  3. Thought this deserved a wider audience than the Japanese section of the forum but happy for it to be moved if the mods see fit to do so. I purchased this Seiko Helmet 6139-7100 from our esteemed host Roy a couple of months ago so @Roy I hope you approve. It was in a bit of a state but worthy of some TLC. Back of case pitted and the movement though running was a mess. So what's been done? The case has been tidied up not 100% perfect but very much better than before. In the lathe to have a bit of a trim to have an insert fitted thus making a good seal for the case back. AFTER Insert fitted: Top of case has been lightly refinished. Movement Transmission wheel and pivot hole ruined so new wheel required and hole jeweled which is an improvement. See how worn the hole is: This was found also botched pivot hole repair on a plate this has also been jeweled. Rotor has also been replaced. Completed Movement with the rotor attached. Hands have been restored and re lumed but I decided on orange hands for the subdial and chrono as opposed to the original yellow. All seals have been replaced and new pusher springs fitted and I have fitted a fishbone bracelet to the Watch. Before. After Watch is currently running at +3 seconds a day so not bad at all A winner in my book.

  15. Movado Calenodoplan Sport. cal.128 Early 1950s. Needs a new crystal as it's cracked, scratched and discoloured, luckily the two tone dial is very good. The strap's 1mm too narrow as unusually for a Movado, it takes a 17mm strap.

  21. I was setting the date on this: when the date wheel decided that it did not want to move. So, a delve into the innards was needed. Once I had the dial off, I thought it would be a shame not to try a different one. One thing lead to another, and this is the result. The second hand needs a wee nip off the end, but, overall, I like it. Steve.

  26. So these turned up today, the lad is about to start his training with the RAF and the kit list stated ‘inexpensive digital watch. Amazon duly obliged, purchased us one each and I’ll wear mine as hes goes through his training. Have a great weekend everyone.

  27. I'd been looking for a good deal on one of these for a while, and one came up while I was away for a few weeks. I had it delivered to a friend and picked it up today. First impressions are very good. The blue sunburst dial is lovely, the fit and finish is first class, and I love the retro looks. I need to buy a vintage style leather strap to go with it - can't decide whether to go for black or dark brown. Strap suggestions are welcome.

  33. I really like this Australia only limited edition version of the Autavia Heuer 02 150 being produced, the blue dial seems to work better than the regular black dial. Only AUD$7800

  35. That looks stunningly good, @NOTSHARP. What a great dial and I love the colour of that bezeI, especially against the similar tone of leather in the strap. I do agree with you though that the seconds hand needs a tiny bit off the tip. Well done for that creation, Steve.

  36. Had my newsletter through late last night to say they have introduced some chronos: https://farer.com/collections/chronograph Width: 39mm Height: 12.5mm Lug2Lug: 45mm Lug width: 20mm Movement: ETA 2894-2 Elaboré WR: 10atm Crystal: Sapphire £1,675 Looks like only 100 of each model, although only numbers 11-100 for sale, so limited stock. Not sure about the chocolate dial, but the other two look quite nice.

  39. @Always"watching" at present it will be going the other way as I don't have the machinery for printing the logo onto the dial . I'll be using a blue black enamel like this instead of the black in the image above. @Tazmo61 ta muchly!

  40. As always, thanks for sharing and for a very enjoyable and interesting read. Congratulations also for finally managing to acquire a watch with the “Hayfork” complication. It’s a great looking watch and looks also to have been purchased at a very good price so well done.
