    Postman's just dropped this 1979 Seiko Snowflake dialed King Quartz off. It looks much better in the flesh than the pictures. [emoji16] Sent from my HRY-LX1 using Tapatalk

    Been wearing this a bit more to test it prior to selling it, but now I don't wanna! When I first wound it after a long time in the box it lost like mad off the wrist, so I lost a potential buyer. Now I haven't needed to reset it for several days and it's keeping great time off and on the wrist. But of course my buyer has gone elsewhere. They know. And of course now I love it again. HAGD

    Just amazing to find a PR516 with an electronic movement still on the original strap from the early 1970s! Cool AF

    My wearable collection has now grown so much I'm starting to suffer from choice paralysis in the mornings. usually under these circumstances it would come down to my Smiths PRS-25 or todays watch but now I have too much choice damnit so decided to amortize the cost of this a bit more also I bloody love it.

    Another one that's had a new battery fitted this week, so a good enough reason to wear it. One of the many Fat Face watches in my collection:

    It's the Pioneer "Centre Seconds", which HMC thinks of as their "sports watch" -- screw down crown and 120m WR, so it comes on rubber. And, I have to admit it's the highest quality rubber strap I've ever set paws on. And, anyway -- don't want to repeat the GO colour scheme . . .

    A lot depends on what the watch is. If it is a Seiko 5, then it's not going to be a problem, if it is a a JLC, as mentioned above then it might, although it may not affect the price if it were sold where Portuguese is the native tongue.

    I know how you feel, it's a pest getting the angle and light just right for a photo, but you did a great job there. Mine is still on a black strap, but that brown/tan strap goes really well, maybe time for a change.

    SSDD week 2 of this one. best Seiko bracelet ever imho (certainly better than the MM) and almost as good timekeeping. dealing with joiners and plumbers quotes as a fresh batch of work on the new place ensues... also job hunting again - so that means a haircut I suppose, have already shaved off the 6 week beard

    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

    Hahahaha maybe a double-double misunderstanding I thought you thought I was peed off over something and I wasn't. I'm ripe for being ripped off which is why I won't buy off Ebay ever again, the truth is I'm just not that clued up on fakes and unless a Rolox was quartz and had Mickey Moose on the dial I wouldn't be able to tell

    I have lots of watches with foreign date wheels, I really enjoy them; I have several German, Spanish and couple of Italian and even some English ones It does not bother me, in fact I quite like the charm, I cant see any of them, so no matter... Cheers Martin If it is not a double date wheel you could have it changed to English, but it will obviously cost. Or you could learn the days of the week in another language... All good i think. Welcome to TWF btw!

    Not sure about 'the rules' but there are quite a few who do, or who have sub companies that do. It must be frustrating to be an AD and having 'streams' of people clamoring for a product that they do not have stock of. In this situation it makes perfect commercial sense to look after your high rollers and whales, people who will come in and drop 30,40, 50, 100 grand on your products just because they need a bit of retail therapy, rather than the 'true fan' who's saved his pennies for years for his grail or the one off guy who just wants a Rolex to show off down the pub or office and wants 0% finance over 5 years. It stinks, but it is what it is.

    Its also possible to buy the genuine article, new and used, from an authorised dealer. I still maintain the majority of this junk is bought intentionally by cheapskates who are as fake as the product. Of course there is a criminal element who will pass of this rubbish to the unwary, but as mentioned, the amount of forums dedicated to fakes, and the traffic that is on them would indicate where the real market is. And before "waiting list" is mentioned, do you think that someone who wants, and afford the real thing would touch this sh!t with a barge pole rather than wait a couple of years ?

    Don't beat yourself up because you got caught on Ebay...you are just buying a picture of what you hoped to receive and probably a picture of the genuine article..
