  1. While I was away, dear old @Davey P (Hey!...less of the 'old', I hear you cry! ) posted that he had received a package of watches from his B-I-L and kindly offered them up on here. I was lucky enough to be sent one... a Casio Illuminator which looked very interesting. So you can imagine my delight when as soon as I got home yesterday, there was a nice padded envelope sitting on top of my pile of mail, with 'Roger the Dodger' emblazoned across the top. Inside was a carefully wrapped box containing the watch. It looked lovely...typical vintage (probably 20 years +) Casio, and hardly any marks o

  16. Morning, I am still road testing this : I did buy some stainless pusher buttons because the stop/start button is a bit manky, but they are not quite the same shape - the new ones are ever so slightly bulbous, so I just turned the old ones round so you don't see the manky bit. HAGD

  21. Morning, Today this Waldman, probably 1960s and with a 17j version of the ever-popular Baumgartner 34. The brand is attributed to one Hans Beat Waldmann (double “n”) of Porrentruy. Regards.

  23. Having done the croco, in deference to all the guilloche and gilt hands, I thought it might be an idea to go a bit industrial because it is, after all, quite a chunk of watch, especially with the display back, so I put it on an old car tyre. "No watch is strong unless it has within it's character antitheses strongly marked." to paraphrase Blaise Pascal I have the white dial version running awful slow - I changed the battery too and the case back was a swine! I'll have to take it apart again .... The movement is as per a Frederique Constant model, but available

  24. Sorry folks, going smart today with the Suunto so I can record the stats of my swim. It sits pretty well on the wrist considering its 50mm.

  27. Here's where we are at the moment. Early Swatch Irony Automatic. Probably the earliest watch I bought from new. Circa 1994 perhaps? Doesn't get any wear time these days and doesn't keep brilliant time now, but fairly unusual. Nautica Diver. Not a brand you see a lot of and one of only a couple of quartz watches I own. The detailing on the face is lovely and it feels well made with some nice engraving on the back. Wife picked this up for me while she was on holiday a few years ago. Quite large for my skinny girl's wrists but it wears suprisingly comfortabl

  30. Just got hold of a used Timefactors rivet bracelet for my Smiths PRS-25 Watch. Is it better than the original with the chunky clasp? well in some ways yes, the clasp is smaller and simpler though I have no problem with the original tbh. Overall design matches the Watch head better, fit and finish is on par with the original, I do like the taper from 20mm to 16mm (clasp is 18mm) so overall very happy I bought it. Pictures:

  31. Cheap chinese watches, not sure what the new ones are like, as the website has been re branded and all. But the one I have is decent enough for the money.Ignore the silly rrp these can be picked up for around £100. It keeps time to around +/- 4 sec a day or so, mine has great accuracy, I may have got lucky. But the rotor noise is loud. I think they are good as a non-wis gift or entry into autos. Although for about £50 more your into seiko, orient , tissot etc. I recommend to go this route .

  33. Dear @Graham60, I thought on spotting this thread that it was going to be a thread for kids and their watches rather than watches post-1990. Silly me...

  34. Mate, you are more than welcome, I'm so glad it works perfectly (although as it's a Casio I'm not at all surprised) It's always great to give something back on here, and you've made a cracking job of bringing it back to life, well done that man Wear it in health me old mucker

  35. If it’s anything like Lip another french brand I honestly think you are buying for nostalgia more than anything else. I had one the quality was ok but felt very micro brand in build and I suspect it’s a lot of Asian parts shipped in and final build in France.

  39. You have no idea how delighted I am by this watch. To some it might look a bit innocuous or retro or old school or too simple, but I don’t mind saying I absolutely love it. The Lume is fantastic and it sits beautifully on the wrist, being a perfect 40.5mm in diameter and and not too chunky at just 11mm thick. The movement is COSC certified and after a recent service it is operating just within the prescribed tolerances. The second hand has a beautiful smooth sweep and I am loving the big date display. The vast majority of the Mille Miglia commemorative watches have a cyclops mag
