    Absolutely bucketing outside and really windy, and I've just realised I've left the bacon that was to be this morning's breakfast at my mum's house.

    And my birthyearish watch, 64/65 Poljot Cal 3017 'Strela'. People can go on about the Speedy but the centre seconds hand on this alone wins it for me

    For today it’ll be this 1950s Renov with an 18j date version of the Parrenin 90 and antichoc 102. Never yet found anything about Renov watches other than a registration in 1971 by the Swiss Mondaine-owned Constructa Watch Co, producers of (mainly) pin-lever movements. This one clearly isn’t one of these, so who knows, perhaps Mondaine/Constructa had merely resurrected a dormant brand name. Almost certainly French-made, but just another little mystery joining those awaiting a solution maybe sometime, maybe not. Regards.

    I don’t have any vintage pieces, so I’m starting the day with my definitely newer Casio. Great for a night-time time check!

    Still this, from 1970s I assume. Needs a better strap. Any suggestions?

    As far as accuracy goes, my Casio is top of the pile - but it’s a Wave Ceptor so it would be. I’m currently after a new one of these; bluetooth linked and a nifty load of rotation when switching time zones, all via an iPhone app. Cool! Gus Jones have some in stock, just gathering up the spare pennies

    Old pic, because I couldn't be ar_ed, lazy Sundays Seiko JDM SBDC051J1 Just add nine days on and forget where the hands are. It's a 6r15 movement, it's never going to be accurate! Enjoy your Sunday guys, stay out of the wind and rain.

    I have a story about Spynie... I once spent 3 hours trying to persuade a young fawn to go between a gap in a fence as it had been stuck in a fenced field for over a week. It was bitterly cold and snowing, it was my good deed for Christmas, but I was quite ill with Lyme Disease at the time so I spent a week in bed after saving Bambi. But Spynie is a nice place to spend a couple of hours, just don't try deer herding.

    I have lots of watches that are very accurate, several are 3133 chronos, but, irritatingly, they drop those few seconds per day rather than gain them - big difference between arriving a minute early and a minute late! So my Citizen AT does get an airing on busy days ... meanwhile I am going radio controlled for a different reason, I have a fence to fix! G-shock is go.

    whats the lug size i just got a nice hirsch for 19 quid off this supplier on the bay ive used before they are fine. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-HIRSCH-FOREST-BLACK-LEATHER-WATCH-STRAP/183492400601?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=690873269142&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 Ive got it just in case my SARB drops off my wrist @BondandBigM in fact i might superglue the pins in like i had to on a mid 90s Omega Semaster prebond i had...i cleaned the bracelet and the pins had only been held in with muck. They had worn thin and were about as secure as a wet paper bag...i could have got new ones but i couldnt be bothered, in the end it got lost. Im sure i left it in the glove compartment when i sold my old 928s2. Which was also a bit tired.
