    I dress down every day but.. lately I've been wearing some vintage wrist wear. Trying some new straps for a new lease of life. Today, ERC, German, little else known. Long live the golden oldies!

    Velcro! 31659 : hacking version of the 3133. Bit of corrosion on the blued hands but c'mon, it's dress down Friday! So, fast-wrap strap for when I change into my 3rd-best spacesuit later, for a little extra-vehicular activity. What are you breaking out? (Watch related please, there's an off-topic forum for advice on your friend's rash ...)

    So this is my beloved SARB033. I have quite a few watches (I made the rookie mistake of buying loads of cheap watches when I first got into this hobby earlier last year). Some are nicer than others. However, for some reason I am totally drawn to this one. I think it's absolutely beautiful. I wear it much more than the others. I only wear the rest in order to get some wrist time out of them. This is a new brown strap I bought yday. What do you guys think? Ultimately I want to buy a Grand Seiko or two, but even then I don't think I want to neglect my SARB033! Maybe I'll just stick with this for the foreseeable future!

    Afternoon change over to this vintage Zenith Respirator 28800 circa 1972. Unfortunately the gasket failed over time and caused dial damage, it is a shame but I still like it. More infor here

    Still the platinum blonde weekdater...ordered her a stelux nos from the 60s last next. Shes so pretty.... The plots battons call them what you will are actually clear as crystal and reflect back silver off the blond dial head on.

    Well, despite the fact that I've been considering slimming down my collection this year, I just couldn't resist this lovely Fat Face watch, picked up on ebay this week for a bargain £15.90: Condition was better than expected, and I just needed to take off the strap and clean it with Glyptone leather cleaner, followed by a wipe over with Glyptone conditioner. The watch head was in better condition than I'd expected, and only needed a quick rub with AutoSol to clean it up: As is pretty normal for these cheapies, it needed a battery (which is no problem, obviously) and with the separate digital display I was expecting 2 batteries to be inside. However, it only needed one 399 battery to power both analogue and digital. As expected, it fired up straight away, and works fine: The strap was a tricky bugger to get back on. It's curved to fit into the lugs, which looks nice, but was a very tight fit and difficult to get the pins properly located. Anyway, it's sorted now, and this is the finished result: The digital display has a choice of date, alarm, stopwatch, or time. As it's quite small and hard to read without my glasses, I'm not really bothered which display is showing Very pleased with this one, any comments welcome as always

    I bought this ol Venus of that well known auction site. As you can see it needs fixing. I bought it mainly due to the machine turned dial, which rather caught my eye. So let's see those elaborate faces.

    OK, I'll join you with this 38mm Aidix from the 1940s. Difficult to see, but the light coloured radial beams are ridged rather than painted. Regards..

    Thanks @Nigelp Number one undervalued classic! Cool. It is a 1969 Elan +2 that has had the roof chopped off. There are about 70 of these Christopher Neal convertibles about, so I get a rare 4 seater soft top sports car rather than a GT. All the strength in a Lotus is in the backbone chassis, so loosing the roof doesn't massively alter the rigidity (they are not that rigid to start with!). I intend on replacing the radiator and fuel tank with alloy ones, reinstating the glovebox for those raybans, and then a possible list of upgrades to make it more 21st century whilst keeping the 60's feel (such as driveshaft CV conversion, remote central locking, and anything else I think Colin Chapman would do)

    ive owned a couple of unos from the 60's really well made and under appreciated with some interesting swiss movements. I can see where IWC got their numerals from for the Portuguese now

    It has never been so important to buy the dealer rather than the watch... and get yourself a jewellers loupe...be careful out there.

    Bracelet looks cool too. I managed to get an old stelux off the bay with the curved ends 19mm to fit the case on my 6619 to complete the 60s look. There were only 2 for sale on the bay. Been on display in a jewellers shop for years apparantly.

    I was quite surprised by the whole range and it's diversity. Obviously some are of course absolutely bleeding fugly, but to be fair the rest are even ruddy worse! At least no bugger will ever steal one of these travisties from your wrist.
