  2. Happy weekend everyone! Got through the Zeniths in the week, so thought I'd go for this one which hasn't been out of the box in a while...

  3. Morning, It’ll be this steel-cased Avia-matic today. Probably from around 1960, it runs on a 25j AS 1674 auto and is another one with an off-centre oscillating weight. Per Ranfft, “The winding gear is integrated in the movement, instead of attaching it to a manual-wind calibre as usual. This led to a sensationally thin movement at that time”. Whilst poor old Avia has had a rather chequered history in recent decades, this one dates from when the original company’s watches were synonymous with really quite decent quality. The name is now owned, I believe, by Fossil and Avia-branded watches can be bought today from the world’s largest on-line retailer. Regards.

  7. It arrived Porsche Design model 1919 Datetimer. All titanium construction, so despite the bulk the weight is not there, Cool lug design and it is also available on a rubber strap, which might make it more comfortable but won't be easy to replace when needed. Very legible dial. Is it worth €3,350? I not sure - i'd see it as a rival for brands like Oris's Titanium Aquis at £1,750 (Although the Porsche Design is a much more original looking watch, and Oris want £6k for their original looking ProPilot on Titanium ) The only Titanium TAG Heuer on their website is a Carrera, at nearly £20k!

  8. I don't expect anyone to understand the affection I have for this watch, but, the story behind it may resonate with other collectors who buy on Ebay. I saw an 'odd looking', 'ugly' 'not working' watch on Ebay and placed a bid not even caring if I won as I didn't particularly like it or want it. I won the auction to my dismay. The watch arrived, and, in the flesh it had something that did not appear in the photos on the Ebay listing. New movement fitted, and on the wrist it feels as special as my Rolex. Funny how some watches punch well above their price. This one is a keeper as it is more than the sum of it's parts. Seiko 7T92-0FW0 (another bad photo on my not so smart phone)

  18. Yeah but food and toothpaste not so good as drugs for helping you forget you it's rice and spinach every day otherwise. Not sure how long I would manage in a lifetime of deprivation, poverty, and poor access to education. No matter how poor here, at least I can always get clean water to brush my teeth in. Moving on. Not everyone likes a Russian watch on a NATO strap, but I have tried a lot of bands on this, and so far this works best for me, picks up the black inner bezel. I have a black leather plain 'one-piece', but the spring bars are too close to the case even to force it.

  20. G Shock MR-G today. The best G Shock I have in the collection with the high price partly attributable to the titanium case being outsourced to Seiko to manufacture and finish: Popped into a village towards the north eastern part of Thailand to see a friend I haven’t seen for a while. If you think you’ve seen chavs on Jeremy Kyle with crooked teeth and poor hygiene you should see the village people in Thailand! No money for any necessities but plenty of money for drugs and alcohol. Not the kind of place you want to visit as a tourist; better sticking to cities like I do. At least the dogs are happy: Have a great weekend everyone!

  41. !Batman!...The sellers pictures are awful and the crystal needs a good poly, but it is said to be working, and ive really been after a fat 'batman' and this is a birth year with the purple black dial dial and original bracelet. Some people call this the Batman because of the case shape and some the dynamic...crazy kids i know...but they really do look like the marvel comics symbol for batman from the 60's and i love the fat case. It will fir well with the current collection (now ive sold my dressy dolce to my dad - hes a shirt and tie man...im the black sheep of the family...). Poor pic...but i reckon it will look a bit special when it arrives.

  44. I thought it was worth sporting £20 on this hand-winding Zand, with 21J Lorsa P62. Probably I was robbed, but it does give me something to post in the "Letter Z in Horology" thread, when it comes around, so well worth it just for that. I may also have been attracted to the sun-ray pattern on the dial. 34mm case, 18mm lugs. Came on a bracelet I don't like, now waiting for a strap, and probably a new crystal. It's kept good time over night. Does anyone know who owned the Zand brand? I've seen a few other watches online, but no information. Also intrigued by the C/SW 161 on the movement. Does that give any clues?

  45. I'm assuming the intermediate links are gold plated? If so, this company offer a selective plating process which can plate/re-plate individual links. I used them to re-plate my Mickey Mouse watch in 18ct...it was around the £55 mark. Not the thickest of plating, but mine shows no sign of wear yet after 7 years. Might be worth a call? https://easyelectroplating.co.uk/articles/gold-plating-watches-clocks/
