  2. Morning, Remember the good old days in Primary School when the teacher provided blobs of mercury and challenged you to chase them all over your desk trying to pin them down with a finger? No? Oh well, I do, and attempting to definitively establish the maker of today’s watch has been equally unsuccessful. Driven by a 17j FHF/ST 96-4, It’s an Old England which would make one think of the original Accurist company whose Richard Loftus introduced an Old England brand in the mid-60s. However, those were unisex “fashion” watches, usually with a 1j EB 8800, designed to capture the zeitgeist of the “Swinging Sixties” and, unlike mine, had the dial wordmark in a mediaeval-style typeface. Elsewhere, I’ve also seen what is probably a gent’s watch, with my style of typeface on the dial but signed Old England Watches Ltd 1968 in “ye olde” version on the case back and driven by an ETA-derived Benrus movement. The presence of “Shockmaster” on today’s dial, although also associated with Gunzinger Bros, still points me towards the old Accurist concern, but I haven’t stumbled across another example quite like this one and what may be an import code of TXb on the bridge has led me nowhere. Regards.

  7. There are two sorts of watch people: those who get excited by kanji dates wheels and those who don't. I do. I'm not proud of that but I can't help it.

  11. Every day I check in to see all the beautiful watches that are new, old, or vintage, and today I am going to post a picture of a watch I am wearing (which is what the thread is about), but I am pretty sure I might (if I'm lucky) get one or two likes. I bought this watch purely because I wanted the original 1960's Seiko box it was in. BUT...it keeps great time, it looks terrible, lets call it 'rustic' or 'rust-tick', but I now love this little old watch, it's greater than the sum of it's parts. Seiko 6205-8940 Made August 1965

  16. Developing a tendency ... HAGD It just happens sometimes, there's no saying which thread people will click on first but most likely the new one higher up the page. It takes me well over a minute to start a thread so I could be composing it thinking I'm first, meanwhile you submit yours, then I submit mine and it goes above yours. To avoid this and shorten the time we could be simultaneously composing threads, I post my thread very quickly with just the photo - so it's there - then edit the thread for a few minutes to add my text in a less panicky way without having to wonder if someone else is in the middle of starting what they think is the first WRUW too.

  17. Since, personally, I'm not a big fan of dive watches - I find they look too chunky on my small wrist - and owning almost exclusively vintage timepieces, rainy days limit my choice of watches quite severly. I might be too cautious there, but better safe than sorry. So time and again I find myself wearing this 40mm MVMT on those days. Simple design, simple quartz movement, doesn't really care about the water, and the purple-ish blue sunburst dial makes me smile.

  18. Like @ong i can understand you just wearing one watch even owning just one watch forever and ever.... You need a rolex to stand out andy or a parnis. I would very much like to see an SOTC of all the Zeniths when you get chance Martin! Cheers nigel Thats one weird strap it looks to slim but im guessing its very comfortable, must have torque tubes like a porsche 928 to keep the watch head square? It looks superb its gen.

  19. I've been wearing my Steinhart Ocean GMT 39 for a couple of weeks now and find it hard to take off and change. It never used to be like this and now the other watches cower in their plush box wondering what's going to happen next.. Could this be the dreaded one watch syndrome, possibly more dangerous than the current virus going round (Cue dramatic music)

  21. I think this thread title should be changed to "First World Problems"...... Reminds me of our recent ski holiday, we were all sat around the dinner table and my mate's little girl (aged around 8 I think) suddenly announces "I need a new iPhone, the battery life on this one is no good!"

  22. I try and rotate mine but the quartz ones are getting ignored and the Air King too. SMP gets the most wrist time probably

  23. Twice now I've started a WRUW thread to have someone else start one a minute later which becomes the thread. It's there a new rule I'm missing or something? Feeling invisible...

  25. Similar issues with this, once it goes on it can stay on for days, if I'm going away for a few days it comes, if in in a rush it goes on... It's not a bad thing, all my watches get worn in rotation but this does it all so sees the most light of day. Once I've prized it off my wrist though, my others feel sooooo different, more special, vulnerable but I notice the differences more so all are ultimately enjoyable; I enjoy the others more for wearing them less frequently if that makes sense. Force yourself to rotate!!!

  26. I was looking very long for this model, i got very lucky and found a seller that had a huge bag full of old watches that he sold for 5$ each, then i saw that Seiko Olympic in there between those old watches and i immediatly bought it. Best purchase i ever made

  29. Why don't we have 2 threads one for watches and one for Parnis. One can be called wruw and feature thinks like seiko and rolex and casio etc. And one can be called what are you stroking. Which can feature people stroking cats dogs and their Parnis.

  30. I read the history of these and their use on Apollo missions, but personally not a fan. It just looks wrong on a large lugged modern watch.

  31. This Seiko 7T32-7F70 was £25 on ebay way back. The sellers pics were terrible, only 3 out of focus examples, but I took a punt. I won it, and when it arrived, it was filthy, but once cleaned, it was a mint example... no scratches on the crystal or case, and the bracelet just needed a light touch with a Scotchbrite pad to restore it to pristine condition. It's the only 7T32 I've kept, as I love it. I've had the other colours, blue and black, but this one stays.

  36. Higuchi Inc - great guy - I have bought Japan only models from him, good service, he even sourced extra bracelet links as Japan only models tend to have short bracelets Seiya Japan - also another great seller Downside is 20% VAT plus handling charge which is about another £15

  39. I think it must be catching! I’ve been going through a similar period with this: It is the first time I haven’t felt the need to rotate watches, I have been trying to force myself, but keep picking this up first!! I can see why, it’s a stunning looking watch!

  40. @ong I go through phases where I wear the same watch for a few weeks, then it starts to worry me ....... and I change over! Sounds like the change might be imminent
