  7. Gravitymaster for the daytime: Apologies if it’s not a Parnis fitted with watch parts shared with fake watches but it’s all I can afford right now. Off to look for watches fitted with conflict diamonds now...

  16. Morning, A prezzie from a friend a few years ago, it’ll be this Poljot today with its 17j 2614.2H. The crown isn’t right and we were never totally convinced by its seconds hand, but it has a few cheery touches which warrant a bit of a wearing during each Festive Season. Regards.

  20. 1974 6139, roulette sunday. What movement is it? Is it a 6319A im guessing it is with the 21j. If so its an old work horse likely to go on forever. Is it an arabic date wheel? If so im guessing its 80s in decade and the first number for year. My old seiko autos have been the same. Slightest movement and they start. The movements for the 5s in the late 70s 80s were mostly off shoots of the 6309 17j that came in the divers. Old donkeys that keep going like a w123 taxi in morocco.

  24. I have no idea how old this is, but the movement looks quite old and the power reserve not up to much, but that doesn't matter on the wrist as the slightest movement is enough to put the absent energy back in and keep it ticking along. Doesn't hack or wind but it has a lovely golden glow (warmer IRL than it looks here) and, since I attacked it with a pair of blunt tweezers, the hands even line up properly, on 12 at the o'clock. Win win! The Super-engineer bracelet, from Watch Gecko, is currently doing the rounds of my 20mm-lug watches, but has settled for quite a while on this one. Apologies if it is more recent than I think, but posting it here saved me reading the young-un's rant on the junior thread. #firstworldproblems. HAGD! Bulova looks great, there are lots like it but this is one of the better interpretations.

  27. I would say not that many know much about watches... they know you cant go wrong with a Rolex, its safe, everybody knows they are decent. A small minority of Rolex owners know the ins and outs of a ducks arse... of all watch fanboys the Rolex ones seem to be the most thorough in knowing every model number and detail of these watches... but on the whole I would say they are a pretty clueless bunch who just believe the hype and create this bullet proof market which self perpetuates the value of the brand. When I was the one watch guy it was the AP royal oak classic. Very few comments on that one...in ten years I think only three comments were made. I had that many comments on the Rolex in the first week. On this forum the adulation is not strong, we are all watch guys...I would like to think we appreciate watches for less shallow reasons. Go into the world though...its all aspirations of German cars and Rolex watches.

  28. No not really, but I like the brand and several of their watches particularly the Datejust and Daytona. I just can't afford one. I don't understand why the brand gets so much hatred. They are obviously doing something right, and they have an excellent heritage. Cheers Martin

  31. all apart from the sapphire crystal are present in my seiko helmet, though round i expect it would be the exception that proves the rules above as i dont think there have been many helmet shape watches for years perhaps not that popular since the seiko helmet and mk III speedy? I guess the speedy fulfills all their criteria? And probably isnt that common in case shape, but on the face of it it has them all.

  33. I think hatred is a bit strong, certainly for me, I think most people just find the adulation a little irritating!

  39. Yes indeed check out the Omega Jedi & Darth Vadar and the Anakin Skywalker Seamaster. I think some version of the ChucK Maddox website remains, it makes for some great reading on vintage Omega chronos. Cheers Martin

  40. Another cracker martin. Amazing simularity between the hour minute and seconds hands that both omega were using and seiko for the 6139 chronographs that came out in 1969. Just looking at my 74 6139 now and the designs are identical.

  41. You all know my stance on this.... OP it might be wise to do a search on the forums. The topic has been done to death over the years and nothing has changed since.
