  3. Morning, It’ll be another of these Sears’ Tradition Electronic jobs today, this one also driven by the 13j ESA 9154 and rather more in keeping with my preferred styling. Regards.

  6. Lost & found, some may remember me mentioning a few weeks ago that I had mislaid my Almirante watch.... Well, yesterday Caroline found it in a most unlikely place behind a book case, which I had checked when it first went awol* Anyway, here it is with the replacement I bought... ALMIRANTE Navegante (Crepas/Tactico Group, Spain) Seiko Cal. NH38A, 24 Jewels * I blame Trump & Johnson

  9. 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

  11. Just trying out my new (to me) camera ... a Panasonic DMC-TZ7. Today I'm wearing my TC-9 Watches 1970's Diver in stainless steel (300m & Seiko NH35 movt) very nicely made & it definitely qualifies as a solid lump

  15. What's the back story on this one, old sub with a green bezel insert ?? Needless to say I'll stand corrected but it just doesn't look right.

  16. 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

  17. 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:

  21. As a collector of Limit watches, I am acutely aware of the frustration engendered by collecting items from a company where the early history of that company has, well, vanished. Thus it is with some trepidation that I embark on a topic about the Avia Watch Company, only in this case I am seemingly not alone in my quest for relevant information, as there have been other queries about Avia made online, without much success. This paucity of information is neatly summed up in "Faded London" (faded-london.blogspot.co.uk/2011_09_archive.html) where a blogger discusses a 1950s Avia advertising plaqu

  23. It could well be I got it from China for £4.40 delivered, just wanted to see what my Sub would look like with a green bezel. The hands are wrong and It's not got the Maxi dial of an LV. Fear not I haven't been duped it's my 16610 with a cheap green bezel on it, I have no plans for it to remain on for too long.

  27. the plip on that 'LV' looks exactly like the one on the Alpha I had! I never realised Alpha got things so close. Amazing it looks just the same.

  29. So many two steppers? I have only ever had quartz watches that do 5 second jumps. Regardless it is an excellent feature.

  31. Your best bet is EBay or start getting involved in military watch forums and build up your post count in order to use their sales forums. You will likely get a better price on EBay than selling to a dealer.

  32. That's a great collection. We must have very similar taste as I like almost all of your watches. Well done.

  34. I will have to get the back off again to check I used the correct battery. I broke the crystal even using a press to get the back on! I thought it was on at one point then after about two minutes it pinged off again. Replacement of the crystal was easy though.

  35. Are you based in London? If further north the watch fair is next weekend in Birmingham and there is a military watch dealer there usually. She would be able to give you trade prices for all of them. At worse she isn't there and you go to a watch fair, so nothing to loose

  36. One of the nicest watch dials I had was this Seiko 'The Great Blue' (a 7T32) which had an iridescent, sparkly dial similar to an Omega Megaquartz 'Stardust' one. It changed colours as you tilted it in the light.

  39. 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
