  3. Pierce Cal 130 Mono-pusher - 1938 I think going off the baguette pusher. Not everyone will service them, because there's a bit in the friction system, that runs the chrono seconds hand, that's made out of Pacific Weevil Silk, or something Mine is still going, so fingers crossed. Vintage watch strap by vintagewatchstraps. 16mm RAF style NATO (no loop) - 2 leather keepers, one fixed, one floating. Enjoy your watches, I will! JJ

  11. A friendly DPD delivery man has just been to see me and this is what he left I was a little nervous about ordering as I haven’t had a Chris w before and this model seemed to generate lots of interesting comments.....however..... It is gorgeous.....it feels heavy and well made, the 40mm is a perfect size, the dial is beautiful - all in all I am super pleased. It compares very well in quality to my 36mm OP. In short I am very happy that I took the plunge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. I do like hexagonal.... Yours is the 8223-5040 variation from about 1981/2? I have one the same and a pair of 7123-534A's from the same period.... Sadly all three would benefit from new crystals, which are not easy to find at a reasonable price....

  21. The Proteus was delivered this afternoon, and I’m extremely pleased with it. I’m not a fan of bracelets, so that came off immediately, and on to this NATO I had which works ok I think. The bracelet seemed to be well made with solid end links and a good weight. The watch itself isn’t too big (I know others were undecided because of the size), Not overly chunky or heavy for a 300m diver. The knurling on the crown adds a nice finish and the logo on the crown is the right way up, something my OCD appreciates! The finish on the dial is a matte grainy off white with matching dat

  22. Well my one has this style bracelet, which appears to be the original from new. I cannot find any hexagonal watches in either the 1980 or 1981 JDM catalogues, which leads me to believe that they were for the export market only...... To adjust the length you lift the top front section which allows you to slide the clasp along the bracelet, then when you have the right position you click it back down again to lock it... The underside of the movable part here:- While we are on the subject of hexagonal watches, this is my earlier 0903-5017 from 1975.....

  28. I like the look of bracelets but have yet to find/have one that I feel comfortable wearing and/or doesn’t give my wrist hair a good tugging. Therefore I prefer wearing leather or rubber but NATOs are by far the comfiest to wear, and I don’t mind how they look.

  29. Not sure if this counts as interesting, or watch related, but it did come from @Roy so I guess there is a vague connection anyway: I think the other side is better (I've hardly changed since that photo was taken):

  31. Courtesy of Drop.com (used to be Massdrop). For the princely sum of $99 = $5 shipping (plus of course the VAT and the Post Office's Cut £25). Have to say I am well chuffed, I didn't actually read the ad properly I assumed I was getting a quartz watch, well you would at $99, wouldn't you? But no It's an auto, obviously not the best movement on the planet but for £109 0n the wrist, I am well happy. I like rose gold and always have, that coupled with a black dial reminiscent of the Seiko Alpinist (always loved those fingers), plus day, date, month and year (although limited to the

  33. Congrats on your new piece! I've always loved C.Ward, only negative for me is the big brand name across it (I'd prefer just the logo in the usual place IMHO), but thats their style so it stands out. How thin is it? Looks a lovely piece. Gotta love that trident!

  34. Just for info. I have bought three watches from drop.com and have made significant savings on each. The only downside is that you may jave to wait 6-8 weeks for delivery. I don't find this an issue considering the savings. I once bought a Seiko monster at less than half the UK selling price. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

  38. Ever since writing my topic for the Forum about the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms dive watch, I have been in love with the classic form of dive watch so beautifully represented by the earlier Fifty Fathoms watches - restrained styling, black dial and black bezel. I knew that I would have to find a watch redolent of that classic form that I could afford, and I bought my rather beautiful Storm black dive watch, which has a privileged position in my collection. Having acquired the Storm model, I thought I had finally scratched the itch caused my desire for a classic black dial/black bezel dive wat
