  18. Morning, This Cort will see some daylight today. It was a sub-brand of Tuesday’s Cortébert but runs with a 17j ST 1686 as opposed to one of their in-house movements. The name was first registered in 1959 and this one doesn’t appear to be too much later than that. Regards.

  20. Going to be playing with the regulator today on this it was gaining like the local bookies before i knocked a bit off. The balance was going like the clappers. About half hour in 2 hours. Well after going right over to minus at 2 o clock yesterday its lost 5 minutes at 9 this morning. So it needs a gentle nudge. It amazing how our perceptions change after wearing 40 plus mm vintage 70s seikos i had to measure this to confirm it really is 37mm (which it is) ! As it feels small. Sportsmatic 5 weekdater its a 67 so its the first year the 5 logo was used and still does not appear

  25. Harmful thread and I don't think I've seen similar.... How often do you take the plunge on a new addition? Think I had about 4 (half decent) newbies in 2019 but that was quite prolific for me.... Rekon I get myself an new one once every 4-6 months. Only purchase of 2020 this far is quite extravagant for me* so will be a good few months before the next... Cheaper watches can come & go more frequently. * (3rd Oris that I now own) Be interesting to see @GASHEAD response

  29. In 1978 Sigmund Jähn became the first German "astronaut". On his mission he carried four Ruhla watches. Three of them were presents for his Russian colleagues. These Ruhla watches then became the first German watches in space. The watches were special souvenirs for the Kosmonauts, they were Quartz and used the new Ruhla quartz watch calibre 28-40. For the more serious work you will notice as well as the Ruhla watches worn on their wrists, the two Kosmonauts are wearing Poljot chronographs On top of their space suits. On August 26, 1978, Sigmund Jähn and the Russian cos

  36. Ok I'm an addict. I've probably been averaging around 20 per year but now down to only 3 in the last four months. I like to give everything a try, very few brands that I haven't owned, but I tend to get bored easily and almost everything ends up getting sold. The collection is only in the forties.

  37. I came across this watch whilst doing some research on a non watch related subject; The Nairn Transport Company. This company was set up around 1923 By brothers Gerald and Norman Nairn from New Zealand. Initially they used cars, Buicks and Cadillacs, when the 650-mile (1047 km) desert route from Beirut to Baghdad was opened, and to begin with was an overland mail service which replaced what was described as a "fast camel service" which often got robbed by bandits. In 1926 the cars were replaced by 16 seater busses, which were replaced in 1932 by double decker trailed (articulat

  38. £2250 more than the spectre 300m when that was released which included both ss & nato straps. To me it is Swatch group just plucking numbers out of the skyfall! Time to live & let die... They can shove it up there goldeneye

  39. With a mechanical watch I would wonder if there was a slight friction / colliding between any part of the sweep second and minute hand. The hands may not be loose but just slightly out of alignment. With the crown in the setting position you could try slowly advancing the time for 12 / 24 hours and if you see the sweep second move at any point then check the position of the hands to see if any contact is being made. If there isn’t it may still help to identify if this is happening at specific times or randomly. My only other thought would be if there is an online manual for this model w

  45. Already hit my buying quota for today (and it is a bit of a grail for me!), and the postman has dropped off another one for me to play with. This 'job' is ace!

  46. On average, daily! Okay, so I have to replace sold watches but the thrill of buying new ones hasn't left me yet. Buying is still more exciting than selling, which isn't the ideal situation for a business!
