have an Aeromatic self winder, but that one can also be wound by hand after it stops. This new Tauchmeister----must be worn to stay wound. If it stops, it must be reset, "wound" by motion and worn to get back in a groove. My preliminary thought is that it is too much trouble, too complicated. I don't regret the purchase because I love the watch----but they make similar ones with a quartz movement and though it's okay to have one like this, I don't think I'll want more. Other note----on watch sizes: I didn't go "all in" on the mammoth oversized cases. I have one that is over 50MM (I think 52, another Tauchmeister). Others are in the 43-47 range. And I still have many of my older watches in the collection-----with traditionally smaller cases. I enjoy wearing those too. Like neckties, this watch size saga might go back and forth a few times.

But we all knew this, Herc, which is why we read your cutting edge site ;).
